I recently had the chance to chat with Sheryl Crow and brought up how brave I thought she was for crossing over into country music, considering the current rate of success for women in the genre (the current top 10 is 100% male, and only 3 females currently have songs in the top 25). I've asked others this question before, and most of the time I get the answer, "I don't know." Sheryl at least attempted to answer, although I'm not sure what to make of what she said.
"I do think that in the last…ten…fifteen years art has gone the way of commerce and you know that's…whenever there's money involved then you figure out what's going to bring in sponsors and what's going to resonate with people and what's going to sell records."
