“Whisperin’ Bill” Anderson may be known for his soft vocal style, but his unprecedented accolades and awards shout from the rooftops. Anderson is set to release his 72nd studio album, Anderson on September 14. The 11-track project was produced by Anderson along with Thomas Jutz and Peter Cooper.
Throughout his career Anderson has had seven No. 1 singles and 29 Top 10 singles and is a six-time Songwriter Of the Year award-winner. As a Grand Ole Opry member for more than 50 years and a member of the Country Music Hall of Fame since 2001, Anderson is one of the most decorated songwriters and performers in country music history — and an unprecedented one at that, having earned the distinction of having an entry on the Country charts for seven consecutive decades – a record held by no other songwriter in history.
Anderson, recognized for his prolific songwriting at the Songwriter’s Hall of Fame Induction earlier this year, wrote on every track on the album. Anderson features collaborations with Bobby Tomberlin, Paul Overstreet, Buddy Cannon, Lance Miller, John Paul White and Jamey Johnson, who sings on the standout track and first single from the project “Everybody Wants To Be Twenty-One.”
