“Hanging out with the hipsters is hard work,” sighed backup-singer-turned-superstar Sheryl Crow on her 2017 album, Be Myself.

Crow is a classic rocker pitched between Heart Like a Wheel–era Linda Ronstadt and the Rolling Stones—and her unfussy flexibility has always been her strength, like the way she segues from bedroom funk to heartland-style wanderlust on her 1993 debut, Tuesday Night Music Club. After a flirtation with country, she has returned to the winning style with which she began.
