About the Event

Over the last 20 years, k.d. lang has lent her voice to an astonishing range of material, from Nashville tearjerkers to Tin Pan Alley torch songs, from playful cow-punk tunes to sultry, grown-up pop. The multi-Grammy Award-winner—four to be exact—has recorded more than 13 albums, including collections of straight-up country (Shadowland), urbane adult pop (Ingenue, which featured the hit “Constant Craving”), sophisticated torch (Drag), and just a little disco (for the soundtrack to Gus Van Sant’s Even Cowgirls Get the Blues). Her impressive list of Grammys includes awards for Best Country Collaboration with Vocals (for her duet “Crying” with Roy Orbison, 1987), Best Female Country Vocal Performance (1989), Best Female Pop Vocal Performance (1992), and Best Traditional Pop Vocal Album (for her collaboration with Tony Bennett on A Wonderful World, 2003).
