Sweeping down out of the plains of Alberta came a country voice the likes of which we had not heard since a plane wreck robbed us too early of Patsy Cline. It belonged to one Kathryn Dawn Lang, known as kd lang, for whom Cline had been a role model.
Of course, kd had a bit of a different thing going on — kind of a Patsy Cline as interpreted by Elvis. My favorite kd album was “Shadowland,” an album of country classics released way back in 1988 and produced by the late Owen Bradley, who had been Cline’s producer. It’s a truly great collection of music.
This song, “Luck in My Eyes”, is not on “Shadowland.” But since it’s Friday the 13th, I was looking for a song related to luck, bad or good, and that was excuse enough to post some kd.
Hope you made it through the 13th safely.
