Anderson grew up in Hendersonville, and after briefly leaving for college, law school, and legal practice outside Nashville, Tennessee, he returned home with his wife, Brittany. Together, they have a rescue dog named Tipper, and enjoy hiking, cooking together, and frequenting the movies. Every now and then, Anderson will brew a batch of beer in his kitchen, which has been generously described as “good enough.” You can find him rooting for the Demon Deacons and Rebels throughout the fall and winter.
