In the mid 1960s, with songs like "So Long Babe" and "How Does that Grab You, Darlin'?", Nancy Sinatra took the image of a girl crying over her diary for a boy who wouldn't behave and changed it to a woman who let her men know, in no uncertain terms, just how things were going to be. "These Boots Are Made For Walkin'" kicked open the doors for a whole new category of women in music. Nancy's tough girl attitude preceded women's liberation and created the first rebel chick singer. The era of the female rocker was born.
Armed with a signature style, catchy songs and memorable album covers and photo spreads, Nancy has scored more than 24 chart hits in the US and Internationally and has become a role model for young, independent women as well as an icon of pop culture.
After "Boots" went to #1 in 1966, the theme of independence and free thinking that appealed to women and men was perpetuated by "How Does That Grab You", a #7 charter and "Sugar Town", a #4 chart record. Nancy's recording of the title song of the James Bond movie, "You Only Live Twice", became an anthem for many who still request it when she performs today. Her legendary #1 record with her father, "Somethin' Stupid", is always on the "best of" lists, as are many of her duets with her mentor/producer Lee Hazlewood, including "Sand", "Summer Wine and "Jackson". Their "Some Velvet Morning" was listed as the best duet ever recorded, by the London Daily Telegraph critics.
"Nancy's combination of pristine innocence and vamp-o-rama sex appeal was a perfect expression for the ('60s)." - Karen Schoemer (Rolling Stone: Women in Rock)
"Nancy was the first woman to turn the tables on men by using the same technique perfected by Elvis Presley," - James Vickerson (Women On Top)
"Groundbreaking, heartbreaking and eternally cool." - David Wild, Rolling Stone
