"Callin' Me When I'm Lonely" is a song recorded by American singer-songwriter Sheryl Crow. It was released as the second single from her 2013 album, Feels Like Home. The song was written by Nashville songwriters Rodney Clawson and Brent Anderson, being one of the two tracks on the album that Crow didn't have a hand in writing.
The song has received positive reviews from music critics. The song was Taste of Country's Critic's Pick for October 13, 2013 and was praised by critic Billy Dukes, who compared the song to Lady Antebellum's "Need You Now" and wrote that "You have to listen a few times to realize you don't miss the heavy-handed production that sensationalizes and sexualizes similar efforts. It's just a woman singing what's in her heart, pure and simple." Tara Toro from Got Country Online gave the song 4 stars out of 5, writing: "Sheryl's voice conveys the feelings of loneliness and vulnerability believably", also stating that "this song (and album) should assist her in becoming a mainstay in the genre". Enio Chiola from Pop Matters wrote that "It's so freakin' catchy and rings out with a home-hitting familiarity that you can't help but think: Why does he always gotta be callin' me when I'm lonely?".
Crow performed the song for the first time on the late night talk show Late Night with Jimmy Fallon. She also performed the song on Katie, Live with Regis and Kelly and on Country Music Televsion's Hot 20 Countdown.
