Donate to HSUS and receive a free download of a new Sheryl Crow song
SANTA MONICA, Calif. — Sheryl Crow, singer, songwriter and The Humane Society of the United States supporter, is using her voice to help stop animal cruelty. In a new TV ad campaign, which features her new single "Summer Day" and launched July 5, Sheryl urges viewers to become a Humane Hero by supporting The HSUS and the work they do in saving countless animals' lives. For the next three weeks, anyone who donates any amount to The HSUS will receive a free download of "Our Love Is Fading," a song that will be featured on Sheryl Crow's new album 100 Miles From Memphis, which will be released on A&M Records July 20.
The Humane Society of the United States is the nation's largest and most effective animal protection organization — backed by 11 million Americans, or one in every 28. Established in 1954, The HSUS works for the protection of all animals through advocacy, education and hands-on programs.
"Sheryl Crow is a dedicated supporter of animal welfare, and The Humane Society of the United States is honored to have her join us in our efforts to end animal abuse," said Wayne Pacelle, president and CEO of The HSUS. "The HSUS has already been able to rescue nearly 10,000 animals in 2010 alone, and thanks to Sheryl and all our donors, we will be able to continue fighting animal cruelty on all fronts."

Since the release of her seven-times platinum debut set Tuesday Night Music Club in 1993, which was nominated for five Grammys and won three, Crow has released five studio albums, quadruple-platinum greatest hits collection, a Christmas album and has performed duets with musical luminaries such as Sting, Kid Rock, Mick Jagger and more. She has also been nominated for an additional 27 Grammys, winning six more. Her most recent nomination was for her sixth album, 2008's critically acclaimed Detours.
Crow will unveil her soul stylings when her new studio set 100 Miles From Memphis is released July 20 on A&M Records. First single "Summer Day" is already at Top 10 hit at adult radio. Crow will hit the road in August with a brand new band to play selections from 100 Miles From Memphis.
