Sheryl Crow Cannot Believe She’ll Be Honored Like Bob Dylan And Stevie Nicks
In a recent interview with Variety, singer-songwriter Sheryl Crow shared her feelings about being inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in the class of 2023. A mixture of disbelief and excitement characterized her reaction.
When asked about it, Crow admitted that she was taken aback by the news. She likened the feeling to being nominated for an Oscar while still in the process of writing a movie and shared that the past three decades went by so quickly that it was difficult to reflect on all that has happened.
The singer also expressed deep appreciation for being mentioned alongside musical giants like Stevie Nicks and Bob Dylan, who have had significant influences on her career through collaborations and partnerships like in her 1999 album, ‘Sheryl Crow and Friends: Live from Central Park.’ She stated that she was still coming to terms with the honor awaiting her.
The musician’s words on the matter read:
“Oh my gosh. I was really surprised. I said this when I was nominated: It feels like you’re being nominated for an Oscar, but you haven’t finished writing your movie yet. It’s hard to think back on 35 years and even remember it all; it just seems like it went really fast. And to be even in the same sentence with people that for so many reasons I wouldn’t even be here if it weren’t for them — Stevie Nicks and the Rolling Stones and Bob Dylan and Willie Nelson… Honest to God, I’m still processing it.“
Nicks was welcomed in the Hall twice, first in 1998 and then in 2019, while Dylan was inducted in 1988. Now, Crow will be accepted alongside a stellar lineup of artists, including Nelson as well as others like Kate Bush and Rage Against the Machine. The induction ceremony is scheduled for November 2023 and will be held at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn, New York.
