– 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.

"I couldnt 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."
