If you know anything about country music, you surely know Whisperin’ Bill Anderson and his work. He is an icon and one of the most revered songwriters in Nashville. His newest project Life! is nothing short of exceptional! Again, he shows his “Hall of Fame” talents as a songwriter and a singer. Life! is full of stories that range from love to sadness to out and out silliness.
Bill also invited some friends to share the songs with him including the legendary Willie Nelson on “Bubba Garcia’s”; a fun song about a Mexican guy born in a redneck environment. Bubba Garcia opens a restaurant and serves grits and tortillas, catfish tacos and moonshine margaritas. Vince Gill makes a vocal appearance on “A Song Like This”, a “honky-tonk song about a girl in high heel shoes sitting in a bar…” Joey + Rory joined Bill on the cute song “Whisper”, about not yelling at each other—just whisper.
Life! is an amazing album with not one single “cookie cutter” song on it. Anderson has put together a creative piece of art that everyone needs to have in their collection. The album will be available in stores March 4th and is on iTunes now.
