Three Chord Country and American Rock & Roll is the debut album of American country music artist Keith Anderson. It features the singles "Pickin' Wildflowers", "XXL", "Every Time I Hear Your Name", and "Podunk", all of which charted in the Top 40 on the Billboard Hot Country Songs charts. A remixed version of the title track, featuring Steven Tyler of the rock band Aerosmith, was to have been released as the album's fourth single (following "Every Time I Hear Your Name"), but this single mix was withdrawn before it could chart, and replaced with "Podunk" as the fourth single. The album has been certified gold in the United States by the RIAA.
