Showtime will broadcast a documentary about Sheryl Crow's busy life and career on May 6. Ahead of the doc's premiere, Showtime released the official trailer for Sheryl, which features interviews with Keith Richards, Joe Walsh, Emmylou Harris, and more.
Directed by Amy Scott, the doc will show an all-encompassing look at Crow's life, from the successes and challenges of her musical career to dealing with depression, cancer, and sexual harassment. The film will include interviews with Crow and others as well as behind-the-scenes footage from throughout her career.
“Sheryl is the voice of a generation,” says Laura Dern in the trailer. “You never questioned whether Sheryl was the boss,” adds Brandi Carlisle. “She’s so rock & roll.”
“From an early age, I knew music was this joyful thing. This nerve-wracking thing,” Crow says in the trailer. “And ultimately, this rewarding thing.”
In coordination with the doc, Crow will also release a companion album. Entitled Sheryl: Music from the Feature Documentary, the two-disc project will feature some of Crow’s biggest hits, including "All I Wanna Do," "My Forever Mistake," and "Strong Enough," along with three new songs.
Ahead of Sheryl's SXSW premiere, Crow opened up to the Austin Chronicle about her decision to make the film.
“My manager, who has been with me from the very beginning, he came to me and said, ‘This would be a great time for you to sit down and tell your story. You have more than 30 years of having navigated a career as a woman and you have a lot to say,'” she told the newspaper. “I kind of gave into it, and I’ll be honest, documentaries have been the thing since I was a kid that have taught me about what it is I wanted to be and what was possible. It wound up really being kind of a gift and a great journey.”
