SHERYL CROW WANTS TO SNARE COWBOY

Lance Armstrong with Ex. Sheryl Crow

Sheryl Crow has vowed to stay in Texas until she snares herself a cowboy.The country singer has no plans to sell her Texan Lone Star estate - which she bought with former lover and Austin native Lance Armstrong - because she wants to find a new Texan man. Sheryl announced during her performance at a rodeo on Wednesday night: "My sister said I needed to come out here and just say it, 'I'm looking for a cowboy'."I'm not giving up on Texas - yet."The 45-year-old performed her hit 'Are You Strong Enough to Be My Man', pausing midway to shout "Anybody up for the job?"The evening, 'Paint the Rodeo Pink', was themed in honor of Sheryl's battle against breast cancer. Pink cowboy hats were on sale with awareness ribbons on the brim - and the singer urged the audience to raise awareness of the illness. She said: "This is a real special night, because this time last year I got diagnosed with breast cancer and we couldn't come and we were so disappointed."We appreciate you wearing your pink. I know cowboys don't normally wear pink - but real cowboys can get away with it."Sheryl arrived on her black-and white spotted horse, which reared up and then galloped around the ring before she dismounted to perform. After forgetting the words to 'Soak up the Sun' she joked: "That, ladies and gentlemen, is how you know it's live - when you screw up the lyrics. No lip-synching here."Sheryl left the rodeo in a stylish red Mustang convertible.
