Aaron Dupree Tippin (born July 3, 1958 in Pensacola, Florida) is an American country music artist 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 and 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 decline, and he was dropped from the label's roster. more »


 The easy, fast & fun way to learn how to sing:

[Verse 1]
A million reasons why I could
But only one why I won't
Cause the one who'd probably never know
Is the reason that I don't
I can't say that I'm not tempted
I'm just like any other man
But when I walk out of here alone woman
I hope you understand

She's standin' on the promises
That she gave to me
So I'm standin' on the promises
I promised her I'd keep

[Verse 2]
It'd be so easy for anyone
To justify the wrong
Fall right into your arms
And say to hell with being strong
But there's one thing I know for sure
She'd never play this kind of game
And for her faith in out love
I'll do her the same cause

[Chorus x2]
