Jewel was born in Payson, Utah. Shortly after her birth, the family moved to Homer, Alaska. She spent most of her younger years living with her father in Homer. Their home did not have indoor plumbing but instead an outhouse.

Jewel and he father when they had the chance earned a living by singing in bars and taverns.

Jewel learned how to play the guitar at Interlochen, Michigan Arts Academy and she learned how to write songs at age 16.

She lived in her van for awhile as she traveled the country playing street performances and small concerts.

Jewel was discovered by John Hogan, the lead singer from the local San Diego, California band Rust, told his manager Inga Vainshtein about Jewel’s talents. Vainshtein showed up at the Interchange coffee shop with a representative from Atlantic Records and the rest is history.

Jewel is married to nine-time world champion pro rodeo cowboy Ty Murray. They tied the knot on August 7, 2008 in the Bahamas.

The 2010 Indianapolis 500 is scheduled to start at 1 p.m. (ET) Sunday May 30 and will be broadcast live on ABC-TV and the IMS Radio Network.
