Country singer-songwriter Aaron Tippin is lining up a typically robust mix of casino, theater, fair and festival appearances that will keep him very busy in the coming months. The South Carolina native--who currently resides DeKalb County, Tenn.--typically plays about 90 concert dates each year, according to his label, and his 2003 itinerary is quickly filling up.
Tippin's latest album, "Stars and Stripes," was released last September. It was led by the single "Where the Stars and Stripes and the Eagle Fly." The CD's second single--a duet with his wife Thea titled "Love Like There's No Tomorrow"--was released in December.
Perhaps best known for his hits "That's as Close as I'll Get to Loving You," "You've Got to Stand for Something" and "There Ain't Nothing Wrong with the Radio," Tippin has logged six gold albums (signifying shipiments of more than 500,000 copies) and one platinum album (for shipments of over a million) over the course of his 12-year musical career.
According to his official website, Tippin worked as a farmhand, factory worker, airplane pilot, heavy equipment operator, welder and truck driver before he made it in the country music business.
