Sheryl Crow pumps up capacity Meijer Gardens crowd with smooth shift between rock and country E-mail
by John Sinkevics

Crow2byTonyNorkusThe reinvention of a major pop star can be a tricky business.

With nine Grammy Awards, seven No. 1 singles and five platinum-selling rock/pop albums to her credit, Sheryl Crow is clearly “an A-list artist, a household name,” as Frederik Meijer Gardens & Sculpture Park concert promoter Chris Mautz so aptly puts it.

So, Crow’s much-talked-about switch to Nashville sweetheart as she prepares to release her first full-fledged country album in September might seem fraught with some peril, considering her fan base is built on catchy Top 40 hits such as “Soak Up the Sun,” “All I Wanna Do” and “If It Makes You Happy.”

On June 5, 2013, photographer Paul Jendrasiak had a chance to visit Buddy Guy's Legends in Chicago, to capture some pictures of Grand Rapids' own Donald Kinsey at the Blues Breakers Blues Fest Broadcast.

Donald's had an amazing career, playing with blues great Albert King and reggae legends Bob Marley and Peter Tosh! He performed with his brothers in The Kinsey Report to open the night. Buddy Guy, Quinn Sullivan and Shemekia Copeland also performed during the 90 minute show.
