She was born in the mining town of Springhill, Nova Scotia on June 20, 1945. She got her start on a CBC-TV show, Singalong Jubilee. She first recorded for a small Toronto label, Arc Records, one of Canada's earliest record companies. Her big break came with Capitol Records and her first single Snowbird, written by Gene McLellan, who also wrote Put Your Hand In The Hand, recorded by Ocean on Arc Records.
Anne has charted 28 times on the Billboard Hot 100, 54 times on the country chart and has also had 41 Adult Contemporary hits, all between 1970 and 1987!
