When someone tweeted that Sheryl Crow music be rolling in her grave over Kid Rock’s plans to run for US Senate many people were surprised.
But no-one more than Crow herself, because, as far as she knew she was alive and well. Sure she’d been diagnosed with a benign brain tumour in 2011 but it hasn’t required treatment.
To prove it the 55-year-old singer-songwriter tweeted back.
While that interaction went insane on the internet, with over 93,000 retweets, it also inspired Sheryl to pen a new tune.
In the song she writes about her former singing partner Kid Rock, but takes a few digs as a couple of politicians, and of course Tuna Ketchup who tweeted the ‘fake news’ in the first place.
Crow has had a number of hits including ‘All I Wanna Do’ and ‘If It Makes You Happy’. This twitter interaction has certainly made some of her friends and fans happy – especially if they had wondered if they’s missed some important news along the way.
A nine time Grammy winner, Crow is about to start her latest tour of the US, so there’ll be a few fans wondering if this will make it onto the set list.
