American Idol Season Seven Winner & Platinium Recording Artist DAVID COOK headlines Watseka Theatre Watseka IL on Friday Oct 18, 2013. A week following Cook's American Idol victory, in the Billboard chart week ending May 25, 2008, Cook broke several Billboard chart records. Most notable was his record shattering feat of having 11 songs debut on the Hot 100 that week, beating the previous record set by Miley Cyrus in 2006 when she had six songs debut on the chart. Cook's first single, "The Time of My Life" led the pack, debuting at number three on the Hot 100. Cook's eleven charting songs also gave him the most songs by one artist on the Hot 100 of any week in the Nielsen SoundScan era (which began in 1991), and the most of any era since The Beatles placed 14 songs on the chart the week of April 11, 1964. In addition, that same week Cook also broke the record for the most debuts on Billboard's Hot Digital Songs chart, where he placed 14 debut entries, the record of which was previously six set by Bon Jovi in 2007. Cook's 17 entries had a combined total of 944,000 digital downloads in the first week of selling. Cook also signed an endorsement deal with Skechers that ran through December 2009. Cook's photo was also featured on the cover of The World Almanac and Book of Facts 2009, along with President Barack Obama and Senator John McCain. Cook also won 08 Teen Choice Award "TV: Male Reality/Variety Star", 08 New Music Awards "Top 40 Male Artist of the Year", 09 Nashville Music Awards -Song of the Year – "Time of My Life" & 09 New Music Awards "Top 40 Male Artist of the Year". Cook performed the Fleetwood Mac hit "Little Lies" with American Idol season 8 winner Kris Allen and runner-up Adam Lambert on ABC's Good Morning America's Summer Concert Series in NYC's Central Park.
