Three years later, Keith Anderson is finally back

Monday, February 25, 2008 – Three years after the release of his debut, Keith Anderson will finally release his second disc. "C'mon!" is slated to drop May 20 on Columbia Nashville.

The first single is "I Still Miss You."

Anderson co-wrote 10 of the 11 tracks on the Jeffrey Steele-produced disc, pairing with the likes of songwriters Tim Nichols, Rivers Rutherford, Chuck Cannon and David Lee Murphy. He chose to include a cover of "Crazy Over You," a hit by venerable country duo Foster & Lloyd and invited the two to join him in the studio for the recording of the track.

While writing this project, Anderson was enjoying chart-topping success as a co-writer of the Big & Rich No. 1 hit, "Lost In This Moment," for which he earned a CMA Song of the Year nomination. He's also had songs recorded by Garth Brooks, George Jones and Gretchen Wilson.

"C'mon!" is the follow up to Anderson's gold debut, "Three Chord Country and American Rock & Roll," which contained hits "Pickin' Wildflowers," "Every Time I Hear Your Name," and "XXL."

CD reviews for Keith Anderson

C'mon! CD review - C'mon!
When Keith Anderson arrived on the country music scene three years ago, his debut - "Three Chord Country and American Rock N' Roll" - fully described his style. The Oklahoma native hasn't changed a bit staying with the combination of hard-rocking country and sentimental ballads, but he's chosen a title that captures the energy of the album with "C' Mon!" The title track picks up where the last album left off, but sometimes it's hard to figure out where »»»
Three Chord Country and American Rock & Roll CD review - Three Chord Country and American Rock & Roll
Keith Anderson is apparently another one of those musicians that consider it in vogue to emphasize their well trodden small town Southern roots as if that were a name check to entering the country musician's union. Anderson does just that on the title track, co-written with John Rich of Big & Rich fame, one of several they penned together. Anderson's bent really is southern rock meets Lonestar as he gives indications of wanting to be Mr. Everything as he sings of "crankin' everything from Brooks & »»»
Editorial: Walking the talk – When names like Hank Williams, Johnny Cash, Waylon and the Hag are invoked, you're talking hard core country. These are the touchstones of country , the guys who made country music what it was and still is (or maybe can be). When these folks would sing about being down-and-out and the rough-and-tumble, they knew of what they were singing about. Fast forward a few years to the country singers of today. »»»
Concert Review: Daniels wears out bows, but music endures – After each of the first few songs Charlie Daniels played, his 'fiddle tech (?)' exchanged his bow. Is this because he was playing particularly hard? Perhaps. Whatever the case, Daniels and his five-piece band clearly appeared to be giving it their all during the act's hour-and-a-half set. As it is the Christmas month, Daniels sang a... »»»
Concert Review: Rawlings easily moves out of the shadow – Every once in awhile David Rawlings moves out of the shadow of musical mate Gillian Welch to launch his own tour. While Welch, for whom Rawlings plays guitar, has the more prominent career, nights like this ably confirm that there is a reason does his own thing as well. Rawlings, who released the very fine "Poor David's Almanack" in... »»»

From A Room: Volume 2 CD review - From A Room: Volume 2
There is no bigger artist in country music today, perhaps even in American music, than Chris Stapleton. His appeal reaches beyond just the commercial country fans for his gritty bluesy approach. 2015's "Traveller" set a high bar, which was met by this year's release of "From A Room: Volume 1," which won Album of the Year in the 51st CMA Awards.  »»»

Upon first glance at the track list of Cole Swindell's fourth installment of the "Down Home Sessions" series, one may get the impression that it is a covers EP. It features several chart toppers from other artists, including Luke Bryan's "Roller Coaster" and Thomas Rhett's "Get Me Some Of That." »»»
