The show is scheduled for airing around Thanksgiving Day. (AP Wirephoto) Big star Lynn Anderson prefers time at home By EL1ZARETII A. HARRIS NASHVILLE, Tenn. (UPI) Blonde and beautiful Lynn Anderson is a rarity in the entertainment business. One of country music's biggest female stars, she turns down a lot of offers, club dates and concert tours and refuses to go out on the road hyping herself "like a commodity or a piece of plastic." She prefers to spend her time WE DELIVER PIZZA Spaghetti Ravioli CABLES END with her husband, Glenn Sutton, their 5-year-old daughter, Lisa, and her 10 a Ward-winning quarter horses stabled near their Nashville home. "The entertainment business as a whole is really an unrealistic way to live. I convinced myself several years ago after running myself ragged on the road that you could kill yourself. 1 ended up in the hospital a couple of times with physical exhaustion and malnutrition from eating junk. "And I thought, hey, I'm not very old and I could die from this." She had visited Nashville with her parents when she was 18 and cut a record for a lark. One thing led to another and soon she had a recording contract and was twirling a parasol on the Lawrence Welk Show, singing the only country music songs on network television. Then, after several hit songs on the country charts "I Never Promised You a Rose Garden" crossed over onto the pop charts in 1971. Dean Martin called, Johnny Carson called. There were Las Vegas shows, promotional lours and every major network variety show wanted the honey-haired singer. Life became very hectic. "I'd had maybe 10 number one country records before 'Rose Garden' and we had tried to gel on the Carson show and stuff. Couldn't do it. We'd done Mike Douglas, Mm Griffin, but the big network shows were elusive. Then 'Rose Garden 1 hit and those same people -- who weren't in two months ago Top Ten records Catch a 6 Fish Fillets 16 Peg Legs Fryes for Four or Fryes for Four Keg of Slaw Keg of Slaw or 3 Fish Fillets 8 Peg Legs Fryes for Four Keg of Slaw Mix or match meals that feed four for $5.55 c Long John§ilver's: SEAFOOD SHOPPES 2435 W.

France (UPI) Russian pop music was performed outside of the U.S.S.R. for the first time when two popular music groups and two soloists appeared here at a convention of record and music publishers. The Pesniary Group kicked off the entertainment with a selection of White Russian folk songs arranged in modern rock rhythms, together with a group of contemporary songs.

MOVIE AWARDS HOLLYWOOD (UPI) - The movie academy voted special achievement awards for visual and sound effects to "The Hindenburg." when we called -- started calling me. "It was really an eyeopener. And I began to really look at things. It's not who you are or even what you do. I'd been singing the same sort of thing for three or four years .and all of a sudden it was acceptable just because it was on the pop charts. "I figured, okay, folks, just as soon as I stop hitting the pop charts they are not going to speak to me." About that time she began saying no to her agent when he called with an offer or a concert date. Her husband, who is a songwriter and produces her records, also sat down with her to look hard at the dollars and cents of being a superstar. "If you look at it from a tax angle, it doesn't make sense to work clay and night. I get into a tax bracket where 1 was working half the lime for the government. Here I was working 200 days a year, where if 1 worked 100 days a year, I would make more money." Her record sales have dropped, she said. "But so have everyone else's. Record sales are now down so badly because the economy is bad and people just don't have the money to buy records. And the price of records has increased." "I used to get so worked up about how I was doing in relation to what other artists were doing. You get worried not about youself, about your own excellence but about beating the other guy. "And that's no way to be." By UNC News Service Four University of Norhtern Colorado singing groups will wind up the winter quarter concert season tonight and tomorrow with events at Foundation Hall.
