Lynn
Anderson

One of the top-ranked female vocalists in any musical genre, Lynn Anderson is often referred to as a "singer's singer." Her sophisticated image and "countrypolitan" sound helped her to become one of the first female country artists to achieve mass crossover appeal, and her strong vocals have garnered her more awards and accolades than many country artists combined. Billboard currently ranks Lynn Anderson among the top ten most successful country female artists for all-time record sales.
Lynn has sung for four U.S. Presidents and the Queen of England, most recently for former President Jimmy Carter at his 75th birthday celebration. During the 1970s, when Hollywood needed a country act for variety shows, benefits, national telethons, talk shows and even television dramas, Lynn Anderson was usually the choice. She was the first female country artist to do the Tonight Show circuit, as well as the first to headline and sellout Madison Square Garden in 1974. That same year, she became the first country artist to win the American Music Award for "Favorite Female Vocalist." In addition to several appearances on the Tonight Show, Lynn has been featured on The Ed Sullivan Show, Kraft Music Hall of Fame, The Dean Martin Show, The Tom Jones Show, The Midnight Special, The Johnny Cash Show, The Glen Campbell Goodtime Hour, The Carol Burnett Show, The Sonny and Cher Show, Hollywood Squares, The Dinah Shore Show, Solid Gold, Good Morning America, The People's Choice Awards and three Bob Hope Specials, as well as acting on an episode of Starsky and Hutch at the height of its popularity and in "Country Gold," an NBC Movie of the Week. Lynn also starred in her own CBS television special with guest star Tina Turner. Throughout her career she has served as an ambassador for country music, broadening its appeal and taking it to new levels, proving that a country artist could have major success on national television.
Born in Grand Forks, North Dakota, on September 26, 1947, and raised in California, Lynn's love of country music can be attributed to her mother, songwriting great Liz Anderson. Liz composed such hits as "The Fugitive" and "My Friends Are Gonna Be Strangers" for Merle Haggard. Haggard's band, The Strangers, was named for the latter hit.
Lynn's first foray into the music world was when, as a teenager, she entered a singing contest sponsored by the Country Corners program in Sacramento. By the time she turned 20, Lynn had been with a national recording company for three years, scoring a string of hits: "That's a No No," "Rocky Top," "Promises, Promises," "I've Been Everywhere," and "Big Girls Don't Cry." She was a regular on a top-rated network show. When she signed with the Lawrence Welk Show, she became the only country performer featured weekly on national television.
In 1970, Lynn moved to Nashville and signed with Columbia Records; with husband/producer Glenn Sutton, she began turning out a steady stream of well-received recordings for the new label. Then one of those rare sessions occurred. Lynn entered the studio to record Joe South's "Rose Garden". What emerged was a bit of MAGIC! The song climbed to the top of both the country and pop charts, something that was completely unheard of at the time. "Rose Garden" transformed Lynn Anderson into an international superstar. The album, "Rose Garden," was released after the single in February 1971. It earned Lynn numerous gold albums worldwide and went RIAA Platinum in the United States. She received an astonishing 32 tributes for the phenomenal recording. "Rose Garden" remained the biggest selling album by a female country artist from 1971 - 1997, when Shania Twain broke Lynn's longstanding record.
After "Rocky Top" and "Rose Garden," more number ones followed: "Cry," "How Can I Unlove You," "Keep Me in Mind," "You're My Man," "Man What a Man My Man Is" and "Top of the World". In a career that spans over four decades, Lynn has scored eight NUMBER ONE records, 18 Top-Tens, and over 50 in the Top-40. She has earned a total of 17 Gold Albums and won virtually every award available to a female recording artist: CMA Female Vocalist of the Year, Academy of Country Music Award Female Vocalist of the Year (twice), American Music Award for Favorite Female Vocalist, Record World Artist of the Decade (1970-1980), Billboard's Artist of the Decade (1970-1980) and the prestigious Grammy Award. Her records have sold in the millions worldwide, many of them becoming standards. Her most recent Grammy Award nomination was in 2004 for "The Bluegrass Sessions."
In addition to being a multi-million selling recording artist, Lynn has been equally successful in the equestrian world. She has won 16 National Championships, four World Championships and several celebrity championships. She produced a TNN Special, "American Country Cowboy's," which benefited various handicapped groups. Lynn's philanthropic interests are longstanding ... one of her recordings was chosen as a theme song for the National Christmas Seal Campaign. She also works with horseback therapy riding programs for adults and children.
Lynn has made her home in Taos, New Mexico, for the past 20 years, but is currently in transition back to Music City. She owns several horses and still competes at national equestrian events. She hits the concert trail two or three times a month, headlining major casinos, performing arts centers, fairs and festivals.
The American Rose Society created a beautiful hybrid tea rose (cream finely edged with pink) and named it The Lynn Anderson.
Lynn Anderson may not have promised us a rose garden but she has given music lovers around the world much, much more, and she defines the word "legend."
