Jennifer, I need you for my touring band

When nine-time Grammy award winner Sheryl Crow personally called Professor Jennifer Gunderman asking her to join her touring band, she didn’t pick up the phone. “I didn’t recognize the number — it was blocked — so I let it go to voicemail,” Gunderman said.

“She left a message, and the first thing she said was, ‘It’s Sheryl, and I know teaching’s important to you and you work at Vanderbilt, but I need a keyboard player for my touring band, and I was wondering if this would be something you’d be interested in,’” Gunderman said. “I guess she had heard from my husband that I like my job here.”
