Once again, Keith Anderson CD gets delayed
Thursday, May 15, 2008
– This time, the delay for Keith Anderson's second CD is two months. After having most recently been slated for a June 24 release and prior to that May 20, Anderson's "C'mon!" now is slated to drop Aug. 6.
The single, "I Still Miss You," is "active, healthy, Top 25 and climbing and still a comparatively young record in terms of how long it takes these days for a single to work its way up the charts," said SonyBMG spokesperson Chris Melancon.
Anderson's debut came out in 2004 and had hits including "Pickin' Wildflowers."

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: Kristofferson gives insight, but no easy answers
When they say music gets better with age, they're not always just talking about songs alone; sometimes they're also referring to the listener. When Kris Kristofferson sings, "Well, I woke up Sunday morning/With no way to hold my head that didn't hurt," to smartly open "Sunday Mornin' Comin' Down," he... »»»

The stunning vocal of Travis Meadows on the opening track, "Sideways," brims with honesty, pain and hard-earned wisdom as he offers a blend of confession and advice, stimulated by an experience at an adolescent addiction treatment center.
