Sheryl Crow Fun Facts

NPR had a good interview with Sheryl Crow today (listen here).  Here’s a couple of interesting things I learned:

  1. Crow actually produced an album prior to her official debut album, Tuesday Night Music Club.  But she asked her label, A&M Records, NOT to release it because she didn’t think it represented who she was as an artist.  She felt that it was “too slick” and over-produced.  Surprisingly, A&M obliged.
  2. The lyrics for Crow’s breakout hit, All I Wanna Do, were adapted from a poem by American poet Wyn Cooper.  At the time, Sheryl Crow was a complete unknown (as was Cooper).  Little did Cooper know that the royalties that from this one song would allow him to quit his job and become a full time poet.
