Nashville Predators Welcome Sheryl Crow for National Anthem

It’s down to the final game. The Nashville Predators are facing off against the Winnipeg Jets for game seven in round two of the Stanley Cup playoffs. Who will take home the win? It’s too soon to tell, but Music City is pumped up for an epic game.

While rowdy fans in gold and navy rallied in Bridgestone Arena, the energy grew even higher when Sheryl Crow stepped out onto the ice to perform the National Anthem. Showing her Preds pride in a hockey jersey, Crow crooned the Star-Spangled Banner to thousands of cheering fans.

At the conclusion of her performance, Crow got going with a rally towel, hyping up the crowd as the players took their position on the ice.

The new tradition of stars singing the National Anthem began during the 2017 season when the Preds made a Stanley Cup run. During each home game, stars including Carrie Underwood, Kelly Clarkson, Vince Gill, Keith Urban, among others, sported their “fang fingers” and impressive vocals.

In addition to Crow’s performance this season, the group joins the ranks of Maren Morris, Brad Paisley and Rascal Flatts, who have also stepped center ice for the patriotic moment.

The Preds and Jets play once again on Monday (5/7) in Winnipeg for Game 6.

[INTERVIEW] Nottingham Post Interview (UK) - 10 May 2018

Sheryl Crow on what to expect when her 2018 greatest hits tour reaches Nottingham

'We play all the hits... it'll be an eight hour set'

By Kevin Cooper
The Nottingham Post

It is 25 years since international music star Sheryl Crow released her debut long player. Since then she has shifted 50 million albums, performed with the Rpolling Stones, Eric Clapton, Michale Jackson and Prince, and tried her hand at acting in 30 Rock, Cougar Town and One Tree Hill. The 56-year-old tells Kevin Cooper about her All The Greatest Hits Live Tour that comes to Nottingham in June.

Can you believe it's 25 years since you released debut album, Tuesday Night Music Club?

Isn’t that crazy? I can’t believe that at all. I also can’t believe that I have an eleven-year-old son and an eight-year-old son. Or that I have been out on the road now for thirty years. That can be a scary though sometimes but at this moment in time I feel so much gratitude for being able to still be doing it. And I am really enjoying it. I spend my time with people I love, enjoy and admire. I find that as I get older I am becoming more sentimental about these things.

That album sold over seven million copies in the USA alone!

I had the good fortune to make the album when people still bought records. I fear nowadays that no-one will ever know what that is like. When you put a record out now and want to know how many people have it in their cars or on their home stereos, that is such an intangible thing that you will really never know the answer. Because a lot of music now comes out via subscription on Spotify or Apple Music, you really don’t know how many people are listening to it. It is a whole different thing.

Do you think that music streaming is killing the music industry?

Well, the toothpaste is already out of the tube and there is very little that you can do about it. But it's the artist who take the hit. It is one of the reasons that we now have the cockamamie 360 deals where young artists sign with a record label, and the record label takes half of their publishing and half of their merchandise sales - because that is the only way that they can make any money. It really is the artists who suffer.

The reality of it is that people don’t feel that they need to pay for music. I understand that because they have grown up with it being that way.

It was the highlight of your week wasn’t it? You would spend all week deciding what records you were going to buy, and then on Saturday you would go down to the record shop and buy them...

Yes you would but sadly that experience is over. Us older people can remember that feeling and just how exciting it was. All of your friends would come over and share in that experience. The relationship that young people have with music nowadays is entirely different.

You are about to embark on your All The Greatest Hits Live Tour here in the UK, so what can we expect?

A rocking good time (laughs). It will be fun. The set is unbelievable, it is great music.

I have a great band who I have now been playing with for the past five years and they are all people who I both love and admire. They are totally kick ass. All of us have this sense of ‘aren’t we the lucky ones?’ that we are out doing what we love the most; we are out there playing music, loving and enjoying it.

It is now much more fun than it ever has been.

Why are you only playing three dates on this tour?

It is getting harder and harder to get overseas now because you simply cannot make the money back, and you wind up just paying for it. We had an offer to play The Isle Of Wight Festival and that kind of gave us permission to get ourselves over there. I think that this time we will break even.

But for us it is all about playing and we have such a long history with the UK. We have always enjoyed such a wonderful relationship with our fans over there and we are happy that we will be able to come over and play.

As it is a greatest hits tour, has it been difficult for you to decide what to play and what not to play?

Not at all. We play all of them. It'll be an eight hour set (laughs).

It is nice to be able to have a choice. We do play a lot longer than we used to do. Strangely, as I get older I play longer. We don’t want to kill our audiences but we play, on average, two and a half hours. And we cover a lot. We play some of the newer things that we know the audiences want to hear, plus a lot of the older, more familiar songs as well.

What has been the highlight of your career so far?

One of them has to be recording Tomorrow Never Dies for the James Bond movie. After that I was invited over to London for the premier and met Prince Charles.

Have you ever gotten out of bed and thought to yourself ‘I don’t really want to do this anymore’?

I've had a couple of days like that. I was so disillusioned with the whole music industry, and about how I was continuing to make what I thought were good records but over here in the USA, radio stations were no longer play older artists like myself. At that point I reminded myself just how lucky I was to be doing this and that I really don’t have a choice.

I know that I could still have a pretty good life if I never did this again. I have great children, I have wonderful friends, a great family, so me doing this is kind of the icing on the cake.

Tickets are £32.45, £43.45 and £60.50 (admin fee included) from Ticketmaster here.

[NEWS] Sheryl Crow, Cam, Common Included In Recording Academy Diversity Task Force

The Recording Academy has announced the names of its newly formed task force on diversity and inclusion that will examine barriers and biases affecting women and other underrepresented voices in the industry and, specifically, the Recording Academy.

Tina Tchen, Chair of the Recording Academy’s task force, has spent weeks since her appointment meeting with and listening to constituents across the music community, and using that feedback to assemble a task force that is balanced in perspectives and interests to ensure that the group is independent and focused on making progress in the industry. All members will volunteer their time and expertise, and none are employed by the Recording Academy or hold any position on its Board. The task force includes the following music creators, executives, scholars, and thought leaders in gender equality and diversity:

  • Stephanie Alexa, vice president of finance and licensing administration, ATO Records
  • Michele Anthony, executive vice president and executive management board member, Universal Music Group
  • Cam, GRAMMY-nominated artist
  • Common, GRAMMY-winning artist
  • Sheryl Crow, GRAMMY-winning artist
  • Andra Day, GRAMMY-nominated artist
  • Giselle Fernandez, award-winning television journalist
  • Jimmy Jam, GRAMMY-winning artist
  • Beth Laird, CEO and co-owner, Creative Nation
  • Debra Lee, chairman and CEO, BET Networks
  • Rebeca Leon, co-founder and CEO, Lionfish Entertainment
  • Elizabeth Matthews, CEO, ASCAP
  • Dr. Stacy L. Smith, founder and director, USC Annenberg Inclusion Initiative
  • Ty Stiklorius, founder and CEO, Friends At Work
  • Julie Swidler, executive vice president of business affairs and general counsel, Sony Music
  • Dean Wilson, CEO, SEVEN20

“I’m honored to lead such an esteemed group of visionaries who possess the experience and passion needed to drive real change in building a more inclusive and equitable music community,” said Tchen. “This is an important first step made possible by the Recording Academy’s leadership, which recognizes the benefit of examining these issues with fresh eyes.”

The task force is set to meet shortly to begin a review of Recording Academy operations and policies across the areas of corporate governance, hiring and promotion, membership, awards, and the GRAMMY Awards telecast. As Chair, Tchen will develop an operational roadmap for the task force and update the Recording Academy on the group’s progress on an ongoing basis throughout the year. As one of its first orders of business, the task force has established a feedback tool to collect public input and suggestions for the group’s review and consideration. Anyone interested in providing suggestions for the task force can do so by visiting

“This is an extremely important initiative for us,” said John Poppo, Chair of the Recording Academy Board of Trustees. “The Board takes seriously any role the Recording Academy can play in serving our music community, and certainly one that could facilitate increased diversity and inclusion. We are inspired by the prospect of what this task force might accomplish, and we’re grateful to Tina and the group’s esteemed members for graciously agreeing to partner with us in this effort.”

[NEWS] Reef Guitarist Jesse Wood about Sheryl's collaboration on "My Sweet Love"



I’ve heard the lead single of the track with Sheryl Crow, her’s and Gary’s voice compliment each others incredibly well don’t they?

It’s better than we could have ever imagined, it’s made the whole song so good and complete . And lovely that she agreed to do it too. She’s such a lovely lady.

She’s a good old friend of George Drakoulias and we didn’t have the time to go to LA to record it so he did it with her and Gary was talking to her about how it goes and I've met her a long time ago with my Dad, she’s worked with my Dad and she’s supported The Stones a lot so it all went click suddenly – so we were like let’s work with her, and it really worked and it sounds amazing. She’s such a pro singer.

We were playing that song for a whole live, and its always gone down well. We knew it was going to be a good one and Gary has been singing it for ages which was great. We were sat in Ireland and I think George probably suggested it cos hes a producer – we were all kind of thinking it that it needed a male female vocal, cos it’s a summery love song. Then Sheryl popped out, which is great and was perfect.
