Without a doubt the most commercially successful openly gay female country singer of all time, K.D. Lang long ago stopped limiting her albums to strict country-and-western terrain, gradually moving toward more polished, adult-contemporary production in the '90s. But with her latest albums, she's brought back some of the twang from her '80s breakthrough records. Her 2008 record Watershed played like a culmination of everything Lang had recorded before, pairing the western tones of her early albums with the jazzy, folky aesthetic of her later efforts. Her new Sing It Loud is even rootsier. She recorded it in Nashville with a tight backing band led by Guster's Joe Pisapia, who also co-produced the album.
