Sheryl Crow teamed up with Joshua Davis for a duet of Crow's song "Give It To Me" during Tuesday night's finale of NBC's "The Voice," pairing two down to earth singer-songwriters for one memorable performance. If you missed it, you can watch the rendition by using the media player included with this article.
"Give It To Me" originally appeared on Crow's first ever country music album, Feels Like Home, which was released in September 2013. The fourth track on the record, it was co-written by Crow and featured guest vocals by Vince Gill and Pistol Annies' Ashley Monroe.
Featuring the singles "Easy," "Callin' Me When I'm Lonely" and "Shotgun," Feels Like Home performed solidly for the singer, peaking at number seven on the Billboard 200 and number three on the magazine's Top Country Albums Chart. It also registered on Canadian, Belgian, Dutch, French, Hungarian, Irish, Scottish, Swiss and British charts, including becoming a number one hit on the UK Country Albums Chart.
Crow had previously appeared on "The Voice" during season four, when she was the battle rounds advisor for Team Blake. Since the beginning of her foray into country music, she has opened for George Strait on his 2014 The Cowboy Rides Away Tour, joined Rascal Flatts on their Rewind Tour that same year, and co-hosted the Austin City Limits Festival's benefit concert last June.
She also guested on fellow rock turned country artist Darius Rucker's Christmas record, joining the former Hootie and the Blowfish lead singer on "Baby, It's Cold Outside."
Currently, she is in the middle of a new nationwide headlining tour, with several back to back concert dates. Upcoming shows include the Riverfest Music & Arts Festival in Little Rock, Arkansas (May 22), the Tennessee Theatre in Knoxville, Tennessee (May 23), being the featured artist at the ninth annual First Flush Festival in Wadmalaw Island, South Carolina (May 24), the Peace Center for the Performing Arts in Greenville, South Carolina (May 25), the Filene Center at Wolf Trap in Vienna, Virginia (May 26), and Hope & Denim in Nashville, Tenn. (May 28). She will subsequently be on the road off and on through mid October.
It's safe to say that Crow has certainly reinvented herself from one of the top female singer-songwriters in the rock world into a solid country artist, and been able to not only carry old fans with her, but cultivate new ones as well. The longevity and continued evolution of her career is certainly something worth celebrating, and fans should be able to enjoy her music for years to come.
