Keith Anderson to bring ‘three chord country’ to casino Dec. 14Written by Matt Liasse | | email@example.com
A fair amount of Keith Anderson’s music is about having a good time, something he tries to portray on stage.
“We just try to have as much fun as we can,” Anderson said. “[We] kind of bring the party on stage.”
Anderson will perform a free show at Hollywood Casino Toledo at 9 p.m. Dec. 14.
Growing up in Oklahoma shaped Anderson’s love of “three chord country and American rock ‘n’ roll,” which was also the title of his 2005 debut album. That style showcases his musical influences, which include Steven Tyler, Willie Nelson and Kenny Rogers. In fact, Anderson said recording with Tyler a few years ago was a highlight of his career. It was a blast watching Tyler sing lyrics he wrote, Anderson said.
The man behind “Pickin’ Wildflowers” and “I Still Miss You” hasn’t performed with a full band in a while, only doing acoustic sets lately. He took a break after his mother died in 2008.
“It was just tough,” Anderson said.
Anderson said since then he’s been writing his best music. That music will appear on a new, still untitled album due next year. He is gearing up to tour for the album in 2013. Some songs that may appear on the album can be streamed on his website, keithanderson.com, including “Tight White Wife Beater” and “Wild Girls.”
