Singer-songwriter Sheryl Crow grew up in a small town in Missouri where she began playing piano at age 6. After college she worked as an elementary school music teacher in St. Louis and played in a band on the weekends. Later she moved to Los Angeles, recorded commercial jingles, and sang back-up for Michael Jackson, Rod Stewart, and Don Henley before becoming a star in own right. In 1995, she won three Grammy Awards for Best New Artist, Record of the Year for the single "All I Wanna Do", and Best Female Pop Vocal Performance. In 1996, Crow released her self-titled album Sheryl Crow and won two Grammy’s for Best Rock Album and Best Female Rock Vocal Performance.
Now a nine-time Grammy Award winner who has sold more than 35 million albums around the world, Crow has performed duets with musical luminaries such as Sting and Mick Jagger, has been nominated for an additional 27 Grammy Awards, and has released eight studio albums—seven charting Top 10, four of them platinum-plus. Her most recent album, Feels Like Home, captures the sound of a great and established artist enjoying a kind of fresh start. Her current single, “Callin’ Me When I’m Lonely,” is Top 40 and climbing.
