CROW ROCKS IN NEW "GOT MILK" ADS

SHERYL CROW is showing off her raunchy rocker side in new US 'Got milk?' ads. The singer/songwriter, who is engaged to cyclist LANCE ARMSTRONG, sports a 'milk moustache,' ripped jeans, cowboy boots and a revealing black bustier in the new print ads for the National Dairy Council campaign. Crow, who poses in a trashy motel room - holding her guitar case and a glass milk, in the ad jumped at the chance to become the latest `Got Milk?' celebrity because she uses dairy as part of her healthy diet.

She says, "I like being healthy and I like feeling fit. It makes for a more exhilarating day."

My dear, sure that drinks milk! I have an incontrovertible proof:

[WILDFLOWER] NASHVILLE SCENE REVIEW

The Concrete Garden
Sheryl Crow chooses literal-minded maturity over having some fun

by Chris Neal

Sheryl Crow
Wildflower (A&M)

Appearing Jan. 29 and 30 at Ryman Auditorium

John Lennon’s “Give Peace a Chance” became an anthem for decades’ worth of antiwar movements around the world. But between the sing-along choruses, he mused on “sinister banisters and canisters, bishops, fishops, rabbis and Popeyes.”

R.E.M.’s “It’s the End of the World as We Know It (and I Feel Fine)” summed up Reagan-era hopelessness in the face of seemingly eminent nuclear war, but Michael Stipe also let us know that “the other night I tripped a nice continental drift divide / Mountains sit in a line.”

Nirvana’s “Smells Like Teen Spirit” expressed the shrug of a disaffected generation: “Here we are now, entertain us.” Of course, there was also “a mulatto, an albino, a mosquito, my libido” with which to contend.

Pop music always has trafficked in nonsense given meaning by context, in meaninglessness smuggled in along with meaningfulness (and vice versa). It’s a madness not without method: a megaphoned sentiment is deepened, refracted and refreshed when surrounded by surrealistic images that go by quickly enough to escape notice for several listens (or several hundred).

For the last decade-and-a-half, this notion has been the central pillar upon which Sheryl Crow’s pop career has rested. Her breakthrough hit, “All I Wanna Do,” boasted a chorus straight from the teen-pop handbook: “All I wanna do is have some fun / I’ve got a feeling I’m not the only one.” But the verses microscoped in on the tiny details of an afternoon barroom scene, down to the labels on the beer bottle; with each chorus, Crow threw off the weight of the mounting details, giving the song its sense of propulsion.

But it was with her second (and still best) album, 1996’s Sheryl Crow, that she truly climbed the dizzying heights of pure pop surrealism. Singles “If It Makes You Happy,” “A Change Would Do You Good” and “Everyday Is a Winding Road” all reached the Top 5 of one radio chart or another, and all were sterling examples of inspired nonsense whose choruses suddenly exploded them into meaning. I’ve spent the last decade wondering about the significance of finding “Benny Goodman’s corset and pen,” or why she’s “calling Buddy on the Ouija board”—and hitting play again to try to figure it out.

Subsequent Crow singles regularly followed the same blueprint, from “There Goes the Neighborhood” to “Soak Up the Sun,” but the frequency of these flights of fancy has slowed. One reason for that is purely musical: Crow has always kept her ballads grounded lyrically, knowing that the rush of lysergic mental pictures embedded in, say, “A Change Would Do You Good,” might sound purposely obscurantist or even unintentionally funny at half-speed. As Crow’s singles have leaned toward the balladic, so it follows that she no longer hitches a ride with the vending-machine repairman or sneaks a line like “Jack off Jimmy, everybody wants more” onto the airwaves.

Another reason may simply be maturity. As Crow has eased into her 40s (despite continuing to look 27) and into a very public courtship with champion bicyclist Lance Armstrong, she has turned her attention to matters of the heart with greater seriousness and purpose in her music. That impulse reaches full bloom on Wildflower, an album of surpassing loveliness that, lacking the immediate, infectious hooks of the past, takes its sweet time to settle under the skin.

Wildflower has been dismissed by some critics as the inevitable mellowing of a confessed depressive who’s now happy in love, and it does have a bit of a glow about it—but it’s more in the soft insistence of David Campbell’s string arrangements and the gentle thrumming of the acoustic guitars than in Crow’s words. The melodies crafted by Crow and frequent co-writer Jeff Trott (who also plays guitar and co-produces several tracks) spiral up and drift back down on their way in and out of minor-key melancholy, as the singer wrestles with the questions inevitably raised by a new relationship.

On Wildflower, each moment of acceptance comes with a moment of doubt tagging behind it; the singer can’t push over the walls she has erected around herself, so she carefully unbricks them, only to pull out the trowel and erect them again. The old melancholy isn’t gone by any means; it’s just couched in gentler music. In the liner notes, Crow thanks Elton John “for his great inspiration,” and “Always on Your Side” lifts a snatch of “Someone Saved My Life Tonight.” But in “Someone,” John’s lyricist Bernie Taupin wrote about escaping a confining engagement, while in “Always,” Crow is the one being fled: “Butterflies are free to fly, and so they fly away / And I’m left to carry on and wonder why.”

Without such revealing turns of phrase, several of Wildflower’s tracks must get by on dark sonic beauty alone. Campbell’s strings adorn all the tracks save one, creating a lush, dreamy landscape that’s so inviting that sometimes it takes a while to notice that Crow is saying nothing terribly profound. When she ponders that “Good is good and bad is bad” or drops a clunker like “I heard the sound, it was all around” or “Everything I know makes me feel so low,” the lines are sung so sweetly and cloaked in such warmth that it hardly seems to matter—at least, not while they’re playing. But thoughtful ballads like “Home” and “Strong Enough” (from Sheryl Crow and Tuesday Night Music Club, respectively) had the depth and nuance to hold up in the memory as well.

The one track that could have been lifted wholesale from Sheryl Crow is the punchy, uncharacteristically up-tempo “Live It Up.” The chorus goes no deeper than the title, but the verses are set in a classic Crowian netherworld where Jesus is a hijacker who works at the pawnshop and “self-conscious” rhymes with “haunches.” But “Live It Up” already seems like a relic, a last-minute sowing of wild oats, a bachelorette party.

The party may be over, but perhaps the morning after can be brighter. If Crow can figure out a way to address the concrete changes in her life with the kind of engaging abstraction she used to apply to winding roads and favorite mistakes, the seeds on Wildflower could grow into something remarkable.


[CONCERT REVIEW] CROW MIXES FEEL-GOOD ANTHEMS, SERIOUS FARE

Singer connects, shows a contemplative side
By DAVE TIANEN
dtianen@journalsentinel.com
Posted: Jan. 27, 2006

When Sheryl Crow played Summerfest a few years back, she seemed somehow smaller than life.

There was a sense that her apprenticeship as a backup singer for Michael Jackson and Don Henley hadn't prepared her to take the spotlight on her own.

But a decade plus as a major artist has wrought some changes. The woman who took the stage of a sold-out Riverside Theater on Friday night has matured into a poised, confident, relaxed performer. If she is not quite a force of nature in the same way Tina Turner is, she is nonetheless a polished pro who has learned how to connect with an audience on her own terms.

Of course, it doesn't hurt that those first few albums are chock full of feel-good, dance-friendly anthems that are ready made to seduce a theater crowd into a fun night. Most of them showed up in the set list Friday: "All I Wanna Do," "Soak Up the Sun," "A Change Would Do You Good," "If It Makes You Happy," "Everyday Is a Winding Road," and "My Favorite Mistake" among them.

But Crow also has a new album. While not exactly downbeat, "Wildflower" is a more contemplative, even serious record. She introduced "Where Has All the Love Gone" as her anti-war song, and the lyrics make it pretty clear she feels her nation has gone astray. "Letter to God" is what the title implies, a kind of prayer in song, but a prayer that acknowledges doubts and fears.

"Letter to God" is not exactly party fodder, and Crow obviously knows it. After the song, she turned to the crowd for reassurance, asking, "You don't mind a song about God, do you?"

Although she writes most of her own stuff, two of Friday's best moments came on cover material. Her version of "The First Cut Is the Deepest" holds up well against Rod Stewart's homey reading, and her take on Dylan's "Mississippi" has a nice down-home feel worthy of a girl from Kennett, Mo. For this tour, Crow is lugging along a full string section, but the strings proved to be a good investment, lending an Appalachian aura of rustic beauty.

Crow now has the confidence and poise to tell a joke on herself. It turns out that Dylan had sent Crow "Mississippi" before recording it himself on "Love and Theft." When Crow finally had the chance to meet the Bard of Hibbing, she was anxious to hear how he liked what she'd done.

She recounted their exchange like this:

"Bob, did you hear my version of the song?"

"Yeah."

"Well, did you like it?"

A bit of a pause, then. . . "How'd you like my version?"

[WILDFLOWER] UMC REVIEW

By Steve Morley

Sound/Style: Experimental and largely low-key pop/rock in a reflective vein

In a culture abuzz with personal details of such paparazzi prey as Britney Spears and Jessica Simpson, Sheryl Crow is the real item—a credible musician and writer who can rest on the strength of her multi-hit-spawning albums, all without catering to the glare of the popular media. It’s ironic then that she’s increasingly becoming tabloid fodder as a result of her well-publicized romance with cyclist Lance Armstrong. Wildflower, her first full-length release in three years, is affectionately dedicated to Armstrong, but rumormongers will find precious little on the disc to fuel the fires of celebrity gossip. Not only are the songwriter’s lyrics here as elusive as ever, they contain the cloudy ambivalence of an artist whose sprouting optimism doesn’t obscure the thornier issues of life and love.

After repeatedly demonstrating her knack for off-kilter yet highly commercial pop and rock, Crow explores a more introspective, poetry-like style here. Her varied and sometimes easily identified influences—largely drawn from ‘70s rock as well as from her broad musical upbringing—are becoming less distinguishable than before. While she retains plenty of rich melody and classic pop/rock vibe, she’s coloring outside the lines more freely. On tracks like “Perfect Lie” and the Neil Finn-like “Lifetimes,” verse and chorus sections blur together, with no clear focal point to aid those listeners in search of a central meaning. These numbers, which tend to be typical of the entire record, can nonetheless be enjoyed as excursions to an undisclosed destination, during which you need only trust the driver and enjoy the scenery, which is abundant here.

As on previous Crow outings, her vocals are upfront and unadorned and the production is crisp and colorful, though Wildflower trades the guitar-heavy rock of 2002’s “C’mon C’mon” for slightly more organic textures, featuring orchestral backing on ten of the eleven tracks. (The sole exception is the radio friendly “Live It Up,” one of few edgy offerings on the otherwise low-key collection). A loping banjo elicits a vintage Neil Young feel on “I Know Why,” and exotic Indian percussion samples create a jasmine-scented mystique on “Chances Are,” a song detailing present-day uncertainty, vague belief systems and the crossed-fingers-and-closed-eyes response of the status quo: “Terror runs for King, I said/ It is better to explore within/ We were apes before we spoke of sin/ The cosmos sits on the tip of a pin/ We’ll all drive by with our hybrid lives/ Chances are we’ll make it back.”

Crow’s George Harrison-inspired recording “Light in Your Eyes” (available only on 2003’s The Very Best of Sheryl Crow) suggested a turn toward open and optimistic spirituality with its soaring slide guitar, buoyant chorus and its invitation to “Talk to the one who made you, talk to the one who understands.” However, nothing on the new album quite revisits that upbeat approach. “Letter to God” addresses spiritual quandaries that, while not irreverent, are unflinchingly blunt. The song’s protagonist—ostensibly the singer herself—perhaps seeks to penetrate the surface of organized religion when she says “You gave me some words to go on/ Told me I was saved/ But you never said what from.” Evidently unsatisfied with pat answers, she asks “What do you do when you look to the left and the right/ And find no clue?/ Well, I’m sending a letter to God/ How will it be when I’m gone?/ And what if everyone is wrong?”

With a liberal dose of interpretation, one can imagine our Creator’s gracious reply to her confusion in the chorus of “Lifetimes,” which might also hint at the vast elasticity of time from God’s eternal point of view: “We could live lifetimes in a single day/ No matter what you do, I love you anyway/ You say you feel lost inside, well, I get lonely too/ Even in the worst of times, I give my best to you.” Likewise, Wildflower acknowledges darkness but presents the best Crow has to offer, even if that amounts to only a tentative ray of hope.

CROW'S FEATS CONTINUE TO SELL OUT SHOWS

Tunes & Tix column by Tim Shellberg

BY TIM SHELLBERG
Times Correspondent

From Missouri music teacher to Jacko backup singer to Grammy regular to the future Mrs. Lance Armstrong, Sheryl Crow's story, at least up to now, is the right stuff for an A&E "Biography," if it hasn't been done already. A mainstream regular now for a dozen years, Crow is a rarity in the popular music world these days, especially one not caught up in the high-gloss MTV world, in that she has simply been able to stay in the forefront of the music-buying periscope this long, and well at that. As accessible as they come and always radio-friendly, Crow is as welcome with the Lilith likes as she is sharing the stage with the Stones.

But despite the multiplatinum albums, sold-out venues on all corners of the globe, and oodles of awards, Crow will never be hailed for her pure musical authenticity. Her '94 breakthrough hit, "All I Wanna Do," is a carbon of Stealer Wheel's '70s AM staple "Stuck in the Middle." She paid tribute to her Stones chums two years later with "If It Makes You Happy," and her 1998 set, "The Globe Sessions," reeks of influence by everyone from Aimee Mann (who's in town to play to a full house Wednesday at Chicago's Vic Theatre) with "My Favorite Mistake" and "Anything but Down" to a near-plagiarizing rendition of Concrete Blonde's "Joey" with "Members Only." With that in mind, Crow need not rush to record an all-covers album in the near future; she's been doing it quite well here and there for more than a decade now.

SHERYL CROW CONTINUES TO BLAZE HER OWN PATH

We'll talk to you later,
Jeff Jolley
Rational Alternative

The singer, who plays the Fox on Thursday, continues to evolve, keeping her audiences captivated

'Tell me why the road keeps turning, when everything you want is straight ahead." So emotes rock maven Sheryl Crow on the opening track to her latest album, "Wildflower." The line functions as an easy metaphor for the singer/songwriter's long, committed ascent into the realms of multi-platinum rock stardom.

And while fans may suspect "Wildflower," inspired by Crow's romance and pending marriage to Tour de France champion cyclist Lance Armstrong, 34, to be brimming with joy, it's actually a contemplative affair. As is her trademark, Sheryl Crow is doing it her way.

On Thursday, Crow will roll into Detroit's Fox Theatre in support of the new album. At 43, the Missouri native has come a long way from her days of cover bands and backing gigs (the most notable of which was a stint on Michael Jackson's "Bad" tour). But it is the singer's ability to transcend fashion that has kept her a viable contender in a supremely fickle industry.

"She's always growing and changing," says Jason Fine, an associate editor at Rolling Stone from the magazine's New York City offices. "You certainly can see her striving to do something new. With this record, she's trying to move in another direction and grow -- and that's what keeps her fans riveted. They're growing up with her."

In September, Crow told the Associated Press that most of the latest "songs are based on conversations Lance and I would have about religion and Terry Schiavo and about our government, and how we felt about the kind of world we felt we were leaving his (three) children." And while these weighty issues occupy much of "Wildflower's" essence, Crow sited the bloom of love as the catalyst. "I think it's one of the only things that has really been missing from my life," the singer says. "It was a very necessary experience for me."

Her 1993 breakthrough album, "Tuesday Night Music Club," inspired by a collective of Los Angeles industry peers who gathered weekly to write songs, established Crow as a major force in the mid-'90s, scoring multiple Grammys and big-ticket record sales. After the club's success, Crow found herself a welcome guest in rock's most elite camps. The Rolling Stones, Eric Clapton (with whom the singer allegedly had a romantic involvement) and Stevie Nicks all embraced the star, whose music bore more than a passing resemblance to their own.

"I think she's been very clear about following her own role models like Neil Young and George Harrison," says Fine, "so, in that sense, she's following in the footsteps of the stars from another era that she idolizes rather than trying to make pop hits that connect with 18-year-olds."

Which is not to say that she's not in touch with contemporary audiences. Her 2001 duet with Kid Rock, "Picture," became one of the biggest hits of her career.

"She's one of our core artists," says Jesse Addy, afternoon DJ on Detroit radio station WDVD-FM (96.3). "She came onto the scene when pop music had become open to artists that could play instruments and sing songs about real experiences. She sort of defined her own rules after that."

Anna Gersh, co-founder of DWOT Productions, which produces an Women's History Month event every March in Ann Arbor, says it's Crow's lack of pretense that makes her a credible artist and, additionally, a good role model.

"She's a mature, smart woman and a competent player as well as a vocalist," says Gersh. "She continues to evolve musically and doesn't seem to be swayed by porno culture. I don't expect we'll be seeing Sheryl Crow doing a video where she's dancing around a pole."

For Crow, it's about the work.

"A lot of people get into (the industry) because they want to be seen, but, for me, I wanted to be so great. I wanted to matter," she has said. "I know that nothing I do is ever going to be perfect, but I still have the exciting feeling that my best work is ahead of me. And I feel that way about my life."

CROW'S DOG DILEMMA

Rocker SHERYL CROW is considering leaving new pet Labrador behind when she tours this year (06), because she fears the pooch will devour her designer shoe collection. The singer worries she'll have to take to the stage barefooted if her new dog REX joins her on tour. It's a big dilemma for Crow - because her late Labrador always accompanied her when she toured. She says, "I used to bring my yellow Labrador with me, but he passed away... He went on tour and every tour bus.

"(But) Rex is prone to eat anything, so I don't know if he's going to make this tour. I have too many nice shoes."

[E-MAIL] DOMANDA TECNICA, RISPOSTA TECNICA

Un ingegnere del suono mi chiede in e-mail quali periferiche sono state usate per registrare la voce di Sheryl in Tuesday Night Music Club, nella fattispecie con i brani "Solidify" e "Leaving Las Vegas". Dunque caro lettore, secondo gli appunti presi da un intervista di Mix Magazine del '95, Bottrell (il sound engineer nonche' produttore di Sheryl per TNMC) ha usato un vecchio microfono a valvole AKG C12, collegato ad un preamplificatore microfonico Massenburg (non specifica il modello, sorry) a sua volta linkato ad un compressore DB160X e al DAT recorder.

ARMSTRONG IN TALKS ABOUT MOVIE ON HIS LIFE

America's seven-time Tour de France champion Lance Armstrong has told a South African newspaper that he is in talks on a movie about his life.

Armstrong, 34, is due to travel to South Africa on Wednesday along with fiancee Sheryl Crow for a visit that will include a tour of Soweto, the township that was the centre of anti-apartheid resistance.

In an interview to the Sunday Times Armstrong said that Matt Damon was favoured to play him in the movie.

"Matt's somebody I've known for a few years and is willing to play the part," Armstrong said. "He can dig into it on the athletic side and the illness side, but he'll also look and ride and feel like a professional cyclist."

"This is a great lineup with something for everyone, from classic country to classic rock & roll and a lot of pop that is popular right now," Houston Livestock Show & Rodeo president Skip Wagner said.

What Lance Armstrong's lawyer told him about persistent French rumours of doping:

Enjoy your millions. Who cares about France. And don't expect a lot a sympathy for a guy who parks his bike in Sheryl Crow's rack.'

Sheryl Crow Unplugs and Gallops Into TRAIL MIX Exclusively on Animal Planet

Two-Hour, Hi-Def Special Highlights Some of Today's Hottest Musicians and the Special Bond They Share With Their Horses

SILVER SPRING, Md., Jan. 4 /PRNewswire/ -- Rock siren Sheryl Crow joins the star-studded lineup for Animal Planet's TRAIL MIX, a two-hour special premiering Sunday, January 29, 2006, from 8-10 PM (ET/PT). Shot in high definition, TRAIL MIX highlights the special bond between some of the music industry's hottest acts and their horses. Hosted by recording artist and Broadway sensation Linda Eder, the program will feature an eclectic mix of artists from rock stars to pop singers to opera virtuosos, all of whom share a love of horses.

Nine-time Grammy award winner singer/songwriter Crow will give audiences a peek into the special relationship she has with her four horses. On location in Austin, Texas, Crow reveals a rarely seen side as she shares her passion, explains how horses inspire her art and shares her most compelling stories about the horses she loves.

"It's like being a musical performer, in that you go out on stage, you play music and you hope that what you're gonna get back is reciprocal. And it's the same with a horse. You know, they want that relationship with you just like you want that relationship with them, that union, that bond," said Crow while filming the special.

Crow joins a kaleidoscope of today's hottest musicians: former Matchbox Twenty front man and solo artist Rob Thomas; two-time Grammy winner and crossover country music sensation LeAnn Rimes; solo recording artist and legendary lead guitarist of the rock super band Aerosmith, Joe Perry; Grammy- winning singer/songwriter Mary Chapin Carpenter; and world-renowned Irish tenor Ronan Tyan.
