Whisperin’ Bill Anderson is still one of the most active legends in country music. Taste of Country recently talked with the Country Music Hall of Famer, Grand Ole Opry Star, and Nasvhille Songwriter’s Hall of Fame Member about his enduring success in the fast-paced world of entertainment.
As the most-recorded songwriter in country history, Anderson said that he always was careful to not become too intertwined as Bill Anderson, the artist and Bill Anderson, the songwriter. “What I tried to do as an artist, was to try to find the best song I could find to record. If I thought the best song, or commercial song, or the song that fit me the best was one of my own songs, naturally I would record that one first,” the legend explains. “But I never closed my eyes or my ears to songs that came in from other writers, because I knew there were wonderful songwriters out there, and I couldn’t possibly write everything that I wanted to record.” Read the rest at http://tasteofcountry.com/bill-anderson-songwriter-opry-oak-ridge-boys/
