Perennial country star John Anderson has reunited with James Stroud, the producer behind his early ‘90s career resurgence and a long string of hits including “Seminole Wind,” “Straight Tequila Night” and “Money in the Bank.” The pair has teamed to coproduce Bigger Hands, the singer’s first release for Country Crossing records, a division of Stroud’s recently launched Stroudavarious Records. Anderson cowrote all of the album’s 12 songs and included his own version of “Shuttin’ Detroit Down,” the current hit single from John Rich, who cowrote the song with Anderson. The album’s leadoff single, “Hot Coffee and Cold Beer,” brings the singer back to his earliest hitmaking days in the ‘80s. It was one of the last songs Anderson wrote with his late friend and collaborator Lionel Delmore, his cowriter on the 1982 smash hit single, “Swingin’.” Bigger Hands is scheduled for a June 9 release.
“James and I have recorded quite a bit over the years, and he even played that signature drum track on my comeback single “Straight Tequila Night,” Anderson said. “I feel like we’re giving this one our very best effort and it is feeling pretty true to what I do.”
