JUST LISTEN: ROY ORBISON WEEK (PT. 3)


Roy Orbison had many backup singers throughout his career but none as famous as k.d. Lang. That's right, k.d. Lang was a backup singer on a US tour with Roy Orbison. Together they recorded a duet of Orbison's famous song, "Crying" and won a Grammy for Best Country Collaboration with Vocals in 1989. The song was featured in the Jon Cryer film, Hiding Out.
