In 1984 Bill Anderson approached his twenty-fifth anniversary in country music. One of three people named a Top SOngwriter of ALl-Time and the holder of virtually every other award in his field, he was pretty close to the top of the world.

A good businessman as well as a great entertainer, Anderson believed in a bright future for himself and his family—his wife, Becky, and his three children. Then, in a single moment, his world turned upside down. A drunk driver hit Becky Anderson's car, and she suffered life-threatening injuries.

In this compelling account of his life, Anderson interweaves the dramatic story of his wife's accident and its irrevocable imprint on their lives with his recounting of almost thirty years in show business. The juxtaposition of the two stories movingly illustrates life's ironies and triumphs, both personal and professional.

Filled with rare honesty, warmth, compassion, and gratitude, with love for and devotion to his work and his family, Bill Anderson's story both entertains and inspires.
