Tippins Tops With "Kiss This"
Aaron and Thea Tippin each celebrated a first during the
#1 celebration for "Kiss This" at BMI (October 24): Aaron's
first chart-topper on Lyric Street Records and Thea's first
songwriting cut. While the husband and wife team have been
writing together for years, this was the first time one of
Thea's songs was included on an album (much to Aaron's relief,
he joked); in addition to her recognition as a writer, she
also collected a #1 cup as a publisher for Thea Later Music.
Joining in the congratulations were staffers from publisher
Acuff-Rose Music, Lyric Street, and co-producer Biff Watson
(his first #1 project as well). Aaron previously hit the top
spot as a writer with his 1992 hit, "There Ain't Nothin' Wrong
With the Radio." His next single will be the album's title
track, "People Like Us," which he co-wrote with David Lee
Murphy and Kim Tribble.
