Aaron Tippin At Grand Ole Opry Country Music Show - Nashville
Aaron Tippin is a country singer/songwriter best known for his patriotic anthems and working class themes. Tippin grew up in Travelers Rest, South Carolina and worked as a commercial pilot before starting his country music career. Tippin earned a song publishing contract after appearing on the talent search show You Can Be a Star. He commuted to Nashville to write during the day after working nights at an aluminum facility in Kentucky. His songs were recorded by The Kingsmen, Mark Collie, and Charlie Pride, among others. Tippin's first Nashville nightclub performance was impressive enough to earn him a recording contract with RCA Records, and from then Tippin's star rose quickly.
