∙ From 1980 to 1994, he placed 20 singles in the Top 10 of the Country chart, including five that climbed to No. 1.
∙ His blues-leaning smash “Swingin’” was certified Gold, won the 1983 CMA Single of the Year, and was covered by LeAnn Rimes, The Mavericks, and Cledus T. Judd.
∙ On 2007’s Easy Money, Anderson got an assist from an all-star lineup of country legends, including Willie Nelson, Merle Haggard, and Keith Urban.
∙ He was inducted into the Nashville Songwriters Hall of Fame in 2014.
