Artist Snapshot: Cyndi Lauper


(CelebrityAccess) Nashville, TN – Known best for her legendary pop icon status, Lauper is reigning in a new legion of fans with her new country-tinged album DETOUR. DETOUR, which debuted No. 4 on the Billboard Top Country Albums chart, features duets with several special guests, including Emmylou Harris, Willie Nelson, Vince Gill and Alison Krauss.

The International superstar appeared on Tavis Smiley on October 17-18 to open up about her latest album. Recorded and produced in Nashville, the groundbreaking album spent months on the Billboard Country charts and contains a collection of country covers from the 40’s, 50’s and 60’s (track listing below).

“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…”

Fans can also see Cyndi Lauper in the docu-soap STILL SO UNUSUAL which began airing October 8 on Australia’s 9LIFE channel. The 12 half-hour episodes will run over the next six weeks.

Originally filmed in 2012, STILL SO UNUSUAL takes viewers on an all-access journey into the personal and professional life of one of pop culture’s most beloved and influential icons as she juggles her roles as rock star, mother, wife, Broadway composer, and philanthropist. With her hectic touring schedule, awards appearances, and recording sessions, Cyndi’s family life with her husband of now 20+ years, actor David Thornton (My Sister’s Keeper, The Notebook), and the couple’s teenage son, Declyn, is anything but “normal.” STILL SO UNUSUAL explores the life of an artist who passionately pursues her creative endeavors, work demands and family life without compromising on any of them. She may be constantly running to keep up, but Cyndi's true colors show equally at a glamorous photo shoot and while cheering on Declyn at a hockey game.

STILL SO UNUSUAL was produced for WE tv by Mark Burnett’s One Three Inc. Mark Burnett and Cyndi Lauper serve as the show’s executive producers.
