Country's own Kree Harrison was revealed as the runner-up on the twelfth season of 'American Idol' in the dramatic finale Thursday night (May 16), and in an interview after the show, she shared some of her future plans.

"We have the tour, which is so exciting," Harrison tells MTV News. "I get to travel the country and thank each and every one of them for voting for me and getting me this far. As many hugs as I can possibly give, I will."

The Texas native performed a new song, 'All Cried Out,' on 'Idol' Wednesday night, and she says it's pretty indicative of the album she hopes to record. "I would want that to be my single, either way," she states, adding that she might be debuting even more new material during the 'Idol' tour this summer. "I hope to. Stay tuned!"

Harrison hints that her future music plans could include departing 'Idol' judge Randy Jackson. "We'll see each other. I know we will," she says. "I love him and apparently we have a mutual friend, which I didn't even know until the other day. And, so I would love to work with him in the future. I adore him."

The American Idols Live! tour kicks off on June 29 in St. Louis.
