The singer had been hospitalized from pneumonia
Country singer Lynn Anderson, best known for her song “(I Never Promised You A) Rose Garden,” has died at the age 67. The Tennessean confirms Anderson died Thursday night (July 30th) from a heart attack at Vanderbilt University Medical Center in Nashville.
Anderson had been hospitalized for pneumonia following a trip to Italy.
The 70s singer released her latest album, Bridges, in June 2015, featuring collaborations with the Oak Ridge Boys and the Martins.
The Oak Ridge Boys and Dolly Parton are two of many country performers who have reacted to the news of Anderson’s sudden death. “Lynn is blooming on God’s Rose Garden now,” Parton said in a statement. “We will miss her and remember her fondly.”
Just heard the sad news about Lynn Anderson. I was lucky enough to sing with her once on the @Opry. RIP Lynn…..
