Bill Anderson / Jamey Johnson

Bill Anderson and Jamey Johnson’s Premiere New Music Video

Positioned between classic cars at the Lane Motor Museum in Nashville, songwriting titan and Country Music Hall of Famer Bill Anderson and country outlaw Jamey Johnson bring to life their song “Everybody Wants To Be Twenty-One” in their new video, which premiered on Rolling Stone Country. The song, co-written by Anderson and Johnson, illustrates dual perspectives of the young and old fondly wishing they were again, twenty-one. 

Everybody wants to be 21                               
Full of life and life full of fun
The young wish they were older
And the old wish they were young 
Everybody wants to be 21

“Everybody Wants To Be Twenty-One” will be released as a featured track to digital retail and streaming Feb. 22, in addition to being available on Bill’s 72nd album, Anderson

“I’m proud of this video because it allows the song to be the star. It’s simply a younger guy and an older guy reflecting on life and how, for different reasons, both wishing they were twenty-one years old,” said Anderson. “Jamey Johnson is the rarest of talents, and I was thrilled when he and I were able to get our schedules in sync long enough to make this video happen. Hopefully, it will speak to people on both sides of the generational line.” 

“I consider myself fortunate to have spent so much time writing songs with Whispering Bill Anderson. I feel I have received a valuable education from a true master of our craft,” Jamey Johnson shared. 

“Everybody Wants To Be Twenty-One” follows the Country Music Hall of Famer’s historic 2018 filled with honors and milestones, including NSAI’s Kris Kristofferson Lifetime Achievement Award and induction into the prestigious Songwriters Hall of Fame. Anderson capped off the holiday season with “Waffle House Christmas,” which culminated in a viral music video featuring Kid Rock, Tanya Tucker, Gretchen Wilson, Jeannie Seely, Erin Enderlin, Joe Denim, Ira Dean, Kelly Ford and many more.  

Anderson was produced by Bill Anderson, Thomm Jutz and Peter Cooper, recorded and mixed by Jutz at TJ Tunes with assistant engineer Andy Kern and mastered by Alex Mccullough at True East Mastering. Three of the tracks were penned solely by Anderson, who has written charted songs in each of the past seven consecutive decades, while the additional tracks feature venerable singer-songwriters including John Paul White of The Civil Wars and country music outlaw Jamey Johnson.
