Sheryl Crow says adoption, album, breast cancer scare 'work out perfectly'

sherylcrow.jpgIt's hard to survive breast cancer, adopt two kids and go on a tour promoting a new album, but Sheryl Crow has figured out a way to do it. She even told Redbook all about it, and they were nice enough to send a preview to The Juice* inbox. We're kind of indifferent about Sheryl lately, but now all we can hear in our heads is her song Steve McQueen. Thanks, Redbook.

Crow, 48, says motherhood became a top priority in her life after surving her 2006 scare with cancer. She says that led her to adopt 3-year-old son Wyatt Steven, and just this past June, 9-week-old Levi James.

"It's been in the works for a while. I was hoping to adopt a child when Wyatt was 2; a lot of the adoptions fell through," Crow says. "But things always work out perfectly. They just do. Generally, when you let go of your vision of how something is supposed to be, the universe hands you exactly what you need."

Her mommy pals around town help with the whole not-having-a-husband thing:  "Here in Nashville, it's Kim Williams-Paisley (actress wife of country singer Brad Paisley), Nicole Kidman and another friend, Tracie Hamilton. They've been a wonderful resource for me. We get together at each other's homes, make dinner, and have girls' nights in. Or we'll go out for dinner and a drink--though we're mommies, so we don't let it all hang out."

She must be saving that behavior for her tour supporting 100 Miles From Memphis.
