Up-and-coming country singer Keith Anderson experienced one of the greatest football Saturdays of his life last weekend.
A Miami, OK, native, Anderson played baseball at and graduated from Oklahoma State University. The Cowboys beat then-No. 3 ranked Missouri last Saturday, a feat that moved OSU up in the polls to No. 8.
As Anderson also noted, in-state rival the University of Oklahoma lost to big rival the University of Texas.
“That was one of the great college days of my life: OU gets upset and OSU upsets No. 3, and now we’re in the top 10 for the first time in a long time.”
This weekend is homecoming at OSU, but it’s also a homecoming of sorts for Anderson.
He will open for Montgomery Gentry and Gary Allan tonight at Oklahoma City’s Zoo Amphitheatre, and then he is open of the special guests at Brooks & Dunn’s Saturday concert at Buffalo Run Casino in his hometown of Miami.
On Oct 24, Anderson will be the headliner at a show at Cain’s Ballroom in Tulsa. Here’s the breakdown of his upcoming Oklahoma shows:
