Sheryl Crow has followed the release of her widely-praised collaborations album Threads by announcing a partnership with famed instrument company Gibson. They’ve teamed with the nine-time Grammy winner to present the new Sheryl Crow Country Western Supreme acoustic guitar.
The guitar was created especially for Crow and is based on her own Gibson Country Western. The features of the new signature model are designed, as Gibson says, to deliver “the sweet voice of the classic Country Western design with the added punch created from Gibson Acoustic’s 1930’s Advanced bracing pattern.”
The instrument’s Thermally Aged Sitka spruce top and hide glue provide additional projection and increased expression, creating a wider dynamic range. Each guitar is outfitted with the Amulet M analog pickup for accurate tone and response of the instrument when it’s amplified.
The Gibson Sheryl Crow Country Western Supreme is heralded as the most highly customised Country Western in the history of the guitar manufacturers. It’s finished in Antique Cherry, revealing the natural grain and beauty of the acoustic. Every guitar will be hand-signed by Sheryl herself, and will arrive with a Certificate of Authenticity. The instruments will be sold through authorised Gibson dealers, with more information available at their website.
On 27 September, Crow continued her extensive promotion and live activity behind Threads with an appearance on CMT Crossroads. She was joined by many of the contributors to the all-star album, including Chris Stapleton, Emmylou Harris, Jason Isbell, Joe Walsh, Bonnie Raitt and Lucius. Here’s Sheryl’s performance with Stapleton of the album’s ‘Tell Me When It’s Over’:
Crow’s upcoming live appearances include the VetsAid show in Houston, Texas on 10 November. She’ll also be appearing at Brandi Carlile’s Girls Just Wanna Weekend in Puerto Alvaro Obregon, Mexico, which is scheduled for 29 January – 2 February 2020.
