One of the top-ranked female vocalists in any genre, Lynn Anderson's strong, husky vocals have garnered her more awards and accolades than many country artists combined, and an audience that spans both country and popular music.

Born in Grand Forks, North Dakota, 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. 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 and was a regular on a top-rated network TV show. When she signed a contract with Lawrence Welk, she became the only country performer featured on national television at the time.

In 1970, Lynn moved to Nashville and began turning out a steady stream of well-received recordings. During this time, one of those rare sessions occurred: Lynn and producer Glenn Sutton entered the studio to record Joe South's "Rose Garden." What emerged was a bit of magic. The song climbed to the top of the country charts, cracked the Top Five on the pop charts and transformed the young singer into a national celebrity. More hits followed, including a Top Ten duet with Gary Morris.

The album Rose Garden, earned Lynn 16 gold albums worldwide and went platinum in the United States. She received an astonishing 32 tributes for the blockbuster performance, including a Grammy for Best Female Vocal Performance and an Academy of Country Music award for Best Female Artist.

Lynn's personal interests are far-reaching. She is a champion horsewoman and has worked with the Special Riders of Animaland, a horseback riding therapy program for children. Her philanthropic interests are longstanding--one of her records was chosen for the Christmas Seals Campaign.

Lynn has sung for presidents and the Queen of England, has been featured on numerous TV shows, and has demonstrated her acting talents in an NBC Movie of the Week, Country Gold and her own CBS TV special. Throughout her career Lynn has served as an ambassador for country music, both broadening its appeal and proving that a country artist can have major success on national television
