Cyndi Lauper: On Tour
NASHVILLE, Tenn. (2016) – Known best for her legendary pop icon status, Cyndi Lauper is reigning in a new legion of fans with her new country-tinged album DETOUR (available here), which jusdebuted at No. 4 on the Billboard Top Country Albums chart.
“These songs had a profound impact on me when I was a little girl listening to my Aunt Gracie’s kitchen radio in Queens. I grew up listening and admiring Patsy Cline, Patsy Montana, Hank Williams – all the greats from the Golden Age of country. It was an honor to record those beautiful songs for DETOUR and I am so thankful for the fans and the country music community for welcoming me with open arms,” Lauper said.
DETOUR marks the Grammy®, Emmy® and Tony®-winning singer-songwriter’s foray into the country music arena, with a sweeping collection of country covers from the 40s, 50s and 60s.
Her latest release and first splash onto the country music scene also reached No. 29 on the Billboard Top 200 Albums chart and No. 12 on the Top Current Albums chart. DETOUR features duets with several special guests, including Emmylou Harris, Willie Nelson, Vince Gill and Alison Krauss.
Lauper is back on the road after a DETOUR media blitz that included, “CBS This Morning,” “Late Night with Seth Meyers,” CMT Online, CMT’s Hot Twenty Countdown, GAC and “The Late Late Show with James Corden,” with additional features in Associated Press, USA Today, Rolling Stone Country, Maverick Magazine, NASH Country Weekly, Billboard and syndicated radio programs “Big D & Bubba,” “Kickin’ It with Kix,” “America’s Morning Show,” “Nash Nights Live,” CMT Radio and more.
