Whisperin’ Bill Has Double the Joy Sunday

Star walk induction and new granddaughter.

Bill Anderson's son won't be at his Music City Walk of Fame induction Sunday (May 15), but the Grand Ole Opry star and songwriting legend doesn't mind.

Bill's son Jamey will be in China to adopt a little girl.

“They’re set to meet her just about the time I'll be getting that star,” Bill tells CountryWeekly.com.

“I think it'll be neat later to bring her back to the park and tell her the story of what was happening with her paw-paw the day she met her new parents.”

Bill—whose recent songwriting hits include the Brad Paisley/Alison Krauss duet “Whiskey Lullaby” and George Strait's “Give It Away”—and Keith Urban are set to get stars on the Walk of Fame. The 2:30 p.m. ceremony is open to the public.
