Grammy, Emmy and Tony winning singer-songwriter Cyndi Lauper is taking a hillbilly detour.
Detour is Lauper’s first record for Sire Records and executive produced by legendary Sire founder, Seymour Stein.
For the album, Lauper duets with several special guests, including hillbilly music royalty: Emmylou Harris (on the title track), Willie Nelson (“Night Life,” a song he wrote over 50 years ago), Vince Gill (Loretta Lynn and Conway Twitty’s “You’re The Reason Our Kids Are Ugly”) and Alison Krauss (Dolly Parton’s “Hard Candy Christmas.” Jewel also makes an appearance on DETOUR, showcasing her prodigious yodeling skills on “I Want To Be A Cowboy’s Sweetheart,” which was the first hillbilly song by a woman to sell one million copies.
