Linda Ronstadt is one of the most versatile vocalists of the modern era. With 50 million album sales and 10 Grammy Awards, she is the only artist to win a Grammy in the categories of pop, country, Mexican-American and Tropical Latin. Following early folk-music days with the Stone Poneys, Ronstadt’s first three solo efforts helped create the California country-rock movement. Her 1974 hit album Heart Like a Wheel perfected the sound, featuring “You’re No Good” and “When Will
I Be Loved.”
Ronstadt has performed on Broadway, recorded everything from lullabies to Mexican and Cuban songs and published a best-selling 2013 autobiography, Simple Dreams, A Musical Memoir. She will be inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in April 2014.
