John Anderson Comes Out Swingin’ With New 40-Song Album

John Anderson Comes Out Swingin’ With New 40-Song Album

John Anderson is celebrating his four-decade career with a new 40-song album, 40 Years and Still Swingin’.

The new two-disc album features both new tunes and fresh takes on many of his No. 1 hits, including “Swingin’,” “Black Sheep,” “Wild and Blue,” “Straight Tequila Night” and “Money in the Bank.”

“This year has started out on fire for us and no sign of slowing down,” says John. “I feel great and am enjoying this part of my 40-year career more than any other time I remember. This two-disc set was long overdue and has the hits you’d expect, but also includes a few previously unreleased songs that didn’t make it onto past albums for one reason or another, but I felt they deserved a chance to be heard. It’s always nice to walk down memory lane, but we aren’t resting either.”

In addition to more than a dozen upcoming tour dates, John is featured in the new exhibit at the Country Music Hall of Fame: American Currents: The Music of 2018.
