SEATTLE — Rockstar and co-founder of Heart, Nancy Wilson, released her first solo album titled "You and Me" last spring. After 16 albums and touring the world many times over, this was finally the right time for the rock icon to release music on her own. 

The album includes a sweet tribute titled "4 Edward" to long-time friend Eddie Van Halen, who passed away last year. 

Wilson will be joining the Seattle Symphony for a highly anticipated live show as part of the Symphony’s Essential Series on Saturday, October 30, 2021. She will perform all-new arrangements created specifically for the show. The program will draw from her new solo album and will also feature Heart classics.

Wilson joined New Day NW to talk about her new album, Heart's performance of "Stairway to Heaven" at the Kennedy Center Honors in 2012, their hit song Barracuda, and more.

On May 7th, Nancy released "You and Me," her very first solo studio album.
