Sheryl Crow hails from the small town of Kennett in the boot heal of Missouri. After an impressive high school career both academically and athletically, Sheryl attended the University of Missouri-Columbia where she received a degree in music. She then taught music at an elementary school near St. Louis and began playing with area bands. Success with recording jingles for commercials led her to LA where she was able to land a back-up vocalist spot on Michael Jackson’s Bad Tour in 1987. After this she became a session vocalist and songwriter for a variety of rock artists. After several unsuccessful starts to a solo career, Sheryl began collaborating with a group of musicians known as the “Tuesday Music Club.” Out of this came her debut album in 1994, Tuesday Night Music Club. The album was slow to catch on but the third single “All I Wanna Do” would help propel the album to #3 on the charts, three Grammy awards, and over 7 million in sales. The album would also contain the hits “Leaving Las Vegas,” “Strong Enough,” and “Can’t Cry Anymore.” The album would be the first of five straight platinum studio releases for her. The success of the album would also lead to a coveted performance at Woodstock ’94 and a lot of exposure for Crow. However, Sheryl had a falling out with other members of the “Tuesday Music Club” and cut ties with them after the album's success. Crow would not suffer a sophomore slump on her second album, 1996’s triple platinum self-titled album that produced the hits “If It Makes You Happy” and “Every Day is a Winding Road” and two more Grammy awards. Her third release, The Globe Sessions, contained just one Billboard hit, “My Favorite Mistake,” but still collected two more Grammy awards in 1998. Besides successful solo albums, Crow also has experienced success on movie soundtracks, even gaining another Grammy for her cover of Guns N’ Roses “Sweet Child O’ Mine” for the Big Daddy soundtrack in 1999. Because her music appeals to many genres of music, Crow has been able to collaborate with a wide range of musicians during her career. Her live album Sheryl Crow and Friends: Live from Central Park is a great example of her diversity as she performs with Eric Clapton, The Dixie Chicks, Stevie Nicks and others for what became a gold album that generated yet another Grammy with the song “There Goes the Neighborhood.” She would take some time before returning to the music scene, first with another hit single, the duet “Picture” with Kid Rock, and then in 2002 with the album C’mon C’mon. The album earned Crow two more hits, “Soak Up the Sun” and “Steve McQueen,” the latter of which earned her yet another Grammy award. A greatest hits package was next in 2003. Also on the album was a new cover of Cat Stevens’ “The First Cut is the Deepest,” which went #1 on three Billboard charts and #14 on the Billboard Hot 100. The Very Best of Sheryl Crow has sold over 4 million copies since its release. 2005’s Wildflower album failed to reach sales of her previous albums and contained no major hits but still earned Crow two more Grammy nominations. Crow’s latest album, Detours, was released in 2008 and earned Crow yet another Grammy nomination.

Past Moondance Jam Performances

My Take
I have always admired Sheryl Crow since she exploded onto the music scene since she is a fellow Missourian and because she sounds great live. The first time I remember hearing her live was at Woodstock ’94. Since that was the summer I got married and money was not available for me to actually attend, I paid around $50 for the pay-per-view telecast and watched it all weekend. I did the same again for Woodstock ’99. I thought her performances were among the best at both festivals. She has had so many hits and Grammy awards I feel she is one of the biggest names to ever grace the Moondance Jam stage. After hearing of her signing I bought her greatest hits album and DVR’d two different live shows, her C’mon C’mon live DVD release and her Soundstage performance. I have also checked out many youtube videos (see below). I have been so impressed with her live sound that I even picked up her Live at Central Park album. I have yet to hear a bad performance from her and now I have become a full-fledged Sheryl Crow fan. My favorite songs for her to sing live are “Steve McQueen” and “The Difficult Kind.” If anyone is worried she will be somewhat mellow because of her studio sound, trust me she brings something extra to her live show and will put on a show to remember at this year’s jam. She played well-received sets opening night sets at both Woodstock ’94 and ’99, and will do the same at Moondance Jam Rockin’ 18. We are lucky to have her. I have also been impressed with how many collaborations she has done over the years with a wide variety of artists, from Sting to Don Henley to the Dixie Chicks to Kid Rock, just to name a few. With 9 Grammy awards and 3 AMA awards, she is one of the most lauded performers in Moondance Jam history. I am looking forward to her set on the first official day of the jam, which I assume will be the 9 or 11pm slot. Ideally, I would like to see her at 9pm and Kid Rock at 11pm. This would allow us the treat of them performing their hit duet “Picture” together. That would be a night to remember.
