Farmer's Daughter (Explicit)
Released: Dec 2010
Though she was runner-up on American Idol, Crystal Bowersox clearly won a place in the hearts of America. Blessed with an expressive voice, Bowersox can swing from country-pop fluff ("Ridin With the Radio") to more deeply moving fare ("Farmer's Daughter") to soulful rock ("Speak Now"). Her vocals soar on funky, soulful numbers such as "Mason," which features her husband, Brian Walker; earthy songs like these are heartfelt slices of coffee-shop blue-eyed soul. A promising sign for Bowersox's future: She's written/co-written 10 of the 12 songs here.
