Country singer Lynn Anderson has died of a heart attack after being hospitalized with pneumonia. She was 67.
Anderson is best known for her rendition of the Joe South penned “(I Never Promised You a) Rose Garden” which topped both the country and pop charts in 1970 and led her to be a fixture on American TV during the 1970’s and 1980’s. She was also a breeder of equestrian horses.
Anderson actively toured and just last month released an album of gospel music. Yet “Rose Garden” proved to be her most enduring hit.
