[INTERVIEW] Guardian (UK newspaper) - 11 Feb.
The Guardian, Tuesday 11 February 2014 17.53 GMT
Sheryl Crow, musician
Singer-songwriter Sheryl Crow talks about doing a jingle for McDonald's, throwing herself into country music – and sacrificing her love life for her career
What are your earliest memories of music?
My mom and dad were in a swing band. My earliest, most vivid memories are of them coming home with their friends and playing records – Stan Getz, Stan Kenton, Ella Fitzgerald – and me and my sisters sleeping out on the stairs so we could hear them.
What was your big breakthrough?
I've had two. The first was singing a jingle for McDonald's while I was teaching in Missouri. It took 45 minutes, but I made more money than I had in two years of teaching. The second was landing the backup singer gig for Michael Jackson in 1987.
What have you sacrificed for your art?
My love life (1). I think whatever you give your attention to is what thrives.
Your new album is being called your "country music debut" (2). Does country deserve a wider UK audience?
Sure. I've always loved country. My earliest influences were the Rolling Stones doing country – Exile on Main St, Let It Bleed – and Emmylou Harris, Gram Parsons, the Flying Burrito Brothers. All tTo me, that music was the landscape of growing up in America. Today, country music is really the only place left where conventional songwriting – verse, chorus, bridge, middle eight – still exists. Making this record felt like the old days again.
What are you most proud of?
The fact that I'm still excited about making music. And Diner, the Broadway musical I've just finished with Barry Levinson (3).
How has the position of women in music changed in the course of your career?
Very little. When I made my second record (4), no women were producing their records. I wound up producing it by default because my producer left after one day. By the grace of God, that record did well, and opened doors for women. But I still see very few women in the highest positions at record labels. And very few women programme radio playlists. It's pretty depressing.
What work of art would you like to own?
Anything by Andrew Wyeth (5). His paintings are so plaintive: they have a lot of yearning, a lot of vulnerability.
What advice would you give a young musician?
School yourself. Kids can become famous so quickly now. But for longevity's sake, learn your craft.
Is there an art form you don't relate to?
I love the art of ordering food – but not so much the art of cooking it.
Is there anything about your career you regret?
I can't dip my toe into the pool of regret – it's just too easy to drown in it. But I guess if I could go back and do it again, I'd be more adventurous, and worry less about what people thought.
What's the worst thing anyone ever said about you?
People say all the time that I can't sing. It's one of the reasons I don't read blogs.
How would you like to be remembered?
As somebody who had integrity and wrote music that mattered.
Born: Kennett, Missouri, 1962
Career: Has released nine albums and contributed to several soundtracks; her new LP, Feels Like Home, is out now.
Low point: "I've had to wait a lot of tables to get where I am."
High point: "Performing with the Rolling Stones."
(1) Crow has been linked with several famous men, including actor Owen Wilson and cyclist Lance Armstrong, to whom she was briefly engaged before they separated in 2006. Back to article
(2) Crow's music has always had a country twang, but this is her first album for Warner Music Nashville.
(3) Crow wrote the music and lyrics for this stage adaptation of Levinson's 1982 film.
(4) The 1996 album Sheryl Crow included Everyday is a Winding Road, which went platinum on both sides of the Atlantic.
(5) The late American realist is best known for his paintings of the landscapes of Pennsylvania and Maine.
