Get ready for an incredible night with "Bill Anderson & Moe Bandy" in 2017!
“Bill Anderson,” known as “Whispering Bill,” a nickname hung on him years ago as a result of his breathy voice and his warm, soft approach to singing, is back in Branson. “Bill” is one of the most awarded songwriters in the history of country music, a million-selling recording artist many times over, television game show host, network soap opera star, author, spokesman for a nationwide restaurant chain, and a consummate onstage performer.
At the age of nineteen, he composed the country classic, City Lights, and began rapidly carving his place in musical history. Along came hit songs like Po’Folks, Mama Sang A Song, The Tips Of My Fingers, 8X10, and the unforgettable country and pop smash, Still. His compositions were recorded by such diverse musical talents as Ray Price, Porter Wagoner, James Brown, Debbie Reynolds, Ivory Joe Hunter, Kitty Wells, Faron Young, Lawrence Welk, Dean Martin, Jerry Lee Lewis, Aretha Franklin, Walter Brennan and many others.
“Bill” has been voted 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 voted membership in the Nashville Songwriters Hall of Fame. The State of Georgia honored him by choosing him as only the 7th living performer inducted into the Georgia Music Hall of Fame and in 2001 he received the ultimate honor, membership in Nashville’s prestigious Country Music Hall of Fame.
He won Song Of The Year honors in both 2005 and 2007 for helping to write Whiskey Lullaby for Brad Paisley and Allison Krauss and Give It Away for George Strait. He also won a Dove award for co-writing the Country/Gospel Recorded Song of the Year, Jonah, Job, and Moses for the Oak Ridge Boys.
“Moe Bandy” is famous for his love of traditional country music about cheatin’, the rodeo, and everything else that makes an unforgettable country song! He’s generated hits like Americana, Bandy the Rodeo Clown, I Cheated Me Right Out of You, and I Just Started Hatin’ Cheatin’ Songs Today, just a small sample of his 40 Top Ten hit songs. After performing in his own, popular theater here for many years, “Moe Bandy” will be welcomed back ‘home’ to Branson with open arms!
