Heart: Ann Wilson and her younger sister, Nancy Wilson, first showed the world that women can rock when their band Heart stormed the charts in the '70s with hits like "Crazy on You," "Magic Man," "Barracuda," "Straight On," "Even It Up," "Kick It Out" and many more. Not only did the Wilson sisters lead the band, they wrote the songs and played the instruments, making them the first women in rock to do so. Heart continued topping the charts through the '80s and into the '90s with huge hits like "These Dreams," "Alone," "Never" and a string of other hits that showcased the sisters' enormous talents as both musicians and singers. Across four decades and 14 studio albums, Heart has sold more than 35 million records, had 21 top 40 hits, sold out arenas worldwide, and profoundly influenced the sound and direction of American rock music while inspiring women (and guys too!) around the world to rock out in bands of their own. In 2010, Heart released its first album in a dozen years. “Red Velvet Car” received both critical and commercial acclaim, debuting in the Top 10 in Billboard’s Top 200 Album Chart. In 2012, Ann and Nancy released a memoir, “Kicking & Dreaming: A Story of Heart, Soul and Rock & Roll,” which became an immediate New York Times best seller. They also released a definitive box set, “Strange Euphoria,” a carefully considered anthology of biggest hits and best-loved songs set alongside deep catalog treasures, rarities, demos and live performances, on three compact discs and one DVD in a deluxe box. In addition, they released a new album, “Fanatic,” which features three hit singles: the title track “Fanatic,” “Walking Good” featuring Sarah McLachlan, and “Dear Old America.” The Wilson Sisters were also awarded a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame. On December 11,2012 the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame announced the induction of Heart.
