The new documentary Sheryl, an intimate story of song and sacrifice about musical icon Sheryl Crow, will premiere on Showtime on Friday, May 6 at 9 p.m. ET/PT.
Director Amy Scott navigates Crow’s seminal yet hard-fought musical career battling sexism, depression, perfectionism, cancer, and the price of fame – before harnessing the power of her gift. Sheryl had its world premiere at the 2021 SXSW.
Sheryl is told through present-day interviews with Crow, behind-the-scenes verité on the road and in her studio, never before seen archival footage spanning 20 years of touring, and interviews with close allies Keith Richards, Laura Dern, Joe Walsh, Emmylou Harris, Brandi Carlile, and others. Crow’s early gift of music and dedication to songwriting set her on an unapologetic path to perfection – which ultimately became both a blessing and a curse to overcome.

In conjunction with the documentary premiere, UMe/Big Machine Records will release a new album called Sheryl: Music From The Feature Documentary digitally and on 2CD on May 6. The release features her biggest hits, including “If It Makes You Happy,” “Soak Up The Sun,” “All I Wanna Do,” “My Favorite Mistake,” “Redemption Day” and many more, as well as deep tracks and three newly recorded songs.
