30 JUNE 2002

A Very Happy Birthday, Aaron

I send you warm and happy hopes for joy to touch your day.
I send you little thank-you thoughts for smiles you've brought my way.
I send you heartfelt wishes that your dreams will all come true --
Not only on your birthday, but each time I think of you.

Happy Birthday ~ Happiness Always

Aaron Tippin and California

WOW!!  What a great time I had in California!  Great weather; NO humidity!  Got to see eight shows in twelve days and visit with family and friends.

Hanford Fox Theatre, Hanford, CA ~ 12/13 June
Shasta County Fair, Anderson, CA  14 June
Konocti Harbor Resort, Kelseyville, CA ~ 15 June
Sonoma-Marin Fair, Petuluma, CA ~ 19 June
Del Mar Fair, Del Mar, CA ~ 20 June
Reno Rodeo, Reno, NV ~ 21 June (missed-car trouble)
San Joaquin Fair, Stockton (2), CA ~ 22 June

Teddy came with Aaron and the guys the first several shows.  He is getting to be a real 'showman,' just like his daddy.  Thea and Thomas fly out to Konocti Harbor and spent the next several days, including Father's Day, with Aaron and Teddy.  By the way, I got to see Aaron with Teddy and Thomas at the kiddie pool in Konocti Harbor.  Really cute, but I did not take any photos; that was Aaron's family time.  Thea also has family on the west coast, so I'm sure it was fun for them, especially since Aaron and the guys were out west the entire month of June.  Teddy flew home with Thea and Thomas after the Sonoma-Marin Fair.

The highlight of my California trek was that I hit my 300th Aaron Tippin show at the San Joaquin Fair in Stockton.  What a surprise when Aaron announced on stage as he began his encore that a fan from Delaware, the other side of the country, had hit 300 shows.  He then turned to me and said, 'Thanks, Judi.'  I cannot begin to tell you what a thrill that was.  Thank you, Aaron.  The pleasure has been all mine.

Check out the concert review article that appeared in The Record for Aaron's show in Stockton, CA on 22 June 2002.  Really terrific write-up.

I took quite a few photos in California.  Needless, to say, I have not gotten them all developed, but hopefully I got some good ones.  As I do, I will add them to this website.  (Two shows, Sonoma-Marin Fair and Del Mar Fair, did not allow photos, but I may have gotten a couple before I was aware of their rules.)

 C-YA on the road!

New CD Released By RCA ~ Aaron Tippin:  RCA Country Legends

11 June 2002, is the scheduled release date of Aaron Tippin:  RCA Country Legends.  Country Legend is certainly an apt title for both Aaron and his music.  The CD includes 16 original older songs which have been remastered (RCA is Aaron's former label).  The CD includes both very familiar hits that you will be sure to remember and some you may have not heard in quite a while.  The song list for Aaron Tippin:  Country Legends is as follows:
