Singer Anne Murray says she realized she was a role model when she learned she'd rejected a song offered by k.d. lang, who was a child at the time. "As far as k.d. lang is concerned, she grew up devouring my music. She sent me a song when she was 8 years old and she says I never wrote back," Murray, 45, said. "She reminded me of it a few years ago. It's always bothered me that I didn't." Lang, the country singer noted for her masculine style of dress, was born in 1962 and grew up in the Alberta farm belt listening to her fellow Canadian.
