About ROOTS & BOOTS 90’S TOUR - Collin Raye, Sammy Kershaw & Aaron Tippin:
Collin Raye was one of the true hit makers of the 1990’, with 24 top ten records, 16 #1 hits, and having been a 10 time male vocalist of the year nominee (5 CMA and 5 ACM), this truly electrifying performer of his era remains one of the great voices of our time. Collin Raye is nothing if not passionate. His soulful delivery has set country standards in such searing ballads as “Love, Me,” “In This Life,” “Not That Different” and “If I were you”. Always an energizing showman, he has also blazed through such vivid rockers as “My Kind of Girl,” “That’s My Story,” “I Can
Sammy Kershaw - The music business is an ever-changing model, and Sammy Kershaw has seen it all. Sammy returns to the fold with his first album in four years, Better Than I Used To Be. Longtime fans will find the music is very comparable to his string of hits that started in 1991 with “Cadillac Style.” One similarity between the classics and the new album is the songs, which are all about real life. “I started when I was twelve years old in the honky-tonks and bar rooms. I grew up early. My dad died when I was eleven, and I was the oldest of four kids. I didn‟t really have a childhood.” Those experiences helped to shape his sound, and helped him relate to the lyrics he was singing about.
That recipe has included songs about love, life, and loss—not to mention regret. Those are all emotions that Sammy knows firsthand, having experienced them all since bursting upon the scene.
So…where does the Sammy Kershaw story go from here? When asked about the future, he didn’t hesitate. “Number one, you hope for a big album,” he says. “I love to play, and do live shows. If you have a big album and a couple of hit records, you get booked a lot more—which is fine with me and my boys because that’s what we love to do—to play live, that’s what we’re all about. I’ve been a whole lot of places with my music. I don’t know where else I could go. I’d love to have an award or two, or nominations,” he admits, though saying that touching lives with his music is far more important. “But, that’s not something I have to have. I just would like people to know that I haven’t gone anywhere, and I’m still making new music, and I’m still singing the truth.”
Aaron Tippin - marks his silver anniversary as a recording artist this year, and he admits that he looks at his career longevity with a little bit of amazement.
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. And, just like that, Aaron Tippin was off to the races. The hits continued to pile up - “There Ain’t Nothin’ Wrong With The Radio,” “My Blue Angel,” and “Workin’ Man’s PhD,” 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. “You either liked it or you hated it. I is what I is,” he says with a smile. “I think several times during my record career, we tried to change and follow trends and stuff. But, it never seemed to work for me. The most success I had in the business was with songs that I crafted. I’m very proud of that. I think it makes a fan able to identify with me easier because these songs are about me – my life, who I am, and how I was raised. I tell people I get recognized a whole lot faster in a truck stop than I do in my tuxedo walking into the back of the Opry. You better check my credentials when I have a tuxedo on, because it don’t look right.”
Aaron Tippin 25th Anniversary Celebration promises to be an unforgettable year of music and fun – After all, he ‘wouldn’t have it any other way,’ would he?
