2013 release from the Grammy winner, the first Country record of her career. Each track on the album was co-written with another songwriter, which is a first for Crow, including Grammy award-winner Brad Paisley. "It wasn't until I moved here that I realized what an amazing community it is, " said Crow of working on Feels Like Home in Nashville, Tenn. "It s the thing I've been missing my whole career, the feeling of being able to sit around with a guitar and have people know each other's songs and know songs from people who've influenced all of us. When I moved here pretty early on Vince Gill started calling me to do guitar pulls, and I thought, gosh, this is just like heaven on earth down here. "

If you believe her title (and I believe you should), she feels quite at home in her country trappings, as well she should. Of all the major female artists of the 1990s, Sheryl Crow is the closest to country-rock. Her debut, Tuesday Night Music Club, could just as easily have been labelled as country-rock. (Listen to "Nobody Said It Would Be Easy" and don't tell me that that song could easily have been recorded for a country project.) Liz Phair, with "Exile in Guyville", would be the closest contender to a country-rock artist of the 1990s, although her subsequent albums give the feeling that "Exile" was more of an anomaly in her catalogue than anything else.
While "Feels Like Home" may have some great, killer hooks, there is a lot of substance behind that flashy production. Crow manages to tap into the emotionally charged, honesty-driven story-telling that vast amounts of people can relate to on a very real level which always distinguishes the best of country music, all the while retaining her pop sensibilities that made her such a star in the first place.
That's not to say "Feels Like Home" is perfect. The only time the album really gets off kilter is when Crow comes off as trying too hard to be country.Read more ›
Recorded in Nashville, the album saw Crow work with a group of local songwriters, such as Chris DuBois, Luke Laird and Natalie Hemby as well as her long-time collaborator Jeff Trott.
One of the songs co-written by Trott, Easy (the lead off single in the US), is perhaps not surprisingly closest to Crow's previous commercial output. But elsewhere, the Nashville influence is much more pronounced. Waterproof Mascara treads a fine line between heartfelt and parody, and narrowly manages to come down on the side of heartfelt. Homecoming Queen and Stay At Home Mother are two more bittersweet tales, both performed with clarity and a lack of sentiment.
Elsewhere, We Oughta Be Drinkin could be All I Wanna Do Part 2, presenting the same characters viewpoint twenty years later. There's some more upbeat songs too, like Best of Times and Nobody's Business, which balance out the album somewhat.
Overall this a solid collection of songs which should appeal both to Crow's long term fans as well as country music lovers. Having been dropped by her former record label after the release of her last album in 2010 it will be interesting to see both how this album is received and how it influences her subsequent career.
