Sheryl Crow has been on the music scene for over 20 years, deftly weaving her hits through influences from various genres. There’s always been a strong undercurrent of country in her work though, and after moving to Nashville eight years ago, she’s finally embracing it fully.
Feels Like Home, Crow’s new album out this week, is the singer’s head-first dive into making a country record – not just in the music itself. The production of the album owes credit to a who’s-who in the country world. Brad Paisley encouraged Crow to record the album, it was mixed at Martina McBride’s studio and Vince Gill lends guest vocals on “Give It To Me.” As if that weren’t enough to establish her country credibility, Crow embraces a standard of the genre: the drinking song. Fans should take note of “We Ought to Be Drinking” – Crow considers it to be a sister song to her first hit, “All I Wanna Do.”
You can experience the country-fied Crow on the road this fall. She’s touring with Gary Allen, who earned his first No. 1 album on the Billboard 200 chart earlier this year. Pull out your cowboy boots and find dates near your city today!
