Sheila E. Goes Country


Sheila E. has gone country, y’all!  YEEEHAW!  The “Glamorous Life” singer decided to go on the CMT reality show, “Gone Country,” to compete to work with Nashville songwriters to write and sing a country song.  She said her friend Prince was a little taken aback by the news.

“He asked me why in the heck would I do this show,” the Grammy-nominated singer told People magazine.

Sheila E. won the competition for her new song, “Glorious Train.”  She beat out other celebrity opponents, which included George Clinton, Taylor Dayne, Richard Grieco and Justin Guarini. 

“I want to take an advantage of this opportunity and I would love to do a country record,” says the singer.  “I already contacted all of the writers who appeared on the show and I’m going back to Nashville to do a writing session at the end of March to come up with material.”
