Crystal Bowersox was a singing powerhouse on Season 9 of American Idol who got thisclose to taking home the title, but it didn’t stop her from becoming a hit on her own. So when the hardworking mom stopped by the Sundance Film Festival last week to perform at the Koffeehouse Chateau Music Showcase, we were thrilled to catch up with her to find out when we can expect more music and maybe, just maybe, another baby!
On what she’s up to lately:
Crystal Bowersox: I’m just zipping around performing everywhere and anywhere. I’m having a great time. This is my first Sundance and it’s been really special for me.
On balancing her crazy busy career and being a mom to her young son, Tony:
It’s not easy. My son, as I’m walking out the door, he’s like, ‘Mama, no,’ and it’s hard to deal with. But when I come home, I bring toys so he forgives me. No, I’m kidding. But he’s okay with it.
On thinking about having another baby:
You know I did for a minute. But right now I think one’s enough. And if I do have more children, I’ll adopt. I just think there’s plenty of children out there who don’t have a loving warm home. So why would I put another person out into the world when I could give a child a home that really needs one.
On whether or not her son inspires the music on her new album, All This For That, due out on March 26:
Oh absolutely. There’s a couple of tracks dedicated to my boy on the new album, for sure.
