k.d. lang Essentials

Country singer, actor, LGBTQ+ trailblazer—k.d. lang has worn many hats throughout her career, all of them wide-brimmed. Born in Edmonton, AB, in 1961, lang grew up on the prairies, where she discovered Patsy Cline and began a lifelong affair with country music. Her performance during the closing ceremony of the 1988 Winter Olympics in Calgary garnered nationwide acclaim and put lang on Roy Orbison's radar, later collaborating with the legend on the evocative ballad “Crying.” Her down-home solo debut, Shadowland, became an instant country classic, but it was her foray into pop with 1992's Ingénue and hit singles such as “Constant Craving” and “Miss Chatelaine” that cemented her international renown. Following a hiatus from the spotlight, lang was raring to go for her 2016 collaborative album with Neko Case and Laura Veirs, Case / Lang / Veirs.
