“A Lot of Things Different”: Hear It From ‘Whisperin’ Bill’ 1

Writing of the Song

“A Lot of Things Different” is a tune penned by Bill Anderson and Dean Dillon. The song centered on two things: having regrets in life and the yearning for second chances to make different choices. The writing of the song started over a breakfast that the two writers shared. At that time, there were not well acquainted with each other yet that time. As they began to write, the two exchanged details about their lives. That discussion about their opposite experiences in life led to the fruition of the song’s wordings. Its opening line, “I’d spent a lot more time out in the pouring rain without an umbrella covering my head,” were the words that Anderson uttered during their conversation. In just a few couple of hours, the two completed the writing of the song.

Also, on Billboard Hot 100, the song occupied the 55th spot. The track also served as B-side to the 2002 single of Chesney entitled “The Good Stuff”.

From Anderson’s Vocals

Prior to the release of Chesney’s version, ‘Whisperin’ Bill’ recorded the song as the title track of his 2001 album. If he will release his record of the song, do you think such will make it to the top of the chart? Or, will it enter at least enter the top 10?
