Sheryl Crow’s 50-acre Nashville home features everything she needs in one place.
In addition to the main house, the mom-of-two built a barn on the property that features a recording studio, saloon and horse stables.
“It’s ideal because I’m a single mom – I can go to work just down the driveway,” Crow, 54, tells Country Living’s June issue of having an on-site studio.
And the saloon is a perfect place to throw a party.
“It’s a great gathering place,” she said. “We’ve had a lot of really good fund-raising events here.”
Crow also built a separate building to serve as a church.
“When I bought this property, I thought it would be nice to have a space that has nothing to do with work – just a quiet and sacred place to gather,” says the singer – though admits it isn’t always quiet. “The kids do like to go in and ring the bell!”
Crow displays many of her various collections – including antique books, equestrian-inspired pieces, glass cloches and vintage boxes – in the main house, an English manor-like home that features wood paneling and multiple fireplaces.
“I’ve always loved old stuff,” says Crow. “I got my love of antiquing – we called it junking – from my mom. I just buy what I love.”
