Bill Anderson to Be Honored as Longest-Serving Grand Ole Opry Member

Country Music Hall of Famer, Bill Anderson, is set to receive a remarkable tribute for holding the record as the Grand Ole Opry’s longest-serving member in its history.

Anderson will be celebrated with a special Saturday night performance at the Opry on July 22nd. The show will include Anderson and fellow Opry members Vince Gill, Jamey Johnson, Jeannie Seely, and Ricky Skaggs and more.

With an exceptional career as one of the most acclaimed songwriters in country music and a thriving solo performer, Anderson’s induction into the Opry family took place on July 15, 1961. Remarkably, his membership has remained unbroken for an impressive span of 62 years.

Bill Anderson: As Far as I Can See, an exhibit showcasing the life and career of Anderson, is currently on display at the Country Music Hall of Fame and Museum. Due to its popularity, the exhibit has been extended until September 25. It delves into various moments of Anderson’s journey, from his early years to his unparalleled achievements as an artist, songwriter, and entertainer, solidifying his place among the most honored figures in musical history.
