Sheryl Crow Sez Radio Needs to Pay

Singer Sheryl Crow has called for artists to be paid when their songs air on U.S. radio following news of Dionne Warwick’s bankruptcy, according to

The veteran R&B star has run up $10.7 million in debts, and bankruptcy papers filed in court in New Jersey last week suggest the “Walk On By” legend is so broke, she has just $10 in disposable cash once her monthly expenses are covered.

Most of Warwick’s debt is due to unpaid taxes, but Crow believes singers would be better off if they were paid royalties alongside songwriters when their hits are played on radio in America.
