Continued touring and extra exposure through a multitude of artists covering her songs gained Mitchell an ever-growing fan base. In 1969 she followed up her debut album with Clouds, a contemplative folk rock album that charted in the Top 40 in both Canada and the United States and won Mitchell a Grammy for Best Folk Performance in 1970.
Shortly after winning the Grammy, Mitchell released her third album Ladies of the Canyon. The album was a hit and charted in Australia, Canada, the UK and the United States. The album also featured the songs “Woodstock” and “Big Yellow Taxi” which have lived on through the years in numerous cover versions.
