Crows brings the guitar

Heinz Field, Pittsburgh, October 30, 2013
Reviewed by Michael Rampa

With the Pittsburgh Steelers sitting at 2-5, their home venue was in need of some excitement. Heinz Field's Great Hall finally got it when Sheryl Crow headlined the benefit "Girls With Guitars" show. While Danielle Bradbery, Sara Evans, Kellie Pickler and local favorite Sara Marince were billed as co-headliners, they proved to be a quartet of openers for the far more seasoned Crow.

Indeed, Bradbery, Pickler and Marince are platinum blonde carbon copies with virtually interchangeable, albeit excellent, huge voices.

Marince showcased her power by performing a cover of Martina McBride's Where Would You Be that the superstar would have been proud of.

17-year old season four "The Voice" winner Bradbery used her 25 minutes to showcase cuts from her upcoming Nov. 27 debut release. The single Heart Of Dixie was a raucous romp, while Who I Am was tender and empowering.

Pickler's set had one of the funniest concert moments in recent memory. An enthusiastic fan walked uninvited right on to the surprisingly accessible stage to perform an impromptu duet of Best Days Of Your Life. The obviously shocked Pickler took it in stride, letting the enraptured fan even take the mic for several verses.

The beautiful and charismatic Sara Evans knows a thing or two about headlining and hit making. The 42-year old showcased number ones Real Fine Place and Born To Fly for an opening one-two punch. Guitarists Frank Wilson and Bill McClaren proved to be the most capable of the evening.

Superstars carry themselves differently and there is an energy about them that is unique. When Crow parted the crowd flanked by security, the atmosphere filled with confidence and familiarity. She has touched everyone in some way through her timeless songs and very public battle with cancer and brokenrelationships. She makes fans exude the confidence to foot stomp and clap to the infectious riff of My Favorite Mistake or shed tears during the heartbreaking favorite Picture.

For a show billed as "Girls With Guitars," Crow was the only artist that actually played one. She injected some levity, saying "You all know about the music business and realize I never would have gotten this far without this rack."

Confident self-deprecation about serious personal issues further endears her to fans. The finale featured each artist performing once. Crow's Picture was the unsurprising highlight.

With two reality show winners on the bill (Pickler, "American Idol" and Bradbery, "The Voice"), the evening was more of a pop showcase with a country bent. Given her massive success on the pop charts, even Crow's affiliation with country is tenuous. However, with her roots rock background and guitar prowess, she was the closest this power packed quintet came. No matter where you classify her, Crow fits in at the top anywhere.

LIVE REVIEW/PIX- Y108's Girls with Guitars - Pittsburgh, PA - 30 October

Girls rocked the North Shore

By Scott Tady
www.timesonline.com

PITTSBURGH -- Standing on stages a parking lot apart Wednesday, Sheryl Crow and Taylor Momsen both had something to prove.

Crow, 51, hoped to establish she's now a country singer.

Momsen, 20, wanted to show she can rock out as a headliner.

By night's end, both women accomplished their missions.

It made for a memorable evening along Pittsburgh's North Shore for the separate "Girls With Guitars" country concert in a cavernous Heinz Field lounge, and hard-rock band The Pretty Reckless commanding the cozy confines of the nearby Club at Stage AE.

A look back at both shows:

SOMETHING TO CROW ABOUT

"Girls With Guitars," run by Pittsburgh country station Y108, featured a stellar lineup of five female songbirds -- Crow, Sara Evans, Kellie Pickler, NBC "The Voice" champion Danielle Bradbery and Moon Township's Sarah Marince -- performing acoustic sets.

It was a coming-out-party of sorts for the nine-time Grammy winning Crow, who acknowledged to 1,300 spectators, most of whom won their tickets from Y108, that she was the "new kid in school."

Rocking a sleeveless gray-blue top and snug slacks adorned with Southwestern bling -- still no "mom jeans" for her -- Crow started her set with something familiar and a surprise, bringing back preceding act Evans to harmonize on Crow's 1998 hit "My Favorite Mistake."

Crow then sang the single from her month-old country album, "Easy," a laid-back ode to "staycations."

"It's only rock 'n' roll," Crow remarked, before adding the punchline, "Wait, I can't say that anymore."

She sang another of her new country tunes, "Give It To Me," describing it as a good old-fashioned love song, though delivering it with a hint of suggestiveness that seems to be a growing trend for the genre (and not a bad thing).

Crow saluted the concert's charity auction benefiting Glimmer of Hope, which raises money for breast cancer research. Crow reminded the crowd she was a breast cancer survivor, before earning a sizable laugh with a joke about how a "big rack" is crucial for women to endure in today's music business.

A wisecrack like that might not work so well at the Opry.

Though Crow's country singing Wednesday seemed natural, and never pandering, she didn't go overboard with the twang. Though she earned the biggest cheer of her set with her pop-rock rendering of the Cat Stevens-penned "The First Cut Is the Deepest."

"Girls With Guitars" hit the ground running with an engaging set by Marince, best-known as the Eat'n Park spokesmodel, and national anthem singer at Pittsburgh sporting events.

Marince was a vocal powerhouse, twice earning mid-song applause for the notes she hit and held during one of her country singles, "Can't a Girl Change Her Mind."

The 17-year-old Bradbery performed next, capturing the crowd's collective heart with her sweet demeanor and potent voice. She premiered a few cuts from her Nov. 25 debut, including "Never Like This," which sounded like a future hit.

Next came former "American Idol" finalist Kellie Pickler, whose quirky humor, animated facial expressions and crowd rapport lit up the stage. Her free-spirited new single "Little Bit Gypsy" was one of the night's standouts.

Pickler called onto the stage a fan she had met in the meet-and-greet, New Brighton country singer Dawn Savage, who stole the spotlight with terrific shared and lead vocals on "Best Days of Your Life." Pickler's wide-eyed reaction and grin mirrored the response of spectators stunned by Savage's vocal skills.

Then it was Evans' turn. The 42-year-old Missouri native bragged about the St. Louis Cardinals, prompting a smattering of boos (but not nearly enough). She tried relating to the family-oriented crowd by chatting about the seven kids she and her second husband are raising. A couple times, though, her pull-over top slipped down past a shoulder, calling to mind the later-career makeover that emphasized her sexiness. She's got a great voice, which she showcased on "Suds in a Bucket," her 2000 breakout "Born to Fly," and a brand new single, "Slow Me Down."

The show ended with all five women, and a few of their guitarists, on stage together. Marince started them off, singing solo on a choice cover, "I Never Promised You a Rose Garden," with Crow seated in the stool behind her, nodding approval. Bradbery followed with Carrie Underwood's "Jesus Take the Wheel."

Wish I could have stuck around to the very end, but Momsen and her band, the Pretty Reckless, were preparing to take the stage at the venue next door.

PRETTY RECKLESS NIGHT

Orgasmic cries pumped from the speaker stacks as the Club at Stage AE house lights dimmed, and the Pretty Reckless took their positions.

For the next hour, the Momsen-fronted band ripped through a raw, full-throttle set of hard-rock that lacked any lulls.

Momsen, the ex-"Gossip Girl" actress, showed she's got a strong and clear set of pipes, a requisite to be heard above the Audioslave-like din of her bandmates Ben Phillips (guitar), Mark Damon (bass) and Jamie Perkins (drums).

Moreover, Momsen was a riveting frontwoman, spinning around the club's tiny, barely elevated stage, slapping fives with fans pressed closely to the action. She's got that hair-flip then leave-it-in-your-eyes move down to a science.

Sporting a short strapped dress and leggings both as black as the makeup raccooning her eyes, Momsen cracked several smiles amid songs about love being hell.

"Hit Me Like a Man," set-opener "Follow Me Down" and another new one, "Sweet Things" were revved-up Halloween eve treats, though the band's best song might have been the slower, bluesy and more open-spaced "Cold Blooded."

ANOTHER VIEW

The Times' Brandy Hadden was in the pit for Momsen and gives this female perspective:

"Devil’s night? It was more like woman’s night. Or both, depending on how you view women. TPR and its supporting bands Louna and Heaven’s Basement put on the best rock show I’ve seen in a long time.

"Momsen was every bit as good as I thought she would be. I could feel the raw power that emanated from her. She slithered along the fine line between interacting with fans and being sexy and untouchable. She commented on the girls dressed as zombies in the front row (one as a zombie-wrecking ball Miley Cyrus) as she intro’d her song 'Zombie,''' Hadden said.

"The scratchy bellows of her voice just oozed with rock 'n' roll to the point that I was reminded of Janis Joplin. Different styles, but the passion is the same. Momsen is a woman who rocks.

"She wasn’t the only woman rocking out Wednesday at the Club at Stage AE. Opening act Louna was led by frontwoman Lousine Gevorkian. Hailing from Moscow, Gevorkian quickly won the crowd over. It was like watching Rooney Mara in 'The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo' on stage. Just as powerful as Momsen, Gevorkian evoked the same energy making them two sides to the same devil.

"The middle band on the bill didn’t empower women so much as make them drool. Not to take anything away from their musical prowess, which was also proven, Heaven’s Basement is everything you should want in a band all wrapped up in long hair and British accents. But really, frontman Aaron Buchanon reminded me of a young Lou Gramm, because of the hair and the voice. He made sure the band made an impression, not that guitarist Sid Glover really needed help (his shirt was off by the end of the set). It was like watching Mark Wahlberg’s “Rock Star” in person, or a mix between Def Leppard and Alice Cooper, except refreshing," Hadden said.

"They left the crowd wanting more, finally satisfied when Momsen took the stage, capping off a night of young rock stars and a whole lotta women."in person, or a mix between Def Leppard and Alice Cooper, except refreshing," Hadden said.

Sheryl Crow 'makes you happy'


By Carl Nadig
Northern Star

DeKalb | Students soaked up the sun in late October at the Sheryl Crow show Saturday.

Crow and Gary Allan co-headlined the Convocation Center show as part of their Free and Easy Tour. Maggie Rose opened the night with Southern twang, honky-tonk blues and soul renditions from her recently released “Cut To Impress.” With an accompaniment of slide guitars, violins and a church organ, Rose and her band performed “I Ain’t Your Mamma.”

A recipient of nine Grammy awards, Crow stepped onstage just after Rose and her band concluded with “Preacher’s Daughter.”

“I got a feeling there’s a party going on right here in DeKalb,” Crow said from the stage, looking at the crowd before playing one of her earliest pop singles, “All I Wanna Do.”

Beginning the show with pop songs from the start of her musical career — “My Favorite Mistake,” “If It Makes You Happy” and “Soak Up The Sun” — Crow slowly transitioned into country.

After playing an electrical set embedded in soft rock ’n’ roll, Crow and her band added mandolins and violins and played from her newest studio album, “Feels Like Home.” During the acoustic performance, Crow incorporated musical mashups of her earliest single hits with other pieces, mixing her 1995 single “Can’t Cry Anymore” with “Picture,” a 2002 love ballad co-written with Kid Rock.

Mike Kurtis, a 25 year-old clinical lab science major, attended Crow’s concert with friends.

“She was great,” Kurtis said. “I always wanted to see her since I was 19.”


During a brief intermission, Crow spoke about her memories and friendship with songwriter Johnny Cash during a performance of “Redemption Day.” While an a capella recording of Cash played in the auditorium’s background, Crow sang along with the deceased “man in black.”

“I’ve always followed [Crow],” said Tasha Lawrence, 30, of DeKalb. “It doesn’t really matter what she’s doing. Whatever she does is awesome.”

Crow left the stage with the resonance of country music, leaving enough room and anticipation for country music artist Allan to continue the tour. Allan opened with hit single “Her Man” and closed the night after fans were cheering from their feet.

Dale Heights, 22-year-old art education major, attended the concert to see Allan’s performance.

“It’s fantastic,” Heights said. “It’s something to draw people in, even though there are very few students here tonight.”

- Meet & Greet: a sweet tale -
By Dolly Caravette McCarthy
(via Facebook)

"Yeah it was a sort of out of body experience meeting her last night. I had so much I wanted to say to her like how I spent an entire summer of my life listening to her music non-stop as I was about to make some real life-changing decisions. She, through her music and through her personal life was my inspiration for starting my own band.....starting my own business, capturing my dreams again, growing more stronger (mentally & physically)....challenging myself.....ultimately creating a happier me. At that time, I was lacking strong women to look up to in my personal life and Sheryl filled that gap. I wanted to high 5 her for all she had been through---health, boyfriend, career, etc. but we just shook hands, hugged and smiled at each other. No words. Just a female ---woman to woman connection. As I turned to walk away....I turned back and said how my daughters loved her and then I quickly walked away. I didn't want to hold up the line either or keep her from getting on stage (she was about to go on stage). I then said something to her manager about making another effort to be on The Dolly McCarthy Show and that was that. Sheryl is one of those people for me that comes into your life for a season, a reason and we learn and grow from them and life gets better because that person showed us what us little women are capable of if we believe and set our minds to it and go for it. My message today is to just go for it girlfriends!!!! Make your dreams happen! Thanks Sheryl!"

MAGAZINE - Paper Napkin Interview (Southern Living Magazine)

Dishing with Sheryl Crow
By Jennifer V. Cole
Photo: Mandy Johnson

Occupation: Singer/Songwriter/Musician

Hometown: Kennett, Missouri

What’s on her plate: The recent release of her first country album Feels Like Home, which includes the hit single “Easy”

When I started writing songs, my big inspirations were writers. I can remember my dad reading Pudd’nhead Wilson by Mark Twain, and I always thought Twain and Steinbeck were writers who could create a character that travels with you from beginning to end. Later I got into Townes Van Zandt and Bob Dylan and Leonard Cohen, all people who know how to tell a story.

If I wasn’t a musician, I would own an antiques store. I love looking for stuff with a story, especially early-American pieces. I like to drive around and find that big sign that says “Antiques” and pull in and see what they’ve got. Most recently I found an old transom, a piece of wood that probably went into a stairwell. God knows where I’m going to put it.

Having Johnny Cash record one of my songs was my biggest compliment as a songwriter. Talk about bringing weight to a song. He owned it. Afterward, he called me and asked if I liked his version and quizzed me about why I wrote “Redemption Day.” But we never got to sing it together. He died three months later.

Loretta Lynn opened the door. She gave permission to us female songwriters to write about what was really going on, to talk about things [in songs] that were uncomfortable or that were taboo.

Feels Like Home is an extension of songs people know me for—”If It Makes You Happy,” “Strong Enough”—and rock songs inspired by country music. It’s just more dedicated to country instrumentation: more pedal steel, more twangy guitars, more fiddles.

Brad Paisley was instrumental in getting this album made. He’s just been a huge support system. He and his wife are my close friends, and our kids play together, so we have a strong bond outside of music. He came up to me and said, “You’ve really got to do this. If your music came out now it would be released in the country format.”

Life is very normal in Nashville. When I moved here, it was the first time I felt like I found my home. I’m surrounded by people in the industry who approach their lives in a way where [the music] is work, it’s a job. It’s something that we love doing, but what comes first is family and community, and that’s what keeps this town feeling real to me.

I want my sons Wyatt (6) and Levi (3) to be philanthropists, to have a strong sense of compassion. And to be environmentalists, to leave their campsite looking nicer than the way they found it.

Twirling is at the top of the list of my hidden talents. Two days ago I went through the broom closet—I was sweeping the back porch because my parents were coming—and my baton was in there. My kids are at this age where everything is a gun. My 3-year-old picked up the baton and went, “Pow, pow, pow.” So I said, “Let me show you what this is really for.” And I did a little twirling.

I’ve always admired my mom. But now that I’m a mom, more than ever I admire how she raised four kids without any help. It’s tiring yet you want your kids to see you as joyful, and my mom was great at that. She was great at making us believe that she had it all together all the time.

As a Southern woman, I’m trying to raise my kids the way my mom brought us up: feeding them healthy food, teaching manners, giving them a connection to the earth, and instilling a sense of what’s right and wrong. I think of all that as Southern tradition, but I hope it’s a tradition all across the board.

PIX/REVIEW/SET LIST- Live in Moline, IL (with Gary Allan) - 17 October

---
Review by David Burke
Quad-City Times (QCtimes.com)

Somewhere along the way, the trajectory of Sheryl Crow and Gary Allan's genres switched paths.

Crow, a breezy pop princess for the past 20 years, has gone country, complete with a steel guitar in her live show.

Allan, while still in the country ranks, performs a concert with the intensity of a rock act, at least judging from the Thursday night show at the iWireless Center, Moline.

A smaller-than-expected audience of 4,500 grooved to Crow's songs and/or Allan's rough-edge country. While many in the audience overlapped as fans of the two, some apparently from Crow's flock left for any remainder of Allan's 75-minute set. It's uncertain how many, if any, called it a night after Allan's Bakersfield-esque show was over.

Allan entered to video and booming sound effects and lights replicating a thunderstorm, and that's how the pace that he and his band kept for the remainder of the night. Even his ballads, such as "Best I Ever Had," kept the same level of intensity of more upbeat songs such as "Nothing On but the Radio" and "Man to Man."

His clenched-fist intensity and cocky swagger served him through his hits (with the noticeable exception of "Songs About Rain") and songs from his most recent album, "Set You Free."

Allan's six-man band included some of the more interesting backup players seen in a while, including a fiddler dressed in orange sweatbands, an orange tuxedo T-shirt and lime-green pants, and a guitar player dressed in black Stetson and dress shirt, a kilt with multicolor circles and knee-high black socks.

Crow, on the other hand, looked resplendent in a leather vest and tight jeans accented with rhinestones.

After a video that included childhood photos, album and magazine covers and Crow on video and photos with a virtual Who's Who in all types of music. Her "Every Day is a Winding Road" led off a set that tacked 10-or-so minutes onto her scheduled 75. She changed the mood and mode of her set several times during the night, most noticably in a three-song acoustic set that included her 1994 hit "Strong Enough" (accented with an accordion and upright bass) as well as one of her album cuts, "Redemption Day," that was later recorded by Johnny Cash.

The late Cash's recording turned the song into a virtual duet. There was an actual duet with Allan, with him singing the Kid Rock part on their hit "Picture," but Allan appeared perturbed by his earplug monitor and was a half-beat slow in making his entrance. He did, however, score points with a Kid Rock impersonation on one line.

Crow came back for an encore, a credible cover of Led Zeppelin's "Rock 'n' Roll."

Newcomer Maggie Rose opened the show, including her singles, "I Ain't Your Momma" and "Better." Her band — three-fifths female, it should be noted — had enthusiastic players with tight harmonies. She showed some promise with a sound that's not a copy of current female acts.

REVIEW from Startribune.com
By Jon Bream

A few thoughts on BUZ’N 102.9 FM’s Girls with Guitars gig Tuesday at Mill City Nights featuring Sheryl Crow, Kellie Pickler, Gloriana, Maggie Rose and Ashley Monroe. It was a benefit for Park Nicollet’s Jane Brattain Breast Center.

  • What a fun evening – lots of personality, spontaneous chatter, free-wheeling humor,some pretty good music and a good cause.
  • Girls with Guitars for breast cancer is a terrific concept but a bit of a misnomer at this inaugural event. Only two of the five female singers played much guitar. It wasn’t a true guitar pull, as they call them in Nashville, because each artist had her own accompanists. And Gloriana is a male-fronted trio with a female secondary singer. The more accurate moniker would have been 4 Blondes and 1 Non-Blonde.  
  • Kellie Pickler is a hoot. And she’s twice as funny when she’s drinking, which she was. She made fun of her Minnesota in-laws (it was her father-in-law’s birthday) and their accents, her own North Carolina accent and people from Texas in the crowd. You can see why she is one of Ellen DeGeneres’ favorite guests.
  • The conversational highlight was the story about when Pickler and Gloriana, who toured together for two years, went out to celebrate a birthday in Austin, Texas, and Pickler and Gloriana’s Rachel Reinert got matching tattoos on their feet, and Pickler got a nose-ring. "My husband had to get a diamond [stud] out of my nose with a pair of pliers," she said.
  • On a serious note, Sheryl Crow, a breast cancer survivor, talked about the importance of mammograms, self-checking and knowing your family history. She was informative but not heavy-handed. Nicely done.
  • Gloriana – sort of the odd act out – let frontman Tom Gossin talk too much. Dude, this was Girls with Guitars. Not guys. At least, Crow fittingly dealt with her two male accompanists (one on guitar, the other on acoustic bass) by calling them her “chick magnets.”
  • Gloriana impressed with their three-part harmonies and their sing-along of the Lumineers pop hit, “Ho Hey.” Reinert gets credit for introducing the night’s favorite phrase: “douche-y ex’s.” Best number: “Carolina Rose.”
  • Wearing a striking black-and-white-striped long skirt, newcomer Maggie Rose was an appealing combination of sass and smarts. The Maryland-reared Rose scored extra points for bringing a fiddler, Natalie Murphy, from Minneapolis. Best number: “Ain’t Your Mama.”
  • Sheryl Crow triumphed with her humbleness (“I’m the new kid on the block”), class and credible country tunes. She also did a couple of her pop favorites. Best number: “Strong Enough” and “Callin’ Me When I’m Lonely”.
  • Pickler’s mouth was more memorable than her music. She always seemed to have a drink in her hand – or sometimes two when she held Ashley Monroe’s while the latter performed. Best number: “Red High Heels.”
  • Ashley Monroe won over the 900 club-goers with her spunk, spirit and humor – as well as her ace accompanist, Sarah Zimmerman on mandolin and acoustic slide guitar. Best number: “Heart Like Mine.”
  • Unlike true guitar pull tradition, there was little helping out and harmonizing on each other’s songs (only happened twice), and there was no big hootenanny at the end of the 2 ½-hour program. Put those ideas on next year’s list.

NEWS - Sheryl Crow Comments on Male-Dominated Country Music Charts



By Gayle Thompson
TheBoot.com

Sheryl Crow has sold more than 50 million albums, with over a dozen Top 20 hits in the past two decades. But with all her success, she admits she is dismayed by the lack of women who currently hold a position on the country charts.

“I do think that in the last ten, fifteen years art has gone the way of commerce,” she tells Broadway’s Electric Barnyard. “Whenever there’s money involved, then you figure out what’s going to bring in sponsors, and what’s going to resonate with people and what’s going to sell records.”

The 51-year-old understands people make music to make money, which is why she is quick to defend Luke Bryan after Zac Brown‘s now well-publicized criticism of Bryan and his latest single, ‘That’s My Kind of Night.’

“I think everybody’s entitled to their opinion,” Crow says. “There are a lot of great people of country. In music everywhere, throughout history, there’s been really meaningful stuff, there’s stuff that’s been just for the entertainment sake, and everybody has an opinion.”

Crow’s first country album, ‘Feels Like Home,’ was released last month on Warner Brothers Records. She will spend much of the fall on the road, promoting the new record, including shows in California, Illinois and Kentucky. See all of her upcoming shows here.

NEWS - Behind the Scenes with Sheryl Crow (Nashville Lifestyle)

Sheryl Crow’s Nashville
Written By: Nashville Lifestyles
Photographers: Tyler Stewart

Getting to sit down with Sheryl Crow is like getting to hang out with a good girlfriend. Here, she dishes out her favorite places to eat, shop, and give back.

Dining:

I love Margot Café, City House, Rolf and Daughters, Giovanni’s and Kayne Prime.

Family Friendly Dining:

We all enjoy Burger Up in 12South, then we get popsicles at Las Paletas and walk across the street to Sevier Park. It’s one of our favorite outings. We also love to get together with other families with kids at someone’s house and cook because we can let the kids run around outside.

Shopping:

H Audrey for clothes and accessories, Haven for the home. I don’t do mall shopping. I do lots of on line shopping and I shop at my photo shoots!


Girls’ Night Out:

Catbird Seat is a fun girl’s night, Patterson House for cocktails and 12South Taproom for an easy, casual night with friends.

With the boys:

We go to the Nashville Zoo a ton, we love it and there’s always something new. We like the Frist, they have that great kid’s activity area on upper level. We love going to Cheekwood because we can be inside and outside. The Treehouse exhibit was one of our favorites, so fun, and we always have to see the trains at Christmas.

Work-out:

I was a runner and still love it. I’m very active. We do something sporty every day. Whether it’s riding horses, bikes, being in the park, or swimming. People always ask about my arms. I attribute that to my guitar! Playing two hours every night is a pretty good arm workout.

Charity:

Locally, I support Tucker’s House. Tucker’s House, they retro-fit bathrooms and modify homes for kids growing up with disabilities and using wheelchairs. And I do an annual fundraiser for New Hope Academy.

Sheryl Crow goes country at House of Blues

The Boston Globe

Some lucky fans were treated to an intimate performance by Sheryl Crow at the Foundation Room at the House of Blues on Tuesday night. Presented by WKLB, the brief acoustic set for about 75 contest winners featured Crow and her two backup musicians — guitarist Peter Stroud and bassist and ace harmony vocalist Robert Kearns — playing a few tunes from her recent country crossover album, “Feels Like Home.” In addition to the country weeper “Waterproof Mascara” (co-written by Brad Paisley), her laid-back single “Easy,” and “Callin’ Me When I’m Lonely” (which she dubbed “your basic old-fashioned booty call song”), Crow played a couple of her big hits including “Strong Enough” and snippets of “If It Makes You Happy” and “Picture,” her duet with Kid Rock. The show was one of many special events that the Boston country station has been staging to commemorate its 20 years on the air.

NEWS - Sheryl Crow Talks Antiques, Nashville, Going Country + More

Singer/songwriter Sheryl Crow is featured in the latest ish of Southern Living and in the story, she talked about her recent move to Nashville and the release of her first country album, as well as why she seeks out antiques. She offers up a very interesting perspective, that's for sure.

On Nashville: "When I moved here, it was the first time I felt like I found my home. I'm surrounded by people in the industry who approach their lives in a way where [the music] is work, it's a job. It's something that we love doing, but what comes first is family and community, and that's what keeps this town feeling real to me."

On Her First Country Album: "Brad Paisley was instrumental in getting this album made. He's just been a huge support system. He and his wife are my close friends, and our kids play together, so we have a strong bond outside of music. He came up to me and said, ‘You've really got to do this.'"

On Southern Tradition: "As a Southern woman, I'm trying to raise my kids the way my mom brought us up: feeding them healthy food, teaching manners, giving them a connection to the earth, and instilling a sense of what's right and wrong. I think of all that as Southern tradition, but I hope it's a tradition all across the board."

On Antiquing: "If I wasn't a musician, I would own an antiques store. I love looking for stuff with a story, especially early-American pieces."
