NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) - The Americana Music Association will honor Canadian singer-songwriter k.d. lang, a four-time Grammy winner with hits in country and pop, with their trailblazer award at this year's Americana Honors and Awards show in September.

After getting the honor during the awards show in Nashville, Tennessee, on Sept. 12, she will perform at the Ryman Auditorium on Sept. 16 as part of her Ingénue Redux tour that is celebrating the 25th anniversary of her critically acclaimed 1992 album.

The well-known vocalist, who also acted and composed soundtracks, broke into country music in the early '80s, earning recognition for her duet with Roy Orbison on "Crying," and songs like "I'm Down to My Last Cigarette." In the '90s she had a pop hit with "Constant Craving" and partnered with Tony Bennett.
