“I Never Promised You a Rose Garden” singer Lynn Anderson has died at 67

This song really takes me back.

It’s Lynn Anderson’s unforgettable I Never Promised You a Rose Garden. My mom absolutely loved it and sang along whenever it came on the radio.

The recording netted Anderson a Best Female Country Vocal Performance Grammy Award, and in 1971, the Country Music Association named her Female Vocalist of the Year.

According to USA Today, Anderson died Thursday night of a heart attack at Vanderbilt University Medical Center. She had been hospitalized for pneumonia following a trip to Italy.

She was 67 years old.
