Legendary Songwriter Hall of Fame and Country Music Hall of Famer ‘Whisperin’ Bill Anderson revisits some of his biggest hits made famous by him and other artists, on this, his 73rd album. Spanning nearly 60 years, the collection includes new versions of 10 of his best tunes, including “Whiskey Lullaby,” “Po’ Folks,” “City Lights” and “Give It Away.”
At 82, Anderson brings a gravitas to the heavier songs (“Whiskey Lullaby” belongs in the canon of saddest songs ever) and a lightheartedness to tunes like “Po Folks” with a low-key production that keeps the focus squarely on Anderson and his delivery. Just as it should be.
