    “That’s As Close As I’ll Get” was Tippin’s only #1–maybe even only top-5–that was not a novelty song or patriotic anthem. Tippin was a helluva singer when he wasn’t flexing his muscles and playing at being “Honkytonk Superman.” His debut album “You’ve Got To Stand For Something” was one of the great retro-honkytonk albums of the early ’90s.

    Mercy, sakes alive, looks like we got us a “Convoy”; it also got to #1 on the Hot 100 about three weeks into 1976

      I was 7 years old when that song came out and I thought it was pretty neat — mostly due to the Rubber Duck reference. I’m not such a fan of it now, though.
