[NEWS] ON THE PERFORMANCE FOR THE DALAI LAMA...
"After Gordon's opening remarks, we were treated (and I mean really treated) to several songs by Sheryl Crow, the first being The Beatles Here Comes The Sun. Crow donated her time for today's event.
I've seen Crow a few times live and I'm beginning to believe that she is entirely under-rated. She blew me away. Lots of soul in her voice - you can't teach that to someone. I think you have to be entirely present to sing like that."

Fans raise thousands for celebrity's local cause
The annual Sheryl Crow Fan Forum Birthday Drive recently raised $14,000 for the Delta Children's Home, which is $3,610 more than the Forum raised during last year's drive.
The Birthday Drive began in 2001, and over the course of the years has given over $120,000 to Dunklin County's Delta Children's Home, located in Crow's hometown of Kennett, according to Gregg Dempsey, moderator of the Fan Forum.
Dempsey noted that the amount raised during this year's drive came as a surprise, but that he was grateful for everyone who was able to participate and help raise the large amount of funds.
The fundraiser begins each year on December 15 and ends on Crow's birthday, February 11.
The event is very important to the Delta Children's Home, which has been in operation in Kennett since 1966, because 8 to 10 percent of the organization's annual budget is accounted for through the Birthday Drive, according to 2010 Delta Children's Home Board President, Jason Scherer.
"We rely heavily on donations for our funds, and we are deeply appreciative that Sheryl's fans go to this length, to aid this much-needed service to our community" Scherer said.
The funds raised during the drive are used for the care of children who arrive at the Delta Children's Home, following removal from their own homes.
Baker noted that the Birthday Drive is solely operated by members of the Fan Forum.
Different gifts, which include CD's, pictures, and the Grand Prize, a Sheryl Crow Signature Gibson Acoustic Guitar, are all donated by the fans, according to Baker.
He added that Crow signs some of the items, including the guitar, and that the fans and others have the opportunity to win items by donating to the Delta Children's Home.
"The fans know Sheryl and her family have all been strong supporters of the Delta Children's Home," Baker said. "It is one of the most unique fundraising events I have ever seen. Sheryl's fans are just wonderful people." Baker said.
Donations come from several different countries around the world which include the United States, Italy, France, Canada, Taiwan, Japan, Belgium, Germany, Ireland, Sweden, Israel, Great Britain, and several South American countries.
The 2010 Grand Prize winner of the signed Gibson guitar is Mike Bellanca of Haslet, Texas.

[NEWS] FORTHCOMING ALBUM: SHERYL CROW SESSIONS - PART 2
Update from the session drummer Aaron Sterling:
"So the Sheryl Crow sessions went well. The last song we did was a ballad she wrote in the same vein of those classic Stevie Wonder ballads from his 70’s period. It was a great song and she killed it. Definitely a cool experience."
"Redemption is the subtext of the entire album, from the opening title-track to the concluding Hawaiian farewell "Aloha Oe", and never more so than on a devastating version of Sheryl Crow's "Redemption Day", where the dry husk of Cash's fading voice gets to reflect upon the darkness of souls, and the "train that's heading straight to heaven's gate"."
"Other tunes include Sheryl Crow's "Redemption Day."
Crow said Cash frequently called her on the phone to gain insights into the lyrics, an experience she described as one of the greatest of her life.
"If he was going to sing a song, it was going to be a part of his molecular makeup," she told Reuters. "He was going to deliver it as if he wrote it. The questions that he asked and his concern for whether I would like what he was doing, it was just really humbling."
"“There’s a train/ That’s heading straight/ To Heaven’s gate,” he sings on a sparsely ornamented version of Sheryl Crow’s Redemption Day, switching between images of human conflict and his own unshakeable faith."
"In songs such as Tom Paxton’s “Where I’m Bound” and especially Sheryl Crow’s “Redemption Day,” Cash amplifies his restlessness. The chug of Crow’s original is cut to a crawl, with earthly turmoil juxtaposed with what’s in store at “heaven’s gate.’
“Freedom … freedom … freedom,” Cash mutters as the song fades, as if removing unseen shackles."
"His version of Sheryl Crow's Redemption Day is mournful and elegiac, while its anti-war reflection on individual accountability is complemented by the peace anthem Last Night I Had The Strangest Dream, a song which was sung as the Berlin Wall was being dismantled."
"I doubt if Rubin was standing over him during the sessions going, “What about a single, John?”– but if any of Ain’t No Grave’s 10 tracks is going to follow ‘Hurt’ onto daytime radio, it’s his wonderfully evocative reading of Sheryl Crow’s ‘Redemption Day’.
“That’s the one Johnny brought in and loved,” Rubin reveals. “He said he’d give up all the other songs just to be able to do that one – it was his favourite, content-wise.”
Indeed you can hear the relish with which Cash delivers damning couplets like, “Come leaders, come you men of great/ Let us hear you pontificate/ Your many virtues laid to waste/ And we aren’t listening.”
It’s a reminder that long before Crazy Colored hair and bondage trousers, Johnny was one of the original anti-authoritarian punks."
"Like many of the best songs in the American series, Ain't No Grave's best track comes from an unlikely source. This time, it's Sheryl Crow's hard-hitting Redemption Day and it is bent and twisted out of shape as Cash takes a good song and makes it great."
Pop Life - Tampa Bay
"Redemption Day Sheryl Crow’s Dylanesque antiwar folker takes power-gulping politicos to task for their bloodied hands. The saintly chorus, however, is pure uplift, as Tench’s keyboards and Cash’s voice swell with forgiveness. "There is a train, that’s heading straight, to heaven’s gate." Amen."
Consequences of Sound
"Sheryl Crow’s “Redemption Day” follows with a similar air of urgency-that of a man who has a message to deliver and little time remaining to do so. Cash’s voice is grim and forboding, but alongside Tench’s organ during the choruses there seems to be the hope of some form of salvation as Cash sings, “There is a train that’s heading straight to Heaven’s gate.” In Cash’s hands, Crow’s politicized song about national redemption manages to speak more about personal redemption, and this type of metamorphosis is a ubiquitous quality of American VI. These “death bed” songs, regardless of their intended meaning or content, become deeply personal songs, imbued with whatever sentiment Cash’s voice manifests."
Lloyd Zeffler blog
"The highlights of the album come when Cash is able to open up and sing. Covers of Sheryl Crow’s “Redemption Day” and Kris Kristofferson’s “For the Good Times” are potent examples of giving Cash a space to sing, rather than run him through a litany of words. The story songs he used to do so proudly don’t have the same zing to them.
Through his entire career, Cash was able to spotlight the work of remarkable songwriters. He continued that tradition in his last few years, not by uncovering the unknown talents but by adding new dimensions to existing artists – Glenn Danzig and Trent Reznor, to name just two. Cash’s version of “Redemption Day” will inspire a new look at Sheryl Crow and the depth of songwriting she is capable of creating."
The John Delusion
"Redemption Day’ is a Cheryl Crow song. The light guitar and organ provide a vehicle for Cash’s voice to carry Sheryl Crow’s lyrics on, lyrics that feel so natural coming from Cash that it may as well have been his own song."
[NEWS] FIRST PHOTO: SHERYL CROW KISSES AND TELLS ON COUGAR TOWN (PEOPLE MAGAZINE)
Sheryl Crow has caught the acting bug — and getting to kiss a hunky TV star didn’t help! The singer is set to appear in a recurring role on Cougar Town, which stars her pal Courteney Cox, beginning in March.
“I play a woman named Sara in her 40s who’s a wine dealer,” Crow tells PEOPLE. “I don’t want to give too much away but there’s a little romance with Grayson (Josh Hopkins, pictured), who lives across the street from Jules, which is Courteney’s character. Jules and Grayson have always had a sort of unspoken thing for each other.”
Does that mean there will be a catfight over serial dater Grayson? “I don’t know if I can give it away,” Crow says with a laugh.
She did dish, however, on smooching Hopkins. “He’s a good kisser,” she says. “But it’s always weird kissing somebody when there are 3,000 people around.
”But Crow had a plan for getting over her nerves — rip it like a Band Aid! “The first day I walked in and I saw Josh and I said, ‘Okay, kiss me! Let’s get it over with.”
And so they did: “Yeah. I said let’s get it over with,” she says. “No surprises.”
Cougar Town airs Wednesdays (9:30 p.m. EST) on ABC. –Marisa Laudadio

From the blog of the session drummer Aaron Sterling:
I’m in the studio this week with Sheryl Crow. Today was the first day and the track we did sounds great. Doyle Bramhall and Justin Stanley are producing and the band is awesome. Chris Bruce, Paul Bryan, Doyle and the great Spooner Oldham on keys. And Sheryl is playing wurly and singing great. Here are a couple of drum shots. We’ve got two different sets up right now. Pretty cool.
You never cease to blow me away with your generosity. Everyone I know is being hit hard with this flailing economy and yet you guys manage to give and give and give. It is the best birthday gift I could ever receive. Thank you!!
I am so proud of my little community of Kennett and the work that the Delta Children's Home does. Thank you for adopting this wonderful cause as one of your own.

[CHARITY] 2010 HOLLYWOOD CHARITY HORSE SHOW - SHERYL CONFIRMED AS MUSICAL GUEST
For the past 20 years, William Shatner has spearheaded the HCHS to raise money for a worthy children’s charity.
It was back in the late 1980s that Shatner first watched an exhibition by children who were so severely handicapped that some of them could not hold their head up, yet there they were going through intricate exercises on the back of a horse. The program was sponsored by Ahead With Horses, a therapeutic riding group for handicapped children. When the exhibition was over, Shatner sat, deeply affected by what he had seen. "You can't watch these kids without knowing you have to help, somehow." And so, in March of 1990 came the birth of the first Hollywood Charity Horse Show. Soon, other charities in need of help were added, small, grass root charities doing big time jobs.
Today, the Hollywood Charity Horse Show is an ongoing event that garners national press coverage. On one special Springtime Saturday afternoon each year, HCHS brings together world-class reining horses and riders in breathtaking slides and spins as they compete for top honors in their respective classes. Then, as the sun sets, the much anticipated auction and music show put on by headline groups such as Brad Paisley, The Ben Folds Five, Lyle Lovett and Randy Travis, kick off right after an amazing array of food & fun. Come join us this May 1, 2010 for an uplifting and worthy event to support an important cause. This year's musical guest is Willie Nelson.

LONG BEACH - Director James Cameron, singer Sheryl Crow, Microsoft co-founder Bill Gates and former CIA covert operations officer Valerie Plame Wilson are among the more than 40 speakers and musicians coming to Long Beach this week for the annual invitation-only TED Conference at the Long Beach Convention Center.
TED - which stands for Technology, Entertainment, Design - brings together 1,500 of the most creative and scientific minds to Long Beach, which is hosting the event for the second consecutive year, from Wednesday to Saturday. Organizers moved the event here last year after it outgrew its venue of 24 years, Monterey.
"Once again, it brings world-class luminaries, leaders and thinkers from a variety of walks of life and disciplines to Long Beach," said Steve
Goodling, president and CEO of the Long Beach Area Convention and Visitors Bureau, adding that hotels are full.
Themed "What the World Needs Now," this year's conference features a diversity of speakers ranging from anti-
slavery activist Kevin Bales to spider silk scientist Cheryl Hayashi.
And what the world needs now is something of a rethink, said TED Curator Chris Anderson.
"Whether it's climate change, health care, or the sputtering global economy, you can't miss the sense of frustration and malaise," he said. "Public policy stumbles forward, ever more compromised and complicated, but there seems little to celebrate.
"At TED2010, we expect a different kind of conversation. We've lined up a spectacular group of speakers with the ideas to help us break out of this toxic tangle, ideas that are insightful, provocative, mold-
breaking and inspiring. In the long run they can make a significant difference to our shared future."
On Wednesday, celebrity chef Jamie Oliver will be presented with the 2010 TED Prize, a $100,000 award to be used by the recipient to make real his "one wish to change the world."
Oliver has been involved in various projects, including a campaign to improve nutrition at schools that prompted the UK government to invest $1 billion to overhaul lunches. He has also spoken on health-related issues, such as obesity and diabetes, and founded Fifteen Foundation, which helps disadvantaged 18- to 24-year-olds learn to work and lead in the restaurant industry.
Also speaking at TED is Long Beach native Chip Conley, founder and CEO of Joie de Vivre Hospitality, a boutique hotel company with lodgings in Northern and Southern California, including Hotel Maya, Long Beach's newest waterfront lodging.
Conley, a first-time TED speaker, will discuss "why it's important that business and political leaders focus more on the intangibles of life, like happiness, to manage their operations," he said.
Conley said he is especially excited to hear speeches by Gates and creativity expert Sir Ken Robinson.
"It's people who are coming together and spreading really interesting new ideas about how the world can work in many different ways, and I think it's fascinating that they've chosen Long Beach to be the place," Conley said, adding that TED puts Long Beach on the map.
Goodling would not discuss the length of TED's contract in Long Beach, but did say that TED "has committed for several years."
"We're absolutely thrilled to have that privilege, but like any relationship we know that we must continue to earn it," he said. "And all of us - the hotels and the city - have worked very hard to respond to the TED organizers and the needs of their members."
One example of something suggested by TED guests was installing more lighting along Ocean Boulevard to create a safer walk from the Convention Center to the Hilton, Goodling said.
"Not only will this benefit TED and all the attendees but it will benefit all of our groups and visitors and residents in the downtown area," he said.
