Melissa Etheridge says she enjoys doing solo shows to get ready for a new album, but there's also another reason.

About Melissa Etheridge
Melissa Etheridge is an American rock singer/songwriter and guitarist. Her self-titled debut album was released in 1988, peaked at number 22 on the Billboard charts and eared her a Grammy nomination for Best Female Rock Vocal Performance. In 1993, she won her first Grammy for her single "Ain't It Heavy." In October 2004, she was diagnosed with breast cancer, but returned to the stage during the 2005 Grammy Awards and performed a tribute to Janis Joplin despite the fact that she was bald from chemotherapy. Etheridge is known for her mixture of "confessional lyrics, pop-based folk-rock, and raspy, smoky vocals" (Greg Prato, "All Music Guide").
