Seemingly apt for an American Idol contestant whose look and sound stood apart from most others, Crystal Bowersox has split from RCA/Jive and will release her next album elsewhere.
“I’m not worried about where I’m gonna be,” Bowersox told TV Line about her professional standing. “I’m gonna be making music if it’s on my own label or if it’s with somebody else. I’d love to work with ATO, Dave Matthews’ label. We’ll see what happens.”
The season nine runner-up has sold 210,000 copies of “Farmer’s Daughter,” a number that exceeds champion Lee DeWyze’s 146,000 for his debut CD.
Crystal isn’t a mainstream sensation, but she’s perfectly happy with where her career is at.
“For not having any radio play and any great promotion, I think I’ve done pretty well on sales,” she said. “I’m able to provide a good, comfortable life for my family, and that’s what I wanted out of it… I continue to do this for a living. There’s nothing better.”
Bowersox will actually expand her resume next week: look for her to guest star on ABC’s Body of Proof.
