Etheridge To Hit The Road

Melissa Etheridge is on the comeback trail after spending the past year battling breast cancer.

She’s releasing a greatest hits package, The Road Less Traveled, in October and has begun booking dates to coincide with the album drop.

The 44-year-old Etheridge received a standing ovation during February’s Grammy Awards ceremony for a powerhouse tribute to Janis Joplin. She took the stage with a bald head after enduring chemotherapy treatment.

“I would say I’m 97 percent back now,” the singer told AP Radio. “It is very hard. … Chemotherapy is so hard on a person. And I would say I’m fully recovered, yeah.”
