How Sheryl Crow Learned To 'Be Myself' | "Required Listening" Podcast
If all you wanna do is have some fun, then you're in luck. On the new episode of the GRAMMY Museum's "Required Listening" podcast, you'll get your dose and then some in the form of a compelling discussion with Sheryl Crow.
In a 40-minute-plus conversation with host Scott Goldman, the "If It Makes You Happy" singer/songwriter will take you inside the creation of her 2017 album, Be Myself. Crow discusses her frame of mind going into the album's creative process, how the political and social climates influenced her songwriting and why, as a mother, "scheduling inspiration" is imperative.
"Truth be told, [Be Myself] really is where I'm at. I feel like, 'Hey, I'm my age and I love it. And I don't want to be anybody else,'" the former Best New Artist GRAMMY wwinner said about the LP. "It's about acceptance."
The GRAMMY winner also shares her thoughts on her two-decade-plus creative journey, the importance of music teachers and music education, and why she is a big believer in tech detoxes.
"I actually did go through a detox period. I keep my phone on me but it's always on silent. When I'm with my kids, I don't have my phone on me," revealed Crow. "I will never regret missing phone calls or texts or any of that to be present and to model that for my children. Because there will be a point in our evolution as people on this planet where it is going to cause some major problems."
