On Friday Sheryl Crow's Guitar Was Country Before She Was was a top story. Here is the recap: (Gibson) Sheryl Crow may have transitioned to country music, but one thing she hasn't changed is her go-to guitar. In an interview to be published in M Music & Musicians, the veteran singer-songwriter says her beloved vintage Gibson Country Western acoustic guitar is "all over" her new album.
"I've bought a lot of beautiful guitars but I always end up coming back to the 1964 Gibson Country Western," she says. "I call it the old money-maker, because all the hits I've ever had were written on that guitar. I play an original model - always keep it close by. Gibson made a signature model as well."
Crow is also often seen playing a Les Paul on-stage. Asked if she was concerned she might lose some long-time fans with Feels Like Home, her first foray into Nashville-based country, Crow said, "I think most of my fans are listening to country music now.
"I think they've typically always been into songwriting, real songs in the conventional sense of craftsmanship. Today's country format is where you hear the kind of music I've always made." - more on this story
