I was saddened this week to hear that Lynn Anderson had passed away. I was a big fan of hers from her days on the Lawrence Welk show to her taking her place as a country super star. I was privileged to see her in concert at the height of her popularity in the late 60's/early 70's. I remember her as being a vibrant high energy performer that totally engaged her audience.
One of the things I remember about her is she would sometimes do songs that few performers male or female attempted. "The Auctioneer" and "I've Been Everywhere" are two that come to mind. Country Music has lost another rare talent at her passing.
Here are some of my favorite Lynn Anderson songs:
