American Idol’s season 9 runner-up, Crystal Bowersox, signed with 19 Recordings/Jive Records. She’s in good standing, the label already includes such former contestants as Daughtry, Carrie Underwood, David Cook, Jordin Sparks, Kris Allen and Adam Lambert.
Crystal’s major-label debut album is expected to hit shelves later this year. No word on the vibe of the record, but on her Facebook and American Idol sites, Crystal lists Jewel, Tracy Chapman, and Melisa Etheridge as influences.
