Grand Ole Opry star and award-winning songwriter Bill Anderson is gearing up to release a very special greatest hits collection this summer. As Far As I Can See: The Best Of, out June 10, will include an array of his biggest career hits, along with a long lost collaboration with Dolly Parton.
“Dolly sang some demos for me (and with me) back in the early sixties when she was new in town,” Anderson explained in a statement. “One was a duet called, ‘If It’s All The Same To You,’ which had gone missing for years. UMG has recovered it and included it along with my and Dolly’s new duet in this package. That’s called connecting the dots across more than fifty years. How cool is that?”
That rediscovered demo, along with their brand new collaboration “Someday It’ll All Make Sense,” will be included on the 16-track release. As Far As I Can See: The Best Of highlights some of Anderson’s most beloved tracks from the 60s and 70s, including “Po’ Folks,” “City Lights” and “Still.” The new collection coincides with two major career achievements for 84-year-old legend: the first-time digital release of seven Anderson albums from the 1960s, and the recent opening of the Country Music Hall of Fame exhibit Bill Anderson: As Far As I Can See, which will be on display thru March 19, 2023.

Patsy Cline’s former “dream home” in Nashville is for sale, and pictures show a piece of country music history. The 4-bedroom, 3-bathroom, 2,770-square-foot house in a Nashville suburb comes with an asking price of $549,900, and pictures show that it’s been restored to the same condition it was in when it was first built in 1965.
