This American Idol runner-up isn’t being hasty with her decision to marry a new guy just four months after splitting from Tony Kusian in May — she’s known the guy forever!

When Crystal Bowersox announced that she was engaged to new boyfriend Brian Walker just four months after publicly splitting with Tony Kusian during last season’s American Idol finale, we did a double take. However, the 25-year-old singer doesn’t move as quickly as we thought — she revealed that he’s been in her life forever!

“He’s a great man,” Crystal gushed to HollywoodLife.com exclusively of Brian before the Pinktober kick-off party with HER idol, Melissa Etheridge, at Hollywood’s Hard Rock Cafe. “We go way back — he’s been my best friend for a very long time,” she added.

However, the dreadlocked songbird who lost the Idol title to Lee DeWyze last season, sniffs at the suggestion that she’s moving too fast. “It’s so funny, because we’re not really engaged,” she declared, waving her ringless fingers. “We’re just getting married.”

One thing is for certain, at least: Brian is going to be a great dad to her 1 1/2 year old son, Tony. “He’s a great father,” she told us fiercely. “He’s a great father.”
