Musician Brian Walker: More Than Just Crystal Bowersox Fiance (Video)


brian walkerThe news broke yesterday the American Idol runner-up Crystal Bowersox is engaged to a relatively unknown musician named Brian Walker. 

The couple have only been seeing each other for a few months, but have a history of performing together that dates back to well before her days on American Idol.   (He even wrote the song that inspired her son’s middle name!)

Who is the musician that captured Crystal Bowersox’ heart?


Musician.  Brian Walker has been playing the guitar since December 2004.  He released his debut album in 2006.    He performs his original songs at the many Chicago open-mic nights.

World Traveller.  Born and raised in Philadelphia, Brian traveled the world for more than half a decade from 1994-2000.

Peformer.  During his travels, Brian met Lance Barber, an actor who encouraged Brian to move to Chicago and to begin a career in acting and performing.

Crystal Bowersox Beau.  The relationship with Bowersox appears to go back some time.  The two performed the song Mason (video) below long before her debut on American Idol.  Bowersox says of the song, “Mason, written by Brian Walker, is the song that inspired my sons second middle name… beautiful song.”
