Our favorite country girl was found breaking in her new pop stardom at The Tonight Show with Jay Leno on Friday, performing the eponymous track from her debut album, Farmer’s Daughter. The song is darker material than we’re used to hearing from her on Idol, detailing the travails of growing up with an alcoholic, abusive father. Bowersox always brings soul and authenticity to her performances, and she doesn’t disappoint here. Emotions run high and by the showstopping second verse you may need a tissue. Don’t say we didn’t warn you!
