Ty Herndon hit the country music scene in 1995, debuting with “What Mattered Most,” which took him directly to the #1 spot on Billboard’s country music chart. Ty would reach the top of the chart two more times throughout the 90’s, along with five other Top20 hit songs.
Join us as we take a look at our five favorite singles released by Ty Herndon throughout the 90’s!
5. Heart Half Empty – Feat. Stephanie Bentley (1995)
The third single from Ty’s debut album also marked the debut of Stephanie Bentley. Though “Heart Half Empty” would peak at #21 in the U.S. in 1995, Bentley would later find success as a song writer, penning hits for Faith Hill, Martina McBride and Gloriana.
4. Steam (1999)
Man, this song is just a blast to sing-a-long with!Though not the most successful of Ty Herndon’s career, this is easily one of the first hits that come to mind when I hear his name.
3. Living In A Moment (1996)
Ty Herndon’s second #1 hit came in 1996 as the title track from his sophomore album. “Living In A Moment” followed “In Your Face,” a single that didn’t reach the Top40. In a period with so many outstanding superstars in country music, Ty was able to quickly recover, coming back to the meaningful love songs that have been a staple throughout his career, still to this date.
2. I Want My Goodbye Back (1995)
I’ve probably heard this song more than any Ty Herndon song, ever. It’s funny, it’s witty and like “Steam,” above, this is another awesome “sing-a-long in your truck” song! This is the perfect example of what we at BORN Country wished country radio still sounded like today.
1. What Mattered Most (1995)
In February of 1995, Ty Herndon released his debut single, “What Mattered Most,” to country radio. It’s no mystery how this song catapulted Ty to his first of three #1 country music singles, followed by “Living In A Moment” and “It Must Be Love” in 1998. Not only did “What Mattered Most” land the top spot in the U.S., but also found a home at #1 on Canada’s RPM chart!
