Congratulations to k.d. lang, the 2013 inductee into the Canadian Music Hall of Fame. She will be honored at the 42nd Annual Juno Awards, which will take place at the Brandt Centre in Regina, Saskatchewan, hosted by Michael Bublé, on Sunday, April 21, 2013, and broadcast live on CTV.
"In a career spanning over 25 years, the Edmonton native has re-written the rules of country and pop music, garnering eight Juno Awards and four Grammy Awards in the process," said the Canadian Academy of Recording Arts and Sciences (CARAS) in announcing lang as this year's inductee. "Refusing to be categorized, lang has established herself as one of the most innovative, groundbreaking artists in Canadian music history."
"I am deeply honored to be inducted into the Canadian Music Hall of Fame," says lang. "To be included in the lineage of Canadian artists who have formed my musical DNA and who remain my mentors, is beyond humbling."
k.d. lang made her Nonesuch Records debut with the 2004 release of Hymns of the 49th Parallel, on which she performed a highly personal "Canadian Songbook" of songs by Joni Mitchell, Leonard Cohen, Neil Young, Jane Siberry, and others, followed by Watershed (2008) and the 2010 retrospective album Recollection. Her latest album, Sing it Loud (2011), is lang's first record made entirely with a band of her own since the pair of albums with the Reclines that launched her career over 20 years ago.
