Nationality: United States
Executive summary: Country music traditionalist

John Anderson established himself as a musician in the early 1980's with an approach to country music that was firmly rooted in tradition. Many of his songs became enormously popular, but problems with record labels brought his career to a halt in 1997. Some assistance from guitarist Mark Knopfler brought about a revivial in interest for Anderson in 1991, but an unwillingness to join the "young country" bandwagon again resulted in unreliable support from chickenshit industry bosses. He continues to command a considerable fan base, however, as well as respect from his peers.
