Artist Bio:

Aaron Tippin is a force of nature, a man whose passion for music fuels an array of other vigorous enthusiasms.  Apart from writing and recording songs and wowing crowds with his live appearances, Tippin is also a pilot, farmer, winemaker, outdoorsman, competitive bodybuilder and devoted family man.  He even runs his own record label.  It’s no surprise then that so many in the music industry regard this tireless South Carolinian as the “Hillbilly Hercules.” 

Fresh from unveiling He Believed, his exclusive album for Cracker Barrel Old Country Stores, Tippin has now released a second collection of songs, one that salutes America’s truck drivers.  It’s called In Overdrive and features the trucker classics “East Bound And Down,” “Drivin’ My Life Away,” “Prisoner Of The Highway,” “Girl On The Billboard,” “Movin’ On,” “The White Night,” “Roll On,” “Truck Drivin’ Man,” “Long White Line,” “Drivin’ Fool” and “Danger Dave.”

In Overdrive was sparked by Tippin’s concern that country music had turned its back on its highway heroes.  “Seems like somewhere along the line trucking music got shoved off the country music plate,” he observes.  “I don’t understand exactly why.  The trucks are still out there.  And they’re busier than ever keeping America rolling.  I know the folks who work and live in the trucking world still love this music—and so do most fans of real country music.  This album launches my crusade to bring the music back.”
