Album of the Day
THIS IS THE NODE AOD FULL TEMPLATE
Cyndi Lauper's celebrated musical journey takes an unexpected southern turn on DETOUR - the new Sire album finds the singer-songwriter putting her signature spin on a dozen country classics. It's not the stretch you might think; as she puts it: "When I was a really young kid, country music was pop music, so this is what we grew up listening to. These songs are part of some of my earliest memories." The material (made famous by such greats as Wanda Jackson, Patsy Cline and George Jones) fits Lauper like a glove, underlining both her fine voice and her sense of fun. Recorded in Nashville alongside a band comprised of the city's top session players, DETOUR also features guest appearances from county music stars Vince Gill, Emmylou Harris, Alison Krauss and Willie Nelson.
