[NEWS] Sheryl added to Reese Witherspoon's Louisville appearance


By Kirby Adams
Louisville Courier Journal

Add a Grammy award-winning musician to that cup of tea, please.

Nine-time Grammy Award recipient Sheryl Crow will be asking the questions during actress Reese Witherspoon's "Whiskey in a Teacup" book tour this month at the Kentucky Center for the Arts.

Reese, one of the most powerful women in Hollywood, is bringing her buzzed-about book tour to Louisville, and it's all about growing up in the South.

Crow, who just happens to be in Louisville the same weekend to perform at the Bourbon and Beyond Festival Sept. 22 will chat with Reese the night before, Sept. 21 at 7:30 p.m. in Whitney Hall. (FYI: general admission tickets start for Bourbon & Beyond start at $110).

"Whiskey in a Teacup" is part memoir, part recipe and entertaining manual for how to party like a Southerner. The eight-city tour, fittingly, hits mostly Southern cities. Witherspoon spent most of her childhood further down Interstate 65 in Nashville.

"My Southern heritage informs my whole life, and spreading the gospel of Southern living has become sort of an obsession of mine. I bring the South everywhere I go with bluegrass, big holiday parties, and plenty of Dorothea’s fried chicken," she wrote. (Dorothea is her mom, BTW.)

REVIEW

Rolling Stone magazine: "Sheryl Crow's set among the 10 best things we saw at the 2018 Lockn' Festival"

Best Hippie Gate-Crasher: Sheryl Crow

By Jedd Ferris
Rolling Stone

Was Sheryl Crow out of place at a hippie festival? Not even a little bit. During the tribal-drum intro to her mainstay tune “Everyday Is a Winding Road” Crow playfully declared, “I want to be in the forest tonight, listening to some Jerry,” and from that point on the crowd was completely on her side. The singer ran through many of her popular favorites, and in the hands of her razor-sharp band, they were delivered with twangy bravado. While her reputation as a Nineties hitmaker will always be there, the boot-kicking shuffle of “Can’t Cry Anymore” and pedal steel winding through the singalong of “All I Wanna Do” made it easy to notice that Crow’s live sound is actually right in line with today’s best Americana. Before playing her latest single, the politically-charged “Wouldn’t Want to Be Like You,” Crow joked about the song giving her an unexpected return to the FM radio dial: “For someone who’s 56 and a chick, that’s weird, right?”

[NEWS] Sheryl Crow's Bringing More Sequins, Fringe and Embroidery to Her HSN Clothing Line

Colleen Kratofil
August 16, 2018 04:35 PM

A year after launching her very own clothing line for HSN, Sheryl Crow has found her design groove — and her new collection is going to be filled with even more sequins, fringe and embroidery to love.

As always, Crow got most of her design inspiration from pieces in her own closet, but this time she studied exactly what her shoppers loved to really push the envelope. “I’m finding that the women who buy my line, they tend to really love the specialty items which gives me the freedom to step it up a little bit and create things that have a little more edge and a little more fun to them,” she tells PEOPLE.



One way that she’s expanding her best-sellers is by taking an item shoppers loved — like her Americana bag — and interpreting it in a new way (her new collection has a matching American flag boot). “Our shoppers are really drawn to things that have embroidery or sequin or fringe,” she says.

Although she doesn’t like spending thousands of dollars on high-end designer buys, the musician does dole out money when it comes to expanding her own vintage collection.



“Real old vintage T-shirts can be extremely expensive,” she says. “The last one I bought was a Rolling Stones T-shirt from the 1981 tour and that was about $200 and that’s a lot to pay for a T-shirt, especially one that’s been worn for 20 something years by someone else.”

But that was a purchase that was worth the splurge. “I love the history and [the Rolling Stones] kind of wrote the book on what I do now,” she says about her vintage-inspired designs.



She’s so committed to vintage living, she still has a pair of Dingo boots that she got for Christmas at age 15. “I still have them and I still wear them and they are awesome.”

If you can’t wait to shop Crow’s newest line, catch her live on August 23, 5 p.m.-7 p.m. and 9 p.m. ET and August 24, 7 a.m.-8 a.m. and 10 a.m.-11 a.m. ET on HSN and scroll below for a sneak peek at items from her new collection.

[MAG] InStyle - Money Talks (August 2018)


Money Talks, and so should we. Here, powerful women get real about their spending and saving habits.

By Jennifer Ferrise
Style Magazine

Sheryl Crow might be a nine-time Grammy winner with 10 studio albums, sell-out tours, and legions of adoring fans, but she’s followed an unconventional path to rock-star status.

Growing up in Kennett, Mo., Crow came from a long line of school teachers, so naturally, when she graduated from the University of Missouri, she went straight into the family biz. As an elementary school music teacher, she struggled to make ends meet. “I made $17,000 my first year of teaching (1984-85), and $17,400 the next year." (about $40,000 in 2018 USD, adjusting for inflation).

When she wasn't in the classroom, Crow played in a band, and serendipitously, her silky smooth vocals eventually caught the attention of an exec who was casting for an upcoming McDonald’s commercial. Crow booked the gig with the fast food giant and, in turn, earned her first big paycheck. “I went in, sang a jingle one afternoon, and made $42,000 in about 30 minutes" (over $98,000 in 2018 USD).

Soon after, Crow left Missouri for L.A. to pursue her dream of singing professionally. She worked as a waitress to pay the bills while she promoted her music on the side. And then came the King of Pop.

“My big break came about eight months after I moved to L.A.,” Crow recalls. “I was recording a session singing backup, and I overheard some people talking about auditioning for Michael Jackson’s tour, so I found out where it was, crashed the audition, and wound up landing the job as one of his backup singers. It was absolutely crazy and one of those meant-to-be moments.”

Besides being a dream come true, the Jackson job meant a steady income. “I was renting a one-room apartment in L.A., waiting tables at a jazz club, and living check to check,” she says. “Finally I could afford things! At the time, my car had a boot on it because I illegally parked it so many times and I couldn't pay the tickets. When I landed that gig, I finally could afford to get the boot taken off of my car.”

Backup singing paved the way to full-on super stardom, of course, with her own hits like "All I Wanna Do" and "Soak Up the Sun" eventually climbing the charts alongside Jackson's. And though she's no longer scraping by, Crow says her working class roots have helped shape her entire philosophy about money. “I'm still that frugal girl from Missouri who was raised knowing the worth of a dollar,” she says. “My relationship to money is still ‘work hard, get paid.’

There’s no mistaking that Crow is still working hard. Most recently, she dropped a new single, “Wouldn't Want To Be Like You” featuring Annie Clark a.k.a St. Vincent. She’s also still working on her next studio album, which she says may be the final album of her career. “I feel like it will be my last one,” she says of the project expected to drop in early next year. “I'll always release music. But I think our ears are built differently now. People don't sit down and listen to an album from top to bottom anymore. And I love the idea of being very immediate, making singles, and putting things out that way.” The album will feature women who have inspired Crow over the years too, like Stevie Nicks and Emmylou Harris.

When she’s not in the studio, Crow is pursuing other creative outlets, like designing her eponymous clothing and accessory collection, Sheryl Crow for HSN. “The line is very organic and fun to create,” says Crow, who shops her own closet for design inspiration. “I'm very drawn to vintage and denim — I wanted everything to have that American flair.”

Affordability was also an important requirement for Crow. Jeans clock in at around $100, while leather accessories like Crow’s best-selling Americana booties are priced under $200. “I hate how expensive clothes have become,” she adds. “I don't like spending $3,000 on a handbag, or $2,000 on a jacket. Every woman wants to look great, and it can be depressing when what you love is ridiculously overpriced. I wanted to make clothes that would look cool and edgy, and not break the bank.”



On her financial upbringing… I grew up in a small town in the '70s where everybody was middle class. There might've been one or two families that made more money because they were doctors or had tons of farmland, but there weren’t really rich people. We were middle class too, and my parents worked really hard. We got an allowance, and if we wanted things we got summer jobs. They were great about getting us the things we needed, but if there was something we wanted, we had to buy it. I babysat to make money. It helped me buy my first car.

On teaching her sons about money… I wasn't a kid who got everything I wanted. I'm trying to raise my boys that way so that they understand that everything has worth and there are certain things you have to work for. I think it's valuable in this day and age because children are growing up with more at their disposal.

On her time as a teacher… I come from a family of teachers. I’m still very shocked by how little teachers make. Even though the argument is that you have two months off during the summer, teachers are spending more time with our kids during the school year than the parents are. We're creating the future of this country. I made $17,000 (about $40,000 in 2018 USD) my first year teaching; when I sang a jingle I made $42,000 (over $98,000 in 2018 USD) in one afternoon. I think our priorities are kind of wack. I figured out a way to live on $17,000 though. It really teaches you early on how to budget and live within your means. It's still a part of my core values.

On the importance of being financially independent… I think you create your own independence when you're able to manage your finances and live within your means. It's very stressful to be in debt. And now, so many kids are already in debt with student loans when they get out of school. I can't even imagine the pressure that brings. There's a lot of freedom in being able to manage your money, so you’re not just paying off the interest to the bills that you've run up.

On her favorite way to splurge… Oh my goodness. I have an 11-year-old and an 8-year old, so we like to do crazy, goofy stuff together. We're getting ready to rent an RV, take a vacation, and just drive around to places that we wouldn't go otherwise. Recently, we all got dirt bikes too. That was my last big splurge. They loved it. My role as mom is finding ways to keep my kids outside in nature as opposed to inside on video games. So anything that we can do that is outside and as a family is the best.

On her biggest money mistake… Like a lot of other people, I lost a lot of money when the market crashed. And that was a real turning point for me. I was never a risky investor, but from that moment forward, I realized whenever you're hoping to make more money off of the money that you've already made, like that ‘I want more, I want more’ greedy mentality, you're always putting yourself at risk. So now when I invest, I stay low risk. I put my money behind really solid investments. It doesn't feel natural to work this hard and lose a lot of money.

On knowing your own worth… We're entering a phase now where women are coming together and saying, ‘We demand equality.’ It’s so important to know your worth and demand that it be honored. And there are ways to put that across that are not overwhelming for people. You need to be articulate and organized in your thoughts. You have to treat other people with respect, so you can demand that respect back. And if you ever find yourself in a situation where you're not being respected, know that something better will come along. Don't kowtow to that. No amount of money is worth that.
