About John Anderson:
Raised in Apopka, Fla., Anderson was exposed to both rock and
traditional country growing up and, as incendiary rock outfits like Tom
Petty and the Heartbreakers and Lynyrd Skynyrd honed their chops around
him, learned to love (and play) both types of music. But Anderson
resisted the call of rock ‘n roll, electing rather to pursue his country
music dreams. It was the traditional country ballads that lured him in
and changes music history, songs like Porter Waggoner’s “Green, Green
Grass of Home.”

Anderson moved to Nashville in 1972, working construction by day
(including as a roofer at the Grand Ole Opry House) and playing the
honky-tonks at night. He signed to Warner Bros. in 1977, and notching
his first major hit in 1980 with Billy Jo Shaver’s “I’m Just an Old
Chunk of Coal (But I’m Gonna Be a Diamond Someday).” Other hits,
including the classic “Wild and Blue” in 1982, solidified his status as a
powerful new voice in country music. “Swingin’,” written by Anderson
and Lionel Delmore, blew the roof off a year later, exploding to No.1 on
the Billboard Country chart, propelling Anderson to the CMA Horizon
Award, and becoming one of the most enduring hits in the country canon.

Anderson plowed through the ebbs and flows of country music (and the
country music business) throughout the ’80s, and in the early 1990s
engineered one of the greatest “comeback” runs (he never really left) in
the history of the genre. Seminole Wind, released on BNA, produced hit
singles in “Straight Tequila Night,” “When It Comes To You,” “Money in
the Bank,” and the stirring title cut. The latter would have never been
released had Anderson not stuck to his guns, a familiar refrain
throughout his career as the artist has wound his way through virtually
all of Nashville’s major labels.

Despite his music biz travails, Anderson, who has made his home in
Smithville, TN, for more than 30 years, is far from a bitter man.
Rather, he feels more than blessed, and subscribes to the mentality
expressed in Goldmine’s compelling “Don’t forget to Thank the Lord.”
