Anderson, born in Miami, Oklahoma, is one of country music's most popular newcomers to country music both as an entertainer and songwriter. Before signing to a record deal, Anderson was one of several co-writers on "Beer Run (B Double E Double Are You In?)", a duet by Garth Brooks and George Jones, released in late 2001.
Anderson was signed as a recording artist to Artista Nashville in 2005. His debut single "Pickin' Wildflowers" was released that year, as the lead-off single to his debut album "Three Chord Country and American Rock & Roll". Counting "Pickin' Wildflowers", the album produced a total of four hit singles on the Billboard Hot Counrty Songs charts, and was certified gold in the United States.
In addition to his own material, Anderson co-wrote Big & Rich's single "Lost In This Moment", a number one hit on the country music charts in mid-2007. Anderson switched to the Columbia label in 2007, and his second album, C'mon!, was released on August 5, 2008. The first single from the album, "I Still Miss You" has now become his biggest country hit to date.
Exciting concert entrainment will continue in the Wheeling Island showroom including an evening with Marty Stuart & Travis Tritt on November 13, Foghat on November 15, the return of Las Vegas' #1 Male Revue: Thunder From Down Under on November 28 & 29, Debby Boone Christmas Show on December 12 and BeatleMania LIVE on December 30 & 31.
