About Lynn Anderson

Lynn Rene Anderson is an American country music singer and equestrian known for a string of hits throughout the 1970s and 1980s, most notably her Grammy Award-winning, worldwide mega-hit, "(I Never Promised You a) Rose Garden."

Helped by her regular exposure on national television, Anderson was one of the most popular and successful female country singers of the 1970s. In addition to being named "Top Female Vocalist" by the Academy of Country Music twice and "Female Vocalist of the Year" by the Country Music Association, Anderson has charted 11 No. 1, 18 Top 10, and more than 50 Top 40 hits.

She was the first female country artist to win an American Music Award in 1974, as well as the first to headline and sellout Madison Square Garden that same year. Anderson was named Billboard Magazine's Female Artist of the Decade (1970–1980).

She has a child (Lisa, now 10) from her 10-year marriage to songwriter-producer Glenn Sutton, and she and Spook would have two of their own (William Gray, 3, and Bunny, 1)
