Country Icon Lynn Anderson Dies.

NASHVILLE, Tenn. • Lynn Anderson, whose strong, husky voice carried her to the top of the charts with “(I Never Promised You a) Rose Garden,” has died. The singer first rose to stardom in 1996 with the release of her single “Ride, Ride, Ride.” In 1971, Lynn — who was also a regular performer on Lawrence Welk Show — was awarded a Grammy Award for Best Female Country Vocal Performance.

Her parents, Casey and Liz Anderson, were songwriters; her mother wrote Merle Haggard‘s “(My Friends Are Gonna Be) Strangers” and “I’m a Lonesome Fugitive.” Anderson was just 19 years old when she released her debut single, “For Better or for Worse,” a duet with Jerry Lane, in 1966. Although she was signed to an independent label, the exposure helped her nab a deal with Columbia Records in Nashville. “He was absolutely wholesome,” she said of Welk in a 1987 interview with The Associated Press. “He felt country music was coming into its own and deserved to be on national TV. The song did not chart, but her next single “Ride, Ride, Ride” did, and Anderson’s third single, “If I Kiss You (Will You Go Away),” earned a Top 5 spot on the country charts.

Country singer Lynn Anderson allegedly suffered a heart attack and was pronounced dead at Vanderbilt University Medical Center in Nashville, Tennessee on July 30, a new report claims. The 67-year-old country music legend, who’s best known for her hit “Rose Garden,” had reportedly been hospitalized for pneumonia after returning from a vacation in Italy, according to TMZ. He’s one of my heroes and always will be.” And it was “Rose Garden” that sealed her country music legacy, earning her a Grammy and Country Music Association’s female vocalist of the year award in 1971. “It was popular because it touched on emotions,” she told the AP. “It was perfectly timed. It was out just as we came out of the Vietnam years and a lot of people were trying to recover. “This song stated that you can make something out of nothing.

It fit me well and I’ll be proud to be connected to it until I die.” She made television appearances with such stars as Lucille Ball, Bing Crosby, John Wayne and Tom Jones and she performed for presidents Nixon, Ford, Carter and Reagan. Always continuing to pave the road for those to follow,” Reba McEntire says in a press release. “I loved her music and her love for horses. “Rose Garden” was a song I sang in high school in our Kiowa Cowboys High School band. Her 2004 album, The Bluegrass Sessions, earned a Grammy nomination for Best Bluegrass Album, and earlier this year, she released a gospel album, Bridges. “It was a pleasure to record with Lynn,” says Duane Allen of the Oak Ridge Boys, who are featured on a track on Bridges. “I remember the first time we saw her at the Utah State Fair. Lynn is survived by her country songwriter father, Casey Anderson, her partner, Mentor Williams, and her children, Lisa Sutton, Melissa Hempel and Gray Stream.
