Carlton Anderson grew up in Cypress, Texas, a town northwest of Houston where sports dominated daily conversation and Friday night. A defensive player with a competitive streak, Anderson eventually turned to the other Texas pastime: Music. Touring, red dirt, and roadhouses are commonplace, but the musicianship and songwriter tradition are legendary. Every teenage son of the Lonestar State knows the heritage and the playlists of their heroes. Anderson’s musical awakening started with Willie Nelson, who he refers to as “his drug” and quickly advanced to George Strait and a long line of musical mavericks. Styles varied, but the common denominator was that even though they were born in Texas their music transcended borders. Anderson’s grandmother had an auto harp, but the family followed military not musical pursuits. After the service, his family found work in the oil fields surrounding his hometown.
