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.

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."
