[INTERVIEW] SHERYL CROW SHARES HER LOVE DEEPER THAN ANY OTHER

By JOSEPH HUDAK
TV GUIDE

"It's like Christmas every day," Sheryl Crow says about becoming a new mom. In May, the 45-year-old Grammy winner adopted a baby boy, Wyatt, and tonight she helps promote the cause by performing at A Home for the Holidays (8 pm/ET, CBS), the ninth-annual concert raising awareness for adoption. We spoke to Crow about the show, her forthcoming CD and hitting the road with her little guy in tow.

TV Guide: This is your third time performing at this concert….

Sheryl Crow: I love the premise. To me it's the perfect Christmas show, because it's about sharing love and family time, and all the wonderful things that I think Christmas is based on. It's wonderful to be a part of a show that is doing such great work.

TV Guide: Does it resonate even more this year, since you've adopted?

Crow: Absolutely. I've always believed that love is love, no matter what shape or size or color it comes in. But now to have experienced adopting a little boy and really knowing that I couldn't love [him] any deeper even if I had him myself, I think that's the story of adoption.

TV Guide: Do you see yourself as a role model, adopting as a single woman at 45?

Crow: I don't know. These decisions are such personal decisions, but if somebody else looks at it and says, "Well, she did it, I can do it," that's fantastic. But that never has or would weigh in to the decisions I've made.

TV Guide: How do you think you would fare if you were just starting out in today's music biz?

Crow: Oh my gosh. Well, it's hard to say. I know that right now, in this moment in our history, people are slower to discover music. It's much more about the wide immediate audience that a show like American Idol can bring. It's much more about writing music that's based in entertainment than it is lyric-oriented music. I wouldn't even have made it through the auditions for American Idol. [Laughs]

TV Guide: Are you an Idol fan?

Crow: I have not seen it. I don't really sit down and watch TV. I watch the evening news, NBC with Brian Williams, for 30 minutes, because it's just too much after a while and it desensitizes you. But on occasion I watch Grey's Anatomy.

TV Guide: What can you tell us about Detours, your new CD out in February?

Crow: The idea behind it is that throughout our lives we're taken on journeys that lead us away from who it is we see ourselves to be. But [often] those experiences will lead us back. In my personal life in the last three years, I've been on some journeys that have brought me to this point right here, where I'm a mom, I'm healthy, and I feel like I have much more insight.

TV Guide: You battled breast cancer in 2006. Did that contribute to the record at all?

Crow: It contributed to the way I look at my life now. I think those moments really dictate that you define or refine how it is that you want to live the rest of your life. It certainly did for me. It taught me about learning to say no and putting myself first.

TV Guide: How are you feeling now?
Crow: I'm doing great. I'm looking forward to playing new music, and having my son out on the road. He's already been [on tour] once, when he was like 4 weeks old. He slept most of the time, but he was great!

[INTERVIEW] WANTS TO DO MORE THAN JUST HAVE FUN

From Grammy awards to multi-platinum albums—Sheryl Crow has achieved them all. Since her 1993 debut, she's become one of the few female performers to earn a regular place in the charts, now she's turning to new media to promote her forthcoming album Detours. She took time out for a controversial chat with ARTISTdirect about personal challenges and political convictions.

This is your sixth studio release. What was driving you creatively this time around?

Well, that’s a three-hour conversation! The title is "Detours," and the idea behind that is I think that we—as people, but also as a as a social movement—we go on all these detours that take us away from who we really are. It’s really in the last six years, watching where we’ve gone as a nation until we are now perceived in the world as being out of touch. So, the album is politically driven, but it’s also personally driven. The detours that my life has taken over the last three years have brought me back to a place where I can remember who it is that I am and what I want to feel. Whether it’s having breast cancer, whether it’s having adopted my son—all of these things are defining and refining moments.

And you teamed up again with Bill Bottrell, who produced Tuesday Night Music Club?

Yes. This has actually been the most exciting record I’ve made since 1993, because I worked with Bill again. Both our lives have taken extreme journeys, so coming back together was really a sweet experience—an inspired experience. Where it’s rocking, it’s rocking, and where it’s truthful, it’s very intimate. It’s fully committed to whatever genre the song is written in, the lyrics are very honest. Having Wyatt in my life now really made me unable to edit myself—there was a real sense of urgency. It’s very, very forthright.

And I suppose all of those new experiences have given you new perspectives to bring to your song-writing.

Absolutely. I feel like it’s a very compelling time to be an artist. Because we’re seeing such a switch to people not feeling like they need to pay for music—or movies or art, whatever’s available on the internet—it’s even more compelling to write the truth and go out so people will find it, because it’s not going to get played on the radio. Nobody’s really out there talking about what’s going on. I feel there’s a great need for this conversation—the kind of conversation that’s going on with me and my friends.

The switch you talk about away from traditional venues for music exposure and towards downloading—how has that been affecting your career?

Well, the reason we’re promoting this now is that it is like the Wild West out there. It’s not the old days where you’d put a single out and if people liked it, they bought the record. Now, it’s a completely different road that you take, and I’m really excited about the fact that we’re not even leaking these songs, we’re just putting them out there for people to hear before the record comes out next year. There are four songs going out with videos on YouTube and it’s a great way for people to hear what the record’s about. And along with that, I feel like there’s a great dialogue to be had because hopefully these songs are thought-provoking.

You’re career has spanned such a period of change in the industry. As an artist, what are some of the biggest challenges you’ve faced?

It is completely different. For one thing, anyone can make a record now. If you have a computer and ProTools, you can do it at home without the cost, and anyone can make a video and stick it on YouTube and six million people may see it. And that’s compounded by the fact you can download a record and not pay for it, so it’s harder for people who are trying to make a living. It’s tricky. There’s got to be a way for us to make our living as songwriters.

And that’s probably when touring and merchandise becomes so important…

Right, and touring is another issue as I get older. I have a little boy now, so there are all these things that will weigh. It’s always been different for the women I’ve talked to in the industry. Chrissie Hynde was so helpful to me when we talked about touring. It’s like you have your children, and then as a mom you stay home and raise them. Or, as a male rock star, you have your kids and then the mom stays home while you tour. I think that freedom gives them longevity in a way women don’t have.

So would you say that being a woman has presented extra challenges in your career?

I’ve never really thought about it in terms of male or female, I just know that as music is changing towards being an entertainment-orientated medium, I think it’s an even more compelling time to be an artist. We’ve got a war going on that nobody talks about—but there’s no demonstrating, or picketing. I think we’re just emotionally detached, and maybe that comes from having so much information from the internet, and 24-hour cable TV. We’ve gone to sleep. In my mind, there are people out there who want to hear lyrics that echo their concerns, and as we see the world changing, it would almost be ridiculous to have music that doesn’t relate. I think we’re going to see a shift—well, I’m hoping we’re going to see a shift towards that.

So have you personally become involved with any issues? I know that environmentalism has always been close to your heart.

Last Spring I went on the road with Laurie David (producer of An Inconvenient Truth) on a bio-diesel bus and went to college campuses. We talked about what they can do in their personal lives, and in future workplaces in an effort to go green. It was an interesting tour because the young people are very concerned, and feeling really ripped off by the state of the planet they’ve inherited. At the same time, there’s incredible ingenuity coming up with ways to live a green lifestyle. The campaign of fear we’ve been living through for the last seven years can make people feel powerless, and there’s so much misinformation out there. It’s easier just to tune out and get on with our shopping.

You seem optimistic that artists can start the debate, and contribute politically…

It’s such a strange and indefinable time right now for artists. You finish your record and then you have no idea what’s going to happen so far as people downloading or viewing. But for me on this record, it wasn’t so much about making a living as it being heard. Hopefully it is addressing what a lot of people are saying.

[NEWS] ADOPTED CHILD GIVES SHERYL SOMETHING TO CROW ABOUT

Pic 1: Sheryl and adoptive children; Pic 2: Sheryl and the Smith family. Credits: CBS

For Sheryl Crow, there's a big difference to her third time on a yearly special about adoption. She's now an adoptive parent herself.

The Grammy-winning singer-songwriter is readying for her first Christmas with seven-month-old Wyatt and also performing on the 9th Annual A Home for the Holidays Friday, December 21, on CBS. Initiated by the late Wendy's restaurant founder Dave Thomas - who was an adoptee - and the Children's Action Network, the programme offers true stories of youngsters and the families who took them in.

Fergie, Reba McEntire, James Blunt and Carole King also are scheduled to sing during the hour. Another returnee to the show, Rene Russo, is among the talents introducing the segments; George Lopez and NUMB3RS co-star, David Krumholtz, participate as well.

AIDS-afflicted children

"They've asked us for three songs each," Crow says of herself and the special's other music stars. "We send them the ones we'd like to do, and they approve them or not. Recently, I did a concert for Alicia Keys' foundation, which is about saving AIDS-afflicted children by getting medication to them; at the piano, we did an acoustic version of a song called I Shall Believe, and I think I might do that.

"I love this show," Crow says, "It's one of the most inspiring things. When there's so much depressing information and imagery, it's just nice to be part of something that is doing such amazing work in getting kids placed in homes."

The outlook is more personal than ever for Crow, having adopted her son in May. "Just knowing how deeply you can love a child, even if you didn't actually give birth yourself, the feeling cannot be any different to me. I'm such a softie when it comes to this stuff anyway, knowing how much a family means to the development and growth of a child, it's an honour for me to have an impact on the life of my own adopted boy."

With her societal concern also mirrored by her work for environmental causes, Crow reasons, "Everything right now is so interconnected. I try to narrow down my philanthropic work so that it has some sort of impact, but when it comes to children, it's difficult to say 'no' when there's some place you can actually be of some service."

On the professional front, the artist behind such hits as All I Wanna Do, Strong Enough and Soak Up the Sun is bracing for a big start to 2008. Crow's album, Detours, is set for release February 5, and its songs reflect recent milestones in her life, from her breast-cancer crisis in 2006 to the adoption.

Crow calls it "a really honest and truthful record. There's a song called Lullaby for Wyatt, and you can hear him chewing at the end of it. That's in the take we used, anyway. In the one we didn't use, which we did after that, he's screaming."

Adoptive mom

Touring will be a big part of promoting Detours, a prospect Crow finds "daunting, it's a lot bigger deal than it used to be. Now it requires a baby crib, someone to help me with him and less sleep. I'm looking forward to it, though. The music's good, and it's been a long time since we've played new music, so it's very exciting."

So is Crow's anticipation of her first Christmas as an adoptive mom. "I'm from a big family, and we're very, very close," she says, "so I'd imagine it's just going to be more and more fun every year."

AOL strikes again!

I don't believe that we should be restricted from viewing content simply because of the location where we live (in this case, outside of the US). After all, this is supposed to be the WORLD wide web, right?

That's what I call corporate myopia.

[MYSPACE] NEWS FROM TIM

Christmas time

Hi Everyone!
That time of year is upon us, and I hope you all are finding peace during the consumer storm of gift buying! I am in Los Angeles with the band and Sheryl, as we are taping a show called Home for the Holidays tonite. We have been busy the past couple of weeks rehearsing new material with a few new players-Mike Ellzondo on bass whom you might know has played on Sheryl's records before as well as being a great producer and writer in his own right! He's also a very nice fella....Percussion and background singers have been brought in as well, and while it's a larger group that we've had in the past, it seems to be working pretty well. Bill Botrell, who produced Sheryl's new record has been with us too, lending support to the process and overseeing the production of these TV performances lately. It's nice to get to know him as I'm the longest running member of the band, I'd never met Bill or heard about things from his perspective before, so this has been fun. It looks as though I will be playing mostly guitar now, and I look forward to that too. I hope that as next year unfolds I get to see many of you again and look forward to catching up!
Please take care during this time, I wish you all a happy holiday.

[TV] A&E BIOGRAPHY SPECIAL: SHERYL CROW

“Sheryl Crow”
Thursday, December 20 @ 10 pm ET

Rated: TVPG
Running Time: 60 Minutes
Genre: Documentary
Closed Captions: Yes

She's the new Revlon spokeswomen, Lance Armstrong's ex-girlfriend, and a nine-time Grammy-winning rock star. This portrait of Sheryl Crow follows her meteoric career from the time she first burst onto the rock scene with her album, "Tuesday Night Music Club," in 1993. In 2003, she met cycling great Lance Armstrong and the two became a high-profile couple. She also became involved in Lance's LiveStrong Foundation's fight against cancer. But ironically, days after they broke up, Crow was diagnosed with breast cancer. The disease is now in remission, and Crow, the new mother of an adopted baby boy, continues to draw big crowds for her performances.

[PICS] WHO WOULD SPEND ONE MORE DAY WITH?


Sheryl and Wyatt - Bette Midler's Annual Hulaween Gala

Oprah's new TV movie, "One More Day," has prompted the hottest stars to contemplate a very deep question. Last night at CNN Hero’s Awards, "Extra" asked several celebs: “If you could spend one more day with a person from your past, who would it be?”

Fresh off her three Grammy nominations, Mary J. Blige offerered a somber response. “My cousin. He died when he was 16," she revealed. "He was shot in the chest and I didn’t get a chance to se him. I was in London.”

But both Sheryl Crow and Tyra Banks stayed in the present.

“My son," Sheryl gushed about her little boy, Wyatt. "I’m just smitten with my 7-month old.”

Tyra said, “It would probably be my mom…And I’d be like, ‘No pity party, Mom. Let’s just laugh and giggle and eat a lot of barbeque.”

To the contrary, Glenn Close pulled a name from the past, saying, “Elizabeth the First.”

"30 Rock" star Tina Fey provided some comic relief by joking, “I would probably get as many people from my family in one place as possible and I would probably eat as much as possible. Would it be weird if I took a nap on my actual day?”

"One More Day" airs Sunday night on ABC.
