On radio, Sheryl Crow comes off like the female Tom Petty - rootsy, reliable, sometimes great, but mostly just good. Thursday night at the Waterfront Entertainment Centre in Camden, Crow's lukewarm performance downgraded her status to the female John Mellencamp - rootsy, reliable, sometimes good, but never great. Which probably suits the crowd she draws. They say that when your albums start doing mega-sales - and Crow's three have sold in excess of 15 million copies - you're attracting lots of people who simply enjoy participating in a phenomenon.

IF IT MAKES you happy . . . Cycling superstar Lance Armstrong and rocker Sheryl Crow are engaged. Armstrong proposed to Crow last Wednesday in Sun Valley, Idaho, but waited a few days before announcing it in a statement. No wedding date has been set. The marriage will be the second for Armstrong, who has three children with ex-wife Kristin. It will be the first for Crow, whose new album, "Wildflower," will be released later this month. Penthouse feet Ah, celebs and their whims.

Triple Grammy winner Sheryl Crow took the stage of the Tower Theater Sunday night in front of a sold-out crowd, and she was played out. "Aren't you tired of that album?" she asked midway through the show, referring to her multi- platinum Tuesday Night Music Club. No. But she apparently is. Crow and her band have toured without a break since her debut's release in August 1993. They were scheduled for some downtime when the album unexpectedly zoomed up the charts, and more shows were booked.

Saying Philadelphia will host the largest free concert in America, Mayor Nutter announced yesterday that the singer Sheryl Crow will headline the Sunoco Welcome America Fourth of July celebration. Calling Philadelphia "the only place to really celebrate the true birth of our nation," Nutter said the festival would be nine days of activities, including fireworks, a parade, and Crow, a Grammy-winning rocker, as the grand finale in concert on the Benjamin Franklin Parkway. The festival, which begins June 26, will also feature the culinary treats of "Taste of Philadelphia.

The summer concert scene is diluted to the point where you can assemble any old gaggle of acts under the pretext of promoting a particular lifestyle, slap a corporate name on the affair, and voila, instant summer festival. The Jeep World Outside Festival (a joint venture between Chrysler-Jeep and Outside magazine), which touched down at the Tweeter Center on Friday, catered to the thrill-seeking music fan, with mountain biking, skiing, kayaking, scuba diving, and snowboarding exhibitions featuring pro athletes in action on the concourse.

Sheryl Crow sure looked like a Jersey girl when she took the stage in Atlantic City on Friday night. In a sleeveless vest; thick, studded belt; black jeans; and square-toed biker boots, she resembled a tomboy Springsteen. The musical presentation of this rocker chick was pretty brawny, too, as she ran through most of her most recent album, Detours, along with a generous sampling of her hits. Crow got the mellow stuff out of the way right off the bat with a solo acoustic version of "God Bless This Mess.

The most outrageous characteristic of Sheryl Crow, the long-awaited second album from the pop singer and sometime songwriter of "Leaving Las Vegas" fame, isn't the lyric about kids buying guns from Wal-Mart, or that pointed observation about platinum canaries and lo-fi pioneers. It's the fact that Crow, who produced the album herself, feels she needs an image overhaul to sell her latest songs. Get ready for the 1996 model Crow, totally redesigned and repositioned as an alterna-babe to sell the new Sheryl Crow (A&M, . 1/2)

A shocker from Sheryl Crow: The singer-songwriter says she has a brain tumor. Luckily, it's benign, Crow tells the Las Vegas Review-Journal. Crow, 50, says she's been worried about recurrent memory loss for some time. (Just last month, she forgot the lyrics to "Soak Up the Sun" at a Florida show.) An MRI in November revealed that Crow has meningioma, which develops from the lining that protects the brain and spinal cord. She stayed mum. "I haven't really talked about it," she said in an understatement.

Get ready for more "Year of the Woman" punditry. Yesterday, in the second set of Grammy nominations to be announced since Lilith Fair graduated its first class in 1997, hip-hop/soul avatar Lauryn Hill received 10 bids, Sheryl Crow and Shania Twain each bagged six, Madonna pulled down five, and many of the award's most prestigious categories were overwhelmed by women artists. It was one of the most striking sets of nominations in rock-era Grammy history. In the album-of-the-year contest, Hill's The Miseducation of Lauryn Hill will go up against Madonna's Ray of Light, Sheryl Crow's The Globe Sessions, Shania Twain's Come on Over, and Version 2.0 by Garbage, the quartet fronted by singer Shirley Manson.

Once again, the pop-music boat is in the harbor, and the folks at the National Academy of Recording Arts and Sciences (NARAS) are still standing at the dock. Yesterday, nominations for the 87 categories of the 37th annual Grammy Awards - to be held March 1 at Los Angeles' Shrine Auditorium - were announced. And while not as painfully unhip as they once were, the 8,000 industry insiders who determine the nominees have retained their mysterious, middlebrow ways. Sheryl Crow and Babyface both have five shots at winning.

Just how many "Do You Hear What I Hears" do you want to hear? One more, at least. The Christmas music invasion has been going on for weeks, if not months, by now. The playlist below highlights reindeer season songs of note by both flashy pop stars and less exposed indie acts, with a mix of traditional and freshly minted holiday songs. Some of these songs date back hundreds of years, but all have been recorded and released in 2014, starting with the gospel-blues "Do You Hear What I Hear?"

One morning in March, Sheryl Crow was tuned to a country radio station in Nashville while driving her kids to school. Listening to dudes singing about pickup trucks, moonshine, and girls in their Daisy Dukes, Crow took to Twitter to vent. "Will somebody please play a woman on the radio?" she pleaded. "Any woman. It doesn't have to be me but if I hear one more bro country song I'm gonna vomit!" Sorry, Sheryl. The Bro Country onslaught hasn't abated yet - though there are signs of a backlash, led by the teenage female duo Maddie & Tae. And this summer, Bro Country is coming to the Philadelphia area in a big, Bro-dacious way. Thursday night, Blake Shelton, Bro-friendly star of the TV music reality show The Voice , will play a free concert on the beach in Atlantic City for 60,000 toes-in-the-sand concertgoers.

Sheryl Crow still single Dating's for the birds, man. Just look at Sheryl Crow , a 52-year-old single mom of two, who has survived breast cancer and a brain tumor. Whenever she's on a date, she feels as if she has to dumb herself down. "I had always gone out with guys who were highly successful, which would seem like it would put me at an equal level. But what ends up happening is that one of you becomes smaller - and it was always me. It's always the woman," the singer tells Good Housekeeping.

Sheryl Crow, who's previously suffered from breast cancer, has a brain tumor. The good news is the tumor is benign. In an interview with the Las Vegas Review Journal, Sheryl, 50, said her memory had gotten so bad, she had an MRI done. She got the news about the tumor, a typically benign meningioma, last November, but has kept quiet about it. According to People magazine, the tumor should not require surgery. World to end during sweeps? We already have "Survivor.

TYPICALLY, most of the bull on a film set comes from the producers and the publicists. But yesterday in Cadiz, Spain, seven bulls cast for the film "Knight & Day," starring Tom Cruise and Cameron Diaz, broke free and slightly injured two people. Picador. Any dor. Cruise and Diaz were not on set yesterday, and if they were, the bulls, who are merely supporting players, surely would have known to stay away from the talent. The stars are scheduled to arrive in Cadiz next weekend for shooting.
