The wait is finally over for fans of the American Idol runner-up, Crystal Bowersox. Her debut album, Farmer’s Daughter, is slated to be released on December 14th–just in time for the holidays.
So what took Bowersox so long to get into the studio? Apparently, it was her obligations with the show that launched her music career–American Idol; specifically, the American Idol Live Tour.
And now that the album is done, it seems as though Bowersox fans have a lot to look forward to. Of the twelve tracks on the CD, Bowersox herself wrote or co-wrote ten of them, in an effort to “showcase her strong songwriting skills and her desire to infuse her lyrics with that raw emotion of someone who has lived.”
In addition to a powerful cover of Buffalo Springfield’s 1967 classic, “For What It’s Worth,” Bowersox fans will also get to hear a special track that Crystal and her husband, Brian Walker, co-wrote entitled “Mason,” which they wrote for their son and performed together at their recent wedding.
Another Idol star also had some input on the debut album–former judge Kara DioGuardi, who wrote one of the tracks.
