Country music newcomer and former American Idol sweetheart Crystal Bowersox reveals the answers to your Twitter questions exclusively on CMT Posted. Take a look.

@RonnieReebsFan: If you could pick one male and one female singer, who would you pick to do a duet with?

Bowersox: One male ... I'm thinking Willie Nelson. And female, I'd love to work with Jennifer Nettles of Sugarland.

@Sniffles_VI40: What country would you most like to tour? I know you want more children, have any girl's names in mind?

America, first and foremost, but I'd like to tour all over Europe, not just one country. :) As for children, haven't even started trying yet, so we haven't thought of any names.

@KittyActually: Of all the songs you've written, which one are you most proud of and why?

I wrote a song called "Heart Shaped Lullaby" back in 2009 when my son was just 4 days old. It's still to this day one of my favorites. And "Farmer's Daughter" was easy to write -- it just came out of me in a few minutes -- but has been one of the hardest to sing emotionally, despite being the first single. Talk about standing naked in front of a crowd! Over time as I've performed "F.D.," it makes the hurt hurt a little less. :)

@Cariss20_12: Seeing as you're a huge Casey Abrams fan, would you ever consider singing with him if possible?

I think that anyone who has the guts to go through with something as huge and intimidating as American Idol or any other public judging forum definitely has my respect. Casey Abrams seems like a nice fellow, and musically talented, but it's all about there being the right musical chemistry. Who knows!

@MatchlightMusic: If you had to choose one central musical influence, who would it be and why?

This is always one of the toughest questions. I usually answer with "I can't just pick one." But if I HAD to ... thankfully, I don't! There are just too many for me to choose one. Aretha Franklin, Patsy Cline, Melissa Etheridge, Trisha Yearwood, Willie Nelson, Jewel, Joni Mitchell, and on and on ... blues, country, rock 'n' roll, etc ...

@MamasoxfanVI26: Where in the world would you most like to perform?

Somewhere on a front porch swing, for my friends and family that have gone ... but since that can't happen for a while, I think I'd most like to perform anywhere people would like to listen!

@MamasoxfanVI26: Would you rather have the power to be invisible or the power to read minds? Or what super power would you most like?

I'm definitely thankful that we can't read each other's minds! That could be a mess. Invisibility would be nice for certain things, but I'm pretty sure I already have a super power ... I can kiss my son's "Owies" and they're magically "all better"!

@MECSMILEY_VI3: Who would you most like to hear cover one of your songs?

I've got a few I've written with people in mind. I think I wrote one when I was 13 or so for Reba. But the answer to your question really depends on the song. I get tickled pink when I see covers of my songs from folks on YouTube. :)

@tpazzzz_VI32: The East coast fans are getting anxious, will you be touring this coast soon? Feeling left out!

Hang in there, Tpazzzzzz! I'm sure the boys and I will be heading your way soon. Thanks for being anxiously patient. :)

@Jonascsantos: Are you going to record a full country album in the near future?

I will be recording another album, not sure on exact times yet, but I'm already busy plotting it out in my head. As for it being a country album, it will be what it will be naturally. :) I just want to make heartfelt, honest music that people can relate to, and if it's called country, I'm all for it!
