  • The Top 12's musical inspirations

     
    You can tell a lot about a person by their music collection, which is why we asked each member of Season 9's Top 12 for the song or album that changed his or her life. The artist who inspired Crystal Bowersox to become a singer? Ray LaMontagne. Lacey...
