Sad news today as reports have confirmed that ‘Rose Garden’ singer Lynn Anderson has died aged 67.
A statement from the family said she passed away at Vanderbilt University Medical Center in Nashville, Tennessee, on Thursday, from a heart attack.
Many of us remember Lynn’s husky voice and rise to stardom – we was truly a country music legend.
In 1971, Lynn won a Grammy as well as the Country Music Association’s female vocalist of the year award.
Talking about her iconic song, Lynn said, “It was popular because it touched on emotions.
“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.
Her other hits included, “Rocky Top,” ”You’re My Man,” ”How Can I Unlove You,” ”What a Man, My Man Is” and “Top of the World”.
Lynn Anderson leaves behind her partner Mentor Williams and her children, Lisa Sutton, Melissa Hempel and Gray Stream.
