The multi-talented country artist will join us September 25 for a C&I Facebook Live Chat to talk about her new album.
Country music singer-songwriter Kelly Lang has slipped into a new groove to bring her distinctive spin to classic golden oldies for Old Soul, her new album now available on CD and digital download. It’s a pleasing compilation of rock, pop and country classics dating from the ‘70s to the ‘90s, showcasing such standards as “Can’t Take My Eyes Off You,” “Your Love Has Lifted Me Higher,” “Let’s Give Them Something to Talk About” — and a smooth duet of “Quando, Quando, Quando” with her husband, country icon T.G. Sheppard.
While selecting the lineup for Old Soul — which you can sample here — “I chose songs that brought me back to a simpler time,” Lang says. “These songs are woven into the tapestry of our musical lives. My hope is that the listener will also be able to reminisce and be transported back to great memories while enjoying these classics with a new twist.”
Friends and fellow entertainers have responded to Lang’s new album with high praise for her distinctive approach to the familiar tunes. Olivia Newton-John rhapsodized: “From the moment I put on Kelly’s CD, I smiled! You know when you hear a song on the radio and you have to turn it up so you can hear it properly? That’s what I felt about this whole CD! From the first song to the last, I kept smiling! A wonderful selection of popular songs perfectly suited to Kelly’s beautiful and unique voice. She can sing anything from country to jazz to rock!”
B.J. Thomas agreed: “These classic songs have just been waiting for Kelly’s soulful and emotional vocals. She is a singer who makes you feel that she believes everything that she is singing. And after all, that’s the point, isn’t it?”
“Listening to Kelly Lang’s beautiful mellow voice,” Mac Davis added, “is like curling up by the fire with a good book and a cup of hot chocolate.”
Kelly Lang will join us at 2 pm Sept. 25 for a Facebook Live Chat to discuss Old Soul and other career highlights. Until then — well, to paraphrase the title of a tune on the album, let’s give her something to talk about.
