Olivia Rodrigo is always quick to pay tribute to the great female artists who’ve come before her, and on Friday night, she joined one of them onstage for a duet at a legendary Nashville club.
On September 29, Olivia teamed up with Sheryl Crow at Nashville’s iconic Bluebird Café to perform Sheryl’s hit “If It Makes You Happy.” Alongside a video of the performance, Olivia wrote on Instagram, “pinch me! sang one of my favorite songs of all time with the greatest of all time @sherylcrow !!!! what an honor!!!!”
She also shared a goofy photo of herself and Sheryl underneath old-fashioned hair dryers, reading copies of Vogue. Sheryl shared the same photo and video on her Instagram, and wrote, “Funnest day ever with the amazingly brilliant @oliviarodrigo! What a talent!! And the loveliest young woman!”
Videos posted on social media also reveal that Olivia also performed her own songs at the Bluebird Café, debuting two songs from GUTS — “lacy” and “making the bed” — live for the first time. She also sang her #1 hit “vampire.”
The Bluebird Café gig wasn’t the first time Sheryl and Olivia shared a stage: Last March, Sheryl gave Olivia the Woman of the Year award at Billboard’s Women in Music event. At the time, she told People, “I think [Olivia’s] gonna be around a long time. She deserves to be where she is, celebrating this moment.”
Sheryl will be inducted into the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame in November.
