Remixing the Holidays: American Idol's Crystal Bowersox On Her Favorite Christmas Songs

Monday, December 20, 2010

All this week we're talking with musical artists and experts about their favorite seasonal songs for our annual "Remixing the Holidays" series. First up: Crystal Bowersox. The American Idol runner-up had a whirlwind of a year, from earning national acclaim for her appearance and success on the Fox reality show to her recent release of her new album, "Farmer's Daughter." The 25-year-old singer says she'll be spending her first Christmas with her new family, which includes her husband and son. She talks with us about the music that reminds her of Christmas. 

Bowersox's list includes classics like "Blue Christmas" and "Have Yourself A Merry Little Christmas," and more unconventional choices, including "Grandma Got Run Over by a Reindeer."

Crystal's choices seems to be exactly what I thought it'd be. She likes the fun, humorous christmas songs and she pays homage to the classics, shes a true traditionalist in every sense. It'd be interesting to hear her co-host a show and let us hear her playlist and talk about them. Nice job Crystal :)
