John Anderson biography (bio):
John first traveled to Nashville in 1972 at the age of 17, eventually signing with Warner Bros. Records in 1976. He first hit the record charts in 1980 during the "Urban Cowboy" era in Nashville. His decidedly backwoods accent and distinctive vocal timbre helped land him in the forefront of the "New Traditionalist" movement with artists like Ricky Skaggs and Reba McEntire. In 1983 his career rose on the strength of his million selling hit "Swingin" earning him two Country Music Association awards. However a few years later his career cooled off until the 1992 release of his double platinum selling album Seminole Wind. His 1993 follow-up effort "Solid Ground" reached gold selling status along with his original "Greatest Hits" album released in 1984. John has accumulated five number one hits and twenty-three top-ten hits in his career. He has had commercial success with hard country songs like "Your Lying Blue Eyes" and the Billy Joe Shaver penned "I'm Just An Old Chunk of Coal" as well as more lighthearted efforts like "Black Sheep" and "Goin' Down Hill." In 1993 he received the Academy of Country Music's Lifetime Achievement Award. As of 2007, John has become an honorary member of the MuzikMafia.
Anderson makes his home in Smithville, Tennessee, approximately 50 miles southeast of Nashville with his third wife Jamie (married in 1983) and has two daughters, Brionna and Alexa.
