      American songwriter (b. July 20, 1918, Mart, Texas—d.

Her songs, which consistently reached the Top 10 hit list, also enjoyed crossover success when recorded by such artists as the Byrds, Bette Midler, and Cher. Walker was a founding member in 1970 of the Nashville Songwriters Hall of Fame, and in 1997 the tunesmith of more than 400 songs was elected to the Country Music Hall of Fame. In 2006 Willie Nelson released the album You Don't Know Me: The Songs of Cindy Walker.
