Spotify teamed up with the Americana Music Association and Sheryl Crow to present a truly memorable performance “AmericanaFest & Spotify Present Sheryl Crow and Friends” at Cannery Ballroom. The event, Spotify’s first with Americanafest, officially kicked off the 20th annual six-day festival with an all female lineup in Nashville.
The nine-time Grammy winner performed songs from her newly released album “Threads”, alongside some of her beloved hits. She kicked off the event with timeless classic, “If It Makes You Happy,” prompting the crowd to dance and sing along.
Crow then teased, “I’ve been around for a long time but it makes me very excited because there is an incredible crop of young women coming up!” as special guest English singer and songwriter Jade Bird joined her on stage. Later, legendary Grammy Award winning artist Bonnie Raitt had the crowd roaring as she surprised everyone and sang their newly released song, “Live Wire,” alongside another Crow classic, “Strong Enough.” Fans rushed to the stage as Sheryl ended the event with yet another one of her hits, “Everyday Is A Winding Road.”
The singer’s new album, “Threads,” which is slated to be her final studio album, features an incredible array of collaborations with country/Americana stars, ranging from Bonnie Raitt, Mavis Staples and Willie Nelson to Maren Morris, Jason Isbell and Gary Clark Jr. You can stream it now on Spotify here.
