    Sheryl Interview With Variety!

    “To thine own self be true” wasn’t just good advice in Shakespeare’s era. It’s also worked out well creatively for Sheryl Crow, whose ninth album, “Be Myself,” finds her returning to the power-rocking roots that come most naturally, on top of it being the self that audiences over the years have just happened to love most. After spending most of this century veering into musical detours that included not just an album called “Detours” but stylistic outliers like a recent country album, she’s back with a familiar but revitalized collection of hooky electric-guitar anthems that may be the earwigs album of the year for music fans of a certain classic-rock persuasion.

    Crow sat down with Variety to discussing the joys of returning to form, how she and the country format parted ways, her feelings about being a blue woman in a red state and nation, smartphone-less parenting, refusing to act her mid-50s age… and why she’s reluctantly giving up her favorite TV show, “House of Cards.” - Chris Willman, Music Writer, Variety
