Album: Farmer's Daughter (2010)

Songfacts®:

  • 2010 American Idol runner up Crystal Bowersox co-wrote this soulful country duet with her husband Brian Walker, and they performed the tune together at their October 10, 2010 nuptials, at Uncommon Ground Café in Chicago.
  • Walker actually began the song in 2008, before Bowersox penned its bridge. Crystal told Lyndsey Parker of Yahoo Music. "Back before Idol, we were both open-mic musicians. We'd frequent the same place, and one week I'd go in with a new song that I'd written about him, and no one else in the room knew - but he knew! And then he'd get onstage and sing a song that he wrote for me. It was just love letter back and forth, for years. 'Mason' was one of those songs.'"
