Folk rock legend Jackson Browne has consistently maintained a stellar music career since his debut in 1972. He emerged with a remarkable self-titled debut album, which entered the Billboard 200 and peaked at number 53. The highly-acclaimed record, which spawned his early hits, “Doctor My Eyes” and “Rock Me on the Water,” sold over one million copies in the U.S. After his moderately successful debut, Browne moved on to become the icon of the ‘70s. He dropped four more albums within the decade, including the monumentally successful 1976 effort, The Pretender, and its follow-up, Running on Empty. His fifth studio album, Running on Empty, was released in 1977. The album, which peaked at number 3 on the Billboard chart, spawned three chart-performing singles, StayThe Load-Out,” “You Love the Thunder,” and the title track. The album’s phenomenal success led to over seven million copies sold in the U.S. and almost one million copies sold in other countries.
Over the next decade, Browne entered the ‘80s with a bang by hitting number 1. His 1980 effort, Hold Out, topped the Billboard charts, while singles “Boulevard” and “That Girl Could Sing” made waves on the Pop Singles chart. The album was later certified double-platinum in the U.S. after selling over two million copies.
Browne’s 50-year career has spawned 15 studio albums – eight are certified platinum or multi-platinum, while three are certified gold. Since his debut album, Browne has consistently performed well on the charts. His 2014 effort, Standing in the Breach, peaked at number 15 on the Billboard 200. In 2021, Browne released his first album in almost a decade. Downhill from Everywhere entered the charts in ten countries, including the U.S and U.K. The album also notably earned him his seventh Grammy nomination when it received a Grammy nod for Best Americana Album.
Although Browne has yet to win a Grammy, he has received other prestigious honors. In 2004, he was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame by rock legend Bruce Springsteen. He was also inducted into the Songwriters Hall of Fame three years later. Apart from music awards, Browne has received several humanitarian awards, such as the Chapin-World Hunger Year Humanitarian Award, the John Steinback Award, and the Gandhi Peace Award.
