Sheryl Crow Is Currently Working On A New Country Album with Brad Paisley. Sheryl Crow is by no means a new face on the music scene, but she has been spending a lot more time on the country side of things recently. She has recorded two songs with Kid Rock, performed “Coal Miner’s Daughter” with Loretta Lynn and Miranda Lambert at the CMA Awards and is also featured on Brad Paisley’s upcoming album. It seems all these baby steps are leading her to a bigger plunge, recording her own all country album. “I already had a pretty strong country influence in my music. You listen to ‘Strong Enough’ and ‘If It Makes You Happy’’, there’s a lot of country influence in there already, but there’s just no pedal steel and no fiddle. The lyrics are nearing what I consider straightforward country lyrics; they’re a little left of center…I’m working on it right now. I’m doing some work with Brad Paisley. I’ve been doing a lot of writing. Hopefully it’ll be out early next year.” -Sheryl Crow Well, we look forward to seeing what you come up with, Sheryl, especially if Brad Paisley is involved!!

Jonathan Cohen, N.Y. Sheryl Crow will return Feb. 5 with her next A&M/Interscope album, “Detours.” The first single, “Shine Over Bayblon,” is at iTunes now. Crow told Billboard.com this summer that the song “is very environmentally conscious, in the tradition of Bob Dylan.” “I’m really encouraging artists to write about what’s going on, because we seem to be very distracted by some lightweight topics,” she added. I think it’s time to start writing about the reality of what’s around us.” In additional comments on her Web site, Crow describes the single as “an every way a desperate cry for understanding. Perhaps it is even a battle song in the face of fear.” “Detours” was recorded at Crow’s Nashville farm and will feature “14 or 15” of the 24 songs put to tape. The artist’s baby son, Wyatt, makes an appearance on the song “Lullaby for Wyatt,” which will be featured in the upcoming movie “Grace Is Gone.” “The songs are very inspired by the last three years of events in my life,” Crow said of a time that found her battling breast cancer and splitting with partner Lance Armstrong. “Detours” is the follow-up to 2005’s “Wildflower,” which debuted at No. 2 on The Billboard 200.Country Music Photo Gallery
