iTunes Review

Her assertive yet tender vocals and folk-influenced songwriting make Crystal Bowersox's major-label debut Farmer’s Daughter stand out from the pack as well. More than most American Idol alumni, Bowersox radiates authenticity — there’s real angst and desire in her tales of growing up in rural Ohio. From the angry title track to the reflective “Holy Toledo” and the urgent “On the Run,” she conveys the spirit of a yearning soul with believable passion. Bowersox is able to celebrate the joys of classic pop-culture in “Ridin’ With the Radio” as well as deliver heartfelt romantic balladry in “Mason,” a duet with husband Brian Walker. There’s a late-‘60s hippie vibe to many of these tracks, with “Speak Now” conjuring up flashes of the Band and a cover of the Buffalo Springfield’s “For What It’s Worth” rekindling the fires of the protest era. With “Arlene,” Crystal offers a character study of a tough, resolute woman that could serve as her own personal anthem. Bowersox definitely scores impressively with this release.

Does Not Disappoint!

I loved Crystal on American Idol and was so disappointed when she didn't win, but her debut album does not disappoint. Her voice shines through on every song and the songs represent a strong range of sounds. Its a little bit of country, blues, rock, and Janis Joplin--very solid album and I definitely recommend buying.

Great debut album!

Lots of folk, rock and country in her voice and songs. And what a lyricist? Her songs tell meaningful stories I can relate to.


I never voted for anyone on American Idol until I heard Crystal sing!! She is awesome and this album was everything I expected!! I can't wait for the next one! I wish I could have seen her with Melissa Etheridge - might I suggest that Crystal tour with Melissa?!? You go girl! ;-)

Genre: Pop

Years Active: '10s

Taking cues from her favorite songwriters -- including Melissa Etheridge, Janis Joplin, and Sista Otis -- Crystal Bowersox brought a relaxed, folksy vibe to the ninth season of American Idol. Although she auditioned for the show in Chicago, Bowersox grew up five hours east in Elliston, Ohio, a small town with fewer than 100 residents. She began writing songs as a ten-year-old and, by her early teens, had formed a band with her brothers. Dubbed “Oldinuph” -- a name that poked fun at their own adolescence...
