John Anderson headlined the Ryman Auditorium for the first time in his nearly 50-year career on Sunday (May 21).
Performing to a packed house, Anderson ran through hit after hit, performing classics such as “Swingin,” “Seminole Wind,” “Straight Tequila Night,” “Money in the Bank” and many more.
“I was part of Waylon [Jennings]‘ last album recorded there and have been a part of Marty Stuart‘s Late Night Jam a few times,” says Anderson. “But to have a whole evening with my fans felt very special.”
Over the course of his career, Anderson has charted more than 60 singles on the country charts, including 20 top 10 hits and six No. 1s, including “Swingin,'” “Seminole Wind,” “Black Sheep,” “Wild and Blue,” “Straight Tequila Night” and “Money in the Bank.” He has received the CMA Horizon Award (1983), CMA Single of the Year (“Swingin'” – 1983), CMA Album of the Year (Common Thread: The Songs of the Eagles – 1994) as well as the ACM Career Achievement Award (1993). Anderson was also inducted into the Nashville Songwriters Hall of Fame in 2014.
