Aaron Tippin is known as a tireless man full of enthusiasms. He’s a pilot, farmer, winemaker, outdoorsman, bodybuilder and devoted family man.
He’s also a country music hitmaker.
Tippin, who will be performing at The Clarion at Brazosport College on Friday, November 1, has released nine studio albums and two compilations, with five certified gold and one platinum.
Along the way, the South Carolina-based songwriter has charted more than 30 Billboard Hot Country singles, including three No. 1 hits and a slew of other Top 10 songs.
Among Tippin’s hits are “There Ain’t Nothin’ Wrong with the Radio,” “That’s as Close as I’ll Get to Loving You,” “Kiss This,” “I Wouldn’t Have It Any Other Way” and “My Blue Angel,” among many others.
He’s also known for his patriotism and support of American troops. After the attacks of 9/11, Tippin recorded his popular and emotional anthem, “Where the Stars and Stripes and the Eagle Fly,” and has since journeyed to Iraq and Afghanistan to sing for the troops.
Not to be forgotten, however, is Tippin’s support for the working man and woman. In 1990, he ripped country music wide open with his uncompromising song, “You’ve Got to Stand for Something.” Most recently, he’s released a collection of songs, titled “Overdrive,” that salutes America’s truck drivers.
Tippin’s November 1 show at The Clarion is sponsored by Bristow and The Dow Chemical Company and is part of the celebration and dedication of the new terminal for the Texas Gulf Coast Regional Airport. The concert begins at 7:30 p.m.
Tickets are $65 for adults, $55 for seniors and Brazosport College employees and $25 for students and children.
