Sheryl Crow has been around for an eternity since her favourite mistake not making her happy back in the 90s, but these days is better known as a country musicians, and with that hat one she has been announced as the first headliner of this year’s Black Deer Festival of Americana, which the organisers say is “returning bigger and better than ever in 2024 to celebrate five years of the event.” Crow will headline the festival on Saturday 15th June on the park’s main stage, with fans expected to enjoy a career-spanning set from the nine-time Grammy Award winner. Black Deer Festival runs from 14th-16th June 2024 at Eridge Park, Kent.

Crow is fresh off the heels of an album announcement – ‘Evolution‘ will be the artist’s eleventh studio album, due to be released March 2024 – and an induction into the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame. Joining forces with Gen-Z pop sensation Olivia Rodrigo and the legendary Stevie Nicks to play a trio of hits at the induction ceremony, the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame honours artists who, in their careers, have created music whose originality, impact and influence has “changed the course of rock and roll.”

The 2023 edition of Black Deer saw Nathaniel Rateliff & the Night Sweats, The Pretenders and Bonnie Raitt headline the weekend, with additional sets from the likes of CMAT, Bears Den, Richard Hawley and Kurt Vile & The Violators. We were positively beaming about it.
