REVIEW WEDNESDAY - An Unprecedented Life in Country Music


From the moment I held this book in my hands I couldn't wait to begin reading. I've enjoyed Bill Anderson's musical talents since the mid 1960s - both his voice and others who recorded his songs.

WHISPERIN' BILL ANDERSON - An Unprecedented Life in Country Music chronicles almmost eighty years of his amazing journey. Eighty years!  His unique perspective of the pleasures and pitfalls on the road... both literally and figuratively... to becoming the beloved man still touring and performing today. After reading the book, I'm pretty sure if something has been dreamed up and executed in country music, Bill Anderson has at least whispered a part somewhere along the line.

The fact that Bill Anderson loves to write is not lost on those who've been a fan of his music and previous three books.  One of the many stories Whisperin' Bill shares that brought a smile -and a memory - was one some may find astonishing. The legendary Bill Anderson wrote a Country Disco song. Talk about crossing genre's! 

Here's the video from his YouTube page:



And you shouldn't wait any longer either to pick up your copy of  WHISPERIN' BILL ANDERSON - An Unprecedented Life In Country Music and come a long for the ride as he takes you from Commerce Georgia to Nashville, from a small town venue in your town to the stage of Carnegie Hall, from the radio to your favorite soap opera.  

I am giving his read:




You can catch up with Bill Anderson (if he stands still long enough) through the following social media channels:

TURNTABLE TUESDAY - Jamie Richards Band


Real Country Music is alive and well, thanks to artists like Jamie Richards

Thirteen tracks take you on a journey down the dusty red dirt road from Shawnee OK to Ft. Worth TX and every honky tonk in between. All of the songs were written by Jamie, including help from talented songwriters such as Walt Wilkins, Wayd Battle, Bruce Bouton, Mark Powell, Shannon Carpenter, and David Banning

Whether you've loved, lost a love, still in love with your soul mate, looking for someone who understands your journey or just love great country music, there is something on LATEST & GREATEST for you. 

Jamie's talented lyrics have brought praise from traditionalists as well as 'outlaws' of the genre. 
Justin Frazell joined Jamie on Real. The lyrics shoot from the hip, and pretty much sums up Jamie Richards in 2:53. 

"With LATEST & GREATEST, I feel I've put together songs that show my fans who I really am from start to finish."

Jamie Richards is a traditionalist with deep roots. You hear each fingerling of those roots delivered by the crying steel that would have made the late Don Helms proud.  

If digitally this is who Jamie Richards is, I can't wait to see him perform live. 

A prime example of what you can expect from Latest & Greatest shows in how the first single, Second Hand Smoke, has been received by Texas Regional Radio audience:

Debuting at #60 in the Top 100 Chart
Most Added
Highest Debut
Most Spin Increase
Record to Watch





If you've been doubting the existence of country music as it should be played, then I encourage you to pick up your copy of  JAMIE RICHARDS - Latest & Greatest.  The new album will be released October 14th to all digital retailers.

In the mean time, you can get acquainted with Jamie through is various Social Media channels

OUT OF THE CHUTE - Bill Anderson



Several months ago I had the pleasant opportunity to talk with the legendary Whisperin' Bill Anderson. I always enjoy talking with Bill. Aside from being an amazing songwriter, his life has been quite the journey from his early days as a DJ in Commerce, Georgia to being one of (if not THE) most awarded songwriter in Nashville. He went from being Peanut Butter Bill to Whisperin' Bill

Sadly, following our interview  I had dental surgery. Silly me to think I'd be back to work in a few days. Rather, I was out of commission for the better part of three weeks. Things around the office got shifted/ piled and my notes from our conversation have vanished. Precisely why I prefer in-person interviews that I can record rather than phone interviews where I have to depend on notes and hoping I get quotes correct. Someday, the notes will surface and all of our conversation will still be just as relevant.

One item that stuck with me was the emotion in his voice when I asked him about 'Jaybird'. Jaybird is the nickname he gave his son, Jamie. When Bill's wife was in a bad car accident, Bill had to be both mom and dad. During Opry performances, he would always say 'goodnight Jaybird', so that his son would go to sleep. When Jamie was away at college and feeling homesick, he would go sit in his car and tune in to the Opry just to hear his dad say 'goodnight Jaybird'. And if you thought the story ends there, you're wrong. Later, as a pilot for Delta, Jamie would turn on the radio in the cockpit as they flew over Cincinati to hear his dad say 'goodnight Jaybird'.

Talk about leaving a legacy for your children. I'd bet everything on the fact that with all Whisperin' Bill will leave his family, that memory will be the most important to Jamie.

In the mean time, I thought I'd share one of my favorite songs. With the hundreds of hits that Bill Anderson has had over the past seven decades (both ones he has had a hand at writing and ones he has recorded), one of my favorite songs ever written by Bill Anderson (co-written with the late Harley Allen), was recorded by Joe Nichols called, I'll Wait For You.  Here's a video clip:


Wednesday I'll be sharing my review of Bill Anderson's most recent book (he's had four published), Whisperin' Bill Anderson - An Unprecedented Life In Country Music (co-written with Peter Cooper)  I hope you'll come back to check out this fabulous book.
