About the Author

Bill Anderson is a songwriter, country musician, longtime Grand Ole Opry member and performer, and inductee into the legendary Country Music Hall of Fame.

Peter Cooper is a senior lecturer in country music history at Vanderbilt University's Blair School of Music, writer-editor atthe Country Music Hall of Fame and Museum, and former music writer for the Tennessean. He is also a touring musician and GRAMMY-nominated music producer.


Whisperin' Bill Anderson is so filled with easy tales that you'll feel like you just pulled up a chair by a dear old friend. . . . Anderson has a gentle, playful sense of humor that shines in his best memories and, through his recollections, we get to know singers and a way of doing business that are both long gone. But this isn't entirely a happy-happy book: readers also see the not-so-sunny sides of a fledgling (and racist) recording industry; of touring, before investors got involved; and of being an older star in a 'new century.' While anyone can read this book, I think fans of old-time country music will love it best because it contains all the tales you'll want to know. For you, start Whisperin' Bill Anderson, and you'll be hooked before long.--Terri Schlichenmeyer "The Clermont Sun "
Whisperin' Bill Anderson takes us on a roller coaster ride with Anderson, leaving us with stories as memorable as his songs. Indeed, many of his songs, such as 'Mama Sang a Song, ' grow out of his experiences. Anderson's new autobiography is worth reading just for the opportunity it gives us to take in his sparkling, wink-and-a-nod voice that speaks of his own foibles with laughter and grace.--Henry Carrigan "No Depression "
