Episode 30 – Ty Herndon

Herndon is an open book in our 30 minute interview

Ty Herndon is a force to be reckoned with.

His now three-decade career has spanned 20 Billboard-charted singles and five million albums sold. And Herndon shows no signs of slowing down.

Between 1995 and 2002, Herndon charted 17 singles, including his three No. 1’s and numerous Top 10 hits, such as “I Want My Goodbye Back,” “Loved Too Much,” “A Man Holding On,” and “Hands of a Working Man.” He topped the charts in 1996 with the single “Living in a Moment” and again in 1998 with “It Must Be Love.”

Herndon’s biggest single, “What Mattered Most” was reissued with his preferred pronouns. Originally recorded as a man singing about his ex-girlfriend, Ty re-recorded the song to reflect having come out as gay in 2014.

In this interview with hosts Buddy Iahn and Matt Bailey, Ty lays all of his cards on the table: From the support he received after coming out, to what his life is like now. Now his mission is to make sure no artist has to hide who they are with the 2020 Concert for Love & Acceptance, which he teased during this interview that was recorded a few weeks before the announcement.

Plus, you’ll hear how Ty has been able to creatively get back to performing — even while supporting the venues at which he was originally scheduled to perform live.

Ty his as proud of himself as he is his country music roots. This interview proves it.
