"Saw Sheryl Crow tonight at chateau st michelle winery. I've never been there before, it's very pretty. We had great seats!! Sheryl sounded great and was smoking hot! Glad my mom enjoyed herself and shes feeling good... Love her so much. Sheryl pointed right at us and smiled cuz we dancing and singing along surrounded everyone sitting.I have a question... if I want to stand up in my seat and dance and sing.... but eeeeeeeeeeveryone who's behind me sits on their ass the whole time... why do I have to sit? Like your at a concert on the floor rows in front of s kick ass band... why do people sit and just stare blankly at the performer? Like stay home. I want to stand, dance and shake my fat ass. Dont mess with my vibe!! No joke ....it wasnt until the last 2 songs people stood. We went to the side of the stage and formed a dance party with a bunch of women!! " - Abigail Stuart

[INTERVIEW] The Bulletin (Bend Bulletin)

If it makes you happy, see Sheryl Crow in Bend
’90s hitmaker returns to Les Schwab Amphitheater

By Brian McElhiney
bendbulletin.com

On any given summer day, all Bendites want to do is have some fun and soak up the sun.

It’s no accident that statement references three Sheryl Crow hit song titles (a love of puns notwithstanding). After years touring as a backing vocalist and working as a session singer, the Missouri-­born songwriter broke through mainstream radio with 1994’s “All I Wanna Do,” a laid-back anthem that set the template for what most mainstream audiences still think of when they think of Crow — insistent rhythms, bright guitar chords and melodies that practically drip sunshine.

Crow has performed at Les Schwab Amphitheater twice before. She will return to the venue on Wednesday, and judging from the way she gushed about the area during a recent chat with GO! Magazine, it’s not just her music that is simpatico with Central Oregon.

“This is the part of our country that we absolutely love and can’t wait to get to,” she said from a tour stop in Salt Lake City, following a marathon 14-hour bus ride from Calgary, Canada. “My kids and I are outdoors freaks — we just love hiking and camping and doing all the outdoors stuff. One of my great memories is being in Bend and my kids being off with some buddies floating (the Deschutes River) on inner tubes and just having a ball.”

Crow’s return to the venue coincides with a period of change for the songwriter. In 2015, Crow was at the tail end of the promotion for her 2013 album “Feels Like Home,” which found her embracing country music after collaborations with Loretta Lynn and Miranda Lambert; country/hip-hop/rocker Kid Rock and Vince Gill, among others. Though successful — the album hit No. 7 on the Billboard 200 and No. 3 on the Top Country Albums chart at its release — Crow decided to go back to her pop-rock roots on the follow-up, last year’s appropriately titled “Be Myself.”

“I’m not shunning country music,” she told Rolling Stone in an early 2017 interview. “I’m just not part of that format.”

Recording sessions for “Be Myself,” featuring Crow’s ’90s collaborators, producer/musician Jeff Trott and musician Tchad Blake, lasted “a couple months,” she said. But at the same time, Crow was also in the midst of sessions for an ambitious collaborative project that has been nearly three years in the making, and which the singer recently announced will be her last studio album (though not her last recorded work).

“I recorded with Kris Kristofferson and just felt like, you know what, it’s time for me to make a record with people I love, and that’s what I did,” Crow said. “I just started calling people, saying, ‘I’m making a record, would you be a part of it?’ and just had an incredible response. And I am saying it’s my last record — never say never — but I feel like two things. I feel like I’m not sure that people listen to albums anymore. It takes a lot to make an entire creative statement, and I think people are much more in the immediate and will put together playlists of songs, but they don’t necessarily get into the deep cuts. That’s one reason, but the other reason is, I don’t even know how I would follow this thing up.”

The still-untitled album will feature guest spots from a who’s who of country and rock musicians, many of whom have worked with Crow before: Stevie Nicks, Emmylou Harris, Sting, Joe Walsh, Willie Nelson, Don Henley (Crow’s second employer, as she put it — she sang background vocals for The Eagles singer-drummer in the late ’80s), Gary Clark Jr. and Johnny Cash, among others. First single “Wouldn’t Want to Be Like You,” released June 25 and, featuring vocals from Annie Clark of St. Vincent, takes a modern-soul approach with an insistent bass line and half-rapped, half-sung lyrics harking back to the stream-of-consciousness poetry of “All I Wanna Do.”

“Although they do sound like Sheryl Crow songs, they are kind of tailored to the person that I was singing with or playing with,” Crow said. “I did write with Joe Walsh, and we wrote like the ultimate Joe Walsh tune, and that was a blast. I wrote a tune that I felt like was just an awesome song for Stevie Nicks to sing, so I called her and said, ‘I have this song, check it out, see if you like it.’ So that’s how it went down — I would just write and think of people and shoot them the song and say, ‘What do you think?’ and in other instances I collaborated with people.”

Of course, her collaboration with Cash — a re-recording of her song “Redemption Day” from her 1996 self-titled album — was an exception. Cash also recorded the song shortly before his death, and his version eventually was released on 2010’s posthumous “American VI: Ain’t No Grave.”

“He told me — he said, ‘This is going to be the cornerstone of my next record; I feel energized by this song, I’m gonna build around it,’ and then he passed away about three months later,” Crow said. “And I kept waiting for his — you know, they put together different records, but it never came out, it never came out, it never came out. … And it did eventually come out, but I think it slipped under the radar, and so I called his family and said, ‘Look, I want to rework the song and would you be amenable to my using his demo vocals?’ And that’s what we did. I think he would really love it, and I think the timing of it would mean a lot to him as well with what’s going on in America.”

Editor’s note: This story has been corrected. In the original version, the number of times Sheryl Crow has performed in Bend was misidentified. The Bulletin regrets the error.

REVIEW #1

By Micheal Bialas
Popmatters.com

[...]

Crow, who later that first night joined String Cheese Incident for the Allman Brothers cover "Midnight Rider", was in excellent voice, seemingly happy, relaxed and pleased as punch to be there. Playing all the hits ("If It Makes You Happy", "All I Wanna Do", "Leaving Las Vegas", "Soak Up the Sun", "Everyday Is a Winding Road"), she moved energetically to each side of the stage and on the riser atop the front of a classic Volkswagen bus.

There were fire restrictions across San Miguel County because of a severe drought, though recent rains had improved conditions, while Town Park permitted smoking in designated areas and "only during Town-approved festivals". So grass was burning, and that made perfect scents to Crow. The Woodstock generation might have even done a double take in Colorado, where an amendment in 2012 was passed to allow the recreational use of marijuana.

"How ya doing out there? You sound good, you look good, you smell very good," Crow said cheerfully to the audience, obviously very aware of her surroundings halfway through a 90-minute set with six backing members after slaying songs new ("Wouldn't Want to Be Like You") and old ("The Na-Na Song" segueing into the Beatles' "I've Got a Feeling"). "I'm getting some wafts of that strange perfume. It's very delightful. And it's legal. I like that legal perfume."

[...]

REVIEW #2

By Chris Jensen
Aspen Daily News

[...]

Despite the high volume of String Cheese die-harders, Sheryl Crow was an undeniable favorite of the festival. Middle-aged men singing, or, more accurately, belting, along to Sheryl’s “If It Makes You Happy” was stone-cold proof. The screaming pleas for an encore from people of all walks of life provided further evidence. Young or old, no one can deny that they’ve heard her hits enough times to spark memories. She confirmed the festival’s theme for the year, “women who rock,” by stealing the show at 56. Her familiarity playing a crowd was obvious and her comfortable demeanor on the stage very apparent.

REVIEW

By Kelly Robinson
thelolasessions.com

July 11, 2018, Sheryl Crow on the Coke Stage at the Calgary Stamped - Sheryl Crow blew us away! Her vocal range really surprised us last night. The 56 year old legend came out with guns blazin’, and the crowd in attendance packed in the Coca Cola Stage and surrounding areas so tight it was almost impossible to move. We know, we got stuck. The crowd was huge and full of positive energy and good vibes.

Our resident photographer, Kelli 'Sunshine' Robinson was pretty disappointed to learn after making the trip downtown from the south with her camera equipment that Ms. Crow was not letting photographers into the photo pit. We were allowed to go to the red lounge area, but a few of us didn’t have the proper lenses for distance shots. Pretty crappy deal!

Other than the spacing issues and the lack of information about the photo pit, it was a fantastic show.

Letting us in on a new song - “I Wouldn’t Want To Be Like You”, Sheryl traded in her in her twangy rock with darker undertones as she rapped and sang. It was not in her signature style and in all honesty, We loved it! Was so happy to see another artist out there pushing their personal envelope and giving a fresh new look into what they are capable of. Bravo, Sheryl Crow!

She’s definitely still got it and if you ever get the chance to take in one of her shows, take it! - Kelli Robinson

LIVE REVIEW

Sheryl Crow is one hard-working single mother

by Mike Ross
www.gigcity.ca

When Sheryl Crow talked about being a mom at her show in Edmonton on Tuesday night, it struck a deep chord with her mainly middle class, mainly middle aged white audience. In short, soccer moms. Is the soccer over yet?

Illustrating the virtues and challenges that modern motherhood entails, the 56-year-old singer showed a depth of character one might not expect from a mainstream fluffy popsmith. Like this rock star can’t possibly be a human being, right?

You see, this single mom worked hard for almost two hours last night – a sold out show at the Jubilee Auditorium – so her boys, ages 8 an 11, could frolic in the amusement park and water park at West Edmonton Mall, where they’d already spent the entire day, she said. They really like West Edmonton Mall.

The boys probably already saw the show a few times already – a generally innocuous and unassuming yet impressive concert, with a great six-piece band who occupied that mysterious nexus betwixt country and rock, between soul and blues, and pure pop all around. Sheryl Crow is the master at this sort of thing, the Carole King of her time. It’s a grown-up thing.

Bonus points for working both “Edmonton” and “the mall” into her cover of First Cut is the Deepest, written by Yusuf Islam aka Cat Stevens, and made famous by Rod Stewart. Cheesy, right?

But wait. Soon came the obligatory patter about how she loves playing Canadian cities, naming them, so far, calling the whole thing a “vacation,” which it is, a working vacation, and chiding the crowd for a pre-emptive boo of Calgary (as is tradition in Shelbyville).

“I understand booing the other cities,” Crow said, “but try living in America right now.”

A cheer of empathy wafted through the hall. Those poor Americans. Think of this: Sheryl Crow, with her gifts of songcraft and voice could’ve been a HUGE country star, bigger than Taylor Swift – if only she wasn’t such a Leftie. Oh, well.

Crow dared to insert new tunes that technically weren’t “hits” into the “Greatest Hits” set that included all the expected songs: Opening with All I Wanna Do, and into material like A Change Would Do You Good and If It Makes You Happy. Hits every one, all expressing a more or less escapist worldview – especially her first hit in 1994, Leaving Las Vegas, which is literally about escape. Crow said later she doesn’t pay attention to the news, but she clearly does – who can escape it? – and it has obviously made an impact on her recent songwriting. It has darkened.

The first new number was the relatively upbeat Be Myself, the title track of her 2017 album. which is about the age of social media she said can’t imagine growing up in. The key line goes, “If I can’t be someone else, I might as well be myself.” Harder than it sounds. Later came the spooky Leftie anthem I Wouldn’t Want to Be Like You, clearly a shot at He Whom Shall Not Be Named. OK, it’s Donald Trump. Happy?

The capper: A very short speech about how despite America’s problems, we – Canada, too – still have freedom of speech. For now. She said, “We have to figure out how to agree to disagree without being assholes.”

Spoken like a true mother.

REVIEW

Crow ends folk fest with bang

By Jill Wilson
Winnipeg Free Press

After a brutally hot Saturday that wilted some spirits at the Winnpeg Folk Festival, the final Sunday ended up being a perfect summer day to wind up the 45th edition of the fest.

And American roots-pop singer-songwriter Sheryl Crow, who has penned some of the finest summer jams out there, was the perfect accompaniment to cap off the fest as the sun began setting in a cloudless sky at the main stage at Birds Hill Park.

She kicked off the set with her hit Every Day Is a Winding Road, surely one of the most ebullient songs of all times, its distinctive conga intro leading into a soaring singalong chorus that the crowd of thousands was only too happy to join in on.

The honey-voiced 56-year-old, clad in black leather pants, a sleeveless Daffy Duck shirt and glittery high tops, clearly wasn’t going to be stingy with the hits.

The Grammy winner commanded the stage during A Change Will Do You Good, and then her first smash single, All I Wanna Do, an irresistible ode to day drinking from her 1993 debut, Tuesday Night Record Club.

Her slick six-piece band (including two keyboard players) showed off their chops on My Favorite Mistake, with Crow all smiles as she danced around the stage.

She picked up her acoustic guitar again and brought down the tempo for Leaving Las Vegas, during which she buttered up the crowd with some Canadian-friendly lyrics.

There wasn’t much stage banter, but she did take a moment to lament the political situation in the United States.

"That’s not the real world; the real world is this right here," she said, gesturing at the crowd of sun-dazed folkies.

Her cover of The First Cut Is the Deepest was given a county twang with pedal steel; the crowd sang along with every word.

A bombastic newer song with Crow affecting hip-hop mannerisms was not as successful, but it was over quickly, and the multi-instrumentalist picked up a bass for a funky rendition of There Goes the Neighbourhood.

And the hits just kept on coming. At press time, she was turning the bittersweet ballad Are You Strong Enough To Be My Man into her own little personal ad, switching up the lyrics to insert the qualities she looks for in a guy.

"Sheryl Crow was my favorite. She and Melissa Etheridge were the reason I came to the festival. She played so many of my favorites, I was thrilled. Sarah MacLachlan was a first for me too. Pretty mellow but so beautiful. Then she brought Sheryl Crow on stage with her to sing and it was magical." - Chantal Morris

Thunder Bay News Watch

[...] It was Crow who stole the show, however.

Billed second on the day’s lineup, she delivered a 90-minute set that rolled out hit after hit after hit, from Soaking in the Sun to All I Want to Do – after spending part of the day cycling around Marina Park with her two young sons.

She reveled in the beauty of Northwestern Ontario, and urged her fellow countrymen to use it as inspiration to seek political change.

“I want all Americans to go stand in front of it and just take in its monstrosity, its power, its beauty – and then go back and overthrow their government,” she said. [...]

“I’m kidding – not really though.”

NOTES FROM THE TAPER

Sheryl was invited to perform at the Dublin Ohio annual July 4th celebration at Dublin Coffman Football Stadium. I had absolutely no luck in securing a table or stadium wristband prior to the show (I am no longer a Dublin resident) and none were available on craigslist or in any public forum. I got to the venue at 615 sharp and went to information.

They informed me the day of public stadium tickets were released at 10am and were gone by 1pm. They then told me to listen from behind the tennis courts -- what? I then waited near the front gates to see if anyone would have an extra wristband (field preferably). None. Finally a nice lady had a sheet of red wristbands (stadium) and I walked up to her and asked if she would be using all of them. She wouldn't be! Score! So, I got into the stadium, I just couldnt get near the actual field. Boo. Should I still record or just enjoy the show?

I decided to walk around the perimeter of the field to find the best possible sound from that distance. I found a nice spot near the fence (located in the endzone of the field). In front of me was a bunch of caution tape sectioning off an area for the Dublin Ohio Class of '68 50th anniversary. I decided to stay put right there. Im glad I did, I was able to sneak into this section and no one seemed to care. I was able to find an area inside this huge event where no one was near me! Whoa! The sound wasn't the greatest when Sheryl came out. The volume seemed extremely low for a stadium and I remained as quiet as possible hoping something would turn out. Finally, around "Strong Enough" the class of '68 shows up. Where were they?

Anyway, they brought lawn seats and only took up maybe 20% of the sectioned off real estate in that area I was in. They didn't talk much, either. They whispered between each other. I stayed put and kept rolling. I did walk left to right when I felt conversations were getting louder than usual, but you cant really even tell on the recording.

Regarding the performance, Sheryl was on fire and I cannot believe she played for 2 hours. I went into this show only expecting a 70-85 minutes max set. Surprise! Plus, it was completely free! I am shocked at how great this recording turned out given the circumstances. Keep in mind I was roughly 50 yards away standing in an endzone (see pics included). This is so much more than I could have hoped for from my bum luck in acquiring a field ticket. "Real Gone" was real fun to hear. "Can't Cry Anymore" & the new cut, "Wouldn't Want To Be Like You" were great, as well.

Put this on your favorite stereo system and turn it up!!

[NEWS] Sheryl Crow Announces Last Album Featuring Stevie Nicks, Johnny Cash & More

By Alessandra Rincón
Billboard

Sheryl Crow recently released a new single, "Wouldn't Want To Be Like You" featuring St. Vincent, and now she's announced plans to release her next and final album in 2019.

The full-length album will feature collaborations with musicians like Stevie Nicks, Keith Richards, Joe Walsh, Don Henley, and even the late Johnny Cash, as Crow revealed in an interview via Kyle Meredith With... on June 29.

"I've got this record in the can that's going to be coming out next year," she explained. "It's a very collaborative record with people I've asked to collaborate with me, people I've loved and have worked with and who have been heroes of mine forever."

"Albums as an art form are a bit of a dying art form. People are more interested in singles," Crow continued. "I've made the decision in my head that the record that comes out next year will be my last full album. I'll just start putting songs out...to put out really pertinent songs that feel immediate."

Crow also spoke about working with St. Vincent, a.k.a. Annie Clark, on "Wouldn't Want To Be Like You."

"I love Annie. I'm a big fan. I sent her this track and she was like 'Yes! Let me add it,' and she just brought all of her brilliance to it and it really, I think, created an edge there that is so synonymous with the meaning of the song. It's fun to play live and I can't wait to play it with her," she gushed. "We're psyched!"

Crow has been known to cover topics like gun control, opposing war, and saving the environment in her music. This last album, according to Crow, has been inspired by current events and does touch on issues like dishonesty in the media and politics and corruption.

"It's a luxurious time to be an artist if you want to write about what's going on. There's a lot to write about and just this climate of the truth not mattering has really been unnerving to me, especially when you're raising kids and you're trying to explain that no matter how painful it is, the truth is the most important thing. It just started with that," she said. "It started with all these stories swirling around after the President was elected about the idea of how much wealth there is out there and how many people get away with becoming wealthy on the backs of other people and how at the end of the day people are just going to believe what they're told by the person they support. It's a very alarming time."

Crow has also decided that she'll continue releasing singles on the digital distribution service Stem. The platform streamlines and tracks payments for artist and their collaborators offering a clear, and detailed financial picture including performance data and monthly payments.
