Sheryl200.jpgSheryl Crow has sold her music publishing catalogue to an Australian asset management group for an estimated 10 million bucks.

The deal gives the company the majority of royalties from her long string of hits, including "All I Wanna Do."

According to the Wall Street Journal, investors are attracted to music publishing - the ownership and promotion of copyrights on melodies and lyrics - because of the steady income from royalties.

So why do you think Sheryl is selling? Is this a wise investment for her - or does she just really need the cash?
