Keith Anderson biography (bio):
While growing up in Miami, Oklahoma, he played sports during middle and high school, and began his music career by playing in a band at church. After graduating from high school, he attended Oklahoma State University, where he was a member of Delta Tau Delta fraternity. During his college career, he obtained a degree in engineering, while maintaining a GPA of 3.9. He also played baseball during his college years, and was approached by the Kansas City Royals. After a shoulder injury ended his pursuit of a professional baseball career, Anderson tried bodybuilding and placed second in the Mr. Oklahoma competition.
After graduating, he accepted a position with an engineering firm in Dallas, Texas. A year and a half later, he resigned to pursue a career in music. He attended clubs at night, began writing songs, and began learning guitar from his brother, Brian.
In Dallas, he auditioned for Grapevine Opry, a show that had produced other country stars in the past. He performed on the show for three years, before performing at the Texas State Fair and Six Flags.
Due to financial difficulties, he was forced to find additional work, as a landscaper and as a personal trainer. He also enrolled in the physical therapy program at University of Texas. One month before starting, he decided to put his education on hold, and began producing his first CD.
After recording his CD in Nashville, he began marketing it to radio stations. In 2000, he put together a band. His first hit as a songwriter came in 2001, when Garth Brooks and George Jones recorded "Beer Run (B Double E Double Are You In?)". He opened for Montgomery Gentry in 2002, and performed at many events, where he earned his recording deal with Arista Nashville.
Since then, he has written songs for Garth Brooks, George Jones, Gretchen Wilson, and a number one single by Big & Rich. On the syndicated radio show After MidNite, Anderson told Blair Garner that a version of the latter song, "Lost In This Moment," will be included on his own next album, set to be released in fall of 2007. This version of "Lost In This Moment" was released on September 4, 2007.
