From poverty and teen homelessness to the triumph of international stardom, the three-time Grammy nominee has enjoyed career longevity rare among her generation of artists and has sold 27 million albums worldwide. Her debut album, "Pieces of You," became one of the best selling debut albums of all time, going platinum 12 times. Last year the singer/songwriter released her first country record, "Perfectly Clear," which debuted at No. 1 on the Billboard Top Country Albums chart. In May 2009, she will release an album of original and traditional lullabies. She lives on a working ranch in Stephenville, Texas with her husband, World Champion bull-riding superstar Ty Murray.
