In preparation for her album dropping Tuesday, Dec. 14, “American Idol” runner-up Crystal Bowersox dropped by “The Tonight Show with Jay Leno” Friday night (Dec. 10) to perform the title track off her album, “Farmer’s Daughter.”

Even though the audio is slightly out of sync (sorry about that), it’s still a great sneak peek of her first single. What do you think, Mamasox fans? We think it’s a nice single, particularly when she lets it rip on the chorus.

We hope her album has more success than her other finalist Lee DeWyze‘s album did. His album sold a very low 39,000 units in its first week of sales, which is lower than any previous “Idol” winner or runner-up. Here’s hoping Crystal doesn’t have the same Season 9 curse.
