John Anderson, “A Woman Knows”

John Anderson, “A Woman Knows”

After hearing a Bucky Covington record, listening to new music from John Anderson is a ritual cleansing – musical purification, if you will. This is a great song about what a woman knows her man is doing, but is willing to overlook for the sake of the family. It almost paints a cheating man in a sympathetic light, but the tone of Anderson’s vocal adds depth to the lyric in a way that only a master storyteller can do. The woman of the song may be at peace with what her husband’s doing, but the singer isn’t.

  1. It’s too bad country radio isn’t more diverse, because a lot of older artists like this have been producing really remarkable work lately. Tracy Byrd, Willie Nelson, Roseanne Cash, Rodney Crowell and Dwight Yoakam come to immediate mind. It’s nice to hear artists like this make albums like they’ve still got something left to prove, even if their work is ultimately underappreciated.

  2. It’s definitely too bad that this song never had much radio play. This song sends chills down my spine during every listen. There needs to be more of these non-jingle style songs on country radio.

  3. I am partial to Krista but I will awe struck when I watched the video. The voice behind it was great as well. Thanks John for proving that you don’t have to be 17 to be a superstar.
