Sheryl Crow Life Story
Proving she was more than just a one-hit wonder, Sheryl Crow found continued success long after her break-out hit "All I Wanna Do" faded away. Before becoming a solo artist, Crow found early success after graduating the University of Missouri by writing commercial jingles. She told one reporter that a jingle she wrote for McDonald's earned her a $50,000.
In 1987, Crow's singing talents were recognized by Michael Jackson, who invited Crow on his Bad Tour, where Crow sang back-up vocals. In the early 90's Crow set her sights on making her own album. Her first album was never released, however, as record executives didn't think it would sell. This album was later leaked on cassette.
Crow went back to the drawing board with her band, who was collectively called the Tuesday Music Collective, after the day when the band would get together to play. Her second album, Tuesday Night Music Club was released in 1993 and soon caught the attention of Rolling Stone Magazine, which featured her in "New Faces" section. The album didn't sell well at first, but after word of mouth spread and radio stations began incessantly playing the singles "All I Wanna Do", "Strong Enough" and "Leaving Las Vegas", the album was soon a hit. Crow won several Grammy awards that year including "Best Female Pop Vocal Performance", "Best New Artist" and "Record of the Year."
Three years later, Crow released her self-titled follow up album. Though it didn't get the critical attention that her previous album received, it did include the hits "If It Makes You Happy" and "Every day is a Winding Road." The album received a Grammy nomination for Best Rock Album.
During this time Crow was suffering from a depression and bitter breakup with Eric Clapton. Her next album, 1998's The Globe Sessions, included a song "My Favorite Mistake," which is rumored to be about Clapton. The album won a Grammy award for best Rock Album of the Year.
By 2002, Crow was becoming more and more involved in charity organizations and became an outspoken critic of President Bush's foreign policy. During a performance on The Today Show in 2003, Crow wore a shirt which read, "I don't believe in your war, Mr. Bush." A year later, Crow began a slightly scandalous relationship with cyclist Lance Armstrong. But the couple separated in 2006. Shortly thereafter, Crow was diagnosed with breast cancer. She took a break from performing to get medical attention, and her doctor is optimist that Crow will make a full recovery.
Crow has recently became an advocate for environmental health, and took part in 2007 Live Earth concert.
