Country music concert Saturday in Shipshewana

Country showcase set for Saturday

SHIPSHEWANA — A “Country’s Family Reunion” concert featuring Bill Anderson, Jim Ed Brown, Helen Cornelius and Barbara Fairchild is set for Saturday in Shipshewana.

Part of the Blue Gate Theater concert series, the show will take place at Shipshewana Event Center, 780 S. Van Buren St. Showtime is 8 p.m. For ticket and other information, visit the website www.riegsecker.com or call 888-447-4725.

As a Decca Records artist, Anderson — also known as “Whispering Bill” — turned out hits including “Po’Folks,” “Mama Sang A Song,” “The Tips Of My Fingers,” “8X10,” and the country and pop smash “Still.” His compositions were recorded by artists including Ray Price, Porter Wagoner, James Brown, Debbie Reynolds, Kitty Wells, Faron Young, Lawrence Welk, Dean Martin, Jerry Lee Lewis, Aretha Franklin and others.

Anderson was honored with inclusion in Nashville’s Country Music Hall of Fame in 2001. He was also the first country artist to host a network game show, starring on ABC’s “The Better Sex.” He also appeared for three years on ABC’s daytime soap opera “One Life To Live.”

For six years Anderson hosted a country music game show on The Nashville Network called “Fandango,” and later an interview show called “Opry Backstage.” He has appeared as a guest star on “The Tonight Show,” “The Today Show,” “Match Game,” “Family Feud,” “Hee Haw” and others. For seven years he hosted the “Bill Anderson Visits With The Legends” show on XM satellite radio.

Anderson has been a member of the Grand Ole Opry since 1961 and performs there regularly. He continues to tour and to record, his latest album being “Songwriter.” In 1995, Billboard magazine named four Anderson compositions — “City Lights,” “Once A Day,” “Still” and “Mama Sang A Song” — among the Top 20 Country Songs of the past 35 years.

Anderson closed out the 20th century with a pair of No. 1 hits, “Wish You Were Here,” by Mark Wills and the Grammy-nominated “Two Teardrops” by Steve Wariner. His song “Too Country,” recorded by Brad Paisley along with Anderson, Buck Owens and George Jones, won Country Music Association Vocal Event Of The Year honors for 2001.
