Sheryl Crow is a performer who likes to mix things up a bit. From the outset she seems like pretty much any other country and westren singer but she has managed to fuse the elements of Rock, blues even some Jazz into her repertoire. Her best period was from the mid 90’s to the mid 00s where she enjoyed a lot of chart success and became something of a household name. One of her biggest fans was the designer Tommy Hilfiger. In what was something a purple patch for Tommy in supporting music stars, he also sponsored Britany Spears and Lenny Kravitz during the time, he sponseroed he If it makes you happy tour. Although Sheryl is a girl, he obviously hoped that it would drive sales of things like Tommy Hilfiger Menswear, which you can now by at EJ Menswear.
Sheryl Crow’s voice is a pure country and Americana kind of style that is full of melodic virtue. She is one of the most recognisable singers even working a slightly gravelly tone at times to give her music that harder edge. She has hit the big time for two particular tunes. “All I wanna do” which has the most country vibe to it.
It is dedicated to a slacker lifestyle, combined with a barfly that just likes to drink Budweiser all day and night watching other people get on with their lives/ The other is “If it makes you happy”. This is a more rock based tune that ponders why so many people are getting to do what they want to do in life but still aren’t satisfied.
