A country singer-songwriter with a midwestern rock flair, Clayton Anderson grew up on the lakes of Southern Indiana — fishing, boating, and playing his guitar. As a student at Indiana University, he kicked off his music career, building a grassroots fan following playing local bars and parties. In 2008, he stepped onstage at Kenny Chesney’s Next Big Star Battle in Cincinnati and walked off as the winner. He released his debut album, Torn Jeans & Tailgates, in 2011, followed by Right Where I Belong (2014) and Only to Borrow (2016). Pre-COVID, he toured nonstop, opening for Eric Church, Blake Shelton, Jason Aldean, Jimmy Buffett, Thomas Rhett, Lee Brice, and Carly Pearce. During the pandemic, Anderson got creative by partnering with the Bud Light Dive Bar Tour: Home Edition and launching socially-distanced “Lake Tour” concerts. 2021 saw the release of “Only Us,” one of his most-streamed songs to date.
Anderson kicked off 2022 by dropping two new tunes: “Nothin’ But Net” (co-written with Christian Stalnecker (Kane Brown) and co-written/produced by Grammy-winning Dave Audé and as heard on ESPN for College Basketball Season) and “Get After It.” Co-written by Shane Stevens (“Fancy Like”) and produced by Nash Overstreet, the latter song celebrates hard work and getting the job done and can also be heard in a national Ford ad campaign. Now he’s gone back to his roots on the water, releasing fishing anthem “Show Me Your Fish,” also co-written by Christian Stalnecker and co-written/produced by Dave Audé. Stay tuned for much more to come from Clayton Anderson in 2022!
