Bill “Whisperin’ Bill” Anderson may be known for his soft vocal style, but his UNPRECEDENTED accolades and awards shout from the rooftops. He has released more than 40 studio albums, seven No. 1 singles and 29 Top 10 singles, and is a six-time Songwriter Of the Year award-winner. As a Grand Ole Opry member for more than 50 years and a member of the Country Music Hall of Fame since 2001, Anderson is one of the most decorated songwriters and performers in country music history -- and an UNPRECEDENTED one at that, having earned the distinction of having an entry on the Country charts for seven consecutive decades – a record held by no other songwriter in history. His penned hits include "Whiskey Lullaby," (Brad Paisley/Alison Krauss), "A Lot Of Things Different," (Kenny Chesney), "Give It Away,” (George Strait), and his latest, “Country” (Mo Pitney), among others. At only nineteen, Anderson composed his first country classic, “City Lights” in his home state of Georgia, where he studied journalism at UGA. Anderson then moved to Nashville, signed a recording deal with Decca Records, and began releasing hit after hit. Fan-favorites include “Po’Folks,” “Mama Sang A Song,” “The Tips Of My Fingers,” “8X10,” and the unforgettable smash, “Still.” At the age of 40, he was inducted into the Nashville Songwriters’ Hall of Fame. At age 23, he became the youngest writer to be named Country Songwriter of the Year by BMI – a record only beat by 21-year-old Taylor Swift. In 2002, he was the first recipient of the prestigious BMI Icon Award. UNPRECEDENTED not only as a songwriter, but also a radio and television host, Anderson has starred on "ABC’s The Better Sex," "Fandango," "Country’s Family Reunion," "Larry’s Country Diner," and hosted radio shows as well as the legendary Grand Ole Opry.
