To mark the launch of the new release, the seven-time Grammy Award winner will be appear on QVC this Thursday, Sept. 12, at 5 p.m.

During the “QVC Presents QSessions Live” show, Nelson is scheduled to play a selection of songs from the CD while offering viewers the opportunity to order the album, which has been bundled with a bonus disc just for QVC shoppers, two weeks before the CD drops.

“We are thrilled to have a legendary music icon like Willie Nelson at QVC,” Ken O’Brien, QVC vice president of merchandising, said in a canned statement. “Our viewers will get a first-row seat as he unveils some of his greatly anticipated new songs.”

“To All The Girls…” celebrates Nelson’s birthday year with a selection of classic songs from America’s country, pop and gospel repertoire. Featured musicians include Carrie Underwood, Sheryl Crow, Dolly Parton, Norah Jones, Emmylou Harris and more.

Nelson is a founder of Farm Aid, a non-profit organization whose mission is to promote a strong and resilient family farm system of agriculture and to keep family farmers on their land, and is furthered through an annual fundraising festival concert event.

What QVC didn’t mention in its press release is that Nelson has been a vocal proponent of the legalization of pot.

Nelson isn’t the first country cross-over musician to grace the stage at QVC. Past influential artists have included Randy Travis, Sheryl Crow and Reba McEntire, among other notable musicians including The Beach Boys, Justin Bieber, Carly Simon and more.

ShopNBC Joins Home-Shopping Musical Bandwagon With Live Concert By Heart

August 26, 2010

Heart, one of our favs, will perform live on ShopNBC this Sunday at 2 p.m. as the group introduces its first new studio album in six years, “Red Velvet Car,” on the network.

The album, which will be officially released Aug. 31 through Sony Music’s Legacy Recordings, will be available exclusively to ShopNBC viewers during the band’s acoustic performance.

We heart Heart

ShopNBC is the third home shopping networks, behind QVC and HSN, to host live concerts of popular artists and sell their new albums. It’s a way for these channels to draw in viewers who ordinarily wouldn’t be caught dead watching QVC or HSN.

QVC recently had Sheryl Crow on for a great concert, and HSN has had Natalie Cole.

During the hour long pre-release show titled “Heart Live!” on ShopNBC, Ann and Nancy Wilson will perform acoustic renditions of songs off their new album as well as a selection of their greatest hits in front of a live in-studio audience.

Included with the pre-release of Heart’s new album, “Red Velvet Car,” will be a 5-track greatest hits live album, exclusive to ShopNBC, and a vintage Heart T-shirt, which until now has only been available on the Heart website and at live performances.

The entire pre-release package will be offered to ShopNBC viewers for $19.83. In addition to the live studio performance, customers may also preview clips of the new album online at ShopNBC (Search Term: Heart).

God, it’s worth it to buy this package just for the T-shirt alone!

Here’s ShopNBC’s hype on Heart, whose “What About Love” is on our all-time favorite list:

Like all Heart albums, ‘Red Velvet Car’ rocks hard, but also has a deep acoustic side. Nancy Wilson has long been known to play her acoustic guitar with rock ferocity. With this album, an abundance of resonant acoustic instruments (guitars, mandolin, dobro, banjo, fiddle, viola, cello, and autoharp), played by Nancy Wilson and the album’s producer, Ben Mink, are showcased in Heart’s unique style.

Nine of the album’s songs were written especially for the album, ‘Red Velvet Car.’ The album’s closer, “Sand,” is a newly recorded version of a song originally written and recorded by the Lovemongers, Ann and Nancy’s 1990’s acoustic side project.

“We are thrilled to bring internationally known music icon Heart to the ShopNBC network and provide our viewers with a one-of-a-kind shopping experience through this live performance,” ShopNBC president Bob Ayd said in a canned statement.

“As a multi-media retailer operating with a premium lifestyle brand, we are highly focused on content, commerce and community to the surprise, delight, and entertainment of our 1 million customers. Establishing a strategic relationship with Sony Music will not only help expand what customers can expect from us, but also open the door for many new and exciting opportunities within the music industry going forward.”

Here’s the hype from the record label.

“The arrival of ‘Red Velvet Car,’ the first new Heart album in six years, is cause for celebration,” said Adam Block, Executive Vice President and General Manager, Legacy Recordings. “We think there’s a great fit here and are excited for Nancy and Ann Wilson to be sharing their new songs live with their fans on this ShopNBC event.”

Ann Wilson and her younger sister, Nancy Wilson, proved that women can rock when their band Heart hit the charts in the ’70s with hits like “Crazy on You,” “Magic Man,” “Barracuda,” “Straight On,” “Even It Up” and “Kick It Out.”

Not only did the Wilson sisters lead the band, they wrote the songs and played the instruments, making them the first women in rock to do so. Heart continued topping the charts through the ’80s and into the ’90s with huge hits like “These Dreams,” “Alone,” “What About Love,” “If Looks Could Kill” and “Never.”

Heart sold more than 30 million records, had 21 Top 40 hits and sold out arenas worldwide.

We Give Up: QVC’s Response On Sheryl Crow’s Denim, Not Jewelry, Line

July 23, 2010

We finally got a response, the wrong response, from QVC’s PR Department to our question about rocker Sheryl Crow’s new denim line.

On Monday night Crow, during her live performance on the home shopping channel, said she was doing a denim line that would feature low-priced jeans, in the $60 range. That evening, we e-mailed QVC’s PR folk to ask the obvious question: Was QVC going to sell Crow’s denim.

Here is the answer we got back, finally, Wednesday.

“This is Denise Kovalevich with QVC’s PR department. I received your email about Sheryl Crow bringing a jewelry line to QVC and at this time I cannot confirm that this is true.”

Well, we asked about DEMIN, not JEWELRY, so do you know something we don’t know, Denise? Has Crow got a jewelry line in the works? Oh, we forgot, you can’t confirm that it’s true.

Well, how about her denim line, which was actually our question?

In fact, here’s our original question verbatim.

“I just watched the Crow concert, and she said she is doing a low-priced denim line, jeans.
Will those jeans be sold on QVC?

…For nothing.

We sent QVC’s PR department this e-mail on Monday night, right after we watched Sheryl Crow perform and heard her say she was doing a denim line.

We got this e-mail back from QVC at 8:25 a.m. Tuesday morning.

Please provide us with your phone number and deadline. Thank you for contacting QVC.

We supplied our number and deadline. And that was the last we heard from QVC.

So we still don’t know if Crow’s low-cost jeans will be sold on QVC. But don’t say we didn’t try to find out.

As for QVC’s PR department: How about doing your job?

Sheryl Crow Rocks The House, And A Sexy Miniskirt, Live On QVC — She’s Got A Denim Line Coming Out, Too

July 20, 2010

Sheryl Crow

Nine-time Grammy winner Sheryl Crow’s live performance on QVC Monday night was one of the best, most natural performances we’ve seen of a musical artist on a home shopping network. Her whole band was there to perform songs from her new CD, which will be released tomorrow, called “100 Miles From Memphis.”

Crow looked gorgeous, wearing a tiny turquoise sequined miniskirt and a cream sleeveless cowl top. When host Lisa Robertson came over to talk to Crow, she told her, “Don’t bend over in that one.”

Robertson later on made reference to Crow’s sexy mini again, joking, “That skirt is available separately for a very reasonable price.”

Crow mentioned that she had a new denim line coming out, with jeans no more than $60, but it was unclear if that merchandise is for QVC. We’ll check that with QVC’s crack PR department.

What the home shopping network was selling Mondaya was Crow’s “100 Miles from Memphis CD” and a six-track bonus CD for $19.

It’s a bluesy CD, according to Crow, who is a former school teacher. “I grew up 100 miles from Memphis,” Crow told Robertson, explaining the album’s title.

Crow was loose and relaxed. “Can we say ‘kick-ass’ on QVC?” she asked Robertson at one point.

And at another point she joked, “A girl can’t have enough Grammys.”

For a live audience at QVC’s West Chester studios, Crow sang songs from the new CD as well as old favorites such as “All I Want To Do.”

In between numbers, Robertson chatted Crow up. The singer said that she wanted this album to be about ‘vulnerability” and “desire,” as opposed to prior albums that were more political.

Crow is about to go on tour with her new band, and her message to her fans was, “We’re so excited to have a new record out.”

There is a Volume 2 of “100 Miles From Memphis” coming, according to Crow.

We guess Crow’s good looks and her musical talent came from her parents back in Missouri. She said both her parents were musicians who played in a swing band.

And when Robertwon asked Crow how she kept in such great shape, which was something we wanted to know, the singe said, “A large part of it is genetic.”

But Crow also said she is active and likes to do athletic things outdoors.

QVC sold more than 3,500 of the CD sets. At least, that was the last count that Robertson gave during the show.

Here’s what QVC’s website said about the CD:

“Not just a location, ‘100 Miles from Memphis’ reflects a state of mind to Sheryl Crow. Showcased by the first single ‘Summer Day,’ her seventh album displays an impressive range of feeling and performance rooted in her small-town upbringing. If you can’t get enough of this talented singer-songwriter, you’ll enjoy more of your favorite Sheryl Crow tunes on the six-track CD of her greatest hits.”

Sheryl Crow — Talented, Gorgeous And Over 40 — Is Giving A Live Concert On QVC Monday

July 15, 2010

One of our favorites, Sheryl Crow, is coming to QVC.

The woman whose talent, hair, men, beauty and hipness we envy will be performing live on QVC this Monday at 10 p.m.

Crow is part of a growing list of popular artists, such as Justin Bieber, who have come to the No. 1 home shopping network to perform and sell their newest CDs. In the case of Crow, her new release is called “100 Miles From Memphis.”

Crow recently performed on QVC UK, according to QVC’s Facebook page. That’s where we learned Crow would be on QVC next week.

There is so much to admire about Crow. She is a breast cancer survivor. She adopted a child as a single mother. She is gorgeous and youthful looking, a rocker, yet is in her 40s.

We think she’s gone out with Kid Rock, who we love. Anyway, she did a great duet with him. And her song “My Favorite Mistake” is one of our favorite songs.

Here is QVC’s press release on Crow, which we just saw. QVC posted it Thursday.


Nine-Time Grammy Award-Winning Artist to Debut Her Much-Anticipated New Album

100 MILES FROM MEMPHIS with Special QVC Performance

WEST CHESTER, Pa. (July 15, 2010) – Who says you can never go home? After conquering the rock and pop worlds with six Top 10 albums, iconic singer-songwriter Sheryl Crow is headed back to her Southern roots with her new album 100 Miles from Memphis. To celebrate the release of what many critics are hailing as “her best album to date,” the Missouri native is scheduled to appear on QVC Monday, July 19 at 10 PM (ET) for a special live performance.

During the QVC Presents QSessions Live Featuring Sheryl Crow broadcast, Crow will not only give fans a sneak peek of her highly anticipated new album but also take them behind-the-scenes of the journey that led her back “home.” She will offer viewers the opportunity to order the CD, which comes with an additional bonus CD created especially for QVC customers containing 6 previously released hits, before street date.

“100 Miles from Memphis is one of the most exciting releases of the year and marks a pivotal moment in Sheryl’s career,” said John Kelly, vice president of merchandising for QVC. “We are thrilled that she is debuting this much-talked-about new CD on QVC and that she is bringing our viewers inside her world with a special performance.”

100 Miles from Memphis is Crow’s seventh album and its title reflects a statement of purpose, both musical and emotional, that marks her long-awaited return to the sounds that first drew her to making music. With the help of critically acclaimed producers Doyle Bramhall II and Justin Stanley, the album features an eclectic mix of songs. Standout tracks include the CD’s first single “Summer Day,” which is already topping the charts, as well as innovative renditions of classic top hits, including Terence Trent D’Arby’s “Sign Your Name” and a special tribute to Michael Jackson with The Jackson Five’s “I Want You Back.”

“This album was an important project for me because it allowed me to delve back into the music and sounds that I grew up with,” said Crow. “I am excited to have the opportunity to share my music, and the story behind this special record, with QVC’s viewers. It’s going to be an amazing show.”

100 Miles from Memphis, with the special bonus CD containing previously released hits (QVC Item #F08971), will be available through QVC starting July 19.
