51-year-old Sheryl Crow has had an illustrious entertainment career. Her special brand of rock, country, and folk music has earned her the status of a bona fide music legend. She’s won nine Grammy awards and has been nominated a total of thirty-two times for a Grammys.
In her twenty year music career, she’s sold over fifty million records and has a net worth of $40 million. So what’s the real person like behind the rock star persona? Sheryl Crow hails from a small southern town in Missouri.
She grew up deep in the Bible belt in a community that today numbers just over 10,000. Most folks in her community were farmers and they tended to know one another. For her part, she ran track in high school and was a pretty decent sprinter.
To this day, Crow makes athletic sports a big part of her life which is one reason she remains physically fit. While in high school, she also was a drum majorette, but admits that in her small town of Kenneth she never dreamed of being famous.
She has survived breast cancer and a brain tumor. Fame has not diminished the down-to-earth roots that she grew up in.
