Sheryl Crow 

Sheryl Crow releases her sophmore album — and my favorite — on September 24, 1996.

Unlike her debut album, this one is all hers — written and produced by her and her alone.

It includes “Redemption Day,” a song that Johnny Cash took a fancy to and recorded just before he passed away. Sheryl included it on her latest release, “Threads” as a duet and it’s a damn show-stopper.
