Born Kathryn Dawn Lang on November 2, 1961 in Edmonton, Canada, Lang has won both Juno and Grammy Awards for her musical performances.

In 1983, she formed a Patsy Cline tribute band called The Reclines and they recorded an album entitled Friday Dance Promenade. It was her duet with the late Roy Orbison in 1987—a remake of his 1961 recording Crying—that put her on the country charts for the first time and earned Lang a Grammy Award win for Best Country Vocal Collaboration. Perhaps her biggest commercial hit to date was Constant Craving, a cut from her 1992 album Ingenue. Lang went on to pair up with veteran crooner Tony Bennett for a collaborative album.

Even though such country music greats as Minnie Pearl and Loretta Lynn sang the praises of k.d. Lang, she was never fully accepted by the country music industry. She once explained to People magazine, "I was there in Nashville, a lesbian, a vegetarian, a Canadian and trying to get in with this white, male, Christian society. They were like, 'What the hell are you doing here, girl?'"
