On April 10, Anderson will release a new album titled, Years, featuring 10 new original songs and a special collaboration with Blake Shelton on “Tuesday I’ll Be Gone.” The new album was produced by Dan Auerbach and David “Fergie” Ferguson.
Anderson has dealt with some serious health issues recently, but the album-making process this time around seems to have been tremendous for his outlook.
We went in the studio, and I remember saying, ‘I’m going to do this like it might be my last’”
“It still could be, but now the chances of that are getting slimmer and slimmer every day. I’m doing better so I’m not hardly thinking that way anymore.” John added.
“There’s a few things that I came out of this whole deal better with. Part of it is my love for music and part of it is my appreciation for my family. But the biggest part is knowing that I might die here any minute, for who knows what reason, but I know that the good Lord already came down and touched me. There’s not a doubt in my mind.”
