Biography

Born Lynn Rene Anderson, 26 September 1947, Grand Forks, North Dakota, USA. Anderson, the daughter of country songwriters Casey and Liz Anderson, was raised in California. She started performing at the age of six, but her first successes were in horse shows. Her quarter horses amassed 700 trophies and she won major awards as a rider at shows all over California. In 1966, recording for the small Chart label, she had a US country entry with a song written by her mother, "Ride, Ride, Ride", and then made the Top 10 with "If I Kiss You, Will You Go Away?" and "That's A No No". She secured a residency on The Lawrence Welk Show, and in 1968 married songwriter Glenn Sutton, who then produced her records. The combination of her stunning blonde hair and the catchy Joe South song "Rose Garden" ("I beg your pardon, I never promised you a rose garden") helped her to number 3 on both the US and UK pop charts. The song also topped the US country charts for five weeks. The album of the same name also went gold. Anderson regarded "Rose Garden" as perfect timing: "We were coming out of the Vietnam years, and a lot of people were trying to recover.

The song's message was that you can make something out of nothing.' Although she did not repeat her pop success, she had US country number 1s with "You're My Man", "How Can I Unlove You?", "Keep Me In Mind" and "What A Man My Man Is". She also scored with "Top Of The World" and "Wrap Your Love All Around Your Man". Sutton and Anderson divorced in the mid-70s after she was promised more than a rose garden by Louisiana oilman Harold Stream III. During this marriage, she concentrated on horse-riding and fund-raising activities, but, upon their separation in 1982, she returned to country music. She has had further country hits with "You're Welcome To Tonight", a duet with Gary Morris, "Fools For Each Other" with Ed Bruce, and "Under The Boardwalk" with harmonies from Billy Joe Royal, but she is no longer recording albums prolifically.
