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, with their daughter and rescue dog, Anderson and Brittany 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.
