Fleetwood Mac singer and songwriter Stevie Nicks is in Austin for SXSW. But, what brought her here might surprise you. The singer of “Landslide,,” “Dreams,” and “Edge of 17,” is getting a big welcome to SXSW, but this time it’s not for a concert. She’s in Austin promoting her long-awaited documentary, In Your Dreams.

“It’s like your own reality TV,” said reporter Bettie Cross. “It was. It exactly was. And never would I have thought that because I don’t really love reality TC,” said Nicks. The documentary chronicles the making of her latest solo album, also called In Your Dreams. But, living with cameras 24/7 took some convincing from her collaborator, Dave Stewart of Eurythmics fame.

“That means makeup, and kind of cool clothes, and no bunny slippers and he’s like darling if you don’t like it we won’t use it. And those were the words I needed to hear — if you don’t like it we won’t use it,” said Nicks.

With the singer’s seal of approval, In Your Dreams is screening at SXSW and will debut in theaters April 2. She says it’s helping her stay relevant.

“Do you hear your influence in the young music out today,” asked Cross.

“Absolutely. I see like the Civil Wars and it’s like, oh, there’s Stevie and Lindsey 30 years ago,” said Nicks. Nicks says she also turns on the radio and hears herself in singers like Taylor Swift and Beyoncé.

“Beyoncé she wrote, she took (hit single) ‘Edge of 17’ and wrote ‘Bootylicious’ from that. So she’s listening. And I know she’s listening. Of course, that’s the greatest compliment of all,” said Nicks.

Stevie Nicks goes on tour with Fleetwood Mac in April. She says the harmony has never been better. The documentary, In Your Dreams, will be shown in Austin and theaters across the country on April 2. The Fleetwood Mac concert tour comes to Texas in June with stops in Dallas and Houston.
