Sheryl Crow was born to a musical family in Missouri and learned how to play piano starting in grade school. After writing her first song at age 13, majoring in music at the University of Missouri and acting as a music teacher for autistic children, Crow began recording local advertising jingles and eventually moved to Los Angeles to try her luck in the music business. She got her first big break when she successfully auditioned to be a backup singer on Michael Jackson's international Bad tour and after spending two years on the road with Jackson, Crow resumed her search for a record deal.
Her debut album Tuesday Night Music Club became a huge hit and with its breezy, carefree outlook, "All I Wanna Do" became one of the biggest summer singles of 1994, falling just one position short of number one. It also spawned a Top Five follow-up hit in "Strong Enough" (plus another minor single in "Can't Cry Anymore"). Crow was a big winner at the Grammys in early 1995, taking home honors for Best New Artist, Best Female Rock Vocal, and Record of the Year (the latter two for "All I Wanna Do").
Off of her next album Sheryl Crow, the singles "If It Makes You Happy," "Everyday Is a Winding Road," and "A Change Would Do You Good" were all radio smashes, and "Home" also became a hit. Crow brought home Grammys for Best Rock Album and another Best Female Rock Vocal (for "If It Makes You Happy").
Crow toured with the Lilith Fair package during the summer of 1997 (the first of several times), and subsequently wrote and performed the title theme to the James Bond film Tomorrow Never Dies. In the fall of 1998, she returned with her third album, The Globe Sessions. A more straightforward, traditionalist rock record than Sheryl Crow, The Globe Sessions became her third straight platinum-selling, Top Ten LP, and it won her another Grammy for Best Rock Album. It also spawned two Top 20 hits: "My Favorite Mistake" and "Anything but Down." In 1999, she contributed a Grammy-winning cover of Guns N' Roses' "Sweet Child o' Mine" to the soundtrack of the Adam Sandler comedy Big Daddy.
The new millennium brought 2002's C'mon C'mon, whose gold "Soak Up the Sun" peaked in the Top 20 and "Steve McQueen" again nabbed her a Best Female Rock Vocal Performance Grammy. The 2003 Greatest hits compilation, The Very Best of Sheryl Crow, was also a #2 charter, featuring a new recording, a cover of Cat Stevens’ "The First Cut is the Deepest". 2005's platinum Wildflower featured the duet with Sting, "Always on Your Side".
Bolder and more free-spirited than ever, multi Grammy Award winning singer/songwriter Sheryl Crow continues a journey of self-discovery that has increasingly appealed to both the head and the heart on her new album Detours.
