Sheryl Crow will release her first country album, Feels Like Home, on Sept. 10. Crow partnered with other songwriters such as Brad Paisley for the project, marking her first album of all co-written material. She worked on the album in Nashville where she lives.
“It wasn’t until I moved here that I realized what an amazing community it is,” Crow said. “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.”
Although Crow considers Feels Like Home to be her first country album, she has charted several country singles, including “Picture” with Kid Rock, “Building Bridges” with Brooks & Dunn and “What You Give Away” with Vince Gill. She also landed a Top 40 country hit in 2003 with “The First Cut Is the Deepest.” Her current single is “Easy.”
