Aparo was signed by Clive David (Arista Records) in 2000, releasing “The American” which led to Aparo supporting a U.S. tour and sharing the stage with acts such as: Matchbox 20, Faith Hill and Edwin McCain. In 2005, Aparo appeared on Faith Hill’s NBC Thanksgiving Special signing “Cry” with Hill and catching the attention of producer Dan Huff (Keith Urban, Rascal Flatts).

Aparo is currently working on a music reality TV show with Tim McGraw entitled “American B-Sides” in which Aparo is slated to host.
