Kip Moore is striking a chord today, premiering his powerful music video for his new single “Last Shot,” exclusively with Entertainment Tonight, available to watch here. Directed by Moore’s longtime collaborator and friend PJ Brown, the narrative is an inspiring interpretation of the sentiment behind the track as it follows the poignant journey of a young girl as she faces the reality of her life being cut short, but with an uplifting outlook of making everyday count. “Last Shot” is the second single taken from Moore’s revered third studio album SLOWHEART and follows his fourth No. One hit “More Girls Like You.”
“When we first talked about the video for this song, I felt like I wanted to tap into the deeper meaning behind it,” said Moore. “How that feeling of desperation and realization that every second matters, can sometimes be the motivation you need to really take action. I’ve always been a big believer of living in the moment and I hope people are inspired in some way by this video to do the same.”
Multi-PLATINUM singer/songwriter Kip Moore’s third studio album “SLOWHEART,” is continuing to garner praise by critics across the country as he “blends the passion and connection for which he’s known with a new self-awareness that will speak to both commercial and underground audiences” (USA Today) as well as wrapping 2017 on multiple “Best Of” lists including Entertainment Weekly, Rolling Stone, UpRoxx, Bobby Bones Show, Taste Of Country, Sounds Like Nashville, The Boot, PopMatters and Whiskey Riff. SLOWHEART follows the acclaim that surrounded Moore’s sophomore album WILD ONES heralded as “an impressively singular release from Music Row” by The Guardian and his PLATINUM debut album UP ALL NIGHT that spawned three No. One hit singles including GOLD certified “Beer Money,” PLATINUM certified “Hey Pretty Girl,” and the DOUBLE PLATINUM breakout hit “Somethin’ ‘Bout A Truck.

After revealing details behind his ninth studio album THE MOUNTAIN (Capitol Records Nashville) and releasing the lead single “Woman, Amen” last week, award-winning entertainer Dierks Bentley announced today that his 2018 MOUNTAIN HIGH TOUR, sponsored by Twisted Tea, will kick off on May 17th in Columbia, Maryland with special guests Brothers Osborne and LANCO. Bentley is “notorious for his spectacular, high-energy live performances loaded with lots of fan interaction,” (Creative Loafing) and more than 40 cities will experience it in 2018.
“I needed the time off to devote all my attention to the new music and making THE MOUNTAIN album…but now I can’t wait to fire up the buses and get back out there,” said Dierks Bentley. “I’ve been friends with TJ and John for a long time and I have loved watching their career explode. I’m just getting to know the boys in LANCO, but I love their music and the energy they bring to the stage. And after seeing them and the Bros party down at the grand opening of my new bar on Lower Broadway last week, I can tell you it’s gonna be game on this summer!”
With a love of unpredictable moments on and off stage, Bentley’s 2018 MOUNTAIN HIGH TOUR is already setting itself up as hard to beat.

Eric Church has taken “Round Here Buzz” to the top of the country charts. The song is from his album, Mr. Misunderstood, which he released as a surprise to his fans on the morning of the CMA Awards in 2015.
The North Carolina native co-wrote “Round Here Buzz” with Luke Dick and Jeff Hyde. He says the song contains a nostalgic, heartbreaking feel.
“I’ve done a few of these songs in my career; this nostalgic kind of song about the guy that kind of wishes things were different than they are,” says Eric. “I know a lot of people like that and like this from where I’m from. I’m from a small town, and I’ve just seen this. I think part of the reason, I feel like we’re pretty good at this kind of song, and I think part of it is because I’ve seen it, I’ve felt it. It’s a motive to me. So, I think with this song, there’s just something about it that’s always spoke to me.
You can catch Eric on this year’s GRAMMY Awards when he performs as part of a special tribute to honor the victims lost to gun violence and terrorism at various live music events last year, especially to those affected by the Route 91 Harvest Festival in Las Vegas. He will be joined by Brothers Osborne and Maren Morris.
The 60 annual GRAMMY Awards will air live from Madison Square Garden in New York City on Sunday (January 28th) beginning at 7:30p ET on CBS.
Eric Church (Round Here Buzz) OC: …emotive qualities. :48
“‘Round Here Buzz,’ I mean, I’ve done a few of these songs in my career; this nostalgic kind of song about the guy that kind of wishes things were different than they are. I know a lot of people like that and like this from where I’m from. I’m from a small town, and I’ve just seen this. I think part of the reason, I feel like we’re pretty good at this kind of song, and I think part of it is because I’ve seen it, I’ve felt it. It’s a motive to me. So, I think with this song, there’s just something about it that’s always spoke to me. It was one I was a pretty big champion for on the album and one that I think will be a hit for us, and the right kind of hit, not just one that’s a hit. One that has emotive qualities.”
