Sheryl Crow has assembled two big musical talents for the country track “Prove You Wrong”.
Stevie Knicks and Maren Morris join Crow, 57, for some three-part harmonies on the new track. In addition to the powerhouse women, the song also features music by the Eagles’ Joe Walsh and Vince Gill.
“I got my mind made up and my high heels on/ It wouldn’t take much to prove you wrong,” the ladies sing on the catchy country diss track.
“I started this project about three years ago, and it started with Kris Kristofferson and recording with him. And I’ve known him for many, many years, and I started feeling like, ‘You know what? I want to start calling in people that I’ve loved and have inspired me from the very beginning,'” Crow tells iHeartRadio. “So one of the first people I thought of was Stevie Nicks. I sent her this song and said, ‘Would you record with me?’ And she did and it was just a beautiful experience.”
Crow also has high praise for Morris as she envisions a long career for the 29-year-old Texan.
“Maren is a really tough but super sweet, great songwriter, great musician, and I think she’s going to be around for a long time. I’ve loved getting to know her and getting to work with her,” Crow continues.
The song will be featured on Threads, Crow’s upcoming album of collaborations, which also includes songs with Bonnie Raitt, Mavis Staples, Keith Richards, Chris Stapleton, and Don Henley.
In an interview with Nashville Public Radio, Crow suggested Threads will be her last album.
“It takes a lot of time and money and energy to create a fully artistic statement with a beginning, a middle and end,” Crow said in an April interview. “And, you know, you hope you have a song that lands on a playlist somewhere. People just don’t listen to albums anymore. So I feel like this is a good one to go out on.”
But fans shouldn’t hit the panic button just yet — Crow says she has no plans to stop making music; she just won’t put out a full-length album.
“In the future, when I write something I feel like needs to be put out, we’ll just put it out. We won’t wait to make a whole album.”
