Firefly Music Blue Ridge is thrilled to present an extraordinary evening of live music with one of country musics greatest singers, Grammy-nominated and Dove award-winning Ty Herndon.

Ty sprang into the national spotlight as a finalist in the first season of the iconic television series, Star Search and was a winner in the male-vocalist category, an accolade which led to appearances on numerous television shows and commercials. He followed that up by being named Texas Entertainer of the Year, and securing 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 number-ones 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 November of 2014, Ty Herndon became the first major male country artist to publicly come out as gay. Shortly after, he made history when he hosted the first-of- its-kind country music event, titled The Concert for Love and Acceptance. The event, designed to bring attention and support to at-risk youth and acceptance, received national attention from Boston Globe, Rolling Stone, Entertainment Tonight, People Magazine and more. Herndon received an outpouring of support that only strengthened his relationship with fans. Using his celebrity influence for the better good, Herndon is in the planning stages of a new coalition called RALY, (Rescue A Life Yall) to help save lives and raise awareness for those with addiction or identity issues. A philanthropist at heart, Herndon has also donated his time to organizations such as the Trevor Project, Make A Wish, St. Jude, GLAAD, HRC and Feed the Children.
