Sheryl Crow had already earned her rock-n-roll bona-fides by the time 2013 rolled around. She’d released several platinum selling albums and huge hits like All I Wanna Do and If It Makes You Happy. But then country came calling.
Crow was newly released from her longtime label and, faced with some newfound creative freedom, she took the advice of friend Brad Paisley and decided to record a country album. The project, called Feels Like Home, was an all-in effort on Crow’s part to explore the country genre and the single Easy became a top-ten country hit (in fact, the album is still great to listen to-Waterproof Mascara is so country you could imagine Loretta Lynn singing it). She even opened for George Strait on his tour in 2014.
Unlike fellow rocker Darius Rucker though, Crow’s walk through country was only temporary, and she soon moved back to her rocker roots.
But, it looks like she’s come back for one more quick stroll: Crow is finishing an album of collaborations called Threads and the lead-off single is what Rolling Stone refers to as a “country kiss off” song. It’s called Prove You Wrong and Crow’s collaborators are fellow female rock icon Stevie Nicks, and Maren Morris, a likely future music icon herself. Morris tweeted about the release and included a single “mind blown” emoji–which pretty much says it all.

Crow says this album, which also feature duets and collaborations with artists like Bonnie Raitt, Don Henley and, posthumously, Johnny Cash, will likely be her last. If Prove You Wrong is any indication, it’ll be a good one to go out on. Here’s the lyric video. See what you think…
