The hardest working
man in country music is back and ready for action. Aaron's new album,
titled "in Overdrive", pays tribute to
the truck-driving era by placing truckin' classics onto
his latest album.
Aaron loves to fly!
According to Aaron's daddy, Aaron got his first plane
ride when he was about 3 or 4 years old. In fact, his
daddy used to take him with him whenever he could.
Apparently Aaron was the only one of his children who
showed an interest in flying and planes.
Learning to fly in a DC3, Aaron has flown countless
aircraft, including Cessnas, Pipers, Air Coupes, since
that first flight. According to Aaron, he soloed at
sixteen, and earned his multi-engine instrument license
by the time he was nineteen. Aaron was soon earning a
living as a corporate pilot for several companies, such
as Stevens Aviation, around Greenville, South Carolina;
by that time he had logged over 2500 hours of airtime.
Enroute to earning his commercial airline transport
rating and planning on a career in aviation as a
commercial pilot, the energy crunch hit in the early
eighties ~ allowing Aaron to pursue his first love,
country music. The rest is history. Needless to say,
country music and, ultimately, his fans, benefited from
that turn of events.
