Sheryl Crow’s 50-acre Nashville home features everything she needs in one place.

In addition to the main house, the mom-of-two built a barn on the property that features a recording studio, saloon and horse stables.

“It’s ideal because I’m a single mom – I can go to work just down the driveway,” Crow, 54, tells Country Living’s June issue of having an on-site studio.

And the saloon is a perfect place to throw a party.

“It’s a great gathering place,” she said. “We’ve had a lot of really good fund-raising events here.”

Crow also built a separate building to serve as a church.

“When I bought this property, I thought it would be nice to have a space that has nothing to do with work – just a quiet and sacred place to gather,” says the singer – though admits it isn’t always quiet. “The kids do like to go in and ring the bell!”

Crow displays many of her various collections – including antique books, equestrian-inspired pieces, glass cloches and vintage boxes – in the main house, an English manor-like home that features wood paneling and multiple fireplaces.

“I’ve always loved old stuff,” says Crow. “I got my love of antiquing – we called it junking – from my mom. I just buy what I love.”

The Latest Craze in Disco Styles Is See-Through Jeans—but Beware of Foggy Bottoms

Posted on

On a clear day, you can see forever—or at least that’s the wicked thought behind L.A. designer Agi Berliner’s transparent idea: see-through jeans. Exhibitionists notwithstanding, most folks wear them over bathing suits or as attention-getting evening wear with halters, garter belts and body stockings. Created for the disco crowd, the $34 jeans are selling like, well, hot pants. In just six weeks, 25,000 pairs have already been sold in such major department store chains as Macy’s, Bonwit’s and Saks.

“What’s limiting American designers is that we’re afraid to do something different,” says Berliner, 32, a Hungarian émigré who fled with her family to the U.S. in 1956. Agi thought up the gimmick in London while marveling at the way plastics were being employed by designers of punk fashion. In her L.A. office, where she designs for La Parisienne junior sportswear, Agi spent five days on the phone and six weeks testing to come up with the right plastic.

Agi herself tried out the French-cut jeans with the zipper in front, and quickly found several problems: Some plastics tore away from stitching, others wouldn’t bend and all fogged with perspiration. The ideal material proved to be a vinyl supplied by a bookbinder. The steam was eliminated with a series of vents behind the knees and in the crotch. “They’re no hotter than polyester pants,” claims Agi, “and if you wear them with tights, they won’t stick to your legs.”

Whatever the discomfort and despite the problem of Saturday night feverishness, discomaniacs report one major advantage of the plastic pants: no laundry bills. To keep Berliner’s see-through jeans clear, all the wearer needs is a little Windex.
