The Legacy of Linda
American singer Linda Ronstadt is an award-winning superstar of both pop and country music. She has sold more than 100 million albums worldwide. By the end of the 1960s, Ronstadt had become a solo act. She put out several albums with a series of backing bands, one of them the nucleus of the group that would become the Eagles. Following a stronger reception for her 1973 album Don’t Cry Now, Ronstadt finally hit it big with Heart Like a Wheel (1974).
In addition to the hits “You’re No Good” and “When Will I Be Loved,” the album featured a cover of Hank Williams’s “I Can’t Help It (If I’m Still in Love with You),” which earned the singer the first of her 12 Grammy Awards.
