Attention all fans of [lastfm]Sheryl Crow[/lastfm], mark your calendars for July 20, 2010, as that’s the date the legendary singer-songwriter will take the stage of New York’s Ed Sullivan Theater for a free “Live on Letterman” webcast!

Tune in right here at 8pm ET (5pm PT) to watch the nine-time Grammy winner rock out in an hour-long set that will include classic songs from her extensive 18-year recording career alongside soon-to-be-discovered hits from her brand-new album. Crow is about to unveil her soul stylings on the new studio set, 100 Miles From Memphis, released July 20 on A&M Records. After the release of 100 Miles From Memphis, Crow will debut a new live band to take her funky new sound on the road with a stop at Radio City Music Hall September 26th.

And for those who love Crow but can’t catch the event live, don’t worry. The entire show will also be available free on-demand shortly after the webcast.

Read on for details about Crow’s newest album, a video for her new single, and more information about her free Live on Letterman concert!

100 Miles From Memphis is Sheryl Crow’s seventh studio album, after a series of award-winning releases that stretch back to her much-loved 1993 debut, Tuesday Night Music Club. That album won her three Grammys, sold in the millions, and ignited the career of one of the strongest rock and pop singer-songwriters in contemporary American music.

Crow’s much-anticipated new collection drops July 20, the very same day as her Live on Letterman performance. According to Crow, the album made her “feel artistically revitalized” while remaining true to her Southern roots (she hails from Kennett, Missouri). It also features guest vocals by [lastfm]Justin Timberlake[/lastfm] and a suprise appearance from [lastfm]Keith Richards[/lastfm].

The album’s first single, “Summer Day,” is a captivating slice of easygoing, warm-weather joy.


Live on Letterman is a series of high-quality music webcasts shot live on the stage of the Ed Sullivan Theater, home to David Letterman. Past concerts have included [lastfm]Tim McGraw[/lastfm], [lastfm]Paul McCartney[/lastfm], [lastfm]Elvis Costello[/lastfm], and most recently MGMT, each showcase allowing fans all over the globe to experience (for free) a full set of music from their favorite artists in an intimate setting.

We’ll have more information on Crow, her new album, and the live webcast all week long right here–including photo galleries, videos, tour information, and behind-the-scenes content–so stay tuned.

And of course mark July 20, 2010 as the date of the live webcast. The show begins at 8pm Eastern (5pm Pacific), and it’s sure to be a special event for longtime and brand-new fans alike.
