by Rita Houston

From open mics to American Idol to moving on after that wild ride, the musical path of Crystal Bowersox now brings us her second album. All That For This is just out, and Crystal returned to FUV with her band to perform some new songs, and — as she looks ahead to a summer on Broadway — one that was made famous by Patsy Cline.

Born in Elliston, Ohio, with a passion for music, Crystal Bowersox spent her days performing in local taverns and train stations. At 17 she traveled to Chicago, where she performed in a variety of places hoping that she'd one day be discovered. In 2009, she auditioned for the ninth season of American Idol and got her big break. She impressed the judges, made it through to Hollywood, and ended as runner-up to winner Lee DeWyze.
