article imageReview: Sheryl Crow has found her 'Home' in country music with new CD Special

By Markos Papadatos     Sep 14, 2013 in Entertainment
Sheryl Crow released her newest country album "Feels Like Home" on September 10, via her record label, Warner Music Nashville.
A nine-time Grammy-winning songstress, Crow co-produced the project with Justin Niebank and she co-wrote ten out of its 12 tracks.
The opening track "Shotgun" is strong with a neat tempo to it and it is followed by her lead-off single, the smooth "Easy," where sings about a stay-cation.
"Give it To Me" features Vince Gill and Ashley Monroe on backing vocals and "We Oughta Be Drinkin'" has a traditional country vibe to it.
The highlight track on the CD is the stellar ballad "Waterproof Mascara," which she co-wrote with country mega-star Brad Paisley and it would make an excellent choice for a follow-up radio single.
"Nobody's Business" is more upbeat and Zac Brown, the lead singer of the Zac Brown Band, joins her on harmonies on "Homesick."
"Homecoming Queen" also has potential to become a single in the future, which is the ultimate paradigm of her superb storytelling ability.
She chances the pace with the up-tempo "Best of Times" and it closes with the soothing "Stay At Home Mother," where she showcases her angelic vocals.
The Verdict
Sheryl Crow has certainly found her new "home" in country music with this record. It is evident that she co-produced and co-wrote an album that is from the heart. It is a very promising debut by one of pop and rock's music most decorated female vocalists. She conveys a lot of love towards the country genre and she connects well with her audiences.
It garners 4.5 out of 5 stars and this will be the album that will aid her in securing nominations for "Female Vocalist of the Year" at a future Academy of Country Music (ACM) or Country Music Association (CMA) awards ceremony. Well done Sheryl Crow.
