Sheryl Crow finds new 'home' in country music's Nashville
NASHVILLE, Tennessee (REUTERS) - Sheryl Crow has spent the past seven years living the country life in country music's capital with her country music friends, but the Grammy-winning rocker has only now come around to recording a country music album.
Feels Like Home, which will be released on Sept 10, is the culmination of the 51-year-old mother of two's latest musical conversion, this time into a country singer.
"This album feels very natural," Crow said in an interview at her 20 ha estate on the outskirts of Nashville, where she keeps 11 horses, two head of longhorn cattle and dogs.
"It's an extension of who I am, where I live. It doesn't seem like too big of a departure. I've been absorbed into the city limits of Nashville." But it was just 20 years ago when Crow catapulted to pop-rock radio sensation with All I Wanna Do, proclaiming that "all I want to do is have some fun until the sun comes up over Santa Monica Boulevard," the street that traverses Los Angeles.
