Lynn Anderson – Rose Garden

September 25, 2009 | 1970, Country, Female, Top 40

I have seen Rose Garden by Lynn Anderson listed as a One-Hit wonder. While it may be true that this was the only song that may have crossed over to the Pop charts to any one who was listening to Country Music in the late 60′s and early 70′s she sure wasn’t a One-Hit artist.

The song was a Number 1 hit on the country charts for five weeks and managed to reach as high as Number 3 on the Pop charts.

This was also the name of an album she released in 1971. Until Shania Twain’s 1997 album Come On Over, it was the biggest selling album by a country female singer.

Anderson won the Grammy for Best Country Female singer in 1971 for this song.

She was also a horsewoman winning 16 National Championships, eight World Championships and several celebrity championships.
