Aaron Tippin

Aaron Tippin is an American singer-songwriter from Florida who is famed for his debut single 'You've Got to Stand for Something' which became an anthem for soldiers fighting in the Gulf War upon its release in October 1990. Signing to RCA Records in 1990, he had already provided songs to the likes of The Kingsmen, Mark Collie and Charley Pride, but was spotted for his hillbilly style which was desirable and popular at the time. After his debut single charted in the top ten of the Billboard Country Singles chart, he was invited onto Bob Hope's USO tour, before the release of his second album 'Read Between the Lines' (1992) which went on to sell over a million copies and produced three further top ten singles, cementing himself as a household name in country music. After a brief dip in success, Tippin parted ways with RCA before signing to Disney subsidiary Lyric Street Records and releasing 'What This Country Needs'. This saw Tippin return to the charts with 'For You I Will', and success continued with follow-up album 'What This Country Needs' (1998) which was his highest-charting album to date. In the aftermath of the terrorist attacks on the World Trade Centre in 2001, Tippin released the patriotic 'Where the Stars and Stripes and the Eagle Fly' which resonated with a country in mourning and entered the Billboard Hot 100. With a string of albums released on his own record label Nippit Records, Tippin maintained steady success and a dedicated fan base. In 2015, the Floridian celebrated the 25th anniversary of his debut release with 'Aaron Tippin 25' - a greatest hits featuring tracks from all eras of his vast career to date.
