Appearing on tv wearing a discarded Hank Snow green cowboy suit, another time with cowboy boots that she’d castrated at the ankle, kd lang, turned The Post Nashville Country-Pop scene back to it’s corn porn performance artist best and with rockabilly intensity. kd lang lead the New Country Traditionals Lyle Lovett and Dwight Yokum up the country charts – peaking with the last Owen Bradley Session and almost making us think that Patsy Cline had been indeed reborn.

The ever controversial and fabulous kd debuted on the Canadian women’s magazine with make up added to feminized this butch gal, and it became interesting to see which was more the issue that she was a lesbian or that she was also a vegetarian.

In any event, it was too much for country, so the Angel with a Lariat debuted Ingenue and released her inner torch singer and rocked it. And croonered, giving rat pack era Tony Bennett a resurgence.

if only Freddie Mercury had known where his opera fannishness would lead. maybe he did.

kd’s career of hit records, she did a few arthouse movies and was a headliner at two Canadian Olympics.

kd lang was the first out and Melissa Etheridge and Ellen DeGeneres would soon follow.

I find that I am more amazed by kd’s range than Melissa’s continuing angst and drama queendom and I am a bit surprised to see she’s married a third time.

I’ve seen Melissa twice in concert, but not kd. weird. it’s that canadian thing. inferiority complex.
