The product of a Turkish father and a Russian-Polish mother, Neil Sedaka was born in New York and raised in the city's perennially ethnic Brighton Beach neighborhood. After demonstrating a high level of musical aptitude in his second grade choir class, his teachers told his parents of his knack for musical inclination, prompting his mother to purchase an upright piano for her young son. Sedaka learned quickly and soon won a scholarship to the Juilliard School of Music's Preparatory Division for Children. Though Sedaka's mother had dreams of her son becoming a well known, classically trained pianist, he was discovering the new sounds of pop music and composing music that clearly reflected this. Soon, after meting up with other musicians, Sedaka was writing songs that were receiving a good amount of attention from commercial audiences in the late 1950s. Although, Sedaka's fan base started to wain after the British invasion of the 1960s changed the musical landscape. Never one to shy away from a challenge, Sedaka updated his sound and won over a wide swath of fans. It has been decades since Sedaka first emerged with his early songs in the 1950s, but with a characteristic style and wholesome image, Sedaka has managed to remain a figure who's forever affixed to the American pop music scene.

John Anderson is a country music artist from Apopka, Florida, who got his start in rock n' roll before discovering the music of George Jones and Merle Haggard. He moved to Nashville, Tennessee, in the early 1970s, taking odd jobs during the day so he could play his music at night clubs, and finally he garnered enough attention to be noticed by Warner Bros. Records, who signed him in 1977. Anderson released his eponymous debut album in 1980 and found a mainstream audience in 1982 with his fourth studio album, Wild & Blue. He parted ways with Warner Bros. in 1986, after six years and eight LPs, but continued to release an impressive stream of albums into the 1990s, including his most commercially lucrative record, 1992's Seminole Wind. Though his widespread attention has faded into the 21st century, Anderson has maintained a dedicated fan base among country music audiences and continues to perform and release new material.
