His stage name is short for "Tallahassee Pain", and was chosen because of the hardships he experienced while living there.
The album's second single, "Bartender", featuring Akon was released in June 2007 and reached number five on the Hot 100 and number nine on the Hot R&B/Hip-Hop Songs chart.
The third and final single from the album, "Church", was released in October 2007 but failed to chart in the United States.
From the looks of it, the “I’m Sprung” singer had to do plenty of soul searching. I was caught up in the whole “I’m a celebrity” thing.
“I saw the importance of what I had in my family and my wife—somebody that was there to love me for me and not somebody to love me because I was T-Pain.” “All that stuff came to a standstill. Everybody wanted to be with me.”“I definitely wanted to be a better husband, a better father, and just better my life so that my family can live good,” he explained.
