A country music staple, Anderson is a member of the Country Music Hall of Fame, a 56-year member of The Grand Ole Opry, and a member of the Nashville Songwriters Hall of Fame. Making a lasting mark as both an entertainer and a songwriter, Bill Anderson has had a long and more than just slightly successful career.
He is one of the most awarded songwriters in history of country music. Penning songs for country’s greats, such as Porter Wagoner, Ray Price, Connie Smith, Jim Reeves, Conway Twitty, Eddy Arnold, Roy Clark, Brad Paisley, and George Strait, many of Anderson’s songs are now country classics. The Billboard Music Industry named him their first country songwriting icon. As if that isn’t enough, it has been documented that over 400 different Bill Anderson-written or co-written songs have been performed and released.
