- (after guesting on a Howard Stern pay-per-view New Year’s Eve event) “It was the most disgusting thing I ever saw… and I hope they invite me back.”
- Her 1965 song “Society’s Child”, about a black man dating a white woman, was turned down by 22 record labels because of its subject matter before Verve/Folkways took a chance on it. It eventually sold more than one million copies.
- First musical guest (with Billy Preston) to feature on the television premiere of Saturday Night Live (1975) (11 October 1975). George Carlin was host.
- Recorded the song “My Tennessee Hills” with country legend Dolly Parton for her 2004 album “Billie’s Bones”.
- Considered for the part of Carla in Cheers (1982) (Rhea Perlman later got it).
- Studied acting with Stella Adler in an effort to improve her stage presence.
- Her stage name comes from her brother’s name, Ian.
- Divorced her husband in the early 1970s because he’d abused her, and she decided not to tolerate it or let matters go any further. Later compared her situation to that of Nicole Brown Simpson, who’d long tolerated abuse by husband O.J. Simpson – and wound up being murdered.
- Suffered a financial crisis in the 1990s, due to poor choices on the part of her management; the only way to bail herself out was to sell her publishing.
- Had her prized Martin acoustic guitar stolen at a show in the 1970s; she posted its serial number in the liner notes to her 1990s albums, requesting that it be returned.
- Was considered in some circles to have been a “one-hit wonder” twice – first in 1967 with “Society’s Child”, then in 1975 with “At Seventeen” (a mid-twenties look back at her teen years).
- Her The Smothers Brothers Comedy Hour (1967) appearance was censored in several US television markets, when she performed “Society’s Child” – her song about the then-controversial issue of interracial dating.
