Crenshaw's eponymous debut album was released in 1982 and included the song "Someday, Someway," which reached #36 on the Billboard Top 100 chart. The '90s Pop rock band, Gin Blossoms' song, "Til I Hear It from You," was co-written by Crenshaw and it reached #11 on the U.S. Billboard Hot 100 chart in 1996.
