Country singer Lynn Anderson died on Thursday. She was 67.

Anderson, best known for her song “Rose Garden,” suffered a heart attack Thursday night at the Vanderbilt University Medical Center. She had been hospitalized with pneumonia following a trip to Italy.

She continued to record music up until her death, and her latest song “Bridges” was released in June, but it was “Rose Garden” that earned Anderson her fame.

She produced the song in the 1970s, and later won Best Female Country Vocal Performance and Female Vocalist of the Year.
