John Anderson has - and continues to have - a stellar career. John Anderson got his start in the early ’70s when he moved to Nashville to chase his music career. The club appearances finally paid off in 1977 when he signed his first recording contract with Warner Bros. Records. He first hit the Billboard Country chart in 1977 with the song "I’ve Got a Feelin’ (Somebody's Been Stealin')", then broke into the Country Top 40 with "The Girl at the End of the Bar" the next year. Anderson's unapologetic backwoods accent and distinctive vocal timbre helped land him in the forefront of the "New Traditionalist" movement with artists like Ricky Skaggs and George Strait.
Over his career, Anderson has collaborated with a number of different artists. He has worked with John Rich of Big & Rich on his 2007 album “Easy Money” and co-wrote Rich's 2009 single "Shuttin' Detroit Down.” Anderson’s newest album, “Years,” was released on April 10, 2020 was produced by Nashville veteran producer David Ferguson and Dan Auerbach of The Black Keys.
