Sheryl Crow’s debut album, Tuesday Night Music Club, turns 30 this week. Can you believe it? Neither can we.

While the album’s initial singles, including Run Baby Run and What I Can Do For You, weren’t that successful, Crow found her breakthrough with the fourth single, All I Wanna Do.

Based on the 1987 poem, Fun, by Wyn Cooper, the single was released in July 1994 and went on to win two Grammy Awards at the 1995 ceremony, Record Of The Year and Best Female Pop Vocal Performance. All I Wanna Do was also nominated for Song Of The Year. During the ceremony, Crow won the Grammy Award for Best New Artist.

In Australia, the song peaked at #1 on the ARIA Singles Chart, landed at #27 on the year-end chart, and was certified Platinum. The album, produced by Bill Bottrell, was massive in Australia – like its most successful single, the album hit #1 on the ARIA Albums Chart. Tuesday Night Music Club was certified triple Platinum after selling over 210,000 records.

“I cannot believe Tuesday Night Music Club came out 30 years ago this week,” Crow wrote on Instagram yesterday (1 August). We’re going to be celebrating this milestone all week! I’d love to hear what TNMC meant to you!” She then encouraged fans to post their experiences with the album in the comments section.

Some of the celebrations for Tuesday Night Music Club include a new Dolby Atmos mix of the album, which is now available to stream on Apple Music, Tidal and Amazon Music Unlimited.

Not part of the celebrations but likely feeling like it, Sheryl Crow will be inducted into the Rock And Roll Hall Of Fame this year alongside Missy Elliott, Kate Bush, George Michael, Rage Against The Machine, Willie Nelson and The Spinners.

Upon her induction, Crow told Rolling Stone that she was “shocked”. The Strong Enough singer added, “I don't feel like I've been doing this that long. It’s gone so fast. I really didn't see this coming”.
