When k.d. lang was offered the duet for "Crying", instead of being overwhelmed by the power of Orbison's three-octave voice, the two blended their tremendous vocal ranges into a riveting collaboration that won them the Grammy Award for Best Country Collaboration with Vocals. In 1988, she performed "Turn me Round" at the closing ceremonies of the XV Winter Olympiad in Calgary. Later that same year k.d. lang would sing background vocals with Jennifer Warnes and Bonnie Raitt for Orbison's acclaimed television special, "Roy Orbison and Friends, A Black and White Night". k.d. lang won the Grammy Award for Best Female Country Vocal Performance for her 1989 album, Absolute Torch and Twang. The single "Full Moon of Love" that stemmed from that album became a modest hit in the United States in the summer of 1989.
The album, Ingenue, released in 1992, contained k.d. lang's most popular song, "Constant Craving", which brought her multi-million sales, much critical acclaim and the Grammy Award for Best Female Pop Vocal Performance. Another top ten single from the record was "Miss Chatelaine"; the salsa inspired track was ironic, as a "Chatelaine" is a respected mistress of a large, fashionable household and lang herself is known for keeping a stereotypically masculine appearance.
k.d. lang continues to tour and record. Her latest album in the 2006 release, Reintarnation.
