    Acclaimed songwriter Anders Osborne has penned hits for Tim McGraw and Keb’ Mo’.  Decades into his prolific performing career, the singer and guitarist will showcase his new album, “Flower Box,” when he brings his touring band to Delaware and New Jersey this week. 

    Dave Heller visited with the New Orleans native on his tour bus Saturday, and the conversation quickly turned to the creative writing process.

    You can hear their conversation as well as an excerpt of a previously unreleased Anders Osborne song below.
