Sheryl Crow’s had a lot of ups and downs in her life, but in a new interview with “People” she’s looking back at one of the lowest. That happened in 2006 after discovering she had breast cancer just weeks after ending her engagement to Lance Armstrong.
“When I was diagnosed and my relationship fell apart, people were camped outside trying to get that picture of Sheryl Crow at her lowest moment. I just lost all faith in humankind,” she says. “But I licked my wounds. I started feeling like, ‘I’m at a point in my life where I need to manifest something more realistic.’”
That something else was a move to Nashville, and the adoption of her two sons, Wyatt in 2007 and Levi in 2010.
“Now I have a place to come home to. I feel like everything in your life presents itself as a means of helping you remember who you are. There are so many times along the way that you forget who you are, and that’s when you find yourself the loneliest,” she says, adding, “In the last 10 years I have come into contact with the person I was born as before all of this craziness, and I feel more in touch with the small-town girl from Missouri.”
