MAHNOMEN -- He may not have known quite how to pronounce the name, but "American Idol" champ-turned-rock star David Cook gave his Mahnomen audience a concert to remember Wednesday night at the Shooting Star Casino.


After starting out the show with a cover of the Collective Soul hit, "The World I Know" -- which he first performed on "American Idol," to the acclaim of both audience and judges -- Cook briefly quizzed concert-goers about the correct pronunciation of "Mahnomen."
