Listen to Cyndi Lauper and Alison Krauss Duet on “Hard Candy Christmas”

Is it or isn’t it? It has long been argued among peers about whether or not Dolly Parton’s “Hard Candy Christmas” is a Christmas song or not. Well, is it or isn’t it? We’ll let you decide.

screen-shot-2016-12-15-at-10-16-12-amYou may recall the song, written by Carol Hall, sung famously by Dolly Parton in the movie The Best Little Whorehouse in Texas, when the ladies of the house are forced to shut down and leave town. If you haven’t seen the film, it’s a must-see.

In the meantime, Cyndi Lauper has recorded her own version of the song and invited special guest Alison Krauss to join her on the classic. The song is featured on Cyndi’s album of classic country covers, Detour, which dropped in May.

This isn’t Cyndi’s first foray into Christmas music. The pop icon recorded “Merry Christmas…Have  Nice Life” and collaborated with Frank Sinatra on “Santa Claus Is Coming to Town” and with The Hives on “A Christmas Duel.”

Check out Cyndi and Alison’s version of “Hard Candy Christmas.”
