Jewel is an acclaimed American singer, songwriter, actress, poet, painter, philanthropist and daughter to an Alaskan cowboy singer-songwriter. From the remote ranch of her Alaskan youth to the triumph of international stardom, the three-time GRAMMY nominee, hailed by the New York Times as a "songwriter bursting with talents" has enjoyed career longevity rare among her generation of artists. Whether alone with her guitar or fronting a band of ace musicians, Jewel has always been a charismatic live performer, earning the respect of other singer-songwriters such as Merle Haggard, Bob Dylan and Neil Young, who, not only invited her to open their shows, but mentored her in the early phases of her career.
After a tremendous amount of success as a singer-songwriter and over 27 million albums sold, in 2013 Jewel released a Greatest Hits album. The album features a collection of her most known songs as well as two new duets with Kelly Clarkson and The Pistol Annies, in addition to a new track called "Two Hearts Breaking." She will also star as June Carter Cash in the Lifetime Original Movie "Ring of Fire," based on June's life, which will make its world premiere on Lifetime on Monday, May 27 at 8:00pm ET/PT.
Jewel currently lives on a working ranch in
Stephenville, Texas with her husband, World Champion bull-riding superstar,
Ty Murray and their baby
Kase Townes Murray.
