One to Watch
This week the All-American country crooner, Keith Anderson makes his debut on the FML. Anderson was born in the tiny, rural town of Miami, Oklahoma, near the Arkansas boarder. His dad worked as a mechanic and handyman while his mom ran a dog grooming business out of their home. As a teenager Anderson was a football superstar but also found time to play back-up to his brother on drums at their church. He graduated first in his class from Oklahoma State, with a 3.9 GPA in engineering, while playing baseball well enough to secure a spot on the draft list of the Kansas City Royals. But after a shoulder injury ended his pursuit of a professional baseball career, Anderson tried bodybuilding, where he placed second in the Mr. Oklahoma competition. The bodybuilder-turned-song-writer-turned country-crooner, describes his music as "rompin,' stompin,' slammin,' jammin' country." Now, a few years later, Anderson's own solo album, Three Chord Country and American Rock & Roll, with the debut single 'Pickin' Wildflowers' is making a dent in the country eTracks. The man who People Magazine called out as a hot bachelor, Keith Anderson is joined by Better Than Ezra and Jason Aldean who are also making their FML debuts.
Oye, My Achy Breaky Stomach
America's favorite Idol 'mistake', William Hung, has somehow convinced Billy Ray Cyrus to appear in the video for his new single, a cover of Cyrus' "Achy Breaky Heart." In addition to the 'mullet' crooner, Hung also takes on the Beach Boys and Richard Marx on his upcoming disc, Miracle: Happy Summer from William Hung. Only in America, happy Independence Day.
