ICONIC SONGWRITER AND COUNTRY MUSIC HALL OF FAME MEMBER WHISPERIN’ BILL ANDERSON RELEASES “IT’S A GOOD DAY TO HAVE A GOOD DAY”
Songwriting titan and Country Music Hall of Fame member Whisperin’ Bill Anderson releases “a new ray of country sunshine” (Wide Open Country / Bobby Moore) right when our world needs it, with his single “It’s A Good Day To Have A Good Day,” available now. This is the Grand Ole Opry legend’s first release since his critically-acclaimed 73rd album, The Hits Re-Imagined, was released this summer.
Though the hopeful tune was penned by Anderson before the novel coronavirus COVID-19 pandemic, the lyrics and sentiment arrived at the perfect time. Anderson tells Wide Open Country, “We finished it in February, very fortunately. I felt like the longer I lived with it and the longer this thing dragged on, maybe this is a good, positive message we need to put out there and let the folks hear it and listen to it and hopefully draw some comfort and inspiration.”
Anderson boasts a renowned career that has seen extraordinary milestones, including his Country Music Hall of Fame induction; 59 years as a member of the Grand Ole Opry and 80 top-charting songs—37 of which were Top Ten hits in addition to seven No. 1 singles. Anderson’s record-breaking songwriting has made him the only writer to chart country songs in seven consecutive decades. The prolific songwriter has received more than 50 BMI Awards, three CMA Awards and two ACM Awards; and in 2018 he was inducted into the all-genre Songwriters Hall of Fame. Anderson continues to make his indelible mark on country music history with the release of his 73rd album, The Hits Re-Imagined. To stream or download, click HERE.
