Nancy Sinatra will always be remembered for a role in ”These Boots Were Made for Walkin.”
Nancy Sinatra was born on June 8, 1940, to Frank Sinatra and Nancy Barbato Sinatra.
She’s the oldest of their three children and the family moved to Hasbrouck Heights in New Jersey during their early years.
Nancy recalled in an interview with The Guardian, “We had a lovely little house there, but you could get to the windows from the street—once people knew he lived there, they would come to get a glimpse, which worried my mother because I was a tiny little toddler, and she didn’t want anybody stealing me from the front yard.”
Nancy grew up in riches and one could think she got into fame but it wasn’t so. She was close to being dropped by her father’s record label. She went on to improve herself, taking part in acting, piano, and voice lessons.
She went on to produce one of the most iconic music, “These Boots Are Made For Walking.”
Nancy Sinatra told Los Angeles Magazine in 2016, ”I knew it was a hit the first time [writer-producer] Lee Hazlewood played the bass line on his guitar in my mother’s living room. When I heard the track in the studio, I knew then and there it would be a number-one record.
I even told Lee to release the track without the vocal! The fact that it has been embraced by generation after generation of little girls is proof of its staying power. I was the lucky one to record it and I think the fashion helped it along. Girls always want a pair of boots.”
Nancy got married to Tommy Sands in 1960 and divorced a year after.
She said in 2016, ”My advice to young people is don’t get married so young. Have an affair.”
In 1970 she got married to Hugh Lambert, but he died of cancer fifteen years later.
She stepped out of the spotlight to raise her two daughters, Amanda Erlinger and AJ Lambert.
“I’m blessed to have two kids who care about my legacy,” Nancy told The Independent.
Her two kids and grandchildren never stopped supporting her and worked tirelessly while compiling her album.
Nancy is doing well for herself today and has opened a boutique where people can order CDs, exclusive merchandise, and signed items.
