Sheryl Crow            

Singer-Songwriter; Known for Hits "The First Cut Is The Deepest" and "Soak Up The Sun"

Sheryl Crow has won several Grammys for her solo work, including her self-titled album Sheryl Crow.

Her career began after college when she worked as a music teacher in a St. Louis elementary school. After moving to Los Angeles, she began recording jingles for advertising clients, including McDonald's, and worked as a back-up singer. In 1987-'88 she sang on Michael Jackson’s "Bad" world tour. She later sang back-up for Sting, Rod Stewart and Don Henley. She began playing with the band The Tuesday Music Club, and in 1993, the group released the multi-platinum album Tuesday Night Music Club, which included the smash hit, "All I Wanna Do."

In 1995, she won three Grammy Awards for Best New Artist, Record of the Year (for "All I Want to Do") and Best Female Pop Vocal Performance for Tuesday Music Club. She also performed a MTV Unplugged session in 1995. Crow released the album Sheryl Crow in 1996, winning two Grammy Awards for Best Rock Album and Best Female Rock Vocal Performance. She spent much of 1997-'98 on tour, playing select dates on the Rolling Stones' Bridges to Babylon tour and performing at the 1998 Lilith Fair concerts. She released her third album, The Globe Sessions in the fall of 1998, which won a Grammy for Best Rock Album. At the Grammy Awards in February 2000, Crow won for Best Female Rock Vocal Performance, for her rendition of the Guns 'n Roses hit "Sweet Child o'Mine." Crow's 2006 album, Wildflower, was nominated for three Grammy Awards.

Crow was diagnosed with breast cancer later in her career. The diagnosis shocked the singer. "It doesn't run in my family," she explained to Shape magazine. "And I've always worked out and been fit, so I figured I'd never get sick. But when I was diagnosed, I realized disease isn't about how fit you are. In my mind, it's so much more about how you live your life and how much stress you're under."

Fortunately, Crow’s cancer was caught in the early stages. She had a lumpectomy and underwent seven weeks of radiation. After completing her treatment, Crow bought a horse farm near Nashville -- fulfilling a childhood dream. Crow later went on her Stop Global Warming College Tour in April 2007. She continued to show her dedication to environmental causes, performing at the Live Earth concerts that July.

In 2008, Crow released her sixth studio album, Detours. Politically active, Crow gave away free digital copies of her Detours album to support the Rock the Vote's youth registration drive. In 2010, Crow released her seventh studio album, 100 Miles From Memphis.
