Ep 56: Bill Anderson
To kick off Season 4 of Pitch List, we are absolutely honored to have songwriting and country music legend Bill Anderson on the show! Considered one of country music’s most significant songwriters, “Whisperin’ Bill” has released an impressive 45 studio albums and is an esteemed member of the Grand Ole Opry, Country Music Hall of Fame and Songwriters’ Hall of Fame. He’s not only written award winning songs like “Whiskey Lullaby” (Brad Paisley, Allison Kraus) and “Give It Away” (George Strait), but has recorded seven #1 hits himself and juggled a successful television career to boot. Join us as Bill tells some hilarious and humbling “before-they-were-famous” stories about him and his friend Roger Miller, talks about how writing songs he loves has carried his career through over 8 decades of a changing genre (including through the country disco trend), and more. Plus, don’t forget to listen to Bill’s newest single, “It’s A Good Day To Have A Good Day”.
