Last month Crystal Bowersox took the stage at our Pray For Pop showcase during South By Southwest and served up electrifying acoustic versions of such Farmer’s Daugher jams as “Finally Got It Right,” “Mine All Mine” and “Kiss Ya.” But turns out there’s one more Mama Sox surprise we held over for you—a video interview with the American Idol Season 9 alum, which we conducted outside the venue where our event took place. Watch below!
Crystal spoke with us about recording the “labor of love” that is her LP. “I knew what kind of album I wanted to make before I tried out for the show,” she pointed out.
She also revealed who her own music idols are (think a certain expletive-loving, Grammy-winning artist who’s on tap to judge another singing competition shortly), and which contestant she’s rooting for this season on the series that made her a household name.
