Anne Murray talks about the dark years when she thought she was a “one hit wonder”, her children William and Dawn, her marriage and the early struggle. Anne Murray was the first Canadian female solo singer to reach No. 1 on the U.S. charts, and also the first to earn a Gold record for one of her signature songs, “Snowbird”. She is often cited as the one who paved the way for other international Canadian success stories such as k.d. lang, Céline Dion and Shania Twain. Anne’s hits included Kenny Loggins’s “Danny’s Song” (1972), “A Love Song” (1973), “He Thinks I Still Care” and her Top 10 cover of The Beatles’ “You Won’t See Me” (1974). Her all-time biggest hit “You Needed Me” (1978) was the biggest hit of her career (and her personal favorite), “I Just Fall in Love Again”, “Shadows in the Moonlight”, and “Broken Hearted Me” (1979); her remake of The Beatles’ “I’m Happy Just to Dance With You” (1980), “Daydream Believer” and “Could I Have This Dance” (1980); “Blessed Are the Believers” (1981); “Another Sleepless Night” (1982); “A Little Good News” (1983); 1984’s “Just Another Woman in Love”, “Nobody Loves Me Like You Do” and “Time, Don’t Run Out On Me” (1985). Murray married Bill Langstroth, music producer in 1975. They have two children – William (born 1976) and Dawn (born 1979), a singer-songwriter and artist who has recorded with her mother a number of times. Bill died in 2015. Anne is currently 71 years young!
