Sheryl Crow is on a tour of country music radio stations around the U.S. She's visiting with DJs, playing a few songs live, then hitting the next city. She tells Readingeagle.com it reminds her of a scene from Coal Miner's Daughter, the life story of Loretta Lynn.
“It really is like the scene where Doo zips up Loretta’s dress and she runs in with her new acetate, her 45, and says, ‘Here’s my new record,’ and she plays something on air, shakes a few hands and leaves,” Crow said. “It really is a throwback to that, and it's the most organic thing I've done in years.”
It makes sense. It was Lynn’s handwritten note asking Crow to appear with the honky-tonk queen on the 2010 Country Music Association Awards that started her country journey. Crow’s new song “Easy” is already on high-rotation on country radio and Crow releases her first country-oriented album Feels Like Home on Sept 10. The album’s songs are co-written by Chris Dubois and Jeff Trott among others, and Brad Paisley co-wrote and plays guitar on “Waterproof Mascara.”
