A child music prodigy reared in Long Beach, California, Andersen could play music before he could even talk. He is an accomplished songwriter and proficient on multiple instruments, including the ukulele. Each day, Andersen gives every new friend he meets at the Country Music Hall of Fame his signature guitar pick and a challenge…”remember why they came to Nashville and to take time to enjoy the music they came here to find.” Andersen not only remembers but lives and breathes the music of Nashville every day. With all his experience in Music City, Andersen is a guitar virtuoso in every sense.
