Crystal Bowersox is getting married.

The ninth-season American Idol runner-up has gotten engaged to musician Brian Walker, People reported Friday.

Bowersox and Walker plan to wed next month, according to her representative.

The wedding will be the first for Bowersox, who has a 1-year-old son from a previous relationship and split with former boyfriend Tony Kusian the morning before she took the stage with Lee Dewyze for American Idol's final ninth-season performance show on May 25.

While Bowersox initially described her split with Kusian as a "mutual" decision based on his desire to maintain their prior "small town" lifestyle, she later admitted it had surprised her.

"[It] did shock me," she said.  "I woke up Tuesday morning and he just had an epiphany. He wanted a simple, quiet life and I respect that. I'm glad he told me instead of sticking it out and realizing it later that he would be unhappy."

The 24-year-old from Toledo, OH signed with 19 Recordings/Jive Records after Idol's finale.  Her debut album will be released this fall.
