For Sheryl Crow, there’s not much more she needs to accomplish. She has had a once in a lifetime career of success and amazing music. No doubt an eventual inductee into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, she has sold more than an astonishing 50 million albums worldwide. She has been nominated for a mind-blowing 32 Grammy Awards, eventually winning nine (so far).
Her music defies genres; from rock to pop to blues and country. For someone who just saw her in May playing the BeachLife Festival, let me assure you she looks and sounds as incredible as she ever did. It doesn’t hurt that she’s backed by an elite team of incredibly talented musicians.
Crow exploded onto the scene seemingly out of nowhere with her debut album, the massively popular “Tuesday Night Music Club” in 1993.
“All I Wanna Do” was the first single to take off and would become a monster hit for Crow, hitting number one on the Billboard charts and eventually certified gold in the United States.
The song would receive major radio play, as well as the video on a seemingly endless rotation on MTV. This was followed by “Leaving Las Vegas,” “Strong Enough,” and “Can’t Cry Anymore,” eventually leading to the album becoming certified platinum seven times over.
Proving she was far from a one-hit wonder, Crow followed up with the self-titled sophomoric album in 1996. “Sheryl Crow” featured hits such as “If It Makes You Happy,” “A Change Would Do You Good,” and “Everyday is a Winding Road.” The album would eventually go triple platinum.
Crow has the distinct honor of performing a James Bond Theme; “Tomorrow Never Dies,” the title track off of the Pierce Brosnan flick. In 2002, she had hits again; one on her own album “Soak Up the Sun” with “C’mon C’mon,” as well as a top ten duet with Kid Rock on the country single “Picture.” Crow has released a total of 11 studio albums, live albums, and DVDs, as well as the Showtime documentary, “Sheryl,” which was released this year.

If you really wanna have some fun, check out the SHOWTIME documentary about the life and time of Sheryl Crow!
Crow is currently on tour and will be stopping by the Hollywood Bowl for the last date of her tour on August 3rd. Being that Crow is such an established and decorated musician, she often brings along equally talented and perhaps not as well-known openers.
This show will be no different as she has Keb’ Mo’ currently opening for her on tour. The uber talented blues musician has himself won five Grammy Awards. He originally released his debut album, “Rainmaker,” under his birth name, Kevin Moore.
He followed this up with the self-titled, “Keb’ Mo’” and has been using the signature name ever since. He has continued to release albums for the past four decades, with his most recent outing, “Good To Be…” released just this past January.
This is going to be a dynamite evening of phenomenal music in the historic Hollywood Bowl, where music dreams become fulfilled. You don’t want to miss this one.
