Anne Murray, one of the most enduring and loved artists of all time, is honored with a commemorative radio special. The Anne Murray Duets: Friends & Legends radio special is a tribute to Murray, as well as a celebration of her newest album release, “Anne Murray Duets: Friends & Legends.”
The album features some of her signature songs re-worked into a duet format with her favorite artists and friends, who also happen to be some of the finest women of song. Narrated by Martina McBride, this radio special features selections from the new album and intimate conversations and interviews with participants Celine Dion, Sarah Brightman, Nelly Furtado, and Shania Twain.
Known for her rich alto voice and her appeal to listeners over a broad spectrum, including pop, country, and adult contemporary, Murray was the first Canadian female solo singer to reach #1 on the US charts, and also the first to earn a gold record (for one of her signature songs, 1970’s “Snowbird”). She is often cited as the woman who paved the way for other Canadian international success stories such as Céline Dion, Sarah McLachlan, and Shania Twain. To date, her albums have sold over 54 million copies worldwide.
