Win a Copy of Cyndi Lauper's "Detour"
In a note on her website, Cyndi Lauper is quoted as saying, “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.”
Indeed, it might be surprising to some who only remember the singer-songwriter for her 1980s pop hits like "Girls Just Wanna Have Fun," but Cyndi Lauper has always kept us guessing. And now she's releasing Detour (out May 6) via Mutzarella. According to the press release:
DETOUR showcases Cyndi Lauper’s unmistakable voice on country classics from the ‘40s, ‘50s and ‘60s and features guest appearances from country music stars Vince Gill, Emmylou Harris, Alison Krauss, and Willie Nelson. Lauper recorded the album in Nashville alongside a band comprised of the city’s top session players.
