Singer/Songwriter Keith Anderson’s latest song “I’ll Bring The Music” sums up Anderson to a T. That is one thing that you can always say about this academic athlete from Miami, OK, who has always excelled at anything he has put his mind to, is he WILL bring the Music.
Although he has co-written hits for other artists, most notably "Lost In This Moment", the No. 1 smash for Big & Rich which garnered him a CMA and ACM Song of the Year nomination, Anderson does not write with other artists in mind. "I think I’ll always write about what I know and feel--and typically with myself in mind. However, I write a lot and I keep the songs that are really speaking to me when I’m recording, and pitch everything else to other artists", says Anderson. Anderson also co-wrote the Grammy-nominated, "Beer Run (B Double E Double Are You In?)" for Garth Brooks and George Jones, "The Bed" for Gretchen Wilson and "Barn Burner" for Jason Michael Carroll.
His debut CD, "Three Chord Country and American Rock & Roll", was certified Gold and garnered two Top 10 hits (accompanied by two No. 1 music videos), "Pickin’ Wildflowers," and "Every Time I Hear Your Name," along with two Top 30 hits "XXL" and "Podunk". This success prompted music trades Billboard and Radio & Records to name him country music’s No. 1 New Male Artist of 2005 and the top new solo country artist of the year.
It wasn’t just his music that was getting attention. Anderson was named one of People Magazine’s "50 Hottest Bachelors", and Men’s Fitness Magazine’s, "Ultimate Country Star”.
Anderson’s sophomore CD garnered the biggest hit of his career, “I Still Miss You”, which peaked at #2 and another Top 25 hit, “Sunday Morning In America”. Taking the lead with other gold and platinum artists, Anderson decided to take hold of the reigns this time by launching his music his own way and letting the fans help drive his music and passion. “I’ll Bring The Music” has had a huge resonance with the fans.” says Anderson. “As I tour all over the country, that is the song that gets them on their feet and is the song they are still singing as they head out the door. It reminds me of how “Pickin’ Wildflowers moved them”. And now Sirius XM Radio is "Dancin’ To The Beat" as it has been added to The Highway channel 59’s program, “On The Horizon”.
Other Career Facts:
Anderson has appeared on such programs as NBC’s Today, Inside Edition, Access Hollywood, the Jerry Lewis MDA Telethon, Grand Ole Opry Live, CMT 100 Greatest Duets and CMT’s Unsung Stories.
He has performed on the GAC-televised concert special, Montgomery Gentry: Free to Rock, and starred in his own GAC concert event, Three Chord Country.
He was also selected by TV’s Dr. Phil McGraw to appear as a possible love interest for star Paula Abdul on A Dr. Phil Primetime Special: Love Smart, which aired Valentine’s Day on CBS.
Keith earned a coveted slot as one of country’s hottest new talents performing for radio industry movers & shakers at the CRS New Faces Show as part of the Country Radio Seminar in Nashville.
