SINGLE REVIEW - "Call Me I'm Lonely" (forthecountryrecord.com)
I wasn’t a fan of Sheryl Crow coming to country. I had my suspicions from the outset, wondering whether she’d just make the same music and market it differently, maybe with a banjo and pedal steel thrown in for good measure.
SHERYL CROW SLIPS INTO COUNTRY SOUND AS EASILY AS FAVORITE PAIR OF OLD BOOTS
Sheryl Crow has flown an arrangement away from a commercial country sound throughout the two decades since the release of her multi-platinum debut, Tuesday Night Music Club. On Feels Like Home, Crow wings right into the country landscape as though she's sliding on a favorite pair of old boots. Throughout her eighth studio album, Crow bursts with the same sexy sunshine that has shone so brightly during her career and turns up the twang just enough to mine country chart gold without sounding like she's playing a temporary part.

Welcome to Idol Worship, a biweekly devotional to whoever the fuck I'm into.

LIVE REVIEW - WXTU & St Mary's private concert for breast cancer survivors
By Freda R. Savana
Sheryl Crow moves breast cancer survivors to tears
"We belong to an elite club," celebrity singer Sheryl Crow told a small audience of fellow breast cancer survivors Wednesday.
Crow, who was diagnosed with breast cancer nearly eight years ago at the age of 42, told the enthralled and emotional crowd, "You're amazing and you're always in my prayers."
The nine-time Grammy winner came to New Hope's Triumph Brewery as part of an honorary luncheon sponsored by St. Mary Medical Center and radio station WXTU.
Echoing the thoughts of many cancer survivors, Crow said her life was forever changed after the devastating diagnosis. "I always put myself at the bottom of the list, but I learned to say no. ... It was a game changer."
Like others, Crow said, she had a description of what she thought her life was supposed to be. "Married, children, happy-ever-after."
But after confronting cancer, the famous singer/songwriter said she learned that way of thinking "narrows what happens ... you have to open up and let life in."
Mary Ellen Davis, 47, learned she had stage 3 breast cancer in June 2010. The nurse at St. Mary said she's doing well, thanks to the support of her family, friends and physicians.
"To be able to share your story really helps," added Davis.
The theme of support and love was evident in the room of 30 survivors and their guests, who laughed, cried and hugged each other throughout the event.
Dr. Stacy Krisher, medical director of St. Mary's breast center, said people go through an array of emotions waiting to know if they have cancer.
"It starts with fear, sleepless nights and waiting and more waiting." Then, when the diagnosis comes, "life is turned upside down."
Patients ask, "will I see my daughter get married? Will I see my baby's first birthday?"
Through often grueling treatment they discover how strong they are, said Krisher. "They learn who and what is important to them."
The strength of the "pink warriors" was applauded by Andie Summers, part of WXTU's morning show team.
By refusing to let cancer defeat them, she told the women and men, "you make your life matter."
Crow moved the audience to tears, using her powerful music, while understanding their determination, fear and strength.
Of her cancer, she told them: "It was a gift, not one I want to go through again, but it was a gift."

NEWS - Sheryl will perform at Detroit auto show charity preview
By Mark Phelan
Detroit Free Press Auto Critic
Grammy-winning singer Sheryl Crow will perform a full concert in Cobo Center on Detroit’s riverfront Jan. 17 following the charity preview of the 2014 North American International Auto Show. Crow will perform in Cobo’s expansive new riverfront atrium for about 90 minutes after the charity preview ends at 9 p.m.
“The party kicks into high gear at 9,” show chairman Bob Shuman said. “There’s going to be lots happening after the charity preview.”
The Detroit Auto Dealers Association is organizing the concert and other afterglow events to show off Cobo Center’s new attractions and celebrate the 25th anniversary of the prestigious international status that’s made the Detroit show one of the world’s leading auto shows and one of Detroit’s signature events.
Thousands of formally dressed partiers usually flood out of Cobo immediately after the charity preview, bound for dinners and receptions all over town. The DADA expects Crow’s performance to convince many to stay at the renovated Cobo for music, drinks and snacks after the preview. Other post-preview events at Cobo are in the works.
“It’s going to be a great show,” Shuman said. “The auto industry is on an upswing.”
The dozens of vehicles expected to debut at the NAIAS include the new Ford F-series pickup, Mercedes-Benz C-class sedan and production and concept vehicles from Acura, Audi, Bentley, BMW, Cadillac, Chrysler Group, Chevrolet, GMC, Hyundai, Kia, Lexus, Nissan, Subaru, Toyota, Volkswagen and Volvo.
“This is an opportunity to take another step for the 25th anniversary and begin building for next year,” Shuman said. “It’s like a whole new event with the new features at Cobo and a great performer like Sheryl Crow.”
The charity preview has raised $91 million for southeast Michigan children’s charities over the years, including $3.9 million last year, when 13,069 attended the party. DADA hopes to top $4 million this year. Crow works with charities including the Breast Cancer Research Foundation, World Food Program and Natural Resources Defense Council.
The auto show pumps hundreds of millions of dollars into southeast Michigan’s economy annually, including an estimated $391 million last year.
Other musicians who have performed at the charity preview include Celine Dion, Kevin Bacon, the Rockets and Barenaked Ladies. Most gave brief performances of just a few songs.
Tickets for the charity preview cost $350, $340 of which is tax deductible. They can be purchased at naias.com. Click on 2014 show, then charity preview or call 888.838.7500.

NEWS - Sheryl to headline special CP Holiday Train concert in Cottage Grove
Cottage Grove show part of Holiday Train's 15th year of rolling fundraiser for food shelves
MINNEAPOLIS, Nov. 12, 2013 /PRNewswire/ - Joined by award winning a capella group, Take 6, Sheryl Crow will headline a free concert when the Canadian Pacific (CP) Holiday Train makes its annual stop at Cottage Grove, MN on December 14, 2013.
"We are thrilled to be performing with Sheryl Crow, whom we've all admired and followed for years. It is particularly special because of the worthy cause this event is serving," said Claude McKnight, founding member of Take 6.
This Holiday Train signature event, in support of the Friends in Need Food Shelf, is taking place at the CP Yard (9250 Ideal Avenue) and kicks-off with the opening of the North Pole Station at 4:00 p.m. followed by the concert, which begins at 5:00 p.m.
The North Pole Station, a magical village, will feature family-oriented interactive activities, including ice carving, hot chocolate and a chance for the kids to visit Santa before making their way to the concert stage.
While the event is free, those attending are asked to make a donation. Everything collected at each show stays in the community for local distribution.
"The Friends in Need Food Shelf has been helping the residents in South Washington County for the past 21 years. We will serve around 38,000 people this year and we are so excited for this special Holiday Train and Concert to come to Cottage Grove," said Friends in Need Food Shelf Director Michelle Rageth. "The cash that is raised from this event constitutes almost half of our Food Shelf budget and we are able to get the best food deals possible with the money collected."
Rageth added, "Because we know that some people will want to donate items, we'd like to suggest toiletries such as shampoo, toilet paper, paper towels, deodorant, bar soap, toothbrushes, diapers and feminine products. These products are in short supply at the food shelf and will be a great gift to our clients! We want to stress how grateful we are for this amazing community that supports us so generously--we couldn't do it without you!"
"This is one Holiday Train stop you do not want to miss! I am very excited to welcome everyone--from our community to the upper Midwest and beyond--to this once-in-a-lifetime event. When I learned Sheryl Crow would headline the free concert I knew this was going to be the biggest event we've ever had in Cottage Grove," said Cottage Grove Mayor Myron Bailey. "I was honored to learn we were the only city in the United States chosen to host this special anniversary show. I invite everyone to make plans to join me at the Cottage Grove Holiday Train stop to enjoy the winter wonderland, the concert and help out our local food shelf."
The Cottage Grove stop is part of CP's 2013 Holiday Train program, which runs from November 25 until December 19, and features two brightly decorated trains traveling across the United States and Canada. Since 1999, the Holiday Train has raised about $7.4 million and about 3 million pounds of food for North American food shelves.
this extra-special Holiday Train event is one of only three stops across North America where Canadian Pacific has added additional star-power to help shine a spotlight on the railway's mission of raising food, money and awareness in the fight against hunger. Similar events will be held in two Canadian cities - Hamilton, Ontario on November 30 and in Calgary, Alberta on December 7.

Live 4 the Give: New Foundation Taps the Power of Pop Culture and Social Media for Social Change
Live 4 The Give is a 501c3 not-for-profit organization established to integrate live programming and social media to create social change.
New York City–based brand strategy and events company Mission BIG—best known for producing last year’s Benefit for United Way of New York City charity concert featuring Jay-Z, Alicia Keys & Nas—has launched Live 4 the Give Foundation, a 501c3 not-for-profit organization established to integrate live programming and social media to create social change.
Live 4 the Give (http://www.Facebook.com/Live4theGive) employs a new business model that ushers demand pricing into charity events. The not-for-profit will produce pop culture–focused events that are broadcast to virtual audiences and constructed to engage with fans on various social media platforms—all with the purpose of expanding the pool of potential donors and driving larger-scale fundraising efforts for charitable partners.
“We’re embarking on a new chapter in collaborative philanthropy, as we orchestrate events that aim to engage with donors beyond the venue and bring social change on a scale we hope the world has never before seen,” said Jamie Rose, creative director and producer for Mission BIG, and the architect of Live 4 the Give.
The foundation was formed as an evolution of the Benefit for United Way of New York City concert, which raised $3 million for low-income students across New York City’s five boroughs, generated nearly 1 billion earned media impressions and garnered the top spot on The New York Times Critic's List of the Best Concert Events of 2012. After producing the high-profile cause concert, Mission BIG realized that expanding the donor pool to untold millions of social media users could exponentially increase donations, and decided to devise the innovative, first-of-its-kind Live 4 the Give Foundation.
About Mission BIG
Mission BIG is a brand strategy and events company based in New York City that produces events focused on fundraising. In early 2012, Mission BIG brought Jay-Z, Alicia Keys & Nas, accompanied by Questlove and a 40-piece orchestra, to landmark venue Carnegie Hall. Earning the top spot on The New York Times Critic's List of the Best Concert Events of 2012, the show generated nearly 1 billion earned media impressions, raised $3 million and received sponsorship from top brands American Express, CITI, Viacom, Target, and many more.

NEWS - Staged Reading of New Musical Diner Will Be Held in December
By Andrew Gans
A staged reading of 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 in April, will be held in December, according to an Equity casting notice.
The workshop, which will be held Dec. 2-13 at Pearl Studios, will be helmed by Tony winner Kathleen Marshall with music direction by Lon Hoyt. Scott Landis produces.
In January it was announced that the Broadway opening of the musical would be delayed. Producer Scott Zeiger told the New York 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."
The musical about pals who gather at a Baltimore diner in 1959 is being directed and choreographed by three-time Tony Award winner 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 also 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.
