John Anderson (born December 13, 1954 in Apopka, Florida) is a country singer and musician. He scored hits in the early 1980s with songs such as "Swingin'," "Your Lyin' Blue Eyes," "Black Sheep" and the Billy Joe Shaver-composed "I'm Just an Old Chunk of Coal." His career hit a dry spell for several years until 1991, when his single "Straight Tequila Night" came out. Subsequent hits included "Money In The Bank" and "Seminole Wind." The latter would become Florida's unofficial state anthem.
Anderson makes his home in Smithville, Tennessee, approximately 50 miles southeast of Nashville.
