“Never, (except when her baby was born) have I been so proud and so happy for her. Tomorrow I leave for LA to rest for the Australian tour~ and tomorrow~ she begins a new chapter as a shooting star~ a new little star on Broadway~ someone who can bring some joy into this crazy world…
I want you all to see it if you can. It will change your state of mind, heal your heart~ and bring Carole’s beautiful, beautiful songs back to life.
So, good luck my sweet girl~ I can leave New York now knowing that ~ all is well~”
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 Wednesday, 6/19 Stevie made an appearance at the V & A Summer Party in participation with Dior. She attended the event with long time friend and music producer, Jimmy Iovine and his wife Liberty Ross.
Fleetwood Mac finished up their last concert of the European tour with their 2nd concert at Wembley Stadium last night in London. Unlike the North American coverage of the tour the reviews are far more scathing and photos less common. The gallery has been updated with fan provided photos from the shows in Berlin, Belgium, Dublin, & London.

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.”
“When I interviewed her in 2014, I confessed “Ooh My Love” was my favorite. “That’s one of my favorites too,” she said. “In fact, The Other Side of the Mirror is probably my favorite album. Those songs were written right before the Klonopin kicked in. ‘In the shadow of the castle walls’ — that song was very important to me. I was lucky those songs were written when they were, before that nasty tranquilizer. It was a really intense record. People don’t talk about that record much, but it was different from all the others. It was a moment in time. I had gotten away from the cocaine in 1986. I spent a year writing those songs. I was drug-free and I was happy.”
“Ooh My Love” is her sleek synth-pop power ballad about a princess who hides behind her castle walls. She dreams of the world outside, but she’s terrified of letting her walls down — a very Stevie Nicks dilemma. She belts her wildly emotional vocal (“Yes, it was a strain on her/Watching her castles fall down”) over a New Wave guitar groove from the Fixx’s Jamie West-Oram. Stevie as a princess trapped in her palace is like Bowie’s Major Tom inside his space capsule. “Ooh My Love” is her version of Bowie’s “Ashes to Ashes” or Kate Bush’s “Hounds of Love,” as she fights to escape a solipsistic nightmare. A the end, when she wails “It was a strain on meeeee” — it’s powerful as Bowie pleading, “I want an axe to break the ice,” or Bush shrieking, “Take my shoes off and throw them in the lake!” A heartbreaking song that only Stevie could have done. But hardly anyone was listening.
“Ooh My Love” came after she kicked cocaine — but before her even more destructive addiction to benzos. It was a moment of clarity she commemorated with a very special album, The Other Side of the Mirror. She holed up in a Hollywood mansion with producer Rupert Hine, a dashing Brit whose track record included the Fixx, Howard Jones and Tina Turner. (“Better Be Good To Me,” you remember that one.) The songs had a goth Alice in Wonderland vibe, over Hines’ lavish R&B synth pulse.
“Those songs are different,” she told me in 2014. “That was a moment in time. And you know what? That time never came again, either. That particular record was specific, and nothing like that ever came around again. I’ve always kind of hoped that it will. Because it was a magical time. Up in that big castle-y house in Mulholland, with the producers and the girls.
“Then the Klonopin really kicked in. To go from The Other Side of the Mirror to Street Angel … that was difficult. I was a wreck and the album was a wreck.”
Even by Nicks standards, “Ooh My Love” had a messy history. As she said in January, “I stole that from Tom Petty — accidentally! I picked up the wrong cassette at Tom’s one night, a tape of Mike Campbell’s instrumental demos. Tom would get them first, and then the ones he didn’t want, Mike sent them to me. I accidentally arrived home one night with a cassette — I thought it was mine, but it was Tom’s. It just said, ‘24 Demos from Mike Campbell.’ It had the song that inspired ‘Ooh My Love,’ which became ‘Runaway Train” for Tom.”
Stevie sang her lyrics over it and began demoing it with Fleetwood Mac for Tango in the Night. She was so proud of this new tune, she called up Tom on tour in Japan to pay it for him. “What an idiot, right? Let’s play him the song you stole over the phone! Tom just starts screaming at me on the other end of the phone. I’m realizing, ‘How stupid are you, Stevie?’ So I had to go in the next day and tell Fleetwood Mac, ‘Guess what, we can’t do this song.’ ‘Why can’t we do it?’ ‘Because I stole it from Tom Petty and I’m absolutely a total criminal and a thief.’”
Article From Rolling Stone
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”.
