Whisperin’ Bill Anderson: An Unprecedented Life In Country Music
is a representation of Anderson’s journey, and published by University
of Georgia Press. Read by Bill Anderson himself it features eye-opening
personal stories from his nearly eighty years of living – from early
days of radio broadcasting in Georgia, to standing alongside the
greatest country music stars in the world onstage at the Grand Ole Opry,
to meeting Elvis Presley, to being named BMI’s first ICON Award winner
in the country music genre.

Listeners can sit back and enjoy the audio book narrated by Bill
Anderson. The audio book bundle also includes a Bonus CD featuring 10
never-before released self-penned acoustic recordings by Anderson,
including smash hits like “Whiskey Lullaby” (Brad Paisley/Alison
Krauss), “Give It Away” (George Strait), “City Lights” (Ray Price) and
seven more (track listing below).

Whisperin’ Bill Anderson: An Unprecedented Life In Country Music
a 360-page representation of Anderson’s journey published by University
of Georgia Press featuring respected music journalist and
Grammy-nominated music producer Peter Cooper as a contributing writer.
It includes rare, never-before-seen photos and eye-opening personal
stories from Anderson’s nearly eighty years of living – from early days
of radio broadcasting in Georgia, to standing alongside the greatest
country music stars in the world onstage at the Grand Ole Opry, to being
named BMI’s first ICON Award winner in the country music genre.

With the 2015 success of Mo Pitney’s “Country,” Anderson has become
the only country songwriter to tally a Top 40 hit in seven consecutive
decades, and he stands today a legendary performer, who recently
celebrated his 55th Anniversary as a member of the Grand Ole Opry. The
youngest writer to ever be named “Songwriter Of The Year” (BMI) at age
23, prior to 21-year-old Taylor Swift, Anderson has certainly lived an
unprecedented life in country music. Fans, artists, songwriters and
music executives young and old revere him for his soft speaking style
that can silence a room with just a few poignant words.

But there was a time in the early 90s that Bill felt as if his words
no longer mattered. “I didn’t write much anymore because I didn’t feel
as if what I wanted to write related to what young listeners wanted to
hear,” he revealed. However, it was in 1992 that singer/songwriter Steve
Wariner helped to re-ignite Anderson’s writing career with a cover of
“Tips Of My Fingers.” The exposure the song received made Anderson test
the waters as a co-writer, and in 1994, he teamed up with Vince Gill to
write “Which Bridge To Cross (Which Bridge To Burn).”

Whisperin’ Bill Anderson: An Unprecedented Life In Country Music is available for $29.95 at Barnes & Noble, Books-A-Million, various independent book stores, and online at www.BillAnderson.com and Amazon.com.
