Lynn Rene Anderson (born September 26, 1947) is a multi-award-winning American country music singer known for a string of hits throughout the 1970s and 1980s, most notably her country-pop, worldwide mega-hit "(I Never Promised You a) Rose Garden." She has charted 11 No. 1, 18 Top-10, and more than 50 Top-40 hits. Anderson's crossover appeal and regular exposure on national television helped her become one of the most popular and successful country singers of the 1970s.

In addition to being named "Top Female Vocalist" by the Academy of Country Music (ACM) twice and "Female Vocalist of the Year" by the Country Music Association (CMA), Anderson has won a Grammy Award, People's Choice Award and an American Music Award (AMA). She was named Record World Magazine's and Billboard Magazine's Female Artist of the Decade (1970–1980). Anderson was the first female country artist to win the American Music Award in 1974, as well as the first to headline and sellout Madison Square Garden that same year.

Anderson debuted in 1966, at the age of 19, and had her first hit with Ride, Ride, Ride. After a series of Top-10 hit singles on the country charts during the late 1960s, Anderson went on to sign with Columbia Records in 1970. Under Columbia, she had her most successful string of hits. Her signature song, "(I Never Promised You a) Rose Garden," remains one of the biggest selling country crossover hits of all time. In addition to being a mega country hit, the song also went to No. 3 on the Billboard Pop Chart and reached the top of the charts in several countries around the globe, an unprecedented achievement at the time. CMT ranks "(I Never Promised You a) Rose Garden" at No. 83 on its list of the "100 Greatest Songs in Country Music History." Lynn Anderson continues to record and remains a popular concert attraction, regularly headlining major casino showrooms, performing arts centers, and theaters.
