The reigning queen of rock and roll turns 73-years-old today.
Stevie Nicks has been generating excitement among fans recently as more and more festivals have announced her as a headliner. She will be hitting the main stage at our local Austin City Limits Festival on October 3 and 10. The festival, which is already sold out, is one of four announced festivals that Nicks will be headlining. Stevie will be jamming out at ACL along with fellow rocker, Miley Cyrus. The two released a track together, “Edge of Midnight,” back in late 2020. The idea that the duo might perform the song together live is not completely off the table.
To celebrate the birthday of the reigning queen of rock and roll, we have put together an essential list of her most iconic songs. Her musical portfolio includes both her time as the lead of the legendary Fleetwood Mac as well as her standout solo career.
These songs showcase her incredible vocal range and songwriting skills, while also being extremely groovy and danceable. Check them out here:

Leather and Lace- Stevie Nicks (with Don Henley)
Stevie Nicks – Stand Back (Official Music Video)
Fleetwood Mac- The Chain
