Stellar album!


Ty has consistently had one of the best voices in all genres of music and with "House on Fire" he comes roaring back with that unmistakable voice and an amazing collection of songs.

House on Fire shines brilliantly

SA Collins,

Been waiting for this album for quite a while. Honesty and truth in music never sounded so good. There is a gentle ease that permeates every song, even when the words are filled with anguish or pain, the song still has an uplifting quality, a sense of pride, honesty and resilience to it that will guarantee multiple plays. I'm loving that Ty Herndon is embracing himself wholly and with such love of who he is and how he sees the world. In these potentially darker times, it's truly a gift to find a beacon of light. This is one of those albums.

About Ty Herndon

Like many new country singers of the mid-'90s, Ty Herndon fused neo-traditionalist country with a slick, rock-oriented sense of style and production. Like many of his contemporaries, his blend of genres proved commercially successful, and his first album became one of the biggest hits of 1995. Herndon was a little wilder, at least off the stage, than many of his peers, but his records had a down-to-earth sense of sentimentality that initially gave him a broad fan base.

Born in Meridian, Mississippi and raised in Butler, Alabama, Herndon became involved in music as he was growing up. He sang gospel music and learned how to play piano. After he graduated from high school, he moved to Nashville. Initially, he had a difficult time gaining a foothold in the music industry, spending ten years without making any real headway. Herndon left the Music City and headed to Texas, where he began slogging it out in local honky tonks, developing a dedicated following of fans. In 1993, he won the Texas Entertainer of the Year. Later that year, he signed to Epic Records.

Herndon's first single, "What Mattered Most," hit number one in the spring of 1995. An album of the same name was released in April and became a Top Ten country hit. His second single, "I Want My Goodbye Back," became a number seven hit. The world was seemingly in his hands, but his first year of stardom was a difficult one, as he was arrested for drug possession on June 13, 1995, in Fort Worth, Texas. Nevertheless, the arrest didn't halt his career. His third single, "Heart Half Empty," was a hit, and Herndon's second album, Living in a Moment, debuted at number six upon its summer 1996 release. Big Hopes followed two years later, and in 1999 Herndon resurfaced with Steam. This Is Ty Herndon: Greatest Hits arrived in 2002, followed by a collection of Christmas songs (Not So Silent Night) in 2004 and a new album (Right About Now) in 2006. After that record, Herndon moved to the FUNL Music indie, releasing Journey On, his first album for the label, in 2001, and followed it with Lies I Told Myself in 2013 and House on Fire in 2016. ~ Stephen Thomas Erlewine
