Sunday, July 28 – Americana Pop & Country – Crystal Bowersox, a northwest Ohio native currently calling Nashville home, is rising star who has built her life around music. Crystal draws on her various influences – across folk-pop, classic rock, soul, blues and country – to make the kind of music that resonates. It is both tender and tough, rough yet polished, and it encompasses many genres without falling neatly into one category. As one of her songwriting partners describes it, Crystal has “a voice like dirt and diamonds.” Her music is intended to bring a positive message of love and light to the world – things that folks will be able to take with them on their own journey, so that they, too, can feel truly alive. Since her introduction to the world through television, Crystal has toured widely and released two LP’s, two EPs, and several singles. Additionally, she has used her talents to benefit several causes close to her heart, and has become an advocate and inspiration for people living with Type 1 Diabetes.
