In the early 1980s, Anderson gained fame with hits such as “Swingin’” – the Country Music Association’s 1983 Song of the Year – “Wild and Blue,” “I’m Just an Old Chunk of Coal,” “1959,” “I Just Came Home to Count the Memories” and “Black Sheep.”

He returned to prominence in the 1990s with the release of his platinum-plus album, Seminole Wind. The lead single from that album, “Straight Tequila Night,” became a No. 1 hit on country charts. The album’s title track also reached No. 1.

He’s since released five other albums.

The 2015 Great American Trucking Show will have more than 500 exhibitors, the Pride & Polish National Championship, educational seminars for owner-operators and more.
