What makes Stevie Nicks “The Queen of Rock and Roll”? For more than 40 years, singer-songwriter Stevie Nicks has captivated audiences around the world with her unforgettable music. Nicks has the distinction of being one of the most prolific songwriters of her generation, which has paved the way for other female singer-songwriters to excel in a male-dominated industry that often dismissed their ambition to be serious performing artists. She has influenced the work of countless other artists and musicians, such as Tori Amos, Vanessa Carlton, Sheryl Crow, Dixie Chicks, Courtney Love, Maroon 5, Sarah McLachlan, and Smashing Pumpkins.
As a member of the legendary band Fleetwood Mac and as a successful solo artist, Nicks has sold more than 150 million albums worldwide. She has earned five Grammy Award nominations for Best Female Rock Vocal Performance and one nomination with Fleetwood Mac for Best Album, which the band won in 1978 for Rumours. Nicks was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame with Fleetwood Mac in 1998.
