[NEWS] Sheryl Concerts to Benefit New Hope Academy
Benefiting New Hope Academy
Nine-time Grammy recipient Sheryl Crow’s latest album Feels Like Home (Warner Bros.) is inspired by the type of community and dedication to family she finds while living in middle Tennessee. It’s that same sense of commitment that motivates her to help New Hope Academy by hosting three concerts at the Franklin Theatre on June 9, 10 and 11 this year.
“It’s amazing to live in a community with so many creative people that support one another. We’re blessed to have an institution like New Hope Academy dedicated to providing extraordinary educational opportunities while including a diverse student base, including the underprivileged,” says Ms. Crow. “These shows are one way I contribute personally and also invite my fans to help foster their success.”
According to Stuart Tutler, Headmaster of New Hope Academy, "Ms. Crow has a huge heart. We are thankful for her generosity to invest her time and talents in the mission of New Hope Academy. It's great being able to tell the story of New Hope to so many people and it wouldn't be possible without her help."

[NEWS] Sheryl Crow, Barry Levinson to bring musical ‘Diner’ to Washington
By Peter Marks
The Washington Post
March 18 2014
Get ready to hear the guys from “Diner” crooning a score by Sheryl Crow in a familiar theater in Arlington. . A new musical version of the acclaimed 1982 movie, with music and lyrics by Crow and a book by the film’s writer-director, Barry Levinson, will have its world premiere at Signature Theatre in December, the company announced Tuesday.
“Diner,” to be staged by Kathleen Marshall — represented most recently on Broadway by the Gershwins-inspired “Nice Work if You Can Get It” — is the latest show to appear on a Washington theater’s roster with Broadway in its sights. “If/Then,” the new musical that opens formally on Broadway on March 30, tried out last fall at the National Theatre, and a revamped incarnation of “Gigi,” based on the 1958 movie musical, will have its “pre-Broadway engagement” at the Kennedy Center in January.
“One of the great things for us is to go to Signature, which has a legacy of loving musicals and nurturing musicals,” singer-songwriter Crow said in a telephone interview. “I think more than anything for Barry and me is just having an opportunity to see what we have, seeing if people are on board with it.”
The musical version of Levinson’s film is one of four world-premiere shows on Signature’s eight-production agenda for 2014-15. The others are “Kid Victory,” by John Kander (“Chicago”) and Greg Pierce, a co-production with New York’s Vineyard Theatre; “Soon,” with book, music and lyrics by Nick Blaemire, a Bethesda native who wrote the music for Signature’s “Glory Days”; and “Simply Sondheim,” a new revue of the music of Stephen Sondheim, created to coincide with Signature’s 25th anniversary.
The season will also include revivals of the popular musicals “Sunday in the Park with George” and “Cabaret”; a restaging of the rarely performed musical “Elmer Gantry,” which premiered in 1988 at Ford’s Theatre; and a play, Laura Eason’s “Sex with Strangers, with Holly Twyford in the lead.
But “Diner” and its high-wattage creators, who will be in Arlington in the run-up to performances beginning Dec. 9, are surely the season’s marquee attraction. The prospect of the “Diner” premiere was so alluring to artistic director Eric Schaeffer that he bumped another, previously disclosed show for next season — a revival of the musical “The Fix” — to make room for Crow and Levinson’s work. (“The Fix,” by John Dempsey and Dana P. Rowe, has been moved to the 2015-16 season.)
Schaeffer made the switch after receiving a call several weeks ago from Scott Landis, an acquaintance and the commercial producer attached to “Diner.” “He said, ‘Is your season all done?’ ” Schaeffer recalled. “I said, ‘Well, kind of, what are you thinking?’ He said, ‘We have “Diner,” and we just want to go work on it at a regional theater somewhere.’ ”
The artistic director immediately texted Managing Director Maggie Boland, who determined that the switch could be made in a “budgetarily neutral” way.
“We really made the decision in like two days,” Schaeffer said.
The musical “Diner” has been, like many such projects, on a yo-yo of a development track. The show, whose creative team was announced in 2011, has had two significant workshop runs but also some stalls in its advance. A plan to open on Broadway in April last year was scrubbed by original producer Scott Zeiger; a tryout run set for San Francisco the previous autumn had also been canceled. The explanation at the time was that the musical still needed work.
The project has since been taken up by a new producer, Landis, who also was one of the producers of the Marshall-directed “Nice Work if You Can Get It,” which starred Matthew Broderick and Kelli O’Hara.
“We had a very rocky beginning, and now we feel we are very loved and cherished,” Crow said.
“We would love just to see a production of it, where you actually have the costumes and the choreography,” Levinson said.
Set in Baltimore in the late 1950s, the character-driven “Diner” surveys the romantic and other travails of a group of buddies in their 20s. The small, evocative film not only established the reputation of Levinson — who would go on to make “Rain Man,” “Good Morning Vietnam,” “Bugsy” and “Wag the Dog” — but also essentially introduced to American moviegoers a pack of little-known young stars: Kevin Bacon, Mickey Rourke, Daniel Stern, Steve Guttenberg and, in the one female role of any prominence, Ellen Barkin.
Levinson says that while the movie concentrated heavily on the male characters — the exception was Barkin’s Beth — the musical widens the perspective by looking more deeply at the women in their lives.
“The musical deals with the five guys but it really also gives voice to the females,” Levinson said in a conference call with Crow. “Sheryl has created these songs which not only support but advance in a number of ways the frustration and struggle of young women.”
Crow, who says she grew up far from Broadway always “wanting to do” musicals, has used the sounds and musical styles of the late ’50s to create the score. Not that figuring out how to bring the piece to life on a stage came easily. “When Barry initially asked me about doing this, I read the script and saw the movie and said, ‘Nothing happens!’ ” she said. They’re both coming to Signature with the hope that something vigorous now does happen.
Sligo Live is delighted to announce one of America’s most exciting artists, SHERYL CROW, as the headline act for their 10th Anniversary. She will play the Knocknarea Arena at IT Sligo on Bank Holiday Sunday, October 26th 2014. This will be her only 2014 Irish performance.

[REVIEW+PIX] T.J. Martell Foundation Honour Gala - Nashville, 10 March
T.J. Martell Foundation Honour Gala
Nashville, Tennessee (USA)
* * *
By Cindy Watts
Universal Music Group Nashville Chairman and CEO Mike Dungan joked the he couldn’t wait for T.J. Martell Foundation’s sixth annual Nashville Honors Gala to be over because the idea of being honored with the Frances Preston Lifetime Music Industry Achievement Award made him nervous.
“It feels weird,” he said before the Monday night event at which he was being honored. “I’ve been coming to these for a long, long time and I still think of myself as a 19-year-old kid who is still finding his way through the industry. To be held up like this … is a little intimidating and a little scary.”
Dungan — who is the record label executive behind careers including Luke Bryan, Lady Antebellum and Darius Rucker — was one of five people honored at the event,which serves as a fundraiser for The T.J. Martell Foundation. The organization raises funds for the ongoing research of treatments and cures for leukemia, cancer and AIDS. The other honorees were: entrepreneur, breast cancer survivor and Kenny Loggins fan Beth Dortch Franklin; chairman of Morris Artists Management Dale Morris; associate director for basic research at Vanderbilt University Medical Center Dr. Scott Hiebert; and co-founder of real estate partnership Corner Partnership LLC Mark Bloom.
Hosted by ABC “Nashville” actor Charles Esten at Omni Nashville Hotel, the event kicked off with Sheryl Crow and Charlie Worsham paying musical tribute to Hiebert.
“I love a banquet,” Crow quipped, “ — the sound of salad forks. We were laughing that it kind of reminded us of playing the Kiwanis Club when we were young.”
Regardless, Hiebert was nearly giddy before the show at the thought of Crow performing for him — he said she was his first choice and that he couldn’t believe she said yes. But when he took the stage, his mood was more serious, and he told the crowd there would be new cures for some forms of cancer in 10 years because of events like the gala.
Tim McGraw paid tribute to Bloom, his friend and partner in the former Nashville Kats arena football team. McGraw performed his song “My Little Girl” before telling the audience that Bloom was responsible for changing Nashville’s skyline.
“This is a huge honor,” said Bloom, who was presented with the Spirit of Nashville Award. “The music industry is so important to our city and this foundation is so important. These people have done such incredible work.”
Alabama’s Randy Owen, and country singers Jake Owen and Kenny Chesney were on hand to watch Morris be presented with the Tony Martell Lifetime Entertainment Achievement Award. Morris manages Jake Owen and Chesney, and managed Alabama through the peak of the group’s career.
During the ceremony, touring country music force Chesney said, “Dale Morris didn’t just touch my life — he altered it in a great way. He was a teacher and a great motivator when I need it. I thanked God so many nights that Dale Morris was the man I met when I moved to Nashville, Tennessee.”
Before the event, Randy Owen recalled spending many of his life’s most memorable moments with Morris, playing him the group’s biggest hits, sitting beside him when he heard about the 9-11 attacks and getting the call from him that Alabama would be inducted into the Country Music Hall of Fame.
“Being able to share those moments with him and knowing how hard we all worked together (to achieve them), makes being at this event where he’s being honored very special to me,” Randy Owen said.
Jake Owen said he wouldn’t be where he is in his career with hits including “Barefoot Blue Jean Night,” if it wasn’t for Morris.
“I’m pretty honored I got asked to perform a song for Dale,” Jake Owen said. “Dale is one of the most well deserving people I know for a lifetime achievement award.”
Darius Rucker feels the same way about Mike Dungan. Rucker, who performed his hit “History in the Making” during the show, said Dungan changed his life.
“He gave me a record deal when I don’t think anyone else would have,” Rucker said. “He supported me with everything he had from the beginning. He told me, ‘Do what you do, and we’ll make it work.”
[VIDEO] Sheryl Recalls Almost Adopting a St. Jude Patient
By Taste of Country
When asked if she had a St. Jude moment, Sheryl Crow didn’t hesitate. The internationally-known singer has been working with the St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital for almost 20 years, but remembers one little girl who stole her heart at a time when she was exhausted.
Crow tells Taste of Country that her band decided to visit a children’s hospital in every city they toured in just after the song ‘All I Want to Do’ had caught fire. They started with St. Jude in Memphis, where they found a girl who’d been in a car accident.
“Both her parents and her siblings were killed, and she was 2-and-a-half. And no one was coming forward,” Crow recalls. She was ready to begin the adoption proceedings when a distant family member stepped forward, but the warmth with which Marlo Thomas and the staff at St. Jude embraced this girl, and all families who stay for treatment, left an impression on the ‘Callin’ Me When I’m Lonely’ singer.
“I was just amazed at the beautiful way they wrap their arms around families that come through there,” Crow shares. “I’ve been involved ever since.”
Today (March 6) and Friday, Taste of Country is pressing pause on coverage of all but the most pressing news stories in an effort to raise money for St. Jude. For 25 years, country radio, artists and record labels have helped raise more than $500 million, ensuring that no one ever pays a dime for treatment at St. Jude.
“No child should die in the dawn of life,” founder Danny Thomas once said. Help make that wish a reality by making a donation or becoming a Partner in Hope when you click the button below. Donations can be made by phone at 800-411-9898.
