Abby Anderson hails from Southlake, Texas. The rising singer-songwriters started taking piano lessons at the age of 5 and, despite almost calling it quits at one point, stuck with it until she graduated high school. She graduated high school early and moved to Nashville when she was 18 to pursue her dream.
Abby’s career has gone from strength to strength – she’s opened for some of country’s biggest artists, like Kelsea Ballerini, Brett Eldredge and Chase Rice, and made her Grand Ole Opry debut in 2018 where she received a standing ovation.
Abby credits Elvis Presley as her greatest musical inspiration and says that if she could collaborate with any artist, past or present, it would be the King. Her powerful and dreamy voice is definitely reminiscent of old-school rock and roll, soul and classic country, and manages to make these relatable to the modern-day young woman.
After the success of her EP, "I’m Good", which included her hit “Make Him Wait”, Anderson released her much anticipated follow-up single “GOOD LORD”, which she describes as a love letter to her boyfriend, as well as an accolade to her grandma, who used the phrase ‘good Lord’ whenever something really great happened.
She’s also released a cover of “Shallow” from A Star is Born with her fellow artist and her “best friend in country music”, Jimmie Allen, and they performed it live for the first time at C2C in London.
To highlight all of the exciting moments happening with Abby Anderson recently, she was selected as our Rising Country artist for April 2019 - where she sat down with Madeleine Molly before her biggest international performance at C2C Festival 2019.
Madeleine Molly spoke to Abby Anderson about everything from musical inspirations to English breakfast tea, how she's become a social media star and how she manages to make being a "freak" look cute!
