Thomas Tippin, the youngest son of country music’s Aaron Tippin, has signed with BMI (Broadcast Music, Inc.) for exclusive songwriting representation.
“We are thrilled to welcome Thomas Tippin to the BMI family,” says BMI’s Josh Tomlinson. “He’s a talented young writer with a bright future ahead of him. Having known Aaron and Thea for years, it was a full-circle moment for our families for me to sign Thomas as a BMI writer.”
The signing of Thomas marks the third Tippin to ink with BMI. His parents, Aaron and Thea, have been writers with the company since the 80’s.
“Thea and I are so excited for Thomas’ future as a singer/songwriter and we’re happy he chose to affiliate with BMI, our home for the last 30 years,” notes Aaron. “Troy Tomlinson was my publisher back in the early days so to have his son Josh sign Thomas is a really cool thing.”
Thomas adds, “It’s an honor to be signed to BMI where my mom and dad have been for years. I’m really looking forward to working with them.”
