Tippin says that nobody was any more surprised that he got an invitation to join the roster of Nashville powerhouse RCA back in 1990 than him. In fact, at the time he inked his deal, he had almost given up hope of success as a vocalist, concentrating on his budding career as a songwriter – with cuts from the likes of The Kingsmen, Mark Collie, and Charley Pride. He also couldn’t believe that his first single, “You’ve Got to Stand for Something,” hit the Billboard Country Singles chart – eventually peaking at # 6. The hits continued to pile up - “There Ain’t Nothin’ Wrong with The Radio,” “My Blue Angel,” and “Workin’ Man’s Ph.D.,” among them. He was building his brand on songs that touched a nerve with his blue-collar audience – and that one-of-a-kind vocal style that definitely was Country. In the past decade, Tippin has recorded several musically diverse projects – including a well-received 2009 truck driving album, In Overdrive. He also partnered with restaurant chain Cracker Barrel for the release He Believed. To celebrate his 25th-anniversary making records, he plans to celebrate in a big way. The singer still delights in that hour and a half of performing on the stage. But don’t call his followers “fans” - he thinks of them as family.
