By our accounts this corpulent dude Ty Stone is a rather jolly fellow. We wish him the best. In fact, the downriver-bred Stone did extensive touring playing the big rooms with confederate flag-waver Kid Rock, showcasing certain aptitude for the rock ‘n’ roll-hillbilly ditty. The guy can craft and sing ’em, to be sure.
Fact: We know Ty ain’t flippin’ burgers anymore. See, before he croaked, Atlantic co-founder Ahmet Ertegun (um, responsible for Ray Charles) was keen on the young Ty. To bad old Ahmet wasn’t around to see his Atlantic finalize the Ty Stone record deal. Look for the Gordon Williams (Joss Stone, Amy Winehouse, Aretha Franklin)-helmed album early next year. Congrats, Ty.
