Sheryl Crow to put kids before touring
Sheryl Crow is considering only performing live at weekends so she can spend as much time as possible with her sons Wyatt, three, and five-month-old Levi
Sheryl Crow may reduce her touring schedule to be with her children.
The 48-year-old singer - who has two adopted sons, Wyatt, three, and five-month-old Levi - loves performing but is considering cutting back on her live shows because she finds travelling with children exhausting.
She explained: "In Nashville, singers with kids only play live on Saturdays and Sundays. They call themselves the weekend warriors. I think I might do the same thing myself soon enough."
As well as wanting to cut down on the amount of performances she does because of her children, Sheryl also admitted becoming a mother has made touring much less wild than it used to be.
She said: "Touring is a very different thing for me now. I'm much calmer, much less. debauched would be the wrong word. I was never debauched, but I did like a smoke and a drink.
"These days, I'm lucky if I end the evening with a glass of wine. But then I travel with my children now. My priorities have changed."
Now the singer spends her days off while on the road visiting child-friendly local amenities.
She said: "It's parks, aquariums, museums in the morning. Then lunch, a nap for them, sound check for me, dinner all together and then I tuck them into their bunks before going on stage. As soon as the show is over, I'm back on the bus and to sleep - hopefully."
