Aaron Tippin and Robby Hopkins Band

With three number 1 hits and 30 charted songs, Aaron Tippin has played before the largest audiences in the world. Friday night, Chattanooga will get a chance to see him in a smaller setting, as the Redoubt Soccer Complex plays host to Tippin in a benefit for the soccer league. Some tickets are still available, so act soon.

Tippin hit the charts first with RCA Records and scored a number one hit in 1992 with “There Ain’t Nothin’ Wrong With The Radio”.

He followed that number one with another three years later with “That’s As Close As I’ll Get To Loving You.” “Kiss This” was released in 2000 and went straight to the top of the charts.

Opening for Aaron Tippin is the Robby Hopkins Band from North Georgia. Robby recently opened for Craig Morgan in Chattanooga and has just won the Atlanta round of the Texaco Country Showdown. He was named “best country act” for 2011 in the Chattanoogan.com.

Why is it that some employees will be getting a raise and others are not? That doesn't really ... (click for more)
