"I beg your pardon, I never promised you a rose garden." The first thing that pops into any country music's fan's mind upon hearing these lyrics is Lynn Anderson's "Rose Garden."
Anderson's classic country song, "Rose Garden," will be turning 45 on December 26. It is such an iconic recording since it reached No. 1 worldwide, and it subsequently peaked at No. 3 on the Billboard Hot 100 charts; moreover, it was the best-selling single record by a female country artist for 27 years, up until country superstar Shania Twain came along.
Thanks to its commercial success, Anderson became the first female country artist to sell out New York City's Madison Square Garden. In 1971, "Rose Garden" won Anderson the Grammy award for "Best Female Country Vocal Performance."
Alas, Lynn Anderson passed away on July 30, 2015, but her legacy lives on forever in country music.
