Sheryl Crow has bought a farm in Nashville, Tennessee, and she's planning to record her fifth album there.

The SOAK UP THE SUN is building a state-of-the-art studio in her new home so she doesn't have to travel to recording sessions.

And she hopes Nashville's country heritage will rub off on her new sound.

She says, "I don't know exactly what kind of record I'm going to make, but I gravitate much more to rootsy, twangy, old-style country."

Crow isn't the only singer to quit Los Angeles for life in Nashville - country star Leann Rimes made the move earlier this year (03).
