NASHVILLE, Tenn. (January 18, 2016) – As Ira Glass said, “Great stories happen to those who can tell them,” and country star Bill Anderson is living proof.

Known for his breathy voice and soft approach to singing which earned him the nickname “Whisperin’ Bill Anderson, he is slated to showcase his talent that’s both behind-the-scenes and on-stage on Saturday, February 6 as he performs on the national television series, “The Dailey & Vincent Show” (RFD-TV).
