11:05 Music Review with Marty Duda
Artist Of The Week is Sheryl Crow.
Sheryl Crow has been one of the most consistent hit makers of the past twenty years. She burst on the scene in 1993 when her hit single, All I Wanna Do, saturated the radio waves. Many more hits followed along with notable concert appearances and romances with Eric Clapton, Kid Rock and Lance Armstrong. Crow, who appears at Auckland's Vector arena this week, released her latest album, Detours, earlier this year. It's an album full of songs about her failed engagement, her battle with breast cancer, ruminations on current events and her newly-adopted son.
