Cyndi Lauper Goes Country With Dolly Parton Cover


Cyndi Lauper has given us an early Christmas present with a cover of Dolly Parton’s “Hard Candy Christmas” from the country star’s 1982 musical The Best Little Whorehouse in Texas.

Though not exactly a traditionally festive Christmas track, it’s a sneak preview of Cyndi’s own upcoming country album Detour.

Recorded in Nashville, the new collection will showcase Cyndi’s “signature takes on classic country songs from the 1950’s and 60’s” and is due for release sometime next year.

The singer also teased guest appearances on the album by as-yet-unnamed country stars and has promised more updates in the coming months.
