Sheryl Crow – Woman in the White House

Sheryl Crow.

Music superstar Sheryl Crow is making her political statement after the American Election. She released a brand new song and music video titled “Woman In The White House,” along with a website to go along with it. A portion of the proceeds for the single, which is now available on iTunes, will go towards the American Red Cross. It’s a fun little single, and video, where Sheryl tries to explain why she thinks time is overdue for a female President of the United States.

Dierks Bentley announced earlier today that the seventh annual “Miles & Music for Kids” will be held on Sunday, October 14th in Nashville, TN. Since 2006, the celebrity motorcycle ride and concert combo has seen twelve events in seven US cities. Thus far, two million dollars has been raised for Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals across the country.

“I really want to blow Miles & Music out this year and make it bigger than ever,” said Bentley.  “We’ve had the chance to help a lot of communities across the country, but the heart and soul of this event is in downtown Nashville with Children’s Hospital at Vanderbilt and the artists and friends who come out and help us raise money. It’s my favorite thing we do all year.”

Beginning at Harley-Davidson of Columbia (1616 Harley Davidson Blvd., Columbia, TN), the event will consist of a one-hour scenic ride that will finish up at downtown Nashville’s Riverfront Park. The fun doesn’t stop there: after the show, Dierks will hold a concert with special guests Sheryl Crow, Chris Young, Brantley Gilbert, The Cadillac Black and Craig Campbell. More artists will be added to the lineup in the next few weeks.

Fans can purchase tickets for the ride, concert and commemorative T-shirt for $50. Those looking to attend the concert only can purchase tickets for $20.  Special VIP packages are also available.

All proceeds from the event will benefit Monroe Carell Jr. Children’s Hospital at Vanderbilt, a Children’s Miracle Network Hospital. Tickets go on sale this Friday, August 17th at 10:00A CT through TicketMaster. For more ticket info, visit www.dierks.com.

TODAY IN HISTORY: Coal Miner’s Daughter Reaches Number One

Loretta Lynn.

Today in 1970, Loretta Lynn‘s “Coal Miner’s Daughter” finally reached number one on the Billboard Hot Country Singles Chart after almost eight months slowly climbing the charts. It held the spot for one-week. It also became Loretta’s first charting single on the Billboard Hot 100, peaking at number 83. She later released an album of the same name in 1970, after only releasing the title track as a single. The single later served as the name for Loretta’s autobiography “Coal Miner’s Daughter: The Autobiography” in 1976, which she had co-wrote. It also served as the name of the movie autobiography based on her life “Coal Miner’s Daughter.”

Loretta released a new version of “Coal Miner’s Daughter” in September 2010 with Sheryl Crow and Miranda Lambert. The trio performed it for the first time together on the 2010 Country Music Association awards. The trio version peaked on the Billboard Hot Country Singles Chart at #55 in December 2010 and appeared on Loretta’s “Coal Miner’s Daughter: A Tribute To Loretta Lynn” album. On the release of this single, Loretta became the first female singer in history to release a single over six decades. This version of the song has been nominated for several awards, including CMA Musical Event Of The Year.

Sheryl Crow Found Out Underwear Incident From Her Dad

Sheryl Crow.

Viewers watching the CMT awards probably remember a few-seconds flash moment that made it past the filter. Sheryl Crow was singing with host Kid Rock on a stool, and when she went to get up off of it and showed the world her underwear. She recovered quickly and made a joke about it later on in the night about the Tweets she was getting about her ‘oops’ moment. When presenting the performance for Lady Antebellum’s “Just A Kiss,” Sheryl joked:

“People all over America are tweeting that I was wearing a really short skirt when I sang with Kid Rock and that when I got up off the stool, I showed my underwear.”

Sheryl told the listeners at KMPS radio that it was her Dad that told her about the incident originally. I wonder what that conversation was like!
