Rocky Mountain Activist Carole King
In 1971, Carole King's Tapestry was one of the best selling albums of the year. King's No. 1 hit, It's Too Late, spent 15 weeks at the top of the charts. She won four Grammy Awards for the record, and it became a landmark album for many baby boomers.
Tapestry has since become one of the biggest selling albums of all time.
Now, the singer-songwriter is focused on environmental activism, and is working to push Congress to pass a bill to help the Northern Rockies. Carole King talks with Rebecca Roberts about her work to protect the land and natural resources of the mountain west, and her legendary album.
