Rain Didn’t Dampen Sheryl Crow at Denver Botanic Gardens in Littleton, Colorado

Rain couldn’t keep the crowd away at the Denver Botanic Gardens at Chatfield.  The lawn was a sea of umbrellas belonging to dedicated Sheryl Crow fans.  The nine-time Grammy winner proved to the Littleton crowd that she was worth every drop. Opening with “Maybe Angels” Crow came ready to rock.  A country girl at heart Crow said, “I’ve seen every nook and cranny of Colorado and I love it.  I have a soft spot for y’all.”  She went on to play a collection of favorites from over the years including the breakthrough hit from her debut album “All I Wanna Do” and still popular, “If It Makes You Happy” and “The First Cut is the Deepest”.Kelli_Marsh_Sheryl_Crow-1004

Crow got serious with the crowd for a minute when she acknowledged the recent suicide of beloved actor Robin Williams.  “I’ve gotten very sentimental in these last few days,” she said. “I feel like we’ve lost one of our good ones.  One of our sensitive ones and good-hearted ones.”  After a somber moment Crow played “Redemption Day”, a song about hope, she said. Crow still has what it takes.  Songs from her newest album, Feels Like Home are proof that her twenty-year career has been well earned and she’s not done yet.
