Lynn Rene Anderson September 26, — July 30, was an American country music singer known for a string of hits throughout the late s, s and s, most notably her worldwide megahit " I Never Promised You A Rose Garden. She was born in Grand Forks, North Dakota, but grew up in California, where her family moved when she was four.
Her father, Casey, was a car salesman, and her mother, Liz, enjoyed some success as a country songwriter in the s. On a trip to Nashville with her mother, she sang informally with Haggard. Slim Williamson, owner of the small Chart Records, heard this performance and promptly offered Anderson a recording deal. At this time she was appearing regularly on national television in the Lawrence Welk show and occasionally touring with the Welk orchestra.
Anderson was best known for the worldwide crossover hit that she had in with Rose Garden. The message in the song — that if you just take hold of life and go ahead, you can make something out of nothing — people just took to that.
This led to a memorable appearance by Lynn Anderson — all back-combed hair and yellow maribou feathers — on Top of the Pops. The single was No 1 in Germany and the LP of the same name from which it was taken remained for a quarter of a century the biggest-selling by a female country artist, until the advent of Shania Twain. Although she went on to perform it for five US presidents, the song made her most proud, she said, when she appeared at a concert in Texas hosted by Bob Hope for soldiers returning from Vietnam.
Following the success of Rose Garden, she became, in , the first female country singer to sell out Madison Square Garden. Yet by the end of the decade, her popularity was in decline and her last country hit of note came in She was especially popular with British country music audiences, appearing several times at the annual international festival held at the Empire Pool, Wembley, now Wembley Arena.
Her parallel career as an equestrian began when she won the California Horse Show Queen title in She competed in show horse and cutting separating a single animal from a cattle herd events for many years and raised horses at her ranch in Taos, New Mexico.
Anderson died on July 30, at the Vanderbilt University Medical Centre in Nashville, Tennessee from a heart attack at the age of She had been briefly hospitalized due to pneumonia after vacationing in Italy.
