The scandal proved not to affect his career for very long. Herndon's third single was also his third hit.


Continued Success

Herndon's sophomore album, Living In A Moment, debuted at #6 on the Billboard Country albums chart. The title track and first single was another smash hit, reaching #1 on the country chart. Herndon scored three more hit singles from Living In A Dream before relasing his third album, Big Hopes. "It Must Be Love" was the first single released and gave Herndon his third #1. Follow-up singles ""A Man Holdin On (To A Woman Lettin Go)" and "Hands Of A Working Man" were both Top 5 country hits.

In 1999, Herndon's fourth studio album was released. The disc showed more of a pop rock styled country sound than his previous efforts.

Two more singles followed but acheived limited success. Pop rock is a genre of music that combines elements of both pop and rock. ...


Departure from the Spotlight

In 2002, a new single titled "Heather's Wall" was released, peaking at #37. Although it was his highest charting single since "No Mercy" in 2000, its failure to become a hit forced Herndon and his record executives to shelf his newly recorded album. Instead, Herndon put out a Greatest Hits compilation titled This Is Ty Herndon: Greatest Hits. "A Few Short Years" was the only new single released and acheived dissapointing results.

Ty Herndon Sings for You (700 words)
You may recall that country singer Ty Herndon (who, by the way, is pretty good) was indicted in Tarrant County in 1995 for allegedly possessing methamphetamines in a Fort Worth park.
What made the story particularly noteworthy was not that Herndon was accused of possessing a controlled substance, but rather the circumstances surrounding his arrest that led up to the discovery of the substance in his wallet.
You see, Herndon was arrested after an officer believed that he saw Herndon expose himself to the officer in a manner that would violate state law.
Herndon finds peace after latest rehab stint - ShaniaLounge.com (1171 words)
Herndon never has addressed the sex sting part, other than to say police mishandled it and to reiterate the indecent exposure part was dropped.
Herndon said that's when he entered rehab, in Arizona, ''not for the right reasons.'' He said his record label heavily pressured him, and ''I had not bottomed out.'' He said he learned some things about himself and got clean, but rehab wasn't totally effective.
And Herndon, who is living with his mother in Nashville, hopes tonight's show puts him in front of label chiefs and decision makers, as he is ready for a secondchance.
