Ty Herndon is a master of the ties that bind. The Grammy-nominated and Dove award-winning recording artist can connect with an audience far beyond his onstage performance. Herndon has a passion and commitment to his music that continues to play out in his lyrics. “If I haven’t lived it, I haven’t sung it,” as Herndon says. With a career spanning two decades, 20 Billboard charted singles, and over five million albums sold, Herndon shows no signs of slowing down. As a live performer, he gained popularity while playing honky-tonks in Texas, and in 1993 he was named Texas Entertainer of the Year. That honor led to interest from Music Row and a record deal with Epic Records. Herndon made his chart debut in 1995 with “What Mattered Most,” which became his first No. 1 song and garnered a Song of the Year award (Music Row Magazine). It was also the title track to his debut album, which debuted on the Billboard Top Country Albums chart and had the biggest first-week shipment in the history of Epic Records’ Nashville.
Between 1995 and 2002, Herndon charted 17 singles, including his three No.1s 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.” In 2010, Herndon released his album, Journey On. The collection was heralded as the most personal project of Herndon’s career, due in large part to the fact that the project represented his first foray into songwriting. The songs reflected the challenges and struggled Herndon faced conquered and delivered on the promise of hope and new beginnings. The album received critical acclaim and earned him a Grammy nomination and his first Dove award.
Now Herndon is ready to release his latest and most ambitious album to date.
House On Fire is a collection of 12 new contemporary songs, co-produced by Herndon and Erik Halbig, with Drew Davis joining as co-producer on six of the songs. Herndon also co-wrote seven of the 12 songs. Track by track, Herndon has made some of the most engaging, meaningful, and fulfilling music of his career. Featuring Herndon’s powerful trademark vocals, the new album is already receiving critical accolades from the Nashville music community. It showcases a more profound, greater strength from a man who has been there and back and has lived to tell about it. House on Fire is the next evolution of Ty Herndon.
