Canadian music legend Anne Murray will release her autobiography, "All of Me," in late 2009, her publisher has announced.
"After being on tour for most of my adult life, the time was right to stop and reflect," Murray said in a statement.
"The years pass so quickly when you're on the road, trying to raise a family, going into the studio and dealing with all the other pressures that come with the business. Besides, I thought it was important to do this memoir, while I can still remember things."
Murray has sold a reported 50 million albums over her career. She has also won four Grammy awards in the United States, and 24 Juno awards in Canada. Her recording career, which started in the late 1960s, continues despite regular rumors of retirement.
Alfred A. Knopf Canada will publish the book, and the deal was arranged by Murray's manager, Bruce Allen.
"We are thrilled to be publishing what is sure to be one of the most sought after memoirs of 2009," says Michael Schellenberg, Knopf Canada's associate publisher and acquiring editor of the book. "We all grew up with Anne Murray. She is one of Canada's most enduring music legends -- and a beloved, admired figure well beyond the music field."
