TriviaSang background vocals on "Hurricane" by Bob Dylan Working with Dylan in the early 1970s, she appeared as "Mrs. Bob Dylan" in Dylan's film Renaldo and Clara (1978), which is set during the Rolling Thunder Revue tour of 1975. In the movie she performs the song "I Need a New Sun Rising". She also sang on Dylan's 1976 album "Desire". Dark-haired singer widely recognized for her trenchant performance as country superstar Barbara Jean in the highly-praised Robert Altman's film Nashville (1975). She and Lily Tomlin were nominated for an Academy Award in the category Best Supporting Actress. Both lost. Her role is considered loosely based on that of country icon Loretta Lynn, a singer whose own success came at the cost of exhaustion, loneliness, injury, bitter rivalries, exploitation, fickle audiences, obsessed fans, and an overbearing husband-manager. Ronee performed several of her own songs as Barbara Jean, including "Dues" and "My Idaho Home". The film's score received a Grammy nomination. Her only child, Sarah Blakley-Cartwright, was born on March 11, 1988. Two albums: "Welcome Home" and "Ronee Blakley".
