We are a little late getting this one posted. I apologize for that. Many of you are already aware of the fact that there has been a medical problem with one of our Country’s Chatter staffers. We are now working our way back to regular postings. This article is to tell you about the last artist who took part in the inaugural Smith & Wesley Benefit Concert on Sept. 15. We have had several articles posted about this benefit, to raise funds for the Wes and Shirley Smith Endowment. You can find the first article about this event by clicking here.
Country music veteran, John Anderson, was the last to take the stage in Ringgold, Ga. He followed Cotter Hill, Mitch Rossell, Bucky Covington and Smith & Wesley. What a perfect finish to a perfect day. For any of you who may be wondering if John is as good in front of an audience as he ever was, I can answer that for you… he is. He put on a great show for the fans. This was another one of those country concerts that took you back a few years, back to when country music was really country, I’ve been a fan for a very long time, but this was the first time I had ever been to a John Anderson show. I really hope I have the opportunity to do it again.
His acoustic performance included “Straight Tequila Night,” “”When It comes To You,” “Black Sheep,” “Money In The Bank,” “Seminole Wind,” “1959,” “Freedom Isn’t Free,” “I’m Just An Old Chunk of Coal,” and of course, “Swingin’.” He also did a new one for us, claled “If You Won’t Love Me”. And, that is just a fwe of the great songs we got to hear from John on Saturday night (9/15).
If you are a real country music fan, and love the music that we now call ‘classic country’ or ‘traditional country,’ then you need to get out to a John Anderson show. Check out his online store, too! You’ll find his album “Goldmine,” other albums, and other merchandise, including some really great shirts.
