CanCon: kd lang

If Elvis Presley and Patsy Cline had had a baby, it’s Canada’s kd lang.

Happy birthday handsome 🎉🍷🍷🦂🎉😘@LyleLovett

kd lang, along with her pal Lyle Lovett and Dwight Yokum were the New Traditionalist in Country and put the plucky twang on par with performance art.

American South is not the only country and western place, the middle of Canada, eh?

Hank Snow, Tommy Hunter, Ian and Sylvia because removing the western leaves just folk.

Anne Murray did country/pop until Bryan Adams sold a million records in Canada and then, Cory Hart did it the next month with his debut album and Anne rocked several discs.

kd lang had short hair and cut off cowboy boots and came to country music from community theatre. The shock of lesbian was overwhelmed by vegetarian.
