I totally agree! As well as for the Soundstage concert... nice set list, good singing and playing, but Sheryl seemed distant, mechanical, like she was going through the motions. And the crowd sucked.

NEWS - "Easy" on Jimmy Kimmel Live! (Taste of Country)

by Amy Sciarretto
Taste of Country

Sheryl Crow has partnered with Warner Music Nashville to release her debut country album and she gave fans a taste of her first country single ‘Easy’ from that forthcoming album on ‘Jimmy Kimmel Live!’ Thursday night (Jan. 24.)

Actor Matt Damon had commandeered the show from Kimmel, who was bound and gagged while Damon brought out A-list guest after A-list guest as part of the long-running gimmick between the two over who reigns supreme. Damon asked Crow, who also served as the band leader for the night, if she would be so kind as to debut a new song for him. She joked that she wouldn’t normally do that, but since it was Damon who was asking, she would oblige. So Crow was in on the joke, as well.

It was the first taste of new material from the singer in two years. So, was it worth the wait? And more importantly, how did it stack up as a country track?

Well, it’s a twangy, acoustic-guitar driven, semi-ballad that’s not much different than Crow’s more recent material, which has had a bit of a country bend to it. The song certainly “feels” country and Crow’s storytelling ability fits the genre like the glove. It’s a catchy track, too. Debuting it on late night TV certainly made us want to hear more.

In other Crow news, she is further cementing herself in the country genre with a performance at the much-anticipated annual Taste of Country show in Buffalo on June 14. Darius Rucker, Rodney Atkins, Jana Kramer and more will join her. Tickets are on sale Jan. 25.

NEWS - "Easy" on Jimmy Kimmel Live! (American Songwriter)

by Jim Beviglia
American Songwriter

Appearing on Jimmy Kimmel Live! last night, Sheryl Crow debuted the first song off her upcoming album with new record label, Warner Music Nashville. The new album is rumored to be a country record through and through, but the song she played last night, “Easy,” certainly wouldn’t have sounded out of place on some of Crow’s earlier releases.

The few concessions to a more overtly country sound, such as the pedal steel accents and the way the final chorus starts by dropping much of the music away before rising back up for the big finish, are more cosmetic changes than anything else. Crow’s still maintains a laid-back vibe and her ability to make songs that are going to sound fine coming out of the car radio.

“Easy” is a simple enough ode to spending time at home with the one you love rather than splurging on some exotic locale. Crow makes it sound pretty inviting when she sings, “We’ll put on bug spray and we’ll lose our clothes/Put out the lawn chair and turn on the hose.” “Who needs Mexico?” she sings. “Baby, let’s stay home.”

Those expecting drastic changes may not see the big deal here. Maybe the rest of the album will dial up the twang to another level, but “Easy” sounds like Sheryl Crow absolutely in a comfort zone, and that’s always a good thing.

NEWS/VIDEO - Blake Shelton & Sheryl Crow Trash Talk 'The Voice' Competition

 

It appears that Team Blake's new mentor, Sheryl Crow, will fit in very nicely on The Voice come March 25.

Yep, viewers will get twice the trash talking with Sheryl on board, and when ET visited with the dynamic duo as they prepared for season four, the sassy singer wasn't afraid to rip on one of Blake's favorite targets.

When asked whom she had initially wanted to pair up with this season, Sheryl made it clear there was only one person on her mind.

"Adam {Levine] asked me to mentor," reveals Sheryl, "but I wanted to be on the winning team."

Appreciatively, Blake cheered, "That's my girl!"

Fresh from two consecutive wins (season 2 and 3), the country star has good reason to be cocky. Despite the loss of judges Christina Aguilera and Cee Lo Green this season, Blake feels that newcomers Shakira and Usher should know their place right off the bat.

"I think the other coaches know that their place in this relationship is they're the losers, I'm the winner," asserts Blake. "'Losers' is the word I said about Christina, Cee Lo, Adam, and now Usher and Shakira, 'losers' is the word. I'm the winner."

Watch the video for more! And don't miss The Voice season four premiere March 25 on NBC.

NEWS - Musical Diner Delays Broadway Opening Until the Fall

By Andrew Gans
and Kenneth Jones
06 Jan 2013

The new Sheryl Crow-Barry Levinson musical Diner, which is based on the movie of the same name and had been scheduled to open on Broadway April 10, has been delayed until the fall, according to The New York Times.

The delay will allow producers a chance to recruit additional investors for the musical, which will cost $9.5 million to mount on Broadway. The extra time will also allow librettist Barry Levinson a chance to sharpen his script, which is based on his screenplay for the film.

Producer Scott Zeiger told the Times, "Everyone just feels it needs more work to be better, and we want it to be the best...We wanted to do the creative work without a spring opening being a gun to our heads. And we want to raise all the money, so we can open on Broadway without worrying about making budget and having reserve funds if ticket sales are slow at first."

Producer Zeiger also said that a developmental workshop in October was affected by Hurricane Sandy; fewer investors joined the producing team at that time than had been hoped.

The musical about pals who gather at a Baltimore diner in 1959 is being directed and choreographed by three-time Tony Award winner Kathleen Marshall (Wonderful Town, The Pajama Game, Anything Goes).

Diner, based on Levinson's 1982 film, is set in Baltimore, 1959, when six high school friends reunite at the one place they know they'll always belong: the Diner. "Now in their twenties, the friends have stumbled into adulthood and struggle to keep from growing apart," according to production notes. "Life, love, responsibility — it's all on the table."

Crow, who is composing the musical's score, is a nine-time Grammy Award-winning singer-songwriter.

The production team includes scenic designer Derek McLane, lighting designer Peter Kaczorowski and sound designer Scott Lehrer with orchestrations and music direction by Mitchell Froom.

Academy Award winner Levinson received an Oscar nomination for his original screenplay for "Diner," which was his film directing debut. The rueful film comedy starred Kevin Bacon, Ellen Barkin, Tim Daly, Steve Guttenberg, Paul Reiser, Mickey Rourke and Daniel Stern.

BLAST FROM THE PAST - "I Would Do Anything" by Kenny Loggins and Sheryl Crow
