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.

  • REVIEW: Fleetwood Mac at Rod Laver Arena Tuesday, September 3, 2019
    Given the well-documented dramas they’ve endured over the decades, you assumed by now Fleetwood Mac were pretty much invincible. However reuniting that classic Rumours-era line-up back for the 2014/2015 tour proved they had one more soap opera-style twist up their billowing sleeves. So in 2019, it’s either this Lindsey Buckingham-free version of Fleetwood Mac or […]

  • Fleetwood Mac: Still going their own way Thursday, August 22, 2019
    Since it began as a British rock band in 1967, Fleetwood Mac has undergone 19 iterations while steadily adding Americans and, most recently, a New Zealander to its line-up. Its only remaining founding member is drummer Mick Fleetwood, who recently described each version of the group as “incredibly different musical episodes in this Shakespearean play […]

    If their songs weren’t so strong, endurance may be Fleetwood Mac’s greatest legacy Thirty minutes into Fleetwood Mac’s set at the Brisbane Entertainment Centre this week, Stevie Nicks admitted that she didn’t realise “Black Magic Woman” was a Fleetwood Mac song until well after she’d joined the band. It’s an astounding admission. Sure, the song […]
