About the Artists
Linda Ronstadt is a Grammy-award winning singer, songwriter, and musician with over 30 studio albums and 38 Billboard Hot 100 singles. She began her career in the 1960s, during the emergence of folk rock and country rock movements, as the lead singer of a folk-rock trio with Bobby Kimmel and Kenny Edwards. After moving to a solo career, Ronstadt was labeled as the first female “arena class” rock star, becoming one of the top-grossing concert artists of the decade. Known as the “First Lady of Rock,” Ronstadt has performed on Broadway, become one of the most successful female recording artists in American history, and has opened doors for women in rock and roll. Ronstadt was also inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 2014.
Another Rock and Roll Hall of Fame artist, Jackson Browne started with the Nitty Gritty Dirt Band in the mid-60s, and has written songs for artists like Tom Rush, Gregg Allman, the Eagles, the Byrds, and more. In the early 1970s, Browne’s “Doctor My Eyes” entered the Top 10 in the US singles chart. Browne’s success continued throughout the decade with albums including Late for the Sky and The Pretender. In 1977, he released his LP Running on Empty, which became his biggest commercial success by using new material, live concert performances, and recordings he made on buses, in hotel rooms, and while backstage. Browne joined the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 2004.
