About the Headliner

With a wide smile and engaging Southern drawl, Aaron Tippin proclaims he’s the “luckiest hillbilly that has ever lived,” and there’s no arguing it. After all he’s been struck by lightning twice and lived to tell, piloted planes with engine failure and even somewhat more miraculously, he’s survived more than three decades in the music business and is still going strong.
Along the way, he’s earned six gold albums and one platinum. He’s released more than 30 singles, including such hits as “You’ve Got to Stand for Something,” “My Blue Angel,” “I Wouldn’t Have it Any Other Way,” “Kiss This,” “Workin’ Man’s Ph. D,” “There Ain’t Nothing Wrong with the Radio” and “Where the Stars and Stripes and the Eagle Fly,” which was not only a country hit, but top 20 on Billboard’s all genre Hot 100 chart.Of course, luck often plays a role in achieving success in the entertainment industry, but the real driving forces behind Tippin’s achievements are a dedicated work ethic and undeniable talent.

Tippin could easily retire and relax on his farm, but that ain’t his style. With the resurgence in the popularity of ‘90s country music, Tippin has never been in more demand. So, what keeps him out there performing after all his years in the business? “It’s the people I’ve met around the country that I’ve made friends,” he says. “I look so forward to going back out there and seeing them again and hanging out. I adore that. It’s fun for me and as long as it is fun, I’ll keep doing it. That’s what keeps me going is the fact that they still come after 33 years now. I’m so happy they keep coming.”

About the After Party Artist

Singer/Songwriter Keith Anderson’s latest song “I’ll Bring The Music” sums up Anderson to a T. That is
one thing that you can always say about this academic athlete from Miami, OK, who has always excelled at anything he has put his mind to, is he WILL bring the Music.
Anderson has co-written hits for other artists, most notably "Lost In This Moment", the No. 1 smash
for Big & Rich which garnered him a CMA and ACM Song of the Year nomination. Anderson also co-wrote the Grammy-nominated, "Beer Run (B Double E Double Are You In?)" for Garth Brooks and George Jones, "The Bed" for Gretchen Wilson and "Barn Burner" for Jason Michael Carroll.
His debut CD, "Three Chord Country and American Rock & Roll", was certified Gold and garnered two Top 10 hits (accompanied by two No. 1 music videos), "Pickin’ Wildflowers," and "Every Time I Hear Your Name," along with two Top 30 hits "XXL" and "Podunk". This success prompted music trades Billboard
and Radio & Records to name him country music’s No. 1 New Male Artist of 2005 and the top new solo
country artist of the year
