USA Patriotism! proudly recognizes . . . country singing star and patriot Aaron Tippin for his ongoing support of our troops through his performances and other activities.
Aaron Tippin launched his career in 1991 with his debut single, “You've Got To Stand For Something,” a single that reached Top Ten status and quickly became an anthem for a nation embroiled in the conflict of Desert Storm.
Aaron found that many viewed him as a voice of patriotism, a badge he wears proudly to this day. Following yet another tragic time in our country's history, Aaron again rose to the occasion with the song “Where The Stars And Stripes And The Eagle Fly,” immediately following the 9/11 terrorist attacks.
Aaron donated the proceeds from the commercial single, which zoomed to the No. 2 position on the Billboard chart, to the Disaster Relief Fund of the Nashville Area Chapter of the American Red Cross.
“Country fans went out and bought the record to help other Americans who needed help at the time,” Aaron says. “That's common of what real country fans are like.”
It is the fan enthusiasm and support that has motivated Aaron to take an active role not only through his music, but through performances for the troops.
To date, Aaron has performed for over 500,000 military personal either overseas or here at home. In addition, he is the spokesman for the Armed Services YMCA, an aviator, and an avid military supporter.
His family ties currently lead to a son-in-law who is also a pilot currently serving overseas for our country, and Aaron boosts his morale and his fellow troops with annual performances and visits to the base.
“Those are the real workin' men and women, and if I can repay even an ounce of what they are doing for me, my family, and my country by taking their mind off of the day-to-day risks...well, I can't think of a better thing to do with my time,” Aaron says.
Aaron continues to support the troops with an upcoming performance at a Gala in Washington, DC this May and a trip to the Persian Gulf later this year to visit the troops.
