About the Creator and Performer

Songwriter. Activist. Rock star. Woman. Champion. Mother. Nine-time Grammy winner Sheryl Crow is many things, but at the core, she remains a creative spirit channeling her talents into music that lifts people up, brings them together, and speaks to the truths on the horizon. Twenty-five years after winning her first Grammy, as well as Record of the Year and Best Female Pop Vocal Performance for "All I Wanna Do," the Kennett, Missouri-born guitarist/vocalist/creative thought about all she’d done, the places she’d been, the lives that’d touched hers—and saw the rich tapestry her journey had become. Crow’s is a career beyond dreams, with songs that defined the third wave of feminism, a rockist’s ability to sweep the pop charts without losing any edge and enough wide-open Midwestern joy to captivate the world. In 2019, Crow released her critically acclaimed album THREADS via The Valory Music Co., a collection of collaborations made with and in tribute to artists with whom Crow has musical connections. And in turn, she seeks to inspire people through her music and songs, especially the younger generation. "The passion and ability of our young people to dig deep and express themselves energizes and encourages me endlessly," Crow says. "It thrills me to see their passion and will to change the world." With new relevancy ahead of the 2020 election, Crow offers a rousing, reimagined take on her 2012 B-side, "Woman In The White House"— a show of solidarity with Democratic Presidential Nominee Joe Biden’s announcement of a female running mate.

Good listen

I forgot how much I love Sheryl Crow. Growing up, I really related to her music. I felt the melancholy she talks about. Probably why I loved her music. It’s nice to hear a little about her story. It gives me hope and faith that there are better days to come and not everything has to be figured out right now. Thank you Sheryl for sharing your story.

Love Love Love- Go, Audible!

This is a brilliant idea. Sheryl Crow is a brilliant artist. Perfect combo. Bravo.

I listen to something almost all day, every day at work. I get podcasts elsewhere and come to Audible for audiobooks. That’s my habit. Today I finished an audiobook and all the pods were depressing news. I started to listen to music instead but came back to Audible and saw this short piece. I was immediately entranced with the combination of great music and an interesting history.

I’m not sure how common these productions are but I’ll listen to as many as you can produce. I love this idea. Thank you.

Love It

To all of those that came up with this idea ... Incredible! As Sheryl says, the world is different, and that includes how we receive music and its poets. Everything I want is in this format! The who, what, when, where, and how in a little over 60 minutes.

At 68, I didn't know a lot about Sheryl Crow. Snatches of lyrics I recognized ... Appearances on Oprah ... Lance Armstrong ... Today, I know who and what and how it happened. I see the thread that connects this artist to those I admire and hold dear for their contribution to my life. And I am heartened that the thread continues to produce voices that tell our stories. Thanks, I will be bingeing the unknown (to me) works of this artist to hear what else I missed of her journey, and I do it with her personal roadmap of reasons, motivations, and inspirations that make sense of the musical story she's destined to tell.

Love Sheryl’s Authentic Sharing

I’m truly inspired and appreciate the inside look at a bold and courageous woman’s career. Beginning with a naive moxie, and not ending, but continuing with wisdom and an inner strength that always has been the foundation of Sheryl’s existence. Thank you, Sheryl Crow, for sharing your story. Keep singing sister—the world obviously loves your voice.

Genuine person

Sheryl Crow is my favorite female vocalist. Her style, to me, is lyrical storytelling from her life experiences. What makes this particular program so special is her singing. There are no backup singers or special effects, but mostly Sheryl and her guitar. I especially liked this version of All I Wanna Do and Redemption Day. Just her beautiful voice and you.

This was incredible!

All I can say is I hope alot of people listen to this. I was lucky enough to have some very good headphones and could appreciate the music as well as all the words. Thanks so much for sharing. I laughed, I cried, and I really loved this production.

Loved the music and her open, honest reflections on her lifetime of living and growing. I will probably listen many times more.

The journey of life and seizing the moment.

From "crashing" a Michael Jackson audition, leading to the need for a passport and enjoying the rides all night at Disneyland Paris.
The depression generated as a consequence of sexual harassment, powerfully articulated in What I Can Do For You and The Na-Na Song.
Beautifully articulates the journey of her life, and the acknowledgment that she remains a work in progress.
Guided by the necessity to both work hard and be a good person, and will now release contemporary songs with a pertinent message and no longer rely on the album format, in this playlist dominated environment.
Raw, honest and powerful, with some fabulous new arrangements of some of the classics from a four decade career.
Offers an incredible insight into a phenomenal talent, who is so real and ordinary and says it like it is.
