As a Bill Anderson fan, I truly enjoyed reading this autobiography. There is more to his life than just writing and singing and the only flaw I found was that on occasion he comes across with a little too much ego.

Bill Anderson at the 50th annual CMA Awards. When Hall of Fame songwriter and musician Bill Anderson published his autobiography in 1989, he thought his career was over. In fact, he says, he thought it was 10 years past finished. When I wrote the first book, I kind of thought, ‘Okay, this is as far as this music career is going to go, so I guess I’ll write it down,’ Anderson says of the 1989 bestseller. But then a few years later, I kind of started out on my second career. It’s been, in a lot of ways, even more fruitful than the first one. I thought that the story might appeal to people.
