Crystal Bowersox To Marry Brian Walker

Congratulations go out to American Idol’s Crystal Bowersox on the news of her engagement to fellow musician Brian Walker. People reports the news which was relayed to them by Bowersox’s own publicity, making rather well confirmed:

Crystal Bowersox, the American Idol runner-up, is engaged to musician Brian Walker and they plan to tie the knot next month, her rep tells PEOPLE exclusively.

It’s the first marriage for Bowersox, 25, who has a son, Tony, 1 ½, from a previous relationship. Bowersox is currently recording her debut album.

As her career takes off, her love life has also been on fast-forward.

Brian Walker has been credited with naming the Idol runner-up with the moniker “Mama Sox.” Look for the happy couple to tie the knot in October before some sort of inevitable coupled tour. What do you think of Crystal’s exciting news?




  1. Is this a quick marriage? Had no idea she was even dating anyone…is this the same guy that used to sit in the audience when she was trying out for American Idol? I think she should get her career off the ground first….and then concentrate on her personal life…

  2. Crystal to me was a WINNER and now I hope her life and career will be filled with Happiness. The girl can sing.

  3. …..the future groom (willing to accept Crystal & son in love & matrimony) is a plus.

    Getting on with her life with "a dad" in the home is positive. I'm sure she considered all the pluses. A change from her past negatives should turn her life & career in the "right" direction….Let's all wish her the best. God has given her a super "natural" voice. Maybe HE wants to continue fulfilling her life with ALL HIS BLESSINGS.

  4. I am very happy to hear the news about the upcoming wedding. Crystal will always be a winner in my book and I look forward to getting her new album. Best wishes to both Crystal and Brian.

  5. Congratulations to Crystal. She was my very favorite on American Idol…she is definitely a winner. I hope she has much happiness and success. I absolutely love to hear her sing…she is so talented and is a natural!!!!!

  6. i think it is at first sight.they sound wonderful togethr singing.congrulations to you both .love your voice cristle

  7. I think it's great news! Especially since she and her boyfriend broke up the afternoon before her last performance on Idol. She's been my favorite since I first saw her.

    According to other articles I've read she and Brian have known each other for quite awhile, and there's a video of the two of them singing to her son that was posted over a year ago.

  8. Crystals personal life is hers " well it should be" But I am sure she is more than able to cope with such transparency and public interest that goes with her well earned newly aquired fame. I am amused at the fact that it was the man who named her mama sox, a worthy name . We should now call her wifee mamasox. I am one who wishes her well in all she does and will always be grateful as I am sure most will of her enthralling and charming performances she gave us all. I am confident I will enjoy her album and I await her Autumn release. Bless her.

  9. Sounds like 'desparation' to me on the part of Crystal … anything – to grab onto … to 'win' at … BORING!!!! She's boring…

  10. Very happy for Crystal. She was my pick to win American Idol. So glad that her career and her personal life is looking up for her. Congratulation's!!!!!!!!!

  11. I have congratulated Crystal on her engagement and future marriage, but I am sorry I didn't like her singing.

  12. I am very happy for her. She is a sweet girl with loads of talent! I wish her and her family nothing but the best!
