Initially a songwriter for Acuff-Rose Music, Aaron Tippin gained a recording contract with RCA Nashville in 1990. His debut single, “You’ve Got to Stand for Something” became a popular anthem for American soldiers fighting in the Gulf War and helped to establish him as a neo-traditionalist country act with songs that catered primarily to the American working class. One platinum album, six gold albums and thirty years later, Aaron Tippin still enjoys performing for those who come out to see him, but don’t call them “fans”. He thinks of his audience as family. “They have been so great to me over the years, and they’re still coming out to the shows. That’s why I still sign autographs every night. I just want to get out there, shake their hand and give them a big hug–just to say thank you.” Aaron Tippin wouldn’t have it any other way.

Marty Haggard was born and raised in Bakersfield, California. Of course, everyone knows his Dad, Merle Haggard. Marty considers his dad the greatest singer/songwriter ever, and a lot of people agree with that. Growing up, Marty was able to travel with his dad and witness the writing and recording of all his great songs. He also had the opportunity to know many of the country greats, like Bob Wills, Lefty Frizzell and Johnny Cash, just to name a few. Marty’s love for his dad and his music eventually inspired him to record a tribute to Merle Haggard “My Dad”. In 2010, he recorded his first tribute album containing 15 covers of his dad’s classics. This led to a tribute show in Branson, Missouri, where he performed for two years. In 2011, Marty released a tribute to Merle Haggard “My Dad”, Volume Two. He then took the show on the road throughout the country, as well as Canada, Ireland, Scotland and England. As Marty’s song “Apple” proclaims, “the apple never falls too far from its tree”.
