Linda-RonstadtLinda Maria Ronstadt (born July 15, 1946) is an American popular music singer. She has earned 11 Grammy Awards, two Academy of Country Music awards, an Emmy Award, an ALMA Award, and numerous United States and internationally certified gold, platinum and multiplatinum albums. She has also earned nominations for a Tony Award and a Golden Globe award.

Ronstadt has collaborated with artists from a diverse spectrum of genres including Bette Midler, Billy Eckstine, Frank Zappa, Rosemary Clooney, Flaco Jiménez, Philip Glass, Carla Bley, The Chieftains, Warren Zevon, Emmylou Harris, Gram Parsons, Dolly Parton, Neil Young, Johnny Cash, and Nelson Riddle. She has lent her voice to over 120 albums and has sold more than 100 million records, making her one of the world’s best-selling artists of all time. Christopher Loudon of Jazz Times noted in 2004, Ronstadt is “Blessed with arguably the most sterling set of pipes of her generation … rarest of rarities – a chameleon who can blend into any background yet remain boldly distinctive … It’s an exceptional gift; one shared by few others.”

In total, she has released over 30 studio albums and 15 compilation or greatest hits albums. Ronstadt charted 38 Billboard Hot 100 singles, with 21 reaching the top 40, 10 in the top 10, three at #2, and “You’re No Good” at #1. This success did not translate to the UK, with only her single “Blue Bayou” reaching the UK Top 40. Her duet with Aaron Neville, “Don’t Know Much”, peaked at #2 in December 1989. In addition, she has charted 36 albums, 10 top-10 albums and three #1 albums on the Billboard Pop Album Chart.

In a 2011 interview with the Arizona Daily Star she said, “I am 100 percent retired and I’m not doing anything any more”. It was announced publicly in August 2013 that Linda had been diagnosed with Parkinson’s disease in December 2012, which left her unable to sing.

Her autobiography, Simple Dreams: A Musical Memoir, was released in September 2013. It debuted in the Top 10 on The New York Times Best Sellers List.

She is best known for her ballads about vulnerable young women from a female perspective that have been described by some music critics as “strong” and “confident.” Yearwood is a member of the Grand Ole Opry and was inducted into the Georgia Music Hall of Fame in 2000.

Yearwood rose to fame in 1991, with her debut single, “She’s in Love with the Boy“, which became her first No. 1 single and was featured on her self-titled debut album. Yearwood has continued to find much success and widespread critical acclaim releasing a further ten studio albums, which spawned eight more No. 1 singles and twenty top ten hits combined, such as “Walkaway Joe“, “The Song Remembers When”, “Thinkin’ About You”, “I’ll Still Love You More” and “I Would’ve Loved You Anyway”. In 1997, Yearwood recorded the song “How Do I Live” for the soundtrack of the movie Con Air. It became her signature song, achieving high positions and sales worldwide, and won Yearwood a Grammy Award. She has also recorded successful duets with her husband, Country superstar Garth Brooks, including “In Another’s Eyes”, which won the couple a Grammy Award.

Yearwood has sold more than 12.5 million albums worldwide and has won three Grammy Awards, three Country Music Association Awards, two Academy of Country Music Awards, an American Music Award and a Pollstar Industry Award for touring. Aside from her success in music, Yearwood has also ventured into writing, releasing three successful cookbooks, which earned her the status of two-time New York Times Bestselling author. Since April, 2012, Yearwood hosts a culinary series on Food Network, titled Trisha’s Southern Kitchen, for which she has won an Emmy Award for Outstanding Culinary Program. (Source: Wikipedia)
