Tuesday, March 13, country music hitmaker Aaron Tippin joined “Get To You” singer Michael Ray in Nashville for a special collaborative performance at the 2nd Annual “90’s Night” benefit concert.
Michael Ray, one of the night’s featured talents, welcomed surprise guest Aaron Tippin to the stage where the two performed the country legend’s #1 hit song, “Kiss This,” before a SOLD-OUT crowd.
“I grew up on 70’s, 80’s, and 90’s country, and about the time I was playing solo gigs around my home state of Florida, I was booked by a local club to open for Aaron,” shares Ray. “It was one of those early shows I’ll never forget as it helped pave my way to Music City. So, to have him return the favor and surprise the crowd by joining me on stage last night was such a great moment!”
“Man, what a great night catching up with old pals from the early days and meeting some new talented singers,” adds Tippin. “I appreciate Michael Ray inviting me out to sing one of my hits with him. He’s a great guy and a huge talent. I’m ready to do it again!”
The “90’s Night” concert, benefiting the T.J. Martell Foundation, was co-hosted by Buzz Brainard, Lorianne Crook and Charlie Chase (Crook & Chase), and was held at Marathon Music Works in downtown Nashville. In addition to Ray and Tippin, the lineup featured collaborative performances by Adam Sanders w/ Tracy Lawrence, Chris Lane w/ John Michael Montgomery, Tyler Farr w/ BlackHawk, LOCASH w/ Joe Diffie and Tim Rushlow, and Cole Swindell w/ Diamond Rio.
