Biography

Lynn Rene Anderson (September 26, 1947 – July 30, 2015), was an American country singer and television personality. She is most remembered for her signature recording crossover hit, “Rose Garden”. The song was a number one hit in the United States and internationally. Additionally, Anderson had four number one singles and eighteen top ten hits on the Billboard country songs chart. She is regarded as one of country music’s most significant performers.
Born in Grand Forks, North Dakota, she was raised in California by her mother Liz Anderson, who was also a country music artist. Daughter Lynn was signed to a recording contract to Chart Records in 1966 when she was heard singing along with her mother at an industry function. Previously she had recorded some demo tapes of her mother’s songs and appeared on television in California on regional country music shows. In 1967, she had her first top ten hit with the single “If I Kiss You (Will You Go Away)”. Soon after, Anderson joined the cast of The Lawrence Welk Show where she performed country music weekly to a national audience.
In 1970, Anderson signed with Columbia Records where she was produced by her first husband, Glenn Sutton. She had her biggest commercial success with “Rose Garden”. The song reached positions on the Billboard country, pop, and adult contemporary charts, also charting in other countries and earning her a Grammy Award for Best Female Country Vocal Performance. Throughout the decade, Anderson also had number-one hits with “You’re My Man”, “How Can I Unlove You”, “Keep Me in Mind”, and “What a Man My Man Is”. She also became a television personality, with appearances on The Tonight Show, specials with Bob Hope and Dean Martin, and her own prime-time specials.
After leaving Columbia and a brief hiatus, Anderson returned with the studio album Back (1983). The album spawned three singles, including the top ten hit “You’re Welcome to Tonight”, with Gary Morris. She continued recording sporadically throughout the 1980s. This included a revival of the pop hit “Under the Boardwalk” and the studio album What She Does Best (1988). Anderson continued releasing new albums into the new millennium, such as 2004’s The Bluegrass Sessions. Towards the end of her life, Anderson struggled with alcohol addiction, but continued performing until her death in 2015. For her work as a crossover artist, she was ranked on Rolling Stone’s list of the “100 Greatest Country Artists of All Time” and CMTs “40 Greatest Women of Country Music”.
