"American Idol" Season 9 runner-up Crystal Bowersox's friendship with Blues Traveler began in earnest at last year's South By Southwest festival, when John Popper made a surprise appearance onstage during her official SXSW showcase. John was supposed to only play harmonica on one or two tunes, but things went so well, he ended up sitting in on almost her entire set. And now Crystal is returning the favor, guesting on a track on Blues Traveler's forthcoming 11th studio album, Suzie Cracks The Whip, called "I Don't Wanna Go."
Suzie Cracks The Whip comes out June 26 on 429 Records and also features collaborations with Ron Sexsmith and the Spin Doctors' Chris Barron. But if you really need some more Bowersox in your life, you're in luck: A new Crystal EP consisting entirely of pre-"Idol" material, Once Upon A Time, came out quietly this week, and is available now exclusively on Amazon.
