Crow goes "Home" in September
Monday, May 27, 2013
– Sheryl Crow will release her country debut, "Feels Like Home," on Sept. 10 on Warner Bros. Records.
The disc features the single, Easy, which is currently Top 20 and climbing. All dozen songs were co-written with another songwriter, which is a first for Crow, including Brad Paisley. Crow will perform the single tonight on NBC's The Voice at 9 p.m. eastern/Pacific.
"It wasn't until I moved here that I realized what an amazing community it is," said Crow of working on "Feels Like Home" in Nashville. "It's the thing I've been missing my whole career, the feeling of being able to sit around with a guitar and have people know each other's songs and know songs from people who've influenced all of us. When I moved here pretty early on, Vince Gill started calling me to do guitar pulls, and I thought, gosh, this is just like heaven on earth down here."

But Crow is more country influenced than an outright country disc. Crow, who co-produced with Justin Niebank, sprinkles the songs with pedal »»»
Editorial: Walking the talk
When names like Hank Williams, Johnny Cash, Waylon and the Hag are invoked, you're talking hard core country. These are the touchstones of country , the guys who made country music what it was and still is (or maybe can be). When these folks would sing about being down-and-out and the rough-and-tumble, they knew of what they were singing about. Fast forward a few years to the country singers of today. »»»
Concert Review: Bentley brings the A-listers
Dierks Bentley's Valentine's Day "Burning Man World 2019 Tour" stop celebrated his album, "The Mountain," one of his best full-lengths to date.
