No other singer has had a more diversified career than Linda Ronstadt. She began her career in the mid-'60s with the folk-rock group the Stone Poneys. After the break-up of the Stone Poneys, Linda entered the country music field. In 1969, with the release of Hand Sown... Home Grown, Linda became the first female singer to release an alt-country album. She achieved her greatest commercial success in the mid-'70s when she became the first female rock superstar. Her long string of platinum albums continued throughout the '80s with several varied projects. These included three albums of standards with the Nelson Riddle Orchestra, an album of mariachi standards, and an album of old-time country music. She ended the decade with a return to popular music featuring her duets with Aaron Neville. Linda's success has extended into the past decade as well, starting off with a Grammy win for Don't Know Much and ending the decade with a Grammy nomination for Western Wall and a win with Trio II. Other Grammy-winning projects during the 1990's included another album of Mexican canciones, an album of Latin music, and an album of rock classics redone as lullabies. And during this same time, she has produced some great pop/rock music with Winter Light, Feels Like Home, and her most recent solo album We Ran.
Her hits include "Different Drum," "You're No Good," "When Will I Be Loved," "It Doesn't Matter Anymore," "Tumbling Dice," "Poor Poor Pitiful Me," "Alison," "Somewhere Out There" and "Don't Know Much."
