Hot Sheet: Fund-Raisin' in the Sun

The top 10 entertainment and events highlights on our gaydar this week: from a beach fund-raiser for L.A.'s gay center to some powerful ladies — Madonna, Sheryl Crow, and Batwoman.



8. CD: Sheryl Crow, Feels Like Home
Sheryl Crow harkens back to her country roots with her latest album, Feels Like Home. While the singer-songwriter has always had a certain twang to her style, her latest effort is a full-on, boot-stompin' down-home good time. The record's 12 tracks hint at the influence of greats before her, including Merle Haggard, Patsy Cline, and Bobbie Gentry. Crow keeps her songwriter cred alive on Feels Like Home with lyrics that are catchy, well-crafted, and accessible enough to be popular while also artistic enough to win respect. This record has a little something for everyone, the Advocate and SheWired editor Trudy Ring reveals in SheWired's exclusive review: "Some of the tracks are upbeat (for when all you want to do is have some fun), others slow and a little somber (in case you feel like hell tonight)." Check out the full review on SheWired and pick up a copy of the record out now from Warner Music Nashville, or download it through iTunes here. Enjoy a sample from the new album with the official music video for "Easy" below.
