Evan’s gal is currently on tour. Joey Cook finished seventh in season 14 but has been on tour for the past few months. According to Billboard, Cook’s run began on opening night in Clearwater, Fla., where the audience at Ruth Eckerd Hall audibly expressed surprise when she walked out on stage, accompanied by only her ukulele.
She’s also been working on an Indiegogo campaign called ‘Project Big Girl Album’ in order to record, promote and tour with her original music. Before American Idol, she created an album with her iPhone which was comprised of 12 original songs she recorded in one take.

Evan Higgins –who is a writer and a videographer –popped the question back in March. Evan Higgins even put a lot of effort on the ring he gave his gal. He gave Cook a ring made of his father and mother’s engagement band and a diamond from a set of earrings his stepfather gave his mother.
According to People, the couple began dating in December 2009 and got engaged last March. The couple hasn’t set a date for the wedding but Cook did say, it would happen “as soon as my life makes sense again and we can actually plan things.”
