Country Star Ty Herndon

TULOUMNE CITY —Country music star Ty Herndon will be coming to Black Oak Casino on July 6.

Herndon has become a household name to country music fans and has charted 17 singles on the Billboard Hot Country Songs charts including #1 hits “What Mattered Most,” “Living in a Moment,” and “It Must Be Love.”

Herndon, who was raised in Alabama, grew up with a background of family singing, both at home and in church. He took the county music scene by storm with his 1995 debut of “What Mattered Most.” The #1 song was added to 133 radio stations’ playlists in its first week, setting a new record for the most additions to country playlists in one week. The album itself debuted at #15 on Top County Albums and #1 on Top Heatseekers, and had the biggest first-week shipment in the history of Epic Record’s Nashville division.

Herndon has sold more than 4 million albums throughout his career and received numerous industry awards. Most recently, Herndon received a Grammy nomination for his 2010 album Journey On and won a 2010 Dove Award for “When We Fly,” which was named Bluegrass Recorded Song of the Year.
