Crystal Bowersox has recorded a first CD she calls "Farmer's Daughter," Jive Records announced Wednesday.

The 2010 "American Idol" runner-up's album is set for release Dec. 14.

"After finishing up the 2010 American Idol Live Tour, Bowersox headed to New Jersey to begin production on her eagerly awaited debut," the record label said in a news release.

"The 12 tracks, 10 of them written or co-written by Bowersox, showcase her strong songwriting skills and her desire to infuse her lyrics with that raw emotion of someone who has lived. The album also contains eight songs written solely by Crystal, two co-writes, an additional track by Kara DioGuardi and Nickelback's Chad Kroeger titled 'Hold On' and a cover of Buffalo Springfield's 1967 classic 'For What It's Worth.' One very special song is 'Mason,' a song Bowersox co-wrote with her husband Brian Walker, which they performed together at their recent nuptials."
