Lynn Anderson was born in Grand Forks, North Dakota in 1947. She died of a heart attack at the age of 67 in 2015. She had 60 country hits from 1966-89. On the Pop chart she had 6 Hot 100 singles with “Rose Garden” written by the great songwriter Joe South- being her only Top 40 hit. Back in 1970-71 this was a song I heard countless times on the car radio- both my grandfather and father listened to country radio and this seemed to be played on the hour every hour for a long time.
