The Country Music Hall of Fame and Museum has extended its “Bill Anderson: As Far As I Can See” exhibit through Sept. 25.
The exhibit traces Anderson’s story from his youth in Georgia as a baseball pitcher to his days as a sports writer in high school and DJ in college, through his contributions as a legendary artist and songwriter. Featured items include historic photos, treasured keepsakes, instruments, manuscripts and more.
Interactive touchscreens also give visitors the opportunity to dive into Anderson’s songs and songwriting process through archival materials, performance clips and exclusive interview footage where he reveals the stories behind his songs. The exhibit opened in December 2021 and was originally scheduled to close this month.
“We’re pleased to extend Bill’s exhibit, which has been popular among visitors,” says Kyle Young, CEO, Country Music Hall of Fame and Museum. “Bill Anderson is one of America’s preeminent songwriters and most beloved entertainers. We’re excited that our guests will be able to enjoy his exhibit a little longer and take in the breadth and depth of Whisperin’ Bill’s unparalleled career.”
A member of the Country Music Hall of Fame, Anderson has placed 80 records on the Billboard charts as an artist, with his singles reaching country’s top 20 more than 40 times. His songs have been recorded by James Brown, Elvis Costello, Aretha Franklin, Jerry Lee Lewis, The Louvin Brothers, Dean Martin, Willie Nelson, Charley Pride, Connie Smith, George Strait and more. As a writer, he’s placed songs on the country charts in seven consecutive decades, collaborating in recent years with artists Kenny Chesney, Jamey Johnson and Brad Paisley, among others.
