Hugh had a distinguished music career highlighted by playing with the Memphis Rotary Band in the late 1920's and early 1930's. He later formed the Hugh Anderson Orchestra and played numerous dances, cotillions and parties in the late 1930's. In 1937, Hugh began a long career with Buick Motor Division and at his apex was National Car Distributor. He retired from the corporation in 1974 and went to work with a Buick dealership in Atlanta, GA until 1992. During his time of service in WWII, Hugh met Amy Dennstaedt and they were married in January of 1945. In 1997, Hugh and Amy returned to Memphis to live after a 41 year absence.
