John Anderson has one of the most instantly recognizable voices in country music today and is the current standard bearer for the traditional country sound. Back in 1977, he began his career with his first hit, “I’m Just An Old Chunk of Coal (But I’ll Soon Be A Diamond Someday)” and went on to have an amazing career that has spanned nearly fifty years with such hits as “Swingin”, “Seminole Wind” and “Money in the Bank”. His current album “Goldmine” includes 12 written or co-written songs on a 13 song album. Raised in Apopka, Florida, Anderson was exposed to both rock and traditional country growing up and, as incendiary rock outfits like Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers and Lynyrd Skynyrd honed their chops around him, he learned to love and play both types of music. It was the traditional country sound and especially ballads that he loved the most. Anderson moved to Nashville in 1972, working construction by day and playing honky-tonks at night. He signed with Warner Brothers in 1977, and had his first major hit with “I’m Just an Old Chunk of Coal (But I’m Gonna Be a Diamond Someday)” His first number one hit came with “Swingin” in 1982 rose to the top of the Billboard Country charts a year later at No. 1. His latest album “Goldmine” is published on his personal Bayou Boys label and includes 12 of 13 original titles that John co-wrote or wrote himself. Come and see this living legend in an intimate performance that is sure to be an event.
