Country music star Aaron Tippin, who is also a pilot and longtime aviation enthusiast, will perform at this year’s Sun ‘n Fun.
Tippin will perform Saturday, April 21, at 7 p.m. The concert is included in Sun ‘n Fun’s daily admission price.
The concert is a first for Sun ‘n Fun, according to John Burton, president.
“This should provide a great reason for those folks who may not have participated in the Fly-In yet to join us for a great concert that is part of a great event,” he said.
Tippin is a strong supporter of American military forces around the world and was the first singer to entertain troops in the Middle East during the first Gulf War in the early 1990s. In 2002, he wrote “Where the Stars and Stripes and the Eagle Fly” and went to Afghanistan to perform for American troops there. Since 2003, he has made annual trips to entertain American forces in Iraq. He also is the spokesman for the Paralyzed Veterans of America.
