The singer-songwriter from Elliston, Ohio, has come a long way in just a few years. Bowersox competed in the ninth season of the Fox television show “American Idol,” finishing second in the race and launching her career as a performer.
After finishing “Idol,” Bowersox signed a record deal with 19 Entertainment/Jive Records and released her first studio album, Farmer’s Daughter, in 2010. After RCA Music Group disbanded Jive Records, Bowersox signed a deal with Shanachie Records, which released her second disc, All That for This, in 2013.
The musician expanded her talents to include acting in 2011 when she guest starred on the ABC drama “Body of Proof.” She is set to play Patsy Cline in the Broadway production “Always, Patsy Cline” later this year.
