In November of 2014, 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. Herndon is in the planning stages of a new coalition called RALY (Rescue A Life Y’all) to help save lives and raise awareness for those with addition or identity issues. Recently, he also contributed his vocals on the tribute track, “Hands.” The single, released as a musical tribute to the victims of the Pulse nightclub in Orlando, Florida.
Herndon is well known for numerous top 10 hits, such as, “I Want My Goodbye Back”, “Loved Too Much”, “A Man Holding On”, “Hands of a Working Man”, and “It Must Be Love” and is scheduled to release his latest album House on Fire, November 11th. We are looking forward to showcasing Herndon’s powerful trademark voice on the County stage.
