Rock and Roll Hall of Fame inductees Ann and 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” and so many more. Not only did the Wilson sisters lead the band, they wrote the songs and played the instruments too, making them the first women in rock to do so. Heart continued topping the charts through the ’80s and ’90s with huge hits like “These Dreams,” “Alone,” “What About Love,” “If Looks Could Kill,” “Never” and a string of other hits that showcased the sisters’ enormous talents as musicians and singers.
Through the years, Heart has sold more than 35 million albums, performed sold-out arena shows worldwide, and found their way into the soundtrack of American life through radio, motion pictures, television and associations with branded sponsors. Today, songs made famous by Heart are heard in every aspect of contemporary culture.
Nearly 35 years after their first big hit, the sisters were back in the Billboard Top 10 in 2010 with Red Velvet Car and a Top 5 DVD “Night at Sky Church.” In 2012, Fanatic continued Heart’s current chart success debuting in the Billboard Top 25 and spawning two hit singles “Fanatic” and “Dear Old America.” The group also released a comprehensive CD box set entitled Strange Euphoria, filled with rarities and previously unreleased treasures that met with acclaim from critics and fans alike.
In September 2012, Ann and Nancy released their first-ever memoire “Kicking & Dreaming: A story of Heart, Soul and Rock and Roll,” spending several weeks on the New York Times bestseller chart. That same year, the duo were awarded a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame and in December they learned that 36 years after the release of Dreamboat Annie, Heart had been inducted into The Rock and Roll Hall of Fame.
As a fitting finale for an extraordinary year, Ann and Nancy were asked to perform “Stairway to Heaven” as the finale to the 2012 Kennedy Center Honors tribute to Led Zeppelin. In addition to visibly moving Robert Plant, Jimmy Page, and John Paul Jones, their rendition brought the entire Kennedy Center audience to its feet.
In 2013, the Wilson sisters fulfilled a personal goal and created a special once-in-a-career holiday concert with special guests in their hometown of Seattle. Entitled “Heart & Friends: Home for the Holidays,” this special show featured guest performances by Shawn Colvin, Sammy Hagar, Richard Marx, and Pat Monahan and was released on DVD/CD and Blu-ray in November 2014.
Another outstanding year for the Heart sisters, 2014 found Ann sitting in with The Roots on “The Tonight Show” and both Ann and Nancy sitting in with the Foo Fighters on “Late Show with David Letterman.” In May, they celebrated ASCAP’s 100th birthday in Washington, D.C. at a star-studded event at the Library of Congress attended by members of the joint houses of Congress. On November 7, Heart memorabilia and personal belongings were featured in the Julien’s Rock ‘n Roll Icons & Idols auction. Later that month, Heart appeared alongside Stevie Wonder and many other great performers at the 83rd Annual Hollywood Christmas Parade.
