Pop-turned-country singer Sheryl Crow performed a new song entitled "Best of Times" for the Live Room at Ocean Way Studios in Nashville, TN. "Best of Times" is an uptempo country song from her eighth studio album, Feels Like Home, due out on September 10th. The video of the performance captures the song's energy and the fun the band has in playing it. Sheryl Crow described the inspiration behind the "Best of Times" to Rolling Stone:
And after tragic events like Newtown, I have found myself asking if our best days are behind us now. Because I have a four-year-old and a six-year-old now, I feel like I can't afford to think that way. But that sort of big question is behind this song – which I was proud to write with Al Anderson of NRBQ fame and Leslie Satcher. For me, 'Best of Times' is also inspired by all the talk about the Mayan calendar and our world ending, and our yearning for a simpler and safer world.
Feels Like Home will be her first country album. Sheryl Crow calls it the "most focused album" she's ever made, and says that Feels Like Home "definitely has a few different takes on what country music means to me, but not calculatedly so. First and foremost, I just wanted to make sure that for this album I wrote about things I really knew about – subjects that hit close to home."
Look for the new record on September 10th.
