Bonnie Raitt & Mavis Staples – “Live Wire”[Video: Sheryl Crow]“Live Wire” comes on the heel of Crow’s “Redemption Day” release featuring Johnny Cash. The song was originally written by Crow back in the 1990s when it appeared on her self-titled 1996 album. Cash would go on to hear the song for the first time in 2003, shortly before his death in September of that year. Cash apparently asked a lot of questions about what the various lyrics penned by Crow may have meant, as he didn’t want to perform a cover the song without connecting with its core meaning, according to a statement shared via press release. Cash’s cover of “Redemption Day” would go on to appear on his 2010 American VI: Ain’t No Grave album.Crow’s Threads collaborative album will feature 17 tracks full of the music world’s favorite musicians including Don Henley, Keith Richards, Stevie Nicks, Jason Isbell, Chris Stapleton, Maren Morris, and more.Keep an eye on Sheryl Crow’s website for her Threads release date announcement and more information.
The Winnebago County Sheriff’s department is reporting that they have arrested a 32-year-old man who reportedly walked over 300 miles to meet and have sex with an internet user he believed was a 14-year-old girl.The incident occurred in early October.Officials say Tommy Lee Jenkins was communicating with a Winnebago County Sheriff’s deputy who told Jenkins that they were a 14-year-old girl named “Kylee” who lived in Neenah, Wisconsin with her mother. At some point during their communications which were all of a sexual nature, Jenkins asked if the “teen” would like him to come to Neenah to have sex. After the “teen” agreed, Jenkins began walking from Whitestown, Indiana to Wisconsin, which is 351 miles away.Jenkins took several selfies during his journey and sent them to the teen as he made his way to her town. Once he arrived, he was arrested.“Our nation faces an epidemic of child sexual abuse, with the Internet making it too easy for predators to communicate with children across the country,” United States Attorney Matthew D. Krueger said in a statement. “The Justice Department is committed to working with federal, state, and local law enforcement agencies to prosecute child sexual abuse aggressively.” Jenkins has since charged with using a computer in an attempt to persuade, induce or entice a minor to engage in unlawful sexual activity. If convicted, he faces up to 10 years behind bars. He is scheduled to appear in federal court on October 23th.
