Biography

One of Canada's most accomplished popular singers, Anne Murray was a multi-Grammy-winning pop and country artist who enjoyed numerous No. 1 hits in her native country, as well as eight Top 20 singles in the United States, including "Songbird," "Danny's Song" "You Needed Me" and "Could I Have This Dance." Murray rose to international fame in the 1970s on the strength of her polished, mellifluous voice and talent for bridging pop, country and adult contemporary tastes with her material. Her soothing style would eventually lead to over 50 million albums sold over the course of a four-decade career that spanned the singer-songwriter era, a significant sea change in country music, and her own displacement from the pop charts in the late 1980s and 1990s. Murray rebounded in the early 2000s with a string of albums that tackled classic country, traditional songbook numbers and duets with fellow superstars, which generated platinum sales and renewed interest in her music. Murray was also a significant supporter of Canadian musical talent, recording over 80 songs by writers and artists from her native country. Anne Murray's enduring popularity underscored her status as one of late 20th century pop music's most well loved figures.
