Gene Watson's Peers within the country music industry believe in the sheer talent of this unassuming man from east Texas, so much so that Gene is regarded by many of them as 'the singer's singer' - and rightly so!

All of Gene Watson's Peers, who were contacted during 2010, were most gracious with their time and words.

It is here, within this special part of The Gene Watson Fan Site, that you have an opportunity to read a quote from Bill Anderson, which he submitted to this site on Thursday 4 November 2010.

Sean Brady would like to take this opportunity to say 'thank you' to Bill Anderson who made a special contribution to this unique part of this online 'celebration of a Lone Star Hero'.



Bill Anderson
This quote was submitted on Thursday 4 November 2010.

'Gene Watson is a singer’s singer.

We all admire him and his talent greatly, and most of us wish we had just half the voice that he has.



He’s been very good to me over the years, recording several songs that I have written, and lending his talent to our Country’s Family Reunion shows every time he has the chance.

When Gene Watson sings a song, it has been sung. I can pay him no greater compliment'.

Thank you, Bill Anderson, for your support of Gene Watson.



Bill Anderson & Gene Watson at Ryman Auditorium in Nashville on Friday 14 December 2007

About Bill Anderson...



Bill Anderson was born James William Anderson III on Monday 1 November 1937 in Columbia, South Carolina and was raised in Atlanta, Georgia.  Bill studied journalism at University of Georgia with an eye toward sports writing and worked his way through school as a radio disc jockey, when he first tried song-writing and singing.

Bill Anderson earned a degree in journalism from University of Georgia's Henry W. Grady College of Journalism & Mass Communication and landed a job at Atlanta Constitution.  Bill also became a member of Kappa Sigma Fraternity.



Bill Anderson's composition, 'City Lights', which was written when he was nineteen years old, while he was working in Commerce, Georgia at radio station WJJC-AM, was recorded by Ray Price (Tuesday 12 January 1926 - Monday 16 December 2013) in 1958; the song was No.1 on the Billboard country music singles chart for thirteen weeks between October 1958 and January 1959.  Bill Anderson took full advantage of his big break, moving to Nashville and landed a recording contract with Decca Records.

Before signing to Decca Records, Bill Anderson recorded for the small TNT record label between 1957 and 1959, where he released three singles which failed to hit the country charts, including a version of 'City Lights'.  After signing with Decca Records in 1959, Bill Anderson left TNT.

Bill Anderson's first chart hit came with 1959's 'That's What It's Like to Be Lonesome' and he had his first Billboard Top 10 entry with 1960's 'Tips of My Fingers'.

One of the most successful songwriters in country music history, Bill Anderson was also a popular singer, earning the nickname 'Whispering Bill' because of his soft vocal style and occasional spoken narrations.

Early hits like 'Po' Folks' (1961), 'Mama Sang a Song' (his first number one, No.1 in 1962) and '8x10' (No.2, 1963) still remain among Bill Anderson's best-known hits.

Bill Anderson recorded his biggest hit and signature song, the partly spoken ballad 'Still', in 1963; the track was No.1 on the Billboard country music singles chart in April / May 1963, No.8 on the Billboard pop music singles chart in 1963, and No.3 on the Billboard Adult Contemporary chart in 1963.

Billboard Magazine subsequently named Bill Anderson's 'Still' as 'Top Country Single' for 1963.

Bill Anderson reached the Billboard country music Top 5 on a total of nineteen occasions through 1978; these hits included 'I Get The Fever' (No.1, 1966), 'For Loving You' (No.1, 1967) (a duet with regular partner Jan Howard), 'My Life (Throw it Away if I Want To)' (No.1 for two weeks in May 1969), 'World of Make Believe' (No.1 for one week in February 1974) and 'Sometimes' (No.1 for one week in February 1976) (a duet with Mary Lou Turner).

Bill Anderson hit the Billboard Top Ten country music singles chart for the last time in 1978 with 'I Can't Wait Any Longer' and, by 1982, he had stepped away from his country music career.

Bill Anderson has made several television appearances, including two stints as a game show host: 'The Better Sex' (with co-host Sarah Purcell) in 1977 and the country music-themed quiz show 'Fandango' (1983 - 1989) on The Nashville Network (TNN).

Bill Anderson has also hosted an interview show called 'Opry Backstage' and was a producer of a talent show called 'You Can Be A Star', which was hosted by fellow Opry member Jim Ed Brown (Sunday 1 April 1934 - Thursday 11 June 2015), both shows on the former Nashville Network.

Bill Anderson has been voted and nominated 'Songwriter of the Year' six times, 'Male Vocalist of the Year', half of the 'Duet of the Year' with both Jan Howard and Mary Lou Turner, has hosted and starred in the 'Country Music Television Series of the Year', seen his band voted 'Band of the Year' and, in 1975, was inducted into The Nashville Songwriters Hall of Fame.

In 1985, Bill Anderson was chosen as only the seventh living performer inducted into Georgia Music Hall of Fame.

Bill Anderson’s autobiography, 'Whisperin’ Bill', was published by Longstreet Press in 1989; the book, which he personally wrote over three years, made bestseller lists all across the south of the United States.

In 1993, Bill Anderson was made a member of Georgia Broadcasters’ Hall of Fame and, in 1994, he was inducted into South Carolina Music & Entertainment Hall of Fame.

In 1995, Billboard magazine named four Bill Anderson compositions - 'City Lights', 'Once a Day', 'Still' and 'Mama Sang a Song' - among the top twenty country songs of the past thirty-five years, more than any other songwriter.

In 1997, in Commerce, Georgia, Little Street was named as Bill Anderson Boulevard in honour of the singer / songwriter, who was formerly a disc-jockey at local radio station WJJC.



On Little Street is a small hotel where Bill Anderson penned one of his memorable country songs.  'City Lights' was recorded by Ray Price (Tuesday 12 January 1926 - Monday 16 December 2013) and was No.1 on the Billboard country music singles chart for thirteen weeks between October 1958 and January 1959.  The track reached No.71 on the Billboard pop music singles chart in 1958 and was subsequently included on 'Ray Price's Greatest Hits' (Columbia Records, 1961).

 

Bill Anderson ended the 1990s with a pair of hit singles on the Billboard Hot Country Singles & Tracks Chart, 'Wish You Were Here' (co-written with Skip Ewing and Debbie Moore) recorded by Mark Wills (No.1 for one week in May 1999) and the Grammy-nominated 'Two Teardrops' (co-written with Steve Wariner) recorded by Steve Wariner (No.2, 1999).



Bill Anderson's song, 'Too Country' (co-written with Chuck Cannon), which was recorded by Brad Paisley, along with Bill Anderson, Buck Owens (Monday 12 August 1929 - Saturday 25 March 2006) and George Jones (Saturday 12 September 1931 - Friday 26 April 2013), was awarded the 'CMA Vocal Event of the Year' Award in 2001; the track, which reached No.58 on the Billboard Country Airplay Chart in 2001, was also included on Brad Paisley's 'Part II' (Arista Nashville Records, 2001).

It was also in 2001 when Bill Anderson received the ultimate honour; he was inducted into The Country Music Hall of Fame in Nashville.

On Tuesday 5 November 2002, BMI named Bill Anderson its first country song-writing 'Icon', placing him alongside R&B legends Little Richard, Chuck Berry, Bo Diddley and James Brown as the only recipients of that award.


The video for the song 'Whiskey Lullaby', which was recorded by Brad Paisley and Alison Krauss, won Bill Anderson 'Video of the Year' and 'Vocal Collaboration of the Year' in 2004.



In 2005, Brad Paisley's 'Time Well Wasted' (Arista Records, 2005) included the track 'Cornography', which featured James Burton & The Kung Pao Buckaroos, a group which included George Jones (Saturday 12 September 1931 - Friday 26 April 2013), Little Jimmy Dickens (Sunday 19 December 1920 - Friday 2 January 2015) and Bill Anderson, with Dolly Parton as 'Miss Kitty'.

On Saturday 15 July 2006, Bill Anderson celebrated his 45th year as a member of The Grand Ole Opry.  Bill Anderson also hosts a show on Sirius XM Radio, 'Bill Anderson Visits with The Legends', where he interviews various country music legends.

Based on the 1958 release of the Bill Anderson written song 'City Lights', in 2008, XM broadcast a special and interviewed Bill to celebrate fifty years in county music.  According to BMI, various artists had recorded and released over four hundred different Bill Anderson written / co-written songs in that fifty year period.



Bill Anderson's 'Give It Away', which was co-written with Buddy Cannon and Jamey Johnson, and performed by George Strait, won the Academy of Country Music (ACM) 'Song of the Year' Award for 2006; the track, which was included on George Strait's 'It Just Comes Natural' (MCA Nashville Records, 2006), was No.1 on the Billboard Hot Country Songs Chart for one week in September / October 2006.

In November 2007, 'Give It Away' was named Country Music Association (CMA) 'Song of the Year', an award which goes to the songwriters, Bill Anderson being a co-writer.
