Bigger Hands is the twentieth studio album of country music artist John Anderson. It was released in 2009 under the Country Crossing label. The album produced the single "Cold Coffee and Hot Beer." Anderson co-produced the album and co-wrote all of the tracks, and includes his version of "Shuttin' Detroit Down," a protest song he wrote with John Rich, who included it on his 2009 album Son of a Preacher Man from which it was released as a single. Also included is the song "How Can I Be So Thirsty," which was also recorded by co-writer Jerrod Niemann on his 2010 album Judge Jerrod & the Hung Jury.


Anderson remarked that he did not make the decision to release "Cold Coffee and Hot Beer" as the lead single, but instead it was "selected by committee." He stated that he believed there are "four or five good singles on the record." [3]
