Entertaining Hour of Classic Hits, New ‘Detour’ Songs and Stories Behind Them
 

NASHVILLE, Tenn. (January 11, 2017) Grammy®, Emmy® and Tony®-winning music icon Cyndi Lauper is taking her country DETOUR to landmark television music series “Austin City Limits” (ACL) this Saturday, January 14 on PBS (check local listings). Lauper debuts on the ACL stage in an entertaining hour of classic hit songs and the stories behind them.

Lauper recently wrapped up a headlining nationwide tour in 2016 after
reigning in a new legion of fans with her new country-tinged album DETOUR, which features a collection of country covers from the 40’s, 50’s and 60’s (track listing below). DETOUR,
which debuted No. 4 on the Billboard Top Country Albums chart, features
duets with several special guests, including country 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 country song by a woman to sell one
million copies.
