Actress Katey Sagal is probably best known as Peggy Bundy, the big-haired red headed mother from the hit sitcom "Married With Children." More recently, she won a Golden Globe for her performance as Gemma, the tough matriarch of a California motorcycle gang on the hit FX show "Sons of Anarchy."

Many people might not know that she actually got her start in show biz as a singer and songwriter. Sagal began writing songs as a teenager, growing up in the San Fernando Valley.

Eventually Sagal had a successful career as a backup singer, working with artists such as Bob Dylan, Etta James and Bette Midler, but she knew she always wanted to sing center stage. 

She has since accomplished that goal, and now she's back with a new album called "Covered," a collection of cover tunes, several of which she has sung on "Sons Of Anarchy."

Here's her rendition of Dusty Springfield's "Son of a Preacher Man." 

Sagal says her husband, Kurt Sutter, the creator and head writer of "Sons Of Anarchy," picks out which songs are used in the show. Sagal joins Take Two to talk about her music career.
