C&L's Late Night Music Club with Roy Orbison and k.d. Lang

Rock on the Net: "k.d. won her first Grammy Award for Best Country Vocal Collaboration ("Crying" with Roy Orbison) and was nominated for Best Country Vocal Performance - Female ("I'm Down To My Last Cigarette")."

Rolling Stone: k.d Lang: "I've always compared Roy Orbison to a tree: passive and beautiful yet extremely solid. He maintained a sense of humility and sensitivity and gentleness uncommon to his era. Roy Orbison was like a folk opera singer. I think he was influenced by Spanish opera in structure and in feel. He also loved to express his voice in this upper range, in falsetto. He was vulnerable and strong at the same time. He was extremely earnest in his voice and his appearance, and yet he had this veil of mystery to him."
