Assisted by not one, but two female powerhouses, Sheryl Crow’s latest single, “Prove You Wrong,” features none other than the legendary Stevie Nicks and rising country-pop star Maren Morris.
The single is featured on Crow’s forthcoming collaboration album Threads, due out Aug. 30 via The Valory Music Co. With soaring vocals from all three singers, the song showcases the prowess of two music pioneers and Morris, who is carving her own way in the country genre.
Fueled by female empowerment, the song is a testament to the world women live in today: “I got my mind made up and my high heels on / It wouldn’t take much to prove you wrong,” the ladies sing.
“Stevie exudes art, she is at all times authentic. She’s the sister I don’t see enough, but she never leaves my heart,” Crow said in a statement. “I invited Maren to perform on ‘Prove You Wrong’ with Stevie and I because she belongs in our ‘club’ of strong female rockers who tell it like it is.”
Other than Nicks and Morris, Waddy Wachtel (longtime collaborator of Nicks, Keith Richards, Linda Ronstadt, James Taylor, Warren Zevon and Jackson Browne), Vince Gill and Joe Walsh also contribute their musicianship to the song.
Other singles from Crow’s forthcoming album include “Live Wire,” which features Mavis Staples and Bonnie Raitt, and “Redemption Day,” which reworks Crow’s 1996 song of the same name while featuring vocals from Johnny Cash’s version of the song, released after his death in 2003.
