    I asked Bill during one of the interviews I have done with him. I want to this was in the 90’s. I asked him what he wanted to be remembered for. He said I want to remembered as a pretty good old boy. I have met him a number of times and done several interviews with Bill. He is a good old boy and then some. This is not a first time thing for him to go out of his way for his fans. One of the good guys out there who actually gets it. You are one in a million Bill! God Bless You!

    I always enjoy HGTV and your show on Friday nights. Even if they are reruns I still enjoy watching them over and over.

    I enjoyed this story. I like the ones who will talk to a person as if they really mean a lot for them being in the audience. You made that Lady’s day. She will praise you to all her friends about how wonderful you are. Thank you very much for replying back to them

    You must have made her as happy as you made me the day I met you at the NYS Fair, Syracuse in the 70’s. You autographed your picture for me, we went on the double Ferris Wheel and it was a memory I will never forget..Thank you for your kindness to strangers…

    When I first saw Bill Anderson at a show in 1968 after the show he sign autographs. The last show I saw of his was in 2015 and after the show Bill signed autographs. Most singers now are surrounded by bodyguards and are at a run to leave as soon as the show is over. But Bill is not just a singer but a kind HUMAN. He knows that at the price to see a concert now days is not cheap and he wants to make sure you remember the time you saw Bill Anderson in concert. After the show they tell everyone they meet I went to see Bill Anderson in concert and he took the time to autograph and album or picture and then he took the time to shake my hand and say some kinds words to me. Bill realizes this is the way to get new fans and to make sure the old fans keep coming to his concerts. This is the reason that I’m glad to say that I got to meet Bill Anderson. Not only because he a song writer and a great singer but because he’s a kind and generous HUMAN.

    What a great story. You are an awesome man. I love the Country Family Reunion shows and have all of the DVD’s, Still waiting for the Merle Haggard one to be mailed but my favorite one is the one dedicated to you and your songs. Thank you for bringing good old country back for us to enjoy. Someday I hope to see you in person.

    That was a very kind thing to do. It makes me proud to be a long time fan. (Some day maybe I will hear you pronounce my first name…Just tell me to dream, right?)

    That is really a touching story ! So happy for her. I would hate to think I would have to wait until I was 99 years young before I got to see “Whispering Bill Anderson” I have followed you since you were here in Salisbury,Md. in 1963. Whenever you were close,I was there. And especially enjoyed all
    the times I went to Commerce, Ga. to see you. Kinda miss those days, but Thankful for them & all the friends I have made while enjoying Bill !
    Thanks for all the years of enjoyment. ! By the way, thought you might like to know Bill Phillips, (son of Bill & Charlotte Phillips, who had W.I.C.O.)
    passed away July 9th. Same day you were in Lancaster, Pa. What A Show. Great seeing you, Always ! Sarah Hopkins , Salisbury, Md.

    That is a wonderful story and happy the lady got to see you. You are always
    nice for autographs and taking pictures. Thank you. She is ten years older than I.
    I hope to get an autograph and another picture with you, too, in August. I saw you
    at the Opry about three years ago and at the MIM, Phoenix before that. Never tire
    of watching you and others on CFR. Keep it up.
