Known for her confessional lyrics and raspy, smoky vocals, Melissa Etheridge stormed onto the American rock scene in 1988. That was the year of her critically acclaimed self-titled debut album, which led to an appearance at the 1989 Grammy Awards. For several years her popularity grew around such memorable originals as "Ain't It Heavy." She has collected an Academy Award, two Grammy awards (15 nominations), and ASCAP's Songwriter of the Year honor.
