Linda Hargrove (married name Bartholomew, born Tallahassee, Florida February 3, 1949; died Tallahassee, Florida October 24, 2010) was an American country songwriter and musician. She wrote many country music hits for a variety of artists and had a respectable career for herself in the mid-1970s. She was known as "The Blue Jean Country Queen" because she usually performed in jeans and without the elaborate makeup that other female country performers of the time used.[1] After marrying and undergoing a religious conversion, she made two gospel albums in the 1980s. She put out her final album in 2005.
