Sheryl Crow: ‘Motherhood Has Made my Music Better’

Sheryl CrowSHERYL Crow believes that motherhood has made her music better.

The Grammy Award-winning artist -– who has adopted sons Wyatt, three and Levi, two months — thinks because being a parent has “enriched” her life, her new experiences are reflected in her work.

“Motherhood in general changes your life,” she said. “Your life informs your art and for me it’s just made my life so enriched. I’ve loved every minute of it.”

The 48-year-old singer — who battled breast cancer in 2006 — admitted that her emotional state is the reason for the different sound of her new album.

Comparing her new record 100 Miles From Memphis to her previous work, Sheryl said, “My last album had an urgency to it. I had a new baby Wyatt, I’d been through breast cancer and I had been through a bad break-up and I felt there was so much to write about.

“With this record I was coming from a much more emotional place. The idea of writing about desire and longing which is what soul music is typically known for, was where I was coming from”.
