Pop star Sheryl Crow is starting out just like any other new country artist—she’s on a bus visiting as many country radio stations as she can to plug her new country single, “Easy,” and her upcoming country album, Feels Like Home.
Sheryl can thank Brad Paisley for that. You see, Sheryl came to the Country Music Association Awards back in 2010 to sing “Coal Miner’s Daughter” with Loretta Lynn and Miranda Lambert.
And Brad grabbed Sheryl afterward and “beseeched” her to come home to country music, the Associated Press reports .
But Brad’s involvement didn’t end there: Brad suggested Sheryl’s eventual country producer, Justin Niebank, and Brad put Sheryl with one of his favorite songwriters, Chris DuBois.
Heck, Sheryl eventually wrote with Brad himself.
“I made Brad Paisley write a chick song about being a single mom,” she said.
The result, “Waterproof Mascara,” will appear on Feels Like Home, coming out Sept. 10.
