Bill Anderson To Issue 72nd Album In September

Country Music Hall of Famer Bill Anderson is readying the release of his 72nd album, Anderson, available on Sept. 14.

With a pre-order, fans receive an instant download of the lead single “Everybody Wants To Be Twenty-One,” a co-written duet with Jamey Johnson. The Grand Ole Opry veteran co-wrote each of the tracks with venerable songwriters including John Paul White, Buddy Cannon, Paul Overstreet and more.

The 11-song project was produced by Anderson, Thomm Jutz and Peter Cooper, recorded and mixed by Jutz.

“You might think after my having released 71 albums during my career that I’d be tempted to yawn my way through the release of album No. 72,” expressed Anderson. “Well, that’s not the case at all. I’m looking forward to this one as much as any record I’ve ever put out. I know I’ve never enjoyed the recording process more than working here with Thomm Jutz and Peter Cooper. They had the vision…I just tried to follow their lead and bring their ideas to life. I only hope that as folks listen, they’ll feel we succeeded.”

In addition to Grand Ole Opry appearances, Anderson will tour Indiana, Missouri, Pennsylvania and Virginia in the fall, leading up to a Country Family Reunion cruise in January.
