''Sheryl Crow'' is the second album by American singer Sheryl Crow, released in 1996 (see 1996 in music). Reaching #6 on the Billboard 200 and #5 on the UK Album Chart, ''Sheryl Crow'' has sold 2.9 million units in the US as of January 2008 and is certified 3x platinum. As of February 2008, it has sold 880,344 copies in the UK.

The song "Love Is a Good Thing" contains the lyrics "Watch out sister, watch out brother, watch our children while they kill each other with a gun they bought at Wal-Mart discount stores" (in criticism of Wal-Mart's gun sales policy). For this reason, sales of the album were banned at Wal-Mart stores.

"Redemption Day" was covered by Johnny Cash on his second posthumous record, American VI: Ain't No Grave.

''Sheryl Crow'' is featured in ''Vital Pop: 50 Essential Pop Albums'' list by ''Slant'' magazine. The album also made the ''Village Voice Pazz and Jop'' poll at number 26 and Mojo named it the 39th best album of 1996. British magazine ''Q'' named ''Sheryl Crow'' one of their 90 favorite albums of the 90s. ''Rolling Stone'' also selected it as one of the essential albums of that decade in 1999, while naming the self-titled effort the 44th greatest album of all time by a female artist in 2002. In 2008, ''Entertainment Weekly'' magazine placed the album at number 39 in their list of Top 100 Best Albums of the past 25 years. - Wikipedia
