On Friday, Sheryl Crow will release her next record, Be Myself, but tonight, on NCIS: New Orleans, she’s going to play herself, as she cameos on the procedural drama. “I am the party band in the back yard of a very well-to-do New Orleans couple,” she tells Radio.com.
“They are, I guess, doing a fundraiser. But there’s something underhanded going on, and sure enough, while we’re playing, they find a dead body.”
She says she enjoyed the shoot, especially as it took her down to the Big Easy. “It was fun, we had a great time, it was great to meet all those guys and to be in New Orleans, because that’s where I made my second record. It was fun.”
She performs two songs off of Be Myself — the first single, “Halfway There,” as well as “Roller Skate” — but she also had a bit of dialogue.
“I had like one line and I flubbed it like fifteen times,” she laughs. “I’m not cut out for acting at all. But I know how to play myself!
NCIS: New Orleans airs tonight on CBS at 10 pm ET/9 pm Central. Sheryl Crow will appear on The Late Show with Stephen Colbert on Thursday, April 20.
