[VIDEO] Sheryl Crow on Rebuilding New Orleans & Blue Jeans Go Green
This year will mark the 10-year anniversary of Hurricane Katrina devastating New Orleans.
The New Orleans Area Habitat for Humanity has been an integral part of getting the city back on its feet.
This year, Grammy Award-winning singer-songwriter Sheryl Crow is joining the build. Today, she's talking about the Build-A-Thon, which aims to build 10 houses in 10 days on America Street in New Orleans East, marking the 10th anniversary of Hurricane Katrina's destruction of much of New Orleans' housing.
She also issues a call to action by asking viewers to recycle their unwanted jeans and other denim apparel to the Blue Jeans Go Green™ program, which will facilitate converting the denim into housing insulation for the ten New Orleans Area Habitat for Humanity homes being built. The goal for the collection is 10,000 denim items.
Created in 2006 by Cotton Incorporated, the Blue Jeans Go Green™ denim recycling program is a call-to-action to recycle denim and give it "new life" by converting it to UltraTouch™ Denim Insulation.
To date, the program has collected more than 1 million pieces of denim.
These efforts have diverted over 600 tons of waste out of landfills and have generated approximately 2 million square feet of UltraTouch™ Denim Insulation, much of which assisted in building efforts for communities in need with organizations such as Habitat for Humanity.
Sheryl Crow is a nine-time Grammy winner who has sold more than 35 million albums around the world and has performed duets with musical luminaries such as Sting and Mick Jagger, has been nominated for an additional 27 Grammy's and has released eight studio albums (seven charting Top 10, four of them platinum-plus), a quadruple-platinum greatest hits collection and a Christmas album.
Crow is a passionate supporter of a variety of environmental and health-related charities, including The Breast Cancer Research Foundation, The NRDC, The World Food Program, Feeding America and Cotton's Blue Jeans Go Green™ Denim Recycling Program.

[NEWS] Willie Nelson, Sheryl Crow part of Franklin's Pilgrimage Music & Cultural Festival
Another music festival is making its debut in Middle Tennessee and paying homage to history.
The Pilgrimage Music & Cultural Festival will launch in September with a lineup that includes Willie Nelson, Weezer, Sheryl Crow, Neko Case, Iron & Wine and Jimmy Cliff, among others. It will be held at the Park at Harlinsdale Farm in Franklin.
Better than Ezra singer Kevin Griffin said last year that he got the idea for the festival one day while jogging through the 200-acre former Tennessee Walking Horse farm.
"I had this kind of epiphany surrounded by those rolling hills and natural amphitheaters: This is the perfect setting for an amazing, unique music festival," Griffin said in a Tennessean story in October.
At the time, the festival's organizers estimated that crowds could top 15,000 each day.
Organizers said today that many of the acts will be performing acoustically and will do so on wood-clad stages. There will also be several collaborations among the artists.
Food will also play a role with a "Kitchen Stage."
The festival will be held Sept. 26-27. According to its website, two-day general admission passes will cost $169.
Harlinsdale farm's expansive green lawns and historic barns are also set to serve as the backdrop for the Americana Music Association's Cross County Lines festival on May 30.
It will be the second time that event — which organizers said on an event permit is expected to draw more than 5,000 — will be held at the park.

[NEWS/VIDEO] Sheryl Crow Wants Your Jeans
NEW YORK, April 21, 2015 /Nassau News Live/ — Ten years. Ten days. Ten homes.
Ten-thousand jeans. On behalf of the Cotton Incorporated Blue Jeans Go Green™ denim recycling program, nine-time Grammy Award-winning singer-songwriter Sheryl Crow is asking consumers to recycle their unwanted denim to help rebuild New Orleans, an area still feeling the repercussions of Hurricanes Katrina and Rita. Blue Jeans Go Green™ has set a collection goal of 10,000 pieces of denim, which will be transformed into UltraTouch™ Denim Insulation by manufacturing partner Bonded Logic, Inc., and then provided to a ten-home Build-A-Thon being conducted by New Orleans Area Habitat for Humanity set for May 20 – 30.
Over the past 40 years, U.S. cotton growers have reduced pesticide applications by 50%, reduced irrigation water applications by 40%, and have grown twice as much cotton on 30% less acreage. Sheryl Crow, who was born and raised in the Cotton Belt state of Missouri, supports the Blue Jeans Go Green™ initiative, which brings the environmental gains cotton growers have made in the field full-circle by diverting textiles from landfills and helping to rebuild communities.
“I hope to influence as many people as possible to recycle their denim through the Blue Jeans Go Green™ program,” said Crow. “It’s a really simple way to help the environment, help communities in need and complete an environmental cycle that begins on the farm and ends with us. To think that my old jeans could help insulate a house is just an incredible idea, I’m excited to work with Cotton Incorporated on this initiative.”
Since 2006, the Cotton Incorporated Blue Jeans Go Green™ program has helped rebuild communities by providing hundreds of thousands of square feet of UltraTouch™ Denim Insulation to Habitat for Humanity affiliates around the country. Over that time span the program has diverted more than one million pieces of denim — roughly 600 tons — from landfills, and created approximately two million square feet of insulation for communities in need.
“The average consumer owns seven pairs of jeans,” says Andrea Samber, co-director of Strategic Alliances at Cotton Incorporated. “Giving just one of them to the recycling drive can make a big difference in a family’s life.” Information on where to recycle denim through Blue Jeans Go Green™ can be found at www.bluejeansgogreen.org.
Samber explains that the program has a long history in the New Orleans area. “Participating in a Habitat for Humanity build there in 2007 was one of the first activities of Blue Jeans Go Green™. Since then we have given just over half a million square feet to the Gulf South, alone. We’re happy to still be involved, and to be collaborating with New Orleans Area Habitat for Humanity on this ambitious ten-home, ten-day Build-A-Thon.”
“New Orleans Area Habitat for Humanity is thrilled to have Blue Jeans Go Green™ support our efforts to build ten houses in ten days to mark the tenth anniversary of Hurricanes Katrina and Rita,” said Jim Pate, Executive Director of NOAHH.“By providing insulation for our build, the program is making a significant contribution to affordable housing and sustainable living that will positively affect families in New Orleans for generations to come. We are also very grateful to Sheryl Crow for her leadership and participation,” he said.
More than 600 volunteers will come together in New Orleans to participate in the ten-day build on America Street. Included will be 500 active service AmeriCorps volunteers, as well as alumni and other volunteer groups from around the country that will all will be reuniting in New Orleans for the Build-A-Thon.

- PERSONAL NOTES -
been a huge fan of the showbiz music awards. They tend to award an
artist for their most popular (and commercially-hyped) works and not
necessarily for their _best_ works. Also, award winning songs are in
many cases both overrated and overplayed to death! Haha.
That said, I recognize the importance of the most
popular awards in terms of personal achievement, prestige and, well,
ca$h :-) So i'm obviously happy when Sheryl gets a music award, but at
the same time I can't help but think of all the other good songs she
wrote (or co-wrote) and which are often underrated or worst, forgotten.
Perhaps it's superfluous to mention, but Sheryl's talent and greatness goes beyond those award winning hits.
