From this story on Fox News:
“American Idol” introduced Kristy Lee Cook to America. Now the country singer is hoping that hunting will make her an American household name. This weekend, Cook debuted her new reality series, “Goin’ Country” on cable network Versus, where cameras chronicle the singer’s struggle to get a record deal while also following her on a series of hunting expeditions across the country. It’s the classic American story of a girl, her guitar, and her gun.



_She’s only been hunting for six years, but Cook already has an eagle eye. Just last month she took down a black bear that had been getting into mischief in her horse barn in Eagle Point, Oregon. “That bear had been causing trouble for five nights, eating grain and spooking my horses. He was making a mess of the whole barn,” Cook said. “One night I was walking in the house and I saw something standing in the door of my barn and I got him in one shot.”

Cook’s weapon of choice is as Browning 270 Winchester short magazine rifle. “It’s my trusty rifle and I use it for as much hunting and animals as I can take down,” Cook told Fox411. “It’s one shot, one kill.” It was the country singer’s decision to wear a Browning hat while competing on “American Idol” that inspired the firearms company to sign on as a sponsor of the hunting show. “I just wore the hat because I liked it,” Cook says. “But Browning saw it and they were so excited I was wearing their logo they saw it as an opportunity.” Each one of Cook’s eight-episode series on the sporting network Versus will feature a different kind of hunt; Wisconsin for Cook’s first black buck hunt, Kansas for a pheasant hunt and Missouri for a difficult turkey hunt. Along the way Cook will be joined by family, friends and celebrity guests, including former “Idol” contestant Blake Lewis, Grammy-nominated artist Jake Owen and country music star Aaron Tippin._
