Crystal Bowersox got married today to fiance Brian Walker, and announced the news via her Twitter account. After declaring herself moments ago to now be “Officially mamasox!!!” she quickly pointed out that she instead meant “walkersox” – a combination of her long-running nickname and her new husband’s last name. Bowersox has previously stated that it was Walker who came up with the name “mamasox” in the first place, in reference to the fact that she’s the mother of a small child.
Crystal Bowersox was the runner-up on this past season of American Idol, losing out to fellow contestant Lee DeWyze after having been the frontrunner all year long. Her major label debut album is forthcoming, without an exact announced release date as of yet. Congrats to Crystal and Brian on their wedding.
Crystal Bowersox is getting married next month to fellow musician Brian Walker, according to reports. Bowersox used her Twitter page to thank her fans for all the congratulations that they’ve been offering her since the news broke, and commented that she finds it “hilarious that people think brian and I just met. He’s been a best friend for years.” She further explained that she and Walker have “both always had pretty bad timing, but it finally worked out.”
For his part, Walker who just joined Twitter two days ago at @BrianWalkerLive, quipped “Brian Walker-Man of mystery, mwahahaha……who am I????”
Crystal Bowersox was a frontrunner and fan favorite on American Idol last season but surprisingly finished second to fellow contestant Lee DeWyze. In addition to getting engaged to Walker, Bowersox is also in the midst of recording her debut album, which she’s also been documenting via Twitter.
