Sheryl Crow's Music Tackles Single Motherhood On New Country Album (VIDEO)

Posted: Updated:

Sheryl Crow is poised to take the country world by storm with her new album "Feels Like Home," due out in September.

But the singer's genre switch from pop-rock to country isn't the only standout aspect about her new album. The single mom of two told the Associated Press Tuesday that one track on the album, "Waterproof Mascara" -- which was co-written by Brad Paisley -- tackles single motherhood.

"I made Brad Paisley write a chick song about being a single mom," she said.

The song, which can be heard in its entirety in the video above, includes the lyrics, "So I wear waterproof mascara/ There's things you shouldn't see when you're a kid/ Thank god they make waterproof mascara/ 'Cause it won't run like his daddy did."

Crow has two adopted sons, whom she adopted on her own.
