Fresh off the release of her new album Feels Like Home, Sheryl Crow scored a feature in the latest issue of Parade magazine.

During her Q&A session with the publication, the "Soak Up the Sun" songstress opened up about the album and revealed what other career path she would have chosen.

Check out a few highlights from Miss Crow's interview below. For more, be sure to visit Parade!

On Feels Like Home:
"I moved to Nashville almost eight years ago, after I finished breast cancer treatment. My friend Brad Paisley said to me, 'If your records were put out now, they'd be considered country.' He encouraged me and was instrumental in getting me a record deal. I've always written songs with stories, but now they're stronger and in the first person."

On her single "Waterproof Mascara":
"I wanted to make a record about what it's like to be a woman right now, like Tammy [Wynette] and Loretta [Lynn] did. So writing about being a single working mom was important to me."

On other career aspirations:
"I think I'd be a veterinarian because I'm animal crazy. I have 11 horses, two dogs, chickens, donkeys and two Texas longhorn cows. I want to instill in my songs [ages 6 and 3] a love of nature. We're all renting Earth, so we have to talk care of it."
