Sheryl Crow Turns 50

The Grammy Award winning singer is one of many celebrities celebrating a birthday in February

Sheryl Crow turns 50 on February 11. Yes, 50.

Go ahead. Google it. But don’t pay attention to the pictures you find, because we’re only saying that Crow, who has sold more than 35 million albums worldwide and won a slew of Grammys, is 50. We’re not saying she looks 50.

The gorgeous Missouri native started her music career as a backup singer for Michael Jackson in the late 1980s, then broke through in a big way when her 1993 debut solo album, Tuesday Night Music Club, went platinum seven times over in the United States, and spawned the earworm hit “All I Wanna Do.”

Since then, she has released six more albums — most recently 2010’s 100 Miles from Memphis — and more hit songs, including “If It Makes You Happy” and “My Favorite Mistake.” She’s a breast cancer survivor and advocate, having been diagnosed with the disease in 2006, shortly after her breakup from cyclist Lance Armstrong.

These days, she’s dating musician Doyle Bramhall II, raising her two young sons and writing the music for a Broadway version of the 1982 film Diner, set to hit the Great White Way this fall. Oh, and making 50 look fantastic.
