She’s played the Ellen DeGeneres show&nbsp;and the Tonight&nbsp;Show and is slated to portray Patsy Cline in a&nbsp;Broadway show about the legendary country singer.<br />&nbsp;<br />Her truly soulful latest&nbsp;album, All That for This, was produced by Steve Berlin of Los Lobos, who has&nbsp;produced a ton of&nbsp;great artists, from Angelique Kidjo to Faith No More to&nbsp;Jackie Greene, and features a raft of top-notch musicians. And&nbsp;an appearance by&nbsp;Jakob Dylan.<br />&nbsp;<br />Crystal has a five-song EP&nbsp;set for release in June and will be touring throughout the summer.</p><p> Thu, 01 May 2014 19:25:08 +0000 Daniel Shaw 17875 at http://aspenpublicradio.org Crystal Bowersox
