Tippin Takes Host On Turkey Hunt And Private Flight

Nashville, Tenn. (May 24, 2010)—Country superstar and avid hunter Aaron Tippin welcomed Kristy Lee Cook (American Idol alum) to the neighborhood in Tippin-style. Attending to a CALL OF THE WILD, Tippin showed Kristy Lee the ropes in the woods and in flight. 

Shooting an episode for Cook’s new “Goin’ Country” television show, Kristy tagged along with Aaron in a hunt to tag a turkey on his 400+-acre farm and took flight aboard his 1941 Stearman biplane. The pair headed to the woods decked-out in camouflage and although they returned empty-handed, Aaron taught Cook how to perfect her turkey call.

“The conditions weren’t optimum for a successful turkey hunt—we talked too much!” Tippin explained. “I also wanted to introduce her and the audience to another one of my loves—flying. She was a bit nervous, but she’s a trooper.  She’s a sweet girl; Thea and I really enjoyed having her.”

Flying is second nature to Tippin who became a commercial pilot at the age of 17. He nurtures his love of aviation with his personal private collection of aircrafts, all in ready-to-fly condition.

The new program, which premiered on Saturday, May 22, 2010, will showcase American Idol finalist Kristy Lee Cook and her extraordinary journey through her career in music and her down-to-earth, country girl lifestyle (her love of the outdoors, horses, and the thrill of the hunt). During the weekly program, Cook will visit with celebrity friends who share similar interests. A finalist on American Idol (Season 7), Kristy Lee Cook released WHY WAIT via 19 Recordings and Arista Nashville in 2008; the album featured the single "15 Minutes of Shame," a Top 30 hit on the Billboard country charts. The fall episode of “Goin’ Countrywith Kristy Lee Cook” with guest star Aaron Tippin is set to air in September 2010 on the Versus Network.

ARRESTED now in Colorado...but what a story and week for 2 brothers and their stripper sister!

Text messages and tweets by three fugitive siblings who shot at a police officer and robbed a bank reveal a dangerous mindset and a firm bond between the siblings, "We've certainly seen their mindset when... They shot at a law enforcement officer outside of Tampa Bay, Fla., and when they fired inside that bank in Valdosta, Ga. But these additional texts and tweets have given us additional insight," FBI Special Agent Stephen Emmett told "Good Morning America" today. " We are concerned and feel that they are going to continue and cause problems to say the least for law enforcement." Ryan Dougherty, 21; his sister Lee Grace E.
