BMI and Marriott International joined forces to present an intimate evening with pop legend Sheryl Crow at the hotel company’s 2012 annual owners meeting held on October 30th at the Marriott Beach Resort on Marco Island, FL. Crow performed many of her biggest hits including “All I Wanna Do”, “If it Makes You Happy” and “Soak up the Sun” in front of an enthusiastic group of Marriott hotel owners and executives. The annual conference, know as MINA, is an event that Marriott hosts each year for its full service owners and franchisees. Pictured after the show are Marriott International President & CEO Arne Sorenson, Sheryl Crow and BMI’s Dan Spears.

NEWS - Political elections - It's Sheryl Crow vs. Duggars in Mo.
By Dan Friedman
In the Missouri Senate race, GOP Rep. Todd Akin has the Duggar Family. Democratic Sen. Claire McCaskill has Sheryl Crow.
The Duggars, a large family of conservative Christian parents featured on a reality television show on TLC, campaigned with Akin last week. Crow, who grew up in Kennett, Mo., sent a fundraising email for McCaskill Tuesday.
"In the case of the Senate election in my home state of Missouri, there are a number of issues that I care deeply about: a woman's right to choose, access to affordable health care, higher education opportunities for our children, protection of Medicare and Social Security, and simply acknowledging the science of global climate change," Crow's message says. "But, you simply won't get that with Todd Akin. His extreme views come first. And second. What's best for Missouri families doesn't seem to enter the equation. I can't stand by and let someone like that represent my childhood home. Please join me and support Claire by making a $5 donation today."
McCaskill also launched a new statewide television ad Tuesday that features veterans describing their support for reelection.
If spots paid for by the Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee are included, McCaskill is spending about six times as much as Akin on advertising this week, Democratic sources said.

Some people say music and politics don't mix. I disagree.
A good song and a good candidate are a lot alike. Both draw from personal experiences and relate to the listener about issues that matter deeply to them.
So whether I'm sitting down to write a song or standing up to speak out about the importance of the upcoming election, I'm drawing upon the same experiences — I'm a woman, a cancer survivor, a mother, a daughter of an aging parent, and someone who values the land.
In the case of the Senate election in my home state of Missouri, there are a number of issues that I care deeply about: a woman's right to choose, access to affordable health care, higher education opportunities for our children, protection of Medicare and Social Security, and simply acknowledging the science of global climate change.
And I don't have to remind you, if Todd Akin is elected we would lose everything I just mentioned. That's right — gone.
Don't get me wrong, Claire and I haven't seen eye to eye on everything in the last six years. But, that's one of the things I appreciate most about her. She consistently works towards compromise, even when her friends are encouraging her to take a hard line.
She always does what's best for Missouri.
But, you simply won't get that with Todd Akin. His extreme views come first. And second. What's best for Missouri families doesn't seem to enter the equation.
I can't stand by and let someone like that represent my childhood home. Please join me and support Claire by making a $31 donation today:
I get all of Claire's emails — just like you do — and I'm honored that I get to send one and be a part of this.
Thanks for being a part of this, too,
NEWS - A message from Sheryl via her website
It's been a while since my website was updated, and it needed a fresh coat of paint. So while it's being reworked, I hope you'll follow me on Facebook and/or Twitter. There's so much happening; I've been working on the music and lyrics for "Diner" the musical, which opens on Broadway in April. And it's true, I've been working on a new album in Nashville, hope to be able to share more with you about it early next year.
I thank all my fans so much for your love and support of my music and the causes that mean so much to me. I can't wait to share the new stuff with you in 2013.
All my love,

NEWS - Sheryl special guest on the new Darius Rucker's album
Former Hootie&Blowfish frontman Darius Rucker recruits Sheryl for his forthcoming album titled "True Believers".
Here's an exerpt from an interview posted on TasteOfCountry.com
What kind of surprises can we expect to hear on the new record?
We did a fun cover of ‘Wagon Wheel’ with Lady Antebellum. Then there’s a song called ‘Love Without You’ that I did with Sheryl Crow. That is an outside song that is just awesome.
How did you manage to get Sheryl Crow on the project?
[My producer] Frank Rogers and I are real close. We’re good friends. We finished ‘Love Without You,’ and I loved it. We really wanted a girl on it, but we didn’t know what was going to happen or what we were going to do. We thought about it, and I’ve always wanted Sheryl Crow to be on one of my records from back in the day. We played a show together all the way back in 1994. I thought she was just amazing, and I always knew I wanted her to sing on one of my records. Here we are, 18 years later or whatever it is, and Frank said, ‘What about Sheryl?’ I said, ‘You’re kidding me?!’ He had just done some work with her and said he would ask her, and she did it. It was one of those things that still amazes me. I listen to that song all the time. Her part gives me chills.

NEWS - Sheryl arrives on Rock Band Music Store
By Mike Splechta
With Rock Band Blitz making me once again invested in the music game genre, I'm again interested in the updates to the Rock Band Music Store, since now any song you purchase from there can be used both in Rock Band 3 and Rock Band Blitz.
Coming October 16th, you'll be able to rock/jam/belt out to three tracks; 'Come on Eileen' from Save Ferris, 'All I Wanna Do' by Sheryl Crow, and 'Animal I Have Become' by Three Days Grace. These songs will be available on Xbox 360, PlayStation 3 and Wii, though obviously if you're picking them up on the Wii, you don't get Blitz support.
Additionally, Rock Band Blitz players who play any of these tracks will earn double coins for each play, as well as double coins for each time they play any Three Days Grace track! Not bad.
So either grab your plastic instruments or controllers, and get ready to jam out to these songs come Tuesday, October 16th.

LIVE REVIEW - Flight For Life Benefit & KBCO 35th Anniversary Concert (Featuring Amos Lee & Sheryl Crow) – October 6th
Review by Karson Brown
Photo copyright: J.Mimna Photography 2012
Sheryl Crow: Steel guitar and Country infused melodies were laced into Sheryl Crow’s classic songs on Saturday. Guitars a’ blazing, Crow came out with the enthusiastic “Steve McQueen” and the once chilled out crowd rose to their feet. I watched as one gentleman sitting in the floor seats literally kicked off his shoes and began to dance barefoot in the isle. He managed to recruit many others to join his animated dance party which continued throughout the entire concert.
Although it was a half full venue, you would never have noticed it in Sheryl Crow’s performance or the way the fans celebrated her. Hit after hit she sang like it was her first night on stage. Her energy was infectious and each song had such unspoiled delivery and excitement that the crowd was alive with enthusiasm. Despite the slightly awkward seating in the venue and the distraction of the heavily enforced “No Photography” policy, (including cell phone cameras) it didn’t seem like anything could stop this group form kicking up their heels, or from sneaking in a photo or two.
Crow spoke of her love of Colorado that began when as a child when she would visit her family in Glenwood Springs. She also mentioned that our state was one of the first to play her debut album Tuesday Night Music Club, and that she loved travelling around Colorado and sharing her music. She also spoke of how honored she was to be supporting a great cause like Flight For Life.
Well known songs like “Can’t Cry Anymore,” “Favorite Mistake,” “All I Wanna Do,” and “A Change Would Do You Good,” created a feeling of listening to a live greatest hits album that spanned over nearly two decades and several different genres of music. Sheryl Crow has that appeal and talent that keeps her relevant and the gracious attitude that keeps her fans right in her back pocket.

NEWS - Tax Breaks and Loopholes
Sheryl is featured, along with Mark Zuckerberg and other personalities, in an article of the SF Weekly about tax breaks and loopholes.
8. The Sheryl Crow loophole.
It pays to have low friends in high places. Six years ago, legislators from Tennessee, Kentucky, and Texas wanted to reward the musicians providing the star power to their fundraisers. So they passed a law allowing songwriters to avoid income taxes and sell their publishing catalogs at capital gains rates.
Suddenly, Nashville's elite could not only avoid the taxes everyone else must pay, they could also skirt their Social Security and Medicare bills. Three years later, Sheryl Crow sold her publishing rights to one of Australia's largest banks for nearly $10 million. Her estimated savings courtesy of this congressional giveaway: $2 million.
The law, however, curiously omitted other creative types who weren't playing politicians' rallies. Authors, for example, still must pay standard income taxes for selling their copyrights. The same goes for painters, photographers, screenwriters, and sculptors.
LIVE REVIEW - Flight For Life Colorado 40th Anniversary Concert - 6 Oct.
Review by John DiTurro
When you think of Sheryl Crow you can't help but think of a survivor. And with October being Breast Cancer Awareness month, Sheryl ranks right up there with survivors. Not only has she survived breast cancer, as well as a brain tumor. She has also survived the replaceable Lance Armstrong. She has survived the ever changing world of music. New artists making their marks in the music industry does not bother Sheryl. In fact she welcomes them to the industry. She has stuck to her roots and has been creating some of the best music ever performed. Sheryl played a lot of the old songs that have made her famous and introduced the crowd to some new music from her seventh album "100 Miles From Memphis". She opened the concert by singing "Steve McQueen" which had a huge impact on the crowd. This was just a jump start to an amazing night.
Sheryl Crow had the First Bank Center in Broomfield, CO Saturday night jamming in aisles and the concourse. In attendance were the men and women of Flight For Life. These brave individuals were celebrating 40 years of saving life's in some of the most dangerous situations.
Her seventh album "100 Miles From Memphis" showed that she can still entertain her fans. For the nine-time Grammy winner, this album is a long awaited piece of work that takes Sheryl back to her roots in Kennett, Missouri.
Sheryl showed her emotional side while performing some of the songs from "100 Miles From Memphis". Talking in between songs, she spoke about her family, friends, and her manager Scooter Weintraub whom she started with twenty years ago.
Sheryl Crow is a lady who is not afraid to take chances. She drives her own car in the video "Steve McQueen" and shows her toughness on stage. Sheryl has come along way and has survived obstacles that have made her stronger, more entertaining and just an all around great musician and person. This strength from Sheryl and the Flight For Life team in the same venue proved to be an amazing success.

LIVE PSEUDO-REVIEW - Flight For Life Colorado 40th Anniversary Concert - 6 Oct.
By Jeremy Meyer
Sheryl Crow has a standing performance agreement that was announced to the half-filled 1stBank Center Saturday night at the benefit concert for Flight For Life Colorado – no photographs, videotaping and especially no cell phone shots.
This immediately puts most concertgoers and ushers in a bind. The de rigueur these days is to hold up the phone, post the photo to Facebook, share with your friends that you have a life. No explanation was given to why the 50-year-old Crow refuses to have her photo taken on stage. Frankly, you could have turned your back on the band and still gotten the benefits from her hit-filled show that leaned heavily on her 19-year-old debut album, “Tuesday Night Music Club.”
Despite the photo ban, fans seemed to eat up everything Crow offered. Crow’s music straddles country and KBCO-style pop-rock, making her kind of the female Jimmy Buffett. One new song, “Shotgun,” was a rave up and could likely be another hit. Even a song, “Real Gone,” from the Disney/Pixar film, “Cars,” had people up and dancing (sans camera phone, of course).
NEWS - The String Cheese Incident, Sheryl Crow, Trombone Shorty, The Blind Boys of Alabama and More to Join Warren Haynes at Christmas Jam

NEW PIC - Super Sheryl - by JenniLee Stylist : OnceWhenIWas
It’s weird, I don’t get shy around musicians at all but get me near photographers I admire and I tend to be a bit quiet and reserved. It was so easy to be comfortable working with Sheryl; she was gracious, down to earth and all around lovely. Ben had a crew of super cute and friendly assistants and he had the best energy on set but I never let him know how I was so very excited to work with him. (Now I am saying it, at the comfort of my keyboard!)"

NEWS - Sheryl Covers Bloomingdale's Pink Book
Sheryl Crow is the cover girl for Bloomingdale’s sixth-annual Pink Book arriving in mailboxes starting Monday, which kicks off the store’s October campaign to fight breast cancer. Inside the 27-page catalogue, Crow discusses her bout with breast cancer, plus her upcoming Broadway musical adaptation of the movie “Diner,” her two adopted children and making music.
Photographed by Ben Watts, the 50-year-old Crow models three outfits with items from Joie, Bella Dahl, Equipment and Rag & Bone. “Someone like me shouldn’t be diagnosed with breast cancer, that’s what was going through my mind,” Crow says in the interview. “I wasn’t thinking about a diagnosis. I was just doing what I was supposed to do, which was staying on top of my mammograms. It was a shock.”
The Pink Book also has a tribute to the late Evelyn Lauder, founder of the Breast Cancer Research Foundation, by author, cartoonist, philanthropist and cancer survivor Marisa Acocella Marchetto; a spread on doctors and researchers in cancer research, and an array of products to earn points and contribute dollars to the cause. Aside from the book, the Bloomingdale’s campaign covers store and online activities and partners with the Estée Lauder Cos. Inc., the BCRF and grass-roots organizations such as Breast Oasis, The Cancer Vixen Fund and The Tutu Project. “Bloomingdale’s is proud to do our part in continuing Evelyn Lauder’s passionate quest to not only end breast cancer but prevent it,” said Michael Gould, chairman and chief executive officer of Bloomingdale’s, which since 2005 has raised more than $4 million for BCRF.
