Sheryl Crow didn't think 'All I Wanna Do' would be a hit.

The American singer/songwriter - who has won nine Grammy Awards throughout her career - admitted the record was almost a "throwaway" as she didn't think it would make it onto her debut album 'Tuesday Night Music Club'.

Speaking to BBC Radio 2, she explained: "I wouldn't be here if it wasn't for that song. It really opened doors for me, even though I had released singles before that. I think it was crossing the genres of rock, country and pop which made it so popular, as no female artist had done that before.

"That said, the song almost didn't make the record. It was almost a throwaway. It just clicked with people. I didn't understand why at first but now I do - it sounds punchy and right on the radio."

Crow - who won her battle with breast cancer in 2006 - also admitted while her last album, the politically-inspired 'Detours', was not as commercially successful as some of her other records, she still "loves" it.

The 48-year-old musician - who releases new LP '100 Miles from Memphis' this month - said: "It was a necessity for me, I needed to say those things. The record company said it was beautiful but no one would want to hear it.

"It didn't sell as well as I had hoped, but I hope it will have legs and stand the test of time. I still love that record."
