Tippin releases new single

Monday, January 22, 2007 – Aaron Tippin recently released a family-inspired single "He Believed" on his new record label, NIPPIT Records.

The video for "He Believed," directed by Wes Edwards of award-winning production company Ruckus Film, features Tippin's son Teddy as a "young Aaron." Filmed at the Upper Cumberland Regional Airport in Sparta, Tenn. on Jan. 16-17.

Tippin wrote "He Believed" shortly after the passing of his father, Willis "Tip" Tippin in April 2005 in a car accident in North Carolina. "My dad was the oak tree of the Tippin family," Tippin sasid of his father. "He taught me to 'stand for something;' to stand for what I believe in," Tippin said.

Ruckus also produced recent videos for Jason Aldean, Craig Morgan and Nashville Star Chris Young.

CD reviews for Aaron Tippin

Now and Then CD review - Now and Then
Fifteen years after his debut, Tippin reintroduces himself with 3 new songs and 10 re-recordings of his own hits. Among the new tunes, "Ready to Rock (in a Country Kinda Way)" is a southern rocker that tips its hat to Hank Jr., while "Could Not Stop Myself" and "He Believed" mix strong vocals with upbeat, electric guitar-bass-and-drum and touches of fiddle and banjo. The productions sound fuller than Tippin's 1990s recordings, but with the same muscular power. »»»
Stars & Stripes
Aaron Tippin may be known as a country singer espousing blue collar, working man values, but something seems to be missing here in a big way at least musically. When working class comes to mind, one thinks of Tippin's sometimes tough sounding voice that gets to the heart of the material. But the problem time and again is the music and quality of the songs. There is far too great a generic sound produced by the typical Grade A session players. Too much drums from Lonnie Wilson and a lack of »»»
A December to Remember
A dozen new Christmas songs beckon from Aaron Tippin's first holiday album. Including "Jingle Bell Rock," this mustachioed covers five seasonal classics, best of all his bathed-in-blues rendering of the Ernest Tubb/Elvis Presley giant, "Blue Christmas." Yet Tippin strikes bold where so many choose to play it safe by striking forth with seven originals. Some are quite good. Others, well, are not. He adds to the ever-growing canon of silly Christmas songs with his rocking "It's A Good Thing Santa »»»
Editorial: Walking the talk – When names like Hank Williams, Johnny Cash, Waylon and the Hag are invoked, you're talking hard core country. These are the touchstones of country , the guys who made country music what it was and still is (or maybe can be). When these folks would sing about being down-and-out and the rough-and-tumble, they knew of what they were singing about. Fast forward a few years to the country singers of today. »»»
Concert Review: Lane, Ramsey, Barrett cover their bases – Covers played a far more prominent role than usual at a country show. And instead of what is typically the least course of resistance in recent years of country artists succumbing to their renditions of a rock hit, Chris Lane, Mason Ramsey and Gabby Barrett played songs that actually were country hits. Interestingly, the youngest of the bunch, Ramsey,... »»»
Concert Review: Mumford and Sons up to snuff, for the most part – Mumford and Sons have always played it smart when it has come to career moves. They have not overtoured by becoming regular fixtures on the touring circuit. Their M.O. is to tour just enough upon an album release and then disappear for a stretch. Ditto for releasing new music ("Delta" just came out last month, Mumford's first release... »»»
