A rival in the early 1980s to Carroll Baker and Anne Murray among Canadian country singers, Bottrell toured nationally, appearing in nightclubs and on TV, and recorded in Nashville. She received Big Country awards for 'outstanding performance, country female singer' (1979) and best country single ('The Star' 1980), and CCMA awards for female vocalist of the year (1983, 1984).

She was nominated annually 1979-86 for Juno awards as country female singer. Her career slowed in the late 1980s, but she made a comeback in 1991 with 'Lasso Your Love' for the Nashville label Cardinal. Bottrell was inducted into the Canadian Country Music Hall of Fame in 2010. That year she played the lead role in the tribute show "Patsy Cline: The Legend". In 2017 she performed at the CMA Ontario Awards gala.
