Kevin Marvin Anderson of Stoughton/Nashville, TN, passed away unexpectedly at age 56 from cardiac arrest on Monday, May 16, 2016 in Nashville, TN. He was born in Madison on June 24, 1959, the son of Marvin and Eunice (Bronte) Anderson. Kevin was a 1977 graduate of Monona Grove High School. His lifelong passion for music began in Sunday school at West Koshkonong Lutheran Church in Stoughton, and he was also a member of Don Ring's orchestra while in high school. Kevin moved to Nashville to attend Belmont University, but soon left to join country artist Jana Jae's touring band. A talented musician, Kevin toured the country playing music, first with Jana Jae and then with Sonny James as a guitar and backing vocals. After leaving the road, Kevin returned to Nashville to work at WSM Radio, where he served as a producer for the Bill Cody morning show, then became the WSMFM music director before working as a part-time announcer for the Grand Ole Opry. As a longstanding fixture with WSM, Kevin had the opportunity to meet and befriend many of his country music idols and other entertainers. Kevin's love of country music was second only to his love for his family. He is survived by his mother, Eunice; his siblings, Bonnee (Pete) Nelson, Beth Suddeth, Robin (Sami) Khalaf, Keith (Tammy) Anderson, and Ken (Susan) Anderson; his nieces, Nicole Nelson and Samantha Jo Suddeth; and nephews, Ryan (Francie) Khalaf, Shane (Taylor) Khalaf, Tyler (Jess) Anderson, Justin (Corinne) Anderson, Luke Anderson, Jacob Anderson, Drew Nelson, and Brandon Suddeth. He was preceded in death by his father, Marvin; and brother, Steven. In lieu of flowers, memorials may be made to the West Koshkonong Lutheran Church Endowment Fund (608) 873-9244. Please share your memories of Kevin
