She is the darling of country and an international pop star in her own right with a musical foot that bridges across genres of music and sound. A Kennett, Missouri native, Sheryl Suzanne Crow did not get her chance to explore further into music until after college when she found employment as an elementary school music teacher. On free weekends, she spent her time singing for local bands until she caught the eye of a local music producer who booked her for several small advertisement jingles. The gigs eventually lined her up as a backup vocalist for Michael Jackson's Bad World Tour in 1987. The break got her into the scene which soon had her performing back up for other artists like Stevie Wonder and Don Henley. Sheryl Crow's debut album, <i>Tuesday Night Music Club</i>, was distributed finally in 1993 after a brief production hiatus. The album earned her three awards at the 1995 Grammy's: Record of the Year, Best New Artist and Best Female Vocal Performance. Since then, she has gone on to produce an additional six award winning albums and toured world wide with acts like The Rolling Stones, Sarah McLachlan, the Dixie Chicks and headlined at Woodstock festivals. Sheryl Crow's personal life has garnered just as much infamy as her chart topping singles. She had been linked romantically to the likes of Eric Clapton, been engaged to Lance Armstrong, and publicly disclosed information on her battle with breast cancer in 2006.
