INDIANAPOLIS – The Vogue in Broad Ripple welcomes Clayton Anderson at 9:00 p.m. on Saturday, Nov. 22, 2014, doors open at 8 p.m., as part of the Sun King Concert Series.
Clayton Anderson writes and sings what he knows. He grew up in Bedford, a small town in southern Indiana and pulls a lot of his musical inspiration from his home state’s pool of legends: John Mellencamp, Michael Jackson, John Hiatt, David Lee Roth and Axl Rose.
In college, Clayton decided to learn guitar and next thing he knew, he and his friends were playing local parties and bars. After he graduated, he won Kenny Chesney’s Next Big Star Competition; it was the boost of confidence he needed to reroute his life and move to Nashville.
Clayton’s first record in 2011, “Torn Jeans & Tailgates” climbed to #12 on the iTunes Country Chart, situating itself next to renowned artists like Zac Brown, Brad Paisley and Blake Shelton. He has been traveling across the country playing his own shows as well as opening up for some of country’s biggest stars, such as Blake Shelton, Jason Aldean, Eric Church, Darius Rucker and even Mr. Party himself, Jimmy Buffett.
Clayton knows he’s been very blessed. He says his success has been thanks to his supportive family, friends and incredible fans. His journey, like most, has been full of ups and downs, but he plans to always remember those who helped him along the way.
His newest album is very personal for Clayton. He wrote or co-wrote nearly all the songs on this project. Each track marks a different moment in his journey to “Right Where I Belong.”
