About John Anderson
County music star
John Anderson was born and raised in Florida, and started to first get his taste of music when he played in a rock band during
his teens. Initially, his influences were rock bands like the Rolling Stones and Jimi Hendrix, however, it was when he moved
to Nashville in 1971 when he really started to pursue country music. There in Nashville, Anderson began playing in clubs at
night while working odd jobs during the day, including working as a roofer for Nashville's famed Grand Ole Opry House.
performing in clubs for a number of years, Anderson was signed in 1977 with Warner Bros. Records and managed to hit the Billboard
Country Hot 100 chart later that year with his song "I've Got a Feelin' (Somebody's Been Stealin')". By the early 1980s, Anderson
had made it to the top 10. His rendition of Billy Joe Shaver's "I'm Just an Old Chunk of Coal" made it a top 5 hit, and even
scored him a Grammy Award nomination for Best Male Country Vocal Performance. Meanwhile, the single "Wild and Blue" went on
to claim the number one spot in 1982 for two weeks straight.
Anderson's career continued to gain momentum, and his smash
hit "Swingin'" was released and quickly took the number one spot in 1983. Shortly after, Anderson won a CMA award for the
smash hit song. "Swingin'" proved to be so popular through the decades that Leann Rimes was recently nominated for a Grammy
for her reinterpretation of the song.
In the early 90s, Anderson parted ways with Warner Bros. and signed with BNA Records
to release the album Seminole Wind. This successful album marked the comeback period for Anderson, with the single "Seminole
Wind" reaching number two and "Straight Tequila Night" shooting to number one. The album was certified two times platinum
and Anderson was nominated for three CMA awards, including Male Vocalist, Song of the Year, and Album of the Year. After Seminole's
release, Anderson enjoyed success with subsequent albums including Solid Ground, which had the number one single "Money in

Music Career Achievement award in 1993, marking the culmination of his success and achievements as a country music star.
John Anderson's Breakthrough Album
John Anderson's fourth album, Wild & Blue, catapulted him to the mainstream
with his smash hit "Swingin'", which not only reached number one on the country charts, but it was also a crossover success
and managed to reach number 43 on the Billboard Hot 100. In fact, the single became the biggest selling record in the history
of Warner Bros. Records at the time. Anderson's success with "Swingin'" led to his five CMA awards that year, eventually winning
the Horizon Award and Single of the Year.
His most successful album, however, was "Seminole Wind." The album was released
in 1992 and produced the hit singles "Straight Tequila Night" and "Seminole Wind," both of which helped the album become certified
two times platinum, the highest of any of his albums.
