Franklin, TN – Sheryl Crow has enlisted an “A-list” roster to join her in concert next week at the historic Franklin Theatre to benefit New Hope Academy. Several friends – including Brad Paisley, Amy Grant, Darius Rucker, Eric Pasley and Charlie Worsham – were recently announced to join Ms. Crow on successive nights.

“It’s amazing to live in a community with so many creative people that support one another. We’re blessed to have an institution like New Hope Academy dedicated to providing extraordinary educational opportunities while including a diverse student base, including the underprivileged,” says Ms. Crow. “These shows are one way I contribute personally and also invite my fans to help foster their success.”
New Hope is a unique non-profit school in Franklin promising an excellent, classical education with a special mission for the underprivileged. This is Ms. Crowe’s third series of shows to help raise resources and awareness for the school.
Crow has released eight studio albums with sales in excess of 35 million around the world. She has performed duets with a diverse list of luminaries such as Sting, Loretta Lynn and Mick Jagger and her most recent album, Feels Like Home, captures the sound of a great and established artist enjoying a kind of fresh start. It features songs on which Crow collaborated with her longtime guitar player and frequent co-writer Jeff Trott (with whom she co-wrote such past Crow classics as “If It Makes You Happy,” “My Favorite Mistake” and “Every Day Is A Winding Road”), as well as great Nashville songwriters such as Chris DuBois, Luke Laird, Natalie Hamby and Chris Stapleton, among others. Crow now counts a Top 20 solo country single to her long list of accolades and her current single, “Callin’ Me When I’m Lonely,” is Top 40 and climbing.
Sheryl has expanded her talents with film and television appearances, as a book author and, most important, as mother of two sons (Wyatt and Levi). Her family now makes their home in the Franklin area.
Tickets ($125 and up) are on sale to the public at the Franklin Theatre box office (419 Main Street, Franklin, TN), online at www.franklintheatre.com/tickets/music/ or by calling 615-538-2076.
