2016 will be remembered for a lot of things. But for me, 2016 will be the year that everyone made a country album — including Lady Gaga.

OK, so not everyone made a country album this year. But artists who you would never expect to dip into the Americana pool have done exactly that. With Aerosmith, Steven Tyler made bombastic, groundbreaking rock mashed up with hip-hop and anthemic ballads. But country music? Not until this year, when he released We’re All Somebody Somewhere. Even new-wave icon Cyndi Lauper went full twang on her latest album, Detour. On “Funnel Of Love,” the girl who just wanted to have fun covers rockabilly legend Wanda Jackson.

Cyndi Lauper and the secret feminist history of ‘Girls Just Want to Have Fun’
"Maybe there’s something I can do besides just being a famous person and singing," Lauper said at a Senate hearing Wednesday.
By https://www.facebook.com/sarah.kaplan.31

“I left home at seventeen,” she wrote. “I took a paper bag with a toothbrush, a change of underwear, an apple, and a copy of Yoko Ono’s book Grapefruit.”

That was 50 million records, two Grammys and 44 years ago, but teen homelessness is an issue that has stuck with Lauper. These days, she’s focused on advocating for gay and transgender kids thrown out by their parents — an issue she raised at a Senate subcommittee hearing about youth homelessness Wednesday.

“Basically, the kids come out and they get thrown out,” she said, according to ABC. “Maybe there’s something I can do besides just being a famous person and singing to them.”
