Exclusive Interview with Aaron Tippin

Aaron Tippin Why country music ?
~ Why not country music? I grew up with it. What I like about it is that it tells a story.

If everything would be possible (waking the dead included) , which two people should sing the ultimate country duet?
~ Hank Sr. and Elvis

What song you ever recorded means the most to you and why?
~ Its hard to pick a favorite when you have songs like Kiss This, You’ve Got to Stand for Something, Stars and Stripes and Eagle Fly , Working Man’s PhD…I just can’t pick a favorite I like them all.

Who would you like to write a song for you?
~ Well I actually wrote or co wrote all of hits except for one. I enjoy writing my own songs. I am always listening and looking for a good song title.

Whisky wine beer or water?
~ Wine. I was a beer kinda guy until I met Thea my wife that all changed. She got me hooked on wine. We have even produced some wine of our own. It’s a fun process to make wine.

What is the question interviewers never asked you while you were always hoping they would. (and give us your answer)?
~ Oh I wish you hadn’t ask me that

Describe the ultimate recording studio (not the technique but the facilities)

Give us your top 3 country songs ever.
~ David Ball Texas Echo
    Hank Williams Sr. Ramblin’ Man

~ September 14th I will be on GAC show called, “Day Jobs.” They followed me around for a day and I demonstrated what it was like to be a pilot. I was a pilot before I was a country music singer. Thats what the show is all about, the jobs country music artist had before they were country music artist.
