Singer/songwriter Sheryl Crow is featured in the latest ish of Southern Living and in the story, she talked about her recent move to Nashville and the release of her first country album, as well as why she seeks out antiques. She offers up a very interesting perspective, that's for sure.
On Nashville: "When I moved here, it was the first time I felt like I found my home. I'm surrounded by people in the industry who approach their lives in a way where [the music] is work, it's a job. It's something that we love doing, but what comes first is family and community, and that's what keeps this town feeling real to me."
On Her First Country Album: "Brad Paisley was instrumental in getting this album made. He's just been a huge support system. He and his wife are my close friends, and our kids play together, so we have a strong bond outside of music. He came up to me and said, ‘You've really got to do this.'"
On Southern Tradition: "As a Southern woman, I'm trying to raise my kids the way my mom brought us up: feeding them healthy food, teaching manners, giving them a connection to the earth, and instilling a sense of what's right and wrong. I think of all that as Southern tradition, but I hope it's a tradition all across the board."
On Antiquing: "If I wasn't a musician, I would own an antiques store. I love looking for stuff with a story, especially early-American pieces."
