Listeners of The Bobby Bones Show may remember the name Heath Sanders. About a year ago, Sanders came on the show after being discovered online for his cover of a Chris Stapleton song. Sanders is an oilfield worker from Arkansas and Bones thought he sounded amazing from the video online. He decided to invite Sanders onto the show after a phone call. During his performance on the show, he performed in front of a panel of three big names in the country music scene to see if he should pursue a career in music and they all said yes.
Fast forward a year, Sanders stopped by the show today to talk about his first single ever dropping as well as what life has been like since his first appearance on the show and opening up for Bobby's comedy tour in Arkansas. Sanders actually quit his job at the oilfield and moved down to Nashville. He signed to Justin Moore's management company as well as a publishing deal with Sony. He also just recently dropped his first single "Bloodline," the song he first played on The Bobby Bones Show over a year ago as his first songwriting endeavor. After being single for over ten years, Sanders just recently got a girlfriend, who he has been dating for 3 months now. She will be moving in with him into a house in Nashville after he's settled in. Sanders says that he will definitely be marrying her, she's totally the one so them moving in together so fast is nothing big. After hearing that he swoons her with the songs he writes, it totally makes sense. Sanders even wrote a song for her the day after he met her called "Beautiful Like You" and then played it for her.
Without the opportunity to play on the show, Sanders may still be an oilfield worker, he credits Bones to "changing his life." Watch the full interview on The Bobby Bones Show below as well as Heath Sanders performance here.
