Crow made a guest appearance at Rodrigo’s concert on Saturday, where they performed the 1996 hit single together.

This weekend, Sheryl Crow brought joy to Olivia Rodrigo’s heart. At her Guts World Tour concert at Bridgestone Arena in Nashville on Saturday, the 21-year-old “Vampire” artist welcomed the 62-year-old “Soak Up the Sun” singer onstage. Together, they delivered a memorable rendition of Crow’s hit “If It Makes You Happy.”

In fan-captured footage shared on YouTube, Rodrigo expressed her excitement about having Crow join her, praising her as one of the most talented and kind-hearted individuals she’s had the pleasure of meeting. Rodrigo also mentioned their previous collaborations and cherished friendship.

With her guitar in hand, Crow then appeared on stage, and the duo enchanted the audience with their performance of the 1996 classic, taking turns singing verses of the song.


As Rodrigo mentioned in her introduction, her collaboration with Crow isn’t a recent occurrence.

Back in November, they made waves at the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame Induction Ceremony, where they kicked off the event with a captivating rendition of “If It Makes You Happy.” Later, Crow was honored with induction into the Hall of Fame by her friend Laura Dern.

During the ceremony, the nine-time Grammy winner shared some valuable advice she had imparted to Rodrigo. Crow advised her to jot down a sentence every day, as a way to preserve memories for the future. Additionally, she encouraged Rodrigo to focus on her work and ignore the surrounding noise.

Reflecting on their collaboration, Crow expressed her admiration for Rodrigo’s talent and mentioned the importance of supporting her during the release of her second album. She emphasized the challenges of following up a successful debut album and applauded Rodrigo’s ability to overcome them.

Their musical connection didn’t stop there. Just two months earlier, Rodrigo and Crow shared the stage at The Bluebird Café, a renowned Nashville venue. There, they delivered an intimate performance of “If It Makes You Happy” in a stripped-down arrangement.

Rodrigo commemorated the occasion with an Instagram post, featuring a playful snapshot of herself and Crow sitting in salon chairs, holding magazines.


In the following slide, Rodrigo delighted her followers by sharing a video of their mesmerizing duet, capturing the audience’s attention as they sat side by side on stools, gracing the small stage of the venue.

“Pinch me!” exclaimed the pop-punk sensation in her caption. “Sang one of my all-time favorite songs with the legendary @sherylcrow!!!! What an incredible honor!!!!”

In response, the rock singer-songwriter reciprocated the admiration by reposting the content on her Instagram Story, praising Rodrigo’s talent with the words, “She is just really good, y’all!”
