WATCH | Nine-time Grammy winner Sheryl Crow has performed with everyone from Michael Jackson to Céline Dion, but another name came to mind when Circa asked her about her greatest musical collaboration.
"He's obviously a great American writer [and], through his art, a great activist. He's one of the most important musical figures that we've ever had."
—Sheryl Crow, on Bob Dylan
"I've worked with a lot of music collaborators, but I will say that the Nobel Prize winner Bob Dylan was probably somebody I could never imagine I would have the opportunity to work with," she said during Circa's recent visit to her home in Nashville, Tenn.
WATCH | She also admires Pearl Jam frontman Eddie Vedder, whom the mother of two hailed as a modern-day role model (whether or not the singers are backing up Ringo Starr in concert): "For my boys, I look at somebody like Eddie Vedder [as] somebody who's stuck his neck out to defend the defenseless."
WATCH | While Kid Rock has more of a bad-boy rep, Crow praised him* more than a dozen years after they charted with "Picture" in 2003: "Kid Rock is one of the best friends a person can have. He has also told me on numerous occasions, 'Whatever you need for your boys, I'm totally there [to help]."
*Note: We interviewed Crow before news spread about Rock's sale of controversial pro-Trump shirts.
Not everything pleases Crow these days.
When Circa asked Crow what makes her think "Enough of this s***," the petitioner calling for shorter presidential election cycles slammed 24-hour news coverage: "It's a shouting match. And if I turn it on when I'm coming home from dropping my kids off at school, I can be guaranteed within the 10 minutes that I listen to it... my blood pressure is going to be skyrocketing."
