Aaron Tippin Kicks Into Overdrive with Trucker-Dedicated Release

Just when you think he’s hit his stride the hardest working man in country music kicks it into overdrive! In Overdrive debuted February 3 on NIPPIT – Country Crossing Records. Aaron Tippin co-produced with Tim Grogan and the executive producer is label head James Stroud. This album of country classics was created for the American trucking professional and the people who care about them.

And when it comes to picking, recording and sequencing songs for an album like this, Aaron Tippin qualifies for this honor in a big way. His unique perspective comes from his own fair share of time spent behind the wheel of the big rigs and the lifestyle that goes with it.

“I’ve had my heart set on doing this album for a long time,” Tippin recalls. “Now, with the current economic state, I’m reminded of the unsung heroes of the road, that legion of devoted Americans, some 4 million strong, who make their living in the trucking industry and hammer down, day after day. And I wanted to make this record for them.”

Tippin always loved everything about the trucking industry. “It’s part of my chemical makeup I guess,” he explains. “I love the way the trucks look, the shine, the mechanics, the ride, roar and the ruckus you feel when you pass a monster convoy or experience hundred of tough-looking rigs rolling into a trucking convention or NASCAR race. I can appreciate the tireless and ongoing mammoth effort that goes into moving America… I’m humbled to thank my friends in the trucking business by singing my favorite road songs for them as we all roll on down the road.”
