Sheryl Crow Admits She Still Feels Star Struck

In an interview with Cody Alan, Sheryl Crow admits that she still finds herself entirely in awe around her celebrity friends. In fact, her collaboration-based album ‘Threads’ which is set to arrive on August 30, could have easily been called “Star Struck.” 

“This album should be called Star stuck because it’s got so many of those people on it,” said Sheryl. “I am the geeky kid who had all of the albums, that laid on the floor and listened to them on the big record player and read the album notes. I’m still that person.”

“I get really geeked out by Mick Jagger. There are some people now that I would still be like that with but I have sung with them so much that its almost familial. Even Stevie [Stevie Nicks], even though she is a really dear friend. Every once in a while I have that moment where I go, ‘Oh my gosh! That’s the girl in the ballet slippers.’” 

“I also get geeked out over some of these new kids, like Maren [Maren Morris]. It’s fun to be around somebody that has that star energy.”

Sheryl reunites with almost all of her musical friends featured on her album, 'Threads' for a special edition of CMT Crossroads. CMT Crossroads: Sheryl Crow & Friends will premiere on CMT on September 27.
