[NEWS] Hometown Hero Sheryl Crow Leads Kennett Crossroads Concert
By Diane Cho
In high school, Sheryl Crow was a wall flower. This quiet girl from the tiny own of Kennett, Missouri went from landing small parts in high school musicals to being one of country music’s most successful stars. This Sunday, Crow will head back to her hometown to help the future stars of Kennett hone their skills and to give them an amazing show.
“If you looked in my yearbook and there was a category for the girl least likely to be a rock star, there would be a picture of me. I wound up being an accompanist for the plays. But it wasn’t until my senior year that I got a small part in the ensemble for Damn Yankees,” Crow told CMT. “I wish I could go back and do it all over again and put myself out there more.”
Thankfully, Crow continued to follow her dreams and now she’s heading back to the place where it all started on Sunday (January 18th) to host an acoustic songwriter’s night at the Kennett’s Opera House with fellow famous alumni David Nail, Blackjack Billy featuring Noll Billings and Trent Tomlinson. Then on Monday they’ll perform a full band show in the school’s auditorium. For tickets and more information on the Kennett Crossroads concert, check out their website and spread the word!
