Sheryl Crow recently performed an intimate concert in her barn in Nashville as part of the MusiCares House Concert Series.

Among the stars who attended the show on October 30 were Peter Frampton, Jewel, and songwriter Marc Beeson Other guests included A&R executive Tracy Gershon, Academy of Country Music CEO Pete Fisher, and Recording Academy and MusiCares President/CEO Neil Portnow.

“We’ve had two people that work for me, that if it weren’t for MusiCares, wouldn’t be here,” said Peter Frampton. “It’s very near to my heart. They’ve been so incredible. You give back where you can. It’s amazing what they can do.”

“Sheryl’s been a great friend to the Academy for many years,” Portnow told Billboard. “As MusiCares has evolved and developed more and more artists learned about us, loved the mission and found ways to participate. … Sheryl is very aware what the organization does and now that we’ve embarked on this program we call ‘House Concerts,’ it’s an opportunity for artists to participate in a new and different way. What Sheryl is doing is a little out of the ordinary in a good way because she’s opened up her home for us and hosted this event right here.”
