By Markos Papadatos     Mar 26, 2017 in Music
Lynn Anderson's classic country album "Rose Garden" has celebrated its 46-year anniversary at the top of the Billboard country charts.
On March 18, 1971, the album reached No. 1 on the Billboard Top Country Albums charts, and it stayed there for 14 weeks. Her Rose Garden album subsequently held the record for the longest run at No. 1 by a female solo country artist for 24 years, up until Shania Twain broke the record with her album, The Woman in Me in 1995. It won Anderson the Grammy for "Best Country Vocal Performance, Female" in 1971.
The late country songstress is still remembered today by such country stars as Justin Moore, Easton Corbin and Martina McBride consistently sings "Rose Garden" in her live concerts. Trisha Yearwood also sang her hit song at the 2016 CMA awards.
Lynn Anderson's album is available on iTunes.
