After breaking up with fiancé Lance Armstrong and surviving cancer, the singer decided to move forward with her life by adopting son Wyatt in 2007 and son Levi in 2010.
In 2013, juggling motherhood and a career, Crow told Parade magazine she is a quintessential single working mom. “All of my decisions are based around what’s best for my kids,” she said. “I’m lucky that right now they’re little and pretty malleable when it comes to travel. I get to take them on the tour bus, and I get to tuck them in at night even though I’m tucking them into a bunk. We read stories, and I try to keep things as normal as possible. We take the things on the road that matter to them, and we try to keep things schedule-wise as normal as possible: naps, meals, and that sort of thing. But I’m just like every other working mom — I go to sleep at night with them on my mind, and I wake up with them on my mind, and all my decisions are informed by their presence in my life. I think that’s what all moms do.”
