Through interviews with her as well as the band, you get a look at the beginnings of the band up until the new lineup featuring Neil Finn and Mike Campbell. Stevie is also interview and recounts the first time she met Christine as well as the potential for rivalry within the band due to her addition to it.
Hard to believe it has been one year since I decided to put together this website along with its corresponding social media accounts! When I created this within the vastness of Stevie’s fandom I wasn’t sure where it would go. As a thank you to all the amazing followers who have gone on this journey some goodies will be posted via all aspects of this site/page. Our first one is our beautiful new layout created by Cherry Gem Designs. The art features our favorite Rock & Roll ballerina from the Rumours photoshoot with splashes of red & black. In addition weekly updates will be made to the site in celebration, so stay tuned!

On June 27th, Stevie attended the premiere of Beautiful on Broadway starring her friend of 15 years, singer Vanessa Carlton. In Stevie’s above journal entry she points out that due to her being in Europe for the Fleetwood Mac Tour, she was told not to come. However she surprised Vanessa, by entering her dressing room after the play had ended.
On June 10th, 2019 Fleetwood Mac continued their European leg with a stop in the Netherlands. The band performed in Landgraaf at the Pink Pop 50 Music Festival.
We finally have some new music featuring Stevie, her latest collaboration with friend Sheryl Crow from her forthcoming album Threads. View the Official Lyric video as well as more information about the amazing lineup for this tune below!
“Sheryl Crow teamed up with country star Maren Morris and the legendary Stevie Nicks for her new song “Prove You Wrong” — but they’re not the only big-name guests on the new track. Crow’s studio band for the song also featured a number of famous friends.
According to a tweet from Crow, Vince Gill, the Eagles’ Joe Walsh and revered session and live guitarist Waddy Wachtel also contributed to “Prove You Wrong.” The melody is classic Crow — sunny and slightly jangly — while the lyrics put an overconfident ex in his place.
“You said if you left, I’d be laid up in a bed of tears / I’d be goin’ crazy, ’cause without you, baby, I’d be sad and lonely ’round here,” Crow sings in the first verse, before she, Morris and Nicks harmonize on the chorus: “It wouldn’t take much to prove you wrong … I got my mind made up and my high heels on / It wouldn’t take much to prove you wrong.”
Morris’ voice in particular shines on the song’s bridge, while Nicks adds vocal flourishes near the end of the track. By that point, “Prove You Wrong” has proved itself as an instant earworm. The song will be going for adds on June 17.”

Harry Styles teamed up with Stevie Nicks at the afterparty for the Gucci Cruise 2020 fashion show at the Capitolini Museums in Rome. The duo performed “Landslide” and “Stop Dragging My Heart Around” for a crowd that included Zoe Saldana, A$AP Rocky and Elton John. Styles was in attendance as the new face of Gucci fragrance.
Styles is a professed admirer of Nicks. In March, the former One Direction member gave a rousing speech at the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame induction ceremony, describing her as “magical gypsy godmother who occupies the in-between.” During his speech Styles said, “If you’re lucky enough to know her, she’s always there for you. She knows what you need, advice, a little wisdom, a blouse, a shawl — she’s got you covered. Her songs make you ache, feel on top of the world, make you want to dance, and usually all three at the same time. She’s responsible for more running mascara — including my own — than all the bad dates in history combined. That is true Stevie.”
The pair also performed “Stop Draggin’ My Heart Around” during the Rock Hall ceremony, and have teamed up at past events, including the 2018 MusiCares tribute to Fleetwood Mac. Nicks previously told Rolling Stone of Styles, “He’s Mick [Fleetwood]’s and my love child. When Harry came into our lives, I said, ‘Oh my God, this is the son I never had.’ So I adopted him.”
On May 28th, Stevie made an appearance at the 2020 Gucci Cruise Afterparty to perform with Harry Styles who was in attendance. They sang “Landslide” and “Stop Draggin’ My Heart Around”.

Days after replacing the Rolling Stones as Jazz Fest headliners due to Mick Jagger’s heart surgery, Fleetwood Mac have also canceled their gig at the New Orleans festival as Stevie Nicks recovers from a bout with the flu.
Fleetwood Mac recently postponed concerts in Boston and Philadelphia due to Nicks’ illness, and on Monday the band announced the remaining four shows of their U.S. trek would be rescheduled as the singer continues to recover.
“As an update to previous Fleetwood Mac posts regarding a band member illness, Stevie Nicks has the flu. While she is feeling better already, management has consulted with her doctors and have decided to reschedule the remaining four shows of their North American tour to allow for her full recovery,” a rep for the band said in a statement.
“This speech thing that I was supposed to give now has been following me down — the sound of its voice will haunt me for the [next] two weeks. It’s not hard for me to go and play for you, but it’s very hard for me to try to tell you — thank you for for this, for being the first girl in the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame — twice!
Sometimes I just couldn’t tell great stories. Because it’s like easy — if I’m telling a story about Prince, I can say, ‘He picked me up in his purple Camaro. And we went out to his purple house in a suburb outside Minneapolis, nobody knew where I was. And we wrote a song called, “It’ll Take You Days to Find Her”? And I can actually tell you a great story about that because it is what it is. But for me to tell you a story from my heart, about what this means to me, is very hard … because this has never happened to me before. [It’s only happened for] 22 men and four — zero women, and now one woman.
