An Evening With Sheryl Crow

Already an icon of American popular music, Sheryl Crow lives and learns. The only difference between Crow and most of us is that her path took her into the rarefied air of celebrity. Along the way she earned nine GRAMMY Awards, chalked up more than 35 million album sales worldwide and broke the platinum barrier with five albums. Music fueled this journey -- unforgettable songs that chart the milestones she passed, address issues that concerned her and her peers or, sometimes, set all that aside just to rock out. Her new album, Be Myself, reflects Crow's commitment to looking at life without illusion and responding to what she finds with honesty and artistry. Over a raw, pared-down instrumental bed she sings with the conviction her fans have long celebrated, addressing the virtues of solitude in the wake of a broken relationship ("Alone in the Dark"), humorously recounting her sense of disorientation in the social media maze ("Be Myself") and playfully extolling an occasional escape from its entanglement ("Rollerskate"), mourning the fissures that divide us from others ("Halfway There") … even forecasting the results and predicting the consequences of last year's presidential election ("A Heartbeat Away"), with a prescient reference to a "man with a red face with his finger on the button … as he ponders the eternal on his private jet." Be Myself just might be the album that brings us all back to that place, back to our wellsprings as Crow has returned to hers. The GRAMMY Museum is pleased to welcome Sheryl Crow for a discussion on her latest album, Be Myself, followed by an intimate performance. The evening will be hosted by Scott Goldman, Executive Director of the GRAMMY Museum. A live stream of this program will be available to view on our Facebook page at the time of the event.
