Sheryl Crow Is Calling All ‘Heroes’
Sheryl Crow is using music and a new television campaign to call on fans to join her in the fight against animal cruelty. In the new TV ads, which premiered July 5, Sheryl shares her concerns about the mistreatment of animals and champions the work of the Humane Society of the United States, which has been the nation's most recognized animal-rights organization since its founding in 1954. The spots showcase her new single, 'Summer Day.'
To become one of Sheryl's Humane Heroes, her fans and other animal lovers can visit www.humanesociety.org to donate to the cause and download a free song, 'Our Love Is Fading.' The song is from Sheryl's upcoming album, '100 Miles From Memphis,' which will be in stores July 20. Those who donate $25 or more to the cause will also receive a subscription to the Society's membership magazine, All Animals. The campaign will continue for the next three weeks.
'100 Miles from Memphis' is Sheryl's seventh studio release, and pulls from the sounds of Motown and Memphis soul for its inspiration. Produced by sometime Eric Clapton guitarist Doyle Bramhall II, the collection features guest appearances by Justin Timberlake and Rolling Stones' guitarist Keith Richards. There is also a cover of the Jackson 5 classic, 'I Want You Back.'
Sheryl is also the cover girl for Redbook's August issue, where she talks about making the album, being mother to two adopted boys, fighting breast cancer, and trading mommy secrets with celebrity friends like Nicole Kidman and Kimberly Williams-Paisley. The issue will hit newsstands the same day as the new album, July 20.
