FANS SWARM TOWN SQUARE TO HONOR 1 OF THEIR OWN

The last time Grammy winner Sheryl Crow stood on the Dunklin County Courthouse steps in Kennett, Mo., she was being honored as a member of the homecoming court in high school.

"That was a special time, but this definitely tops it," Crow said Saturday during ceremonies at Sheryl Crow Day in her hometown.Crow, who now lives in California, cried as she received a key to the city and a proclamation from the chamber of commerce. Hundreds of fans swarmed the town square to get a glimpse of the singer-songwriter.

She stopped in Kennett, a farming community of about 10,000 people, on her way to a concert in Memphis, Tenn.

Crow's debut album, "Tuesday Night Music Club" earned three Grammys, including record of the year for the single "All I Wanna Do." Her second album is expected to be released early next year.
