Bill Anderson has been a member of the Grand Ole Opry for 50 years. I’ve been listening to his music all that time. He’s one of the people I mention whenever I start talking about ‘country music like I remember.” Usually comparing it to the ‘country-rock, and ‘country-pop’ that we have today.
Bill Anderson will be on stage at Ella’s in Greeneville, Tenn., on Sept. 10. It’s a very small venue, and is sure to be a sold out show. Ella’s is located at 1240 East Andrew Johnson Hwy. For more information about the show, call 423-638-5728.
If you check out Bill’s show schedule on his web site, you’ll see that he is still playing on that Opry stage a lot. But in addition to that, he has shows scheduled in Missouri, Wisconsin, Texas, and Pennsylvania, to name a few.
In addition to Bill’s seven No. 1 and 29 Top 10 hits, he has also written songs that were recorded by artists like Ray Price, Connie Smith, Lynn Anderson, Jim Reeves, Kenny Chesney and George Strait.
I know Bill is going to put on a great show in Greeneville. And, anyone who thinks they would like to go needs to get that ticket quickly, they are going to go fast.
Time to get ready for work. You guys have a great Monday.And remember, while we’re in the midst of this new summer concert (and fair) season, send me a picture or two of the shows you’ve been to. I’d love to get them posted for you.
