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.

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 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 ...
