Sad, Sad News ~ Bob Hope Passes Away At 100

If you remember, Aaron performed with Bob Hope and the USO Tour during Desert Storm in December 1990. Aaron credits the opportunity to perform in Saudi Arabia during Desert Storm with Bob Hope as a pivotal point in his career and one of his most memorable tours. Per Aaron, this tour gave Aaron a fuller appreciation for what it means to be an American and what this country, the USA, offers as emphasized in the following quote:

"I was honored earlier this year when Bob Hope invited me to Saudi Arabia to entertain the troops. Being in that part of the world made me realize what an honor it is to be an American. This country is known as a friend to justice and human rights. That's a good reason to be proud."  Aaron Tippin.

UPI:  Bob Hope, Entertainment Titan, Dies At 100

LOS ANGELES, July 28 (UPI) -- Bob Hope, who died at the age of 100 Sunday evening at his home in Toluca Lake, Calif., was one of the most successful and beloved figures in the history of entertainment.

Hope died of pneumonia at 9:28 p.m., said a publicist for the versatile performer -- one of the last surviving entertainers who achieved stardom across the board in vaudeville, radio, Broadway, movies and TV.

Hope's 100th birthday, May 29, was celebrated throughout the United States and in his native England.

Hope -- one of the most decorated performers ever -- added to his list of honors when the Hollywood Chamber of Commerce renamed the legendary intersection of Hollywood and Vine as Bob Hope Square, and the Los Angeles County Board of Supervisors named Hope Citizen of the Century.

President George W. Bush mourned Hope's death in a statement issued as he was boarding Air Force One at Andrews Air Force Base.

"Bob Hope made us laugh, and he lifted our spirits," said Bush. "Bob Hope served our nation when he went to battlefields to entertain thousands of troops from different generations."

Aaron Tippin Website Changes

Website Navigational Bar

I wanted to let you know about a change I am making to my website which, hopefully, will help you navigate through my Aaron Tippin website easier.  When I started this website four years ago, I did not realize my Aaron Tippin website would become so large.  And, since I do my own coding and am self-taught, it has been a real learning process.  Needless to say, I have loved every minute doing it....

At the suggestion of a professional web designer (Thanks, Regina), I will be adding a Navigational Bar with drop-down boxes referencing links within my website at the top of each webpage.  For now, I will be concentrating on main link pages (ei Index Page, What's New Page, Tour Schedule, Photo Links Pages, etc).  As I add new pages, I will make this Navigational Bar a regular item.  This Navigational Bar works in both the Internet Explorer (5.5) and Netscape (7.1) browsers I have loaded on my computer; however, I do not know whether the Navigational Bar will work in all browsers, including older Internet Explorer, Netscape, AOL, WebTV, etc.  Please let me know what you think, and please let me know whether you are having problems using my new Aaron Tippin Navigational Bar.

Stemwinder Photos And Image Selector

I have also added new Stemwinders Photos and will be adding more as I get photos developed.  Not only have I added new photos, but I have changed the Concert Photo viewing page for each current band member.  The Stemwinder Thumbnail Link and the Band Member Intro Pages for each band member (ei Mark Johnson) function the same.  However, when you click on the Photo Link on the Band Member Intro Page, the Concert Photo Page for each current band member (ei Mark Johnson) has a new look, hopefully for easier viewing while still providing concert information.  Please let me know what you think.  FYI:  There is a link at the bottom of the Band Member Intro Pages which still links to the original pages, both current and former band members.

I have also made similar changes for viewing:

Comment Form:  'Made In America' Hosted By Aaron Tippin

Per Aaron's Official Site:  We would like your opinions and comments on GAC's new show, "Made In America", hosted by Aaron Tippin.  Feel free to give us any suggestions.  Thanks!

To fill out the form, go to:

Comment Form

I know there are a lot of you fans who only get Country Music Television (CMT) and do not get Great American Country (GAC) with your cable company.  For a very long time, CMT was all my cable company offered.  When my cable company upgraded this last time, both GAC and CMT were made available.  My only suggestion is to nag, nag, nag your cable company to offer GAC.  Four different episodes of 'Made In America' have been telecast thus far.  Supposedly, there are 22 more.  So nag, nag, nag....  After all, your cable company does want your business.  And, good luck!

A brief synopsis on 'Made In America' and Aaron:  At the very beginning of the show, Aaron introduces the highlighted company and introduces a company spokesperson.  As the show progresses, there are clips of Aaron and the company spokesperson going from station to station explaining and showing how the highlighted product is made (Or, in the case of the Black Hills, various spots of interest.).  Lots and lots of interesting commentary.  And, tons of American pride in products made right here in the USA!  Needless to say, Aaron is quite an animated and entertaining host, a real natural.  In between the clips are country music videos from various artists, including one from Aaron.

I love the show.  Watching country music videos has always been enjoyable, but adding Aaron and a real slice of what America is all about is the best.

There is a really poignant photo of the reflection of Aaron viewing the National Vietnam Veterans Memorial.  Such an emotional moment, all those names inscribed on the memorial.  If ya get to Washington DC, make sure you stop at the National Vietnam Veterans Memorial.  It's so beautiful....  There is also a terrific photo of the fireworks display on the Washington Monument grounds.

Aaron, TNN And Buckmasters Classic

Buckmasters begins the 2003 TV season this weekend on TNN with shows at 10:30am ET on Saturday, 05 July; and 10am ET on Sunday, 06 July.

Jackie and the Buckmasters film crew continue a long-time tradition by starting the television season with the Buckmasters Classic Life Hunt. Each year in January, Buckmasters, in partnership with the Buckmasters American Deer Foundation, hosts this special hunt for kids (and some adults) with severe illnesses or disabilities.

Country music star Aaron Tippin and comedian Jeff Foxworthy participated in this year's hunt, helping to keep the camp lively and entertaining, even when the hunting was a bit off. But after a slow start, the action really picked up for this year's hunt, and the kids were able to take some excellent bucks.

Aaron And Washington DC 04 July

WOW!! What a show in Washington, DC for the 04 July!  Aaron and the guys performed with the US Navy Band on the Washington Monument grounds.  Needless to say, the show was dynamite and Aaron was right in his element.  Aaron's shows have always included not only a strong working man's element, but also a strong sense of patriotism and American pride.  The crowd was absolutely wild; the entire Washington Monument grounds were filled with fans when Aaron and the guys came on.  There is nothing like being in our nation's capitol celebrating Independence Day and watching an Aaron Tippin show.  Great day....I wish y'all could have been there!
