Peoples Bank Theatre welcomes Aaron Tippin – who marks his silver anniversary as a recording artist this year. When Tippin began recording, Clint Black was on top of the charts, along with the Judds and Keith Whitley. His first single, “You’ve Got To Stand For Something,” with its message of standing up for one’s personal beliefs, became popular as an anthem for soldiers fighting in the Gulf War. After its release in 1991, it hit the Billboard Country Singles chart – eventually peaking at # 6. He built his brand on songs that touched a nerve with his blue-collar audience with a sound that was definitely Country. In the past decade, Tippin has recorded several musically diverse projects – including a well received 2009 truck driving album, In Overdrive. Several of Tippin’s songs, such as “Workin’ Man’s Ph.D”, are anthems that address the working class and are often patriotic, though occasionally, Tippin also records love ballads, such as “That’s as Close as I’ll Get to Loving You”.
Some of Tippin’s other hits include: “Kiss This”, “I Wouldn’t Have It Any Other Way”, “My Blue Angel”, “For You I Will”, and “Where the Stars and Stripes and the Eagle Fly”. The Aaron Tippin 25th Anniversary Celebration promises to be an unforgettable year of music and fun – After all, he ‘wouldn’t have it any other way,’ would he?
Doors open an hour before the show.
The Washington County Foster Families Foundation’s Mission:
“Our vision for this benefit concert is to assist foster parents by providing funding to be used for normal childhood activities not covered by county funds, in hopes of enhancing these children’s lives. Foster/adoptive caregivers are concerned individuals who are dedicated to providing the needs of Washington County’s children whose lives have been disrupted due to abuse and neglect. They offer food, housing, guidance, acceptance, understanding, and support for children who are unable to stay with their families. Without these committed individuals, abused and neglected children would not have a safe place to call home.”
