Singer John Anderson Entertains At Brighton Casino Tonight

OKEECHOBEE, FL. -- Having entertained crowds for more than 30 years, country musician John Anderson will bring his talents to Seminole Casino Brighton in Glades county at the Brighton Indian Reservation on Friday, March 14, for a 7 p.m.concert.

Raised in Apopka, Fla., Anderson began his career in 1977 with the release of his first single “I’ve Got a Feelin’ (Somebody’s Been Stealin’)” and subsequently placed more than 40 singles on the Billboard country music charts including five number ones – “Wild and Blue,” “Swingin,” “Black Sheep,” “Straight Tequila Night,” and “Money in the Bank.”

The release of Anderson’s fourth album in 1982 (“Wild & Blue”) actually led to his breakthrough to mainstream country. The single “Swingin” broke into the country charts and reached number one, while at the same time crossing over to the Billboard Hot 100.

One of Anderson’s signature hits, “Swingin” became the biggest selling record in the history of Warner Bros. Records. He received five nominations for Country Music Association (CMA) awards for the year. He was the winner of the Horizon Award and the song was named Single of the Year. He also received nominations for Song of the Year, Male Vocalist of the Year and Album of the Year.

Noted country artist Leann Rimes recently recorded her own version of “Swingin,” and as a result was nominated for a Grammy Award.

Anderson released the album “Seminole Wind” in 1991 and powered by the title single (which rose to number two) and the number one single (“Straight Tequila Night”), the album was certified platinum twice and he was nominated for three more CMA Awards – Male Vocalist, Song of the Year and Album of the Year.

Tickets for the show (priced at $35 per person and $50 for two tickets) can be purchased via the casino’s Cash Cage or by calling 800-360-9875.
