Country
Aaron Tippin
Twenty-five years -- a huge career accomplishment, especially in the music business. Aaron Tippin admits that he looks at his career longevity with a little bit of amazement. "I think about it and go 'Wow. What am I doing still here?' ... To be here 25 years doing it, I am the luckiest hillbilly that ever lived." The singer/songwriter was invited to join the roster of Nashville powerhouse RCA Records in 1990. Nobody was more surprised than Tippin himself, as the invitation came at a time when he had almost given up hope of success as a vocalist and instead decided to concentrate on his budding career as a songwriter. Tippin's first single, "You'e Got To Stand For Something," hit the Billboard Country Singles chart, eventually peaking at No. 6 and grabbing the attention of Linda Hope, who invited him to perform for the troops on the Bob Hope show. Hits began to pile up from there, including "There Ain't Nothin' Wrong With The Radio," "My Blue Angel," "Kiss This" and "Workin' Man's Ph.D." His distinct vocal and song style built him an audience among the blue-collar crowd, and that's what's stuck all these years.
