Aaron Tippin

Aaron Tippin (born Aaron Dupree Tippin, July 3, 1958 in Pensacola, Florida ) is an American country music singer-songwriter and record producer. Initially a songwriter for Acuff-Rose Music, he gained a recording contract with RCA Records in 1990. His debut single, "You've Got to Stand for Something" became a popular anthem for American soldiers fighting in the Gulf War; in addition, the song helped to establish him as a neotraditionalist country act with songs that catered primarily to the American working class. Under RCA's tenure, he recorded five studio albums and a Greatest Hits package. By the later half of the 1990s, however, his sales and chart performance began to wane, and he was dropped from the label's roster.
