Sheryl Crow won over the hearts of millions back in the '90s when she came out with hits like "All I Wanna Do," "Strong Enough," and "If It Makes You Happy." These honest songs about womanhood made her a fast role model and idol for teenaged girls across America who were drawn in by Crow's confidence, strength, and, of course, her killer vocals.
Crow embodied that mainstream-friendly strong woman of the '90s, like Fiona Apple and Alanis Morissette. The critics agreed with fans, and the singer/songwriter went on to win three Grammy Awards in 1995 after the release of her first studio album, Tuesday Night Music Club.
Crow's success continued; she's worked with the likes of Stevie Nicks, Michael Jackson, Prince, Sting, Kid Rock, and Willie Nelson, just to name a few. Celebrating the release of her new album, Feels Like Home, Crow is currently on the road with country-music heavyweights Rascal Flatts for the Rewind Tour.
The tour is named after Rascal Flatts' newest album, Rewind, which offered up twangy tunes like "Rewind" and "Payback." Similar to other country acts like the Dixie Chicks and Faith Hill, Rascal Flatts has been able to appeal to music listeners who aren't typically country fans as well as to the die-hard country lovers out there. Back in August, the band won the Jim Reeves International Award from the Academy of Country Music, one of many honors it's received over the span of its glistening career.
Having toured with Journey, Keith Urban, Blake Shelton, and Taylor Swift, these dudes already know how to put on one hell of a show. Clichés including cowboy hats, boots, and lots of denim are pretty much guaranteed at the show, which hits Cruzan Amphitheatre in West Palm Beach this Saturday for what's sure to be a night of heartfelt performances by two seasoned headliners.
Rascal Flatts. Rewind Tour with Sheryl Crow and Gloriana. 7:30 p.m. Saturday, September 13, at Cruzan Amphitheatre, 601-7 Sansbury's Way, West Palm Beach. Tickets cost $29.75 to $65.25 plus fees. Call 561-795-8883, or visit livenation.com.
