Sheryl Crow Frontier Days flap leads to "generous donation" to wild horse advocates
By Alan Prendergast Fri., Jul. 8 2011
Here's the nonmusical puzzle of the day: Is Sheryl Crow's headliner appearance at Cheyenne Frontier Days July 22 a good thing or bad thing for wild horses? It's not exactly a no-brainer, despite the singer-songwriter's long history of animal rights activism.
And -- not to digress or anything -- but how did this Kid Rock/Sheryl Crow tour ever get started, anyway?
The announcement that Crow and Kid Rock would be opening festivities at the rodeo known as "the Daddy of 'Em All" drew whinnies of disbelief from wild horse advocacy groups, including Showing Animals Respect and Kindness, better known as SHARK. The group has posted a video of animals treated badly (see below) at Frontier Days and has denounced Crow as a hypocrite for performing there.
