Few other vocalists have had a more diversified career than Linda Ronstadt. She began her career in the mid-1960s with the folk-rock group the Stone Poneys. After the break-up of the Stone Poneys, Linda entered the country music field. In 1969, with the release of Hand Sown... Home Grown, Linda became the first female singer to release an alt-country album. In 1971, she put together the band that would become America's biggest selling band, the Eagles. Linda achieved her greatest commercial success in the mid-1970s when she became the first female rock superstar and the top-selling female vocalist for that decade. During this period, she became widely known as 'The Queen of Rock' and 'The Queen of Country Rock'. Achieving superstardom during the '70s, Linda went on to sell an even greater number of albums in the '80s than she did in the '70s. Her long string of platinum albums continued throughout the '80s with several varied projects. She ended the decade with a return to popular music featuring her duets with Aaron Neville.

Linda's success extended into the '90s as well, starting off with a Grammy win for Don't Know Much and ending the decade with a Grammy nomination for Western Wall and a win with Trio II. Other Grammy-winning projects during the 1990s included another album of Mexican canciones, an album of Latin music, and a best-selling album of rock classics redone as lullabies. During this same time, she produced some of the best pop/rock music of her career with Winter Light, Feels Like Home, and her last rock album We Ran. Linda began the new millennium with her only Christmas album, A Merry Little Christmas. This was followed by an album of classic jazz standards, Hummin' to Myself. Linda's final album release was Adieu False Heart, an album of duets with Cajun artist Ann Savoy.
