Sheryl Crow Moved to Nashville, in Part, to Get Away From Paparazzi

“I think celebrity and fame have done a disservice to artistry,” she says.

Sheryl Crow is done with paparazzi.

She's so done with them that she moved her family to the Nashville area a few years back.

“One of the grandest things about living here is getting to be in my line of work, and getting to have my kids and myself have a normal life,” Sheryl told The Tennessean.

“Celebrity is tantamount in Los Angeles, and it’s not here, and I think celebrity and fame have done a disservice to artistry. In this community, family is the most important thing, and privacy rates way up there," she said.

"I don’t think the community here would allow something like paparazzi everywhere.”

Sheryl's first country album, Feels Like Home, will be released Tuesday (Sept. 10).
