American singer and recording artist with groups and solo. She sang radio commercials in Memphis in the late '60s before she moved to California with the group "Friends," followed by "Mad Dogs and Englishmen" on tour 1970. After signing with A&M in 1970, her first album was an immediate best-seller, "Rita Coolidge," 1971, putting her on the star track and leading to dozens of albums to her credit.

In late 1973 she married Kris Kristofferson and they often toured together before they separated in 1977. Her LPs include "Nice Feelin'," 1972, "Fall Into Spring," 1974 and "A Natural Act," 1978. Coolidge also performs American Indian music, going back to her own roots of a Cherokee heritage, along with her sister Priscilla and her niece, Laura Satterfield.

Since 1998, she has been appearing at the Big Bear, California Christmas special programs.
