Crystal Bowersox Makes Spontaneous Debut at the Grand Ole Opry
Season 9 American Idol runner-up Crystal Bowersox made a surprise debut performance at the Grand Ole Opry last Friday. Bowersox who was visiting backstage at an Oak Ridge Boys performance, was invited onstage by segment host Vince Gill.
“We do things out here for an awful lot of different reasons, but one is spontaneity, one is fun. I went to the management and said, ‘Why don’t we do the Southern gentlemanly thing and invite her to sing a song on the stage of the Grand Ole Opry?’” Vince Gill
Bowersox sang an original song, written for her husband, “Mine All Mine” while accompanying herself on Gill’s acoustic guitar.
Bowersox was understandably beside herself with joy and surprise, stating, “I can’t believe where I am!”
