Her highest charting album, Your Little Secret was then released the following year and was distinguished by the hit single, “I Want to Come Over”. In addition to her Grammys, Etheridge has won an Academy Award for “Best Original Song”, a Juno Award for “International Entertainer of the Year” and ASCAP’s “Songwriter of the Year” Award.
