Sheryl Crow started out in the late 1980s singing jingles and supporting Michael Jackson on his “Bad” tour. After a scrapped album in 1992 she joined an ad hoc group of  musicians known to themselves as the “Tuesday Music Club”.

Her first album to be released, Tuesday Night Music Club gradually drew attention, with “All I Wanna Do” becoming an unexpected smash hit in 1994. Other great singles like “Strong Enough” and “Can’t Cry Anymore” led the album to sell 7 million copies, and resulted in her winning several Grammy Awards. Follow up albums Sheryl Crow and The Globe Sessions were huge hits. She also began acting. Although her music since hasn’t been as commercially successful as her 1990s work, she has a great songbook. We look forward to checking out many of her essential tracks this week.
