Sheryl Crow goes "Easy" on Kimmel

Friday, January 25, 2013 – Sheryl Crow debuted her country song Easy, the first single from her forthcoming Warner Music Nashville debut last night Jimmy Kimmel Live! This album marks the first new music from Crow in over two years and her debut on Warner.

Crow sported a Nudie style jacket, while laying acoustic guitar. The approximately four-minute song also featured pedal steel guitar and electric guitars.

"I couldn’t be more happy or proud than to have Sheryl join us and become a wonderful part of Warner Bros. Records' rich musical history," said John Esposito, President and CEO of Warner Music Nashville in a statement prior to the show. "She is an incredibly special artist whose songwriting and performances are beyond magical. Sheryl has made a masterpiece that we know country radio and fans from all across the world are going to love.”

"I'm excited that my country debut album will be released on Warner Bros. Records," expressed Crow of her upcoming release. "I believe a lot of my songs would probably be played on country radio today if they were just being released. The country music community has been incredibly welcoming, and I'm excited to work with John Esposito and his team at Warner Music Nashville."

Crow has one country hit to her credit, Picture, a duet with Kid Rock from his album "Cocky."

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. »»»

Trampled by Turtles get wild Trampled By Turtles is an indie folk group, an alt.-country band or a bluegrass act - depending on how you choose to look at them. Perhaps it's best to view the outfit as the ultimate combo platter consisting of just about everything that's good about American music. They play wonderfully, yet they also write intelligent songs that draw everyone from Townes Van Zandt to Nirvana to Ralph Stanley. It's all good, and some (or all) of these influences can be spotted in most of Trampled By Turtles' enjoyable sounds.... »»»
Don't try labeling Parker Millsap If you move in alt.-country/Americana circles, you simply cannot get away from the name Parker Millsap. He's certainly one of the biggest buzz artists of 2014. Better still, his self-titled album lives up to all the hype. He's a smart songwriter and a passionate singer and is essential listening for anybody looking for high quality contemporary music. Millsap also creates music appealing to a wide variety of musical tastes. You can make a case that he's a country guy, but you can also hear a lot of blues and folk. And if you attempt to put a label on him, he'll quickly tear it right off.... »»»
