There’s an old saying: “If you want someone’s attention, whisper.” Bill Anderson has been using that philosophy for almost fifty years to capture the attention of millions of country music fans around the world, en route to becoming a member of the Country Music Hall of Fame and one of the most popular, most enduring entertainers of our time. Bill Anderson has been voted Songwriter of the Year six times and Male Vocalist of the Year. His hits include Po’ Folks, Mama Sang a Song, The Tips of My Fingers, 8×10 and Still. His compositions have been recorded by countless artists including Ray Price, Jerry Lee Lewis, Steve Wariner, Kenny Chesney, Brad Paisley and Alison Krauss.
From his very humble beginnings in the tiny community of Bolt, West Virginia, came a man who has risen to the greatest heights in Country Music. At just 4’11” tall, he is considered to be Country Music’s foremost entertainer. Little Jimmy Dickens has been a member of the Grand Ole Opry since 1948 and became a member of the Country Music Hall of Fame in 1983. One of his most endearing songs includes Take an Old Cold Tater and Wait which earned him the nickname of Tater from Hank Williams Sr. Other hits include Country Boy and A-Sleepin’ at the Foot of the Bed. One of Little Jimmy Dicken’s best-know classics is May the Bird of Paradise Fly Up Your Nose.
