Three of the voices that defined 90s country music – Sammy Kershaw, Aaron Tippin, and Collin Raye – join forces in the Roots & Boots tour. Combined, the trio has amassed more than 40 Top 10 radio smash hits and sold more than 25 million albums. Don’t miss these iconic country artists as they come together to swap stories and perform their classic songs all on one stage.
SAMMY KERSHAW In the course of breaking into the ranks of stardom in country music, Sammy Kershaw has made contributions to more than just the charts. His Platinum albums were propelled into the record books by hits such as She Don’t Know She’s Beautiful, I Can’t Reach Her Anymore, National Working Woman’s Holiday, Love of My Live, Cadillac Style, Don’t Go Near the Water, Haunted Heart...and many other milestones.
AARON TIPPIN Aaron Tippin has crusaded for the working man and woman since he ripped country music wide open with his uncompromising single You’ve Got to Stand for Something. His voice continued to ring loud and clear with such hits as I Wouldn’t Have it any Other Way, There Ain’t Nothin’ Wrong with the Radio, That’s as Close as I’ll Get to Loving You, My Blue Angel, and Kiss This. Five of his albums are certified gold and a sixth CD, Read Between the Lines, stands at the platinum level. Tippin’s honest lyrics and direct, impassioned vocals have built a large and devoted audience.
COLLIN RAYE 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 Still Feel You and I want You Bad. 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.
