With a new label deal with Shanachie Entertainment; a new album, All That For This, featuring a duet with the Wallflowers' Jakob Dylan; and a titular starring role in Broadway's Always...Patsy Cline, Crystal's career is sure to soon be hotter than ever.
Right before Crystal began her U.S. tour this month, she swung by Yahoo! Music HQ to treat our staff to a few gorgeous acoustic tunes, including her new single "Dead Weight" and a ballad she wrote with her husband Brian Walker, "Everything Falls Into Place." Enjoy:
Mamasox also sat down with Reality Rocks for an in-depth interview about her idyllic family life in "Portlandia," her new music, her new label, and the new year ahead. It was great catching up with her, and I hope you enjoy watching the interview as much as I did conducting it:
