Sheryl Crow has always been so effortlessly cool, and her greeting to Hershey fans was no exception.

Rather than “waste time” worrying about technical difficulties, she said, she’d rather roll with the punches and get the music started.

“But y’all can hang, can’t you?” Crow asked the crowd.

Crow performed classic hits like “Everyday is a Winding Road” and “If It Makes You Happy,” as well as newer songs like “Be Myself” and “Long Way Back.”

She brought Margo Price up for a duet of “Strong Enough” and ended with an energetic rendition of the Allman Brothers Band’s “Night Rider” with Price and Lukas Nelson.

A returning act to the Outlaw Festival, female rocker Sheryl Crow performed a mostly hit-saturated set, although it was continuously marred by sound issues including blown-out stage monitors. Always a professional performer, Crow delighted with spirited renditions of fan favorites like “Can’t Cry Anymore,” “Every Day Is a Winding Road,” and “My Favorite Mistake.”

Rather than just play all the hits, Crow delivered two cuts from her recently released album “Be Myself,” including the album’s namesake and the self-reflective “Long Way Back.” Margo Price emerged to share vocal duties on Crow’s ’90s love ballad “Strong Enough” which proved to be a set highlight. The popular “If It Makes You Happy” led into Crow tipping her hat to one of music’s original outlaws, the late Gregg Allman. A bluesy interpretation of the Allman Brothers Band staple “Midnight Rider” had Lukas Nelson and Price helping to bring the hour-long set to a strong close.

The Morning Call

Sheryl Crow’s 50-minute, 10-song set succeeded mostly because she loaded it with hits, offering early the hit “Everyday is a Winding Road,” a great song, though Crow under-sang it, then a better “My Favorite Mistake.”“Be Myself,” the title track to her new album, was OK, as was the also-new “The Long Way Back Home.”

“The Best of Times” (which she dedicated to Florida and Texas hurricane victims) had her paying harmonica that got a big hand. It was interesting that Crow brought out Price to sing with her on “Strong Enough,” but ceded too much of the song to her.

Crow closed with a good reading of her hit “If It Makes You Happy,” then brought out Lukas Nelson and Price for a great version of The Allman Brothers’ “Midnight Rider,” on which Lukas Nelson again stole the show – absolutely killing the vocal and channeling Gregg Allman. And he traded guitar licks with Crow’s axman.
