Nancy Sinatra is an American pop/rock singer and actress, still popular for her mid-1960s hit song ‘These Boots Are Made for Walkin'. The daughter of the great Frank Sinatra, she made her debut in 1957 when she appeared on her father’s ABC-TV variety series but her popularity was limited to Europe and Japan. But in 1966 when her signature hit ‘These Boots Are Made for Walkin' hit the floor she became a household name and a favorite pin-up of troops during the Vietnam War. During the 1960s, her fashionable high boots and her appearance with colorfully dressed ‘go-go dancers’ portrayed an image of popular ‘swinging sixties’ and became a trend among young girls. Nancy became a well-known name among pop and rock music lovers between 1966 and 1967 when she charted with 13 titles, featuring Billy Strange as the arranger. She partnered with Lee Hazlewood in many of her songs and their duets soon became immensely popular among fans. Sinatra also appeared in some movies alongside famous figures like her father Frank Sinatra and the legendary Elvis Presley. Though her acting career did not stretch too long, she did achieve a lot of fame appearing alongside legendary figures in popular films. She took a lengthy break from her professional life in the 1980s due to personal reasons but returned as determined as ever and still continues to contribute to the music industry despite her advanced age.
