Why Wait is an album by American country music artist Kristy Lee Cook. It was released on September 16, 2008 by Arista Nashville. The album's only single, "15 Minutes of Shame" has peaked at number 28 on the Hot Country Songs charts. The album debuted at number eight on the US Top Country albums chart, and at number 49 on the Billboard 200 with a first week sales of just under 10,000,[3] and has sold 32,000 copies since its release.[4] Cook was dropped by Arista Nashville in December the same year.[5]
