Hey, Linda.

For those of you who don't know, this lovely songstress from Tucson, Arizona, started a Rock revolution in the 1970's. Her folk/pop sound and multifarious vocal stylings helped preserve her popularity for over four decades, and she received multiple Grammy Awards and charted numerous gold and platinum albums throughout her career. Singer, song-writer, and producer, Miss Ronstadt became one of the most successful lady singers in American history. Her down-home sound came straight out of her family's living room, according to one of many biographies, in which she confessed that every tune on her more than 30 solo albums was inspired by music she heard her family sing, or heard on the radio before the age of ten. So cool.

I grew up listening to her greatest hits records, and still can't get enough.
