Keith Anderson bags shows, needs vocal cord surgery
Sunday, January 25, 2009
– Keith Anderson is off the road until March due to vocal cord surgery.
Following doctor's orders for complete vocal rest, Anderson canceled his tour dates for the remainder of January and February. "Anderson will undergo minor vocal cord surgery at Vanderbilt Medical Center later this month to correct a problem that - while not painful - did necessitate the cancellation of a few dates in 2008," his web site said.
"I'm grateful to be able to take this time off during the dead of winter, a typically slower time on the touring schedule," Anderson said. "I certainly look forward to hitting it full throttle in March."
Dr. C. Gaelyn Garrett, Anderson's doctor, recommended the surgery and vocal rest for the singer. "I look forward to Keith returning to normal voice use after that time," she said.
Anderson's brand new single, She Could've Been Mine, is from his sophomore LP, "C'MON!." The first single, I Still Miss You, hit number two on the Billboard chart.

Anderson's bent really is southern rock meets Lonestar as he gives indications of wanting to be Mr. Everything as he sings of "crankin' everything from ...
