Here's to hoping Crystal Bowersox has the same success as last year's American Idol runner-up, Adam Lambert.
Earlier this week, the unique, talented singer signed her first professional deal with 19 Recordings/Jive Records. Look for her to release a blues/folk/rock album later this year.
"I'm really grateful to be given this opportunity to make an album and let people hear my music, and I'm looking forward to working with all of the folks at 19/Jive," said Bowersox, who lost to Lee DeWyze on the season nine finale.
Fans can see Crystal, Lee and company in concert this summer, as the American Idol tour kicks off its 49-date run July 1 in Detroit.
