9. Ann Wilson

Throughout the month of February, 102.9 WMGK will count down the 20 greatest classic rock singers decided by our listener vote. 

We’ll dedicate daily blocks to one singer who’s made the list every weekday throughout the month.

MGK will celebrate Ann Wilson on Thursday, Feb. 16.

Ann Wilson helped Heart make its way into the conversation with some of the top rock & roll bands of the 1970s. Her work singing lead vocals for “Crazy On You” on the album Dreamboat Annie in 1975 helped her build a reputation as one of the best female singers of all time. “Magic Man” and “Barracuda” also grew as two of Heart’s biggest hits.

She was inducted into the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame in 2013 as a member of Heart. Her sister Nancy Wilson also plays guitar in the band.

Ann’s career has earned her the #9 spot on the list in 2023.
