Mike Thomas, Program Director for KFAV says, “It’s proof that good country music doesn’t have to come from this side of the pond.”
On the heels of his second single released in the U.S., Simon was a member of an elite group of artists that were chosen to be a part of Country Music Association’s Fan Fair X, where Andersson met fans from all over the world.
Simon’s love for music developed at a young age and was heavily influenced by his Swedish upbringing, a country with great music traditions. After years of performing with bands, Simon stepped out on his own and has been blazing the trail ever since.
Simon's Nashville debut included a performance at legendary Tootsies Orchid Lounge with musicians from Taylor Swift
and Tim McGraw
's band. This performance opened doors for Simon and not long after his Music City debut, Simon recorded at world famous Ocean Way and Starstruck studios. These series of events led to his single debuting on the country breakout chart. And whether he is in Sweden, America or somewhere in between, you can be sure Simon is on a stage giving everything he has to his fans.
