Vanessa Carlton: ‘Stevie is like a queen’

Vanessa Carlton, who just released a new album called Liberman, recently talked to CBS News about how good friend Stevie Nicks has continued to be an inspiration to her. “Her greatest form of advice is how she lives her life. The way that she looks at her career and looks at her role is so extraordinary because she’s obviously in such a position of power [that] in a sense she’s like a queen, you know? But she is so warm and connected. I just love how she connects all the dots of her life.”
