Ty Herndon

GRAMMY-nominated artist Ty Herndon has sold more than four million albums throughout his career and charted 17 singles, including three No. 1s and numerous Top 10 hits.  In November 2014, he became the first major male Country artist to come out as gay.  Shortly after, he made history when he hosted the first-of-its-kind country music event, The Concert for Love and Acceptance, during the annual CMA Fest in Nashville. The event, designed to bring attention and support to at-risk youth and LGBT acceptance, received attention from national media outlets like Rolling Stone, Entertainment Tonight, People, and the Boston Globe, which named it one of the best concerts of the week. His latest album, House On Fire, was released in November 2016 and climbed to the Top 10 on the iTunes country charts within hours of its release.
