    Kip Moore (inspiration behind the music) OC: …this record. :38
    “Most of the songs that came about from this record were during a round of touring around 2018 when I found myself really broken down in a lot of ways – physically, spiritually, emotionally. There was a constant search for simplicity. I found myself departed from my faith; I was searching. You sense that with so much of this record, you sense that search for peace. It’s an elusive thing, but I’m trying to grab a hold of it all throughout this record.”

    Kip Moore (rhythmic movement in album) OC: …in the past. :33
    “I feel there was a constant stretch for rhythmic percussion. I’ve always had rhythmic movement on my records, but we tried to really make sure every single instrument was really creating rhythmic percussive patterns, their own individual hook lines throughout the song – we didn’t want the drums just to carry that torch alone. I think you really feel that with this record, more so than any other record I’ve done in the past.”

To mark the release Moore shifted gears in the midst of the current landscape and invited an intimate group of industry and fans to a unique Drive-In album release event at the Stardust Drive-In in Watertown, TN last night. Attendees enjoyed a screening of Moore’s just-released documentary 7 DAYS AT THE ROCK available to watch here, followed by a compelling conversation with Moore and host Storme Warren, who were also joined by director and longtime collaborator PJ Brown.

    Continuing the celebrations tonight, Moore will perform songs taken from the record as part of a special livestream event from Analog in Nashville, TN where Moore will also be joined by some of his band for a power acoustic performance. The first time Moore will play some of the songs from WILD WORLD live, fans can tune in tonight (5/29) at 8pm CT to Moore’s Facebook and Youtube pages to watch the livestream benefiting MusiCares COVID-19 Relief Fund. Spotify will match donations to MusiCares via their COVID-19 Music Relief project

    This week, Moore will delve deeper into WILD WORLD with a stacked schedule of interviews and virtual live performances including Paste’s “The Happiest Hour” on Monday 6/1 at 4pm CT on Youtube, Amazon Music’s “Live Q+A” on Tuesday 6/2 at 11am CT on Facebook, an interview with GRAMMY Museum’s “Programs at Home” and a Facebook Live performance for American Songwriter “Behind The Mic” on Wednesday 6/3 at 7pm CT, as well as a Billboard Session on Facebook Live on 6/4 at 12pm CT.

    Critics have already been quick to praise and highlight many songs on Moore’s WILD WORLD, with Rolling Stone applauding “Red White Blue Jean American Dream” declaring “in a throaty rasp…[the song] takes on a lean, Gaslight Anthem punk-Americana sound,” as Billboard shared “another highlight on the project is “Southpaw,” a guitar heavy arena rocker celebrating the underdog,” and Esquire spotlighted “Payin’ Hard” as “the heftiest emotional wallop of his career.” Moore co-wrote all but one of the tracks on WILD WORLD even self-producing the set, with help from David Garcia, Luke Dick and Blair Daly on respective tracks.

    “I truly hope the fans are able to enjoy this body of work,” shared Moore. “A lot of people put countless hours and heart into this project. Cheers to all the fans that have been with us every step of the way.”

    Kip Moore has toured the world headlining his own shows, earning acclaim and a rabid fanbase as an all-in performer in each setting and most recently wrapping 40 sold-out headlining shows in The U.S, The U.K. and Canada. Praised by Noisey as “an uncompromising, genre-defying artist firing on all cylinders” Moore has blazed his own trail. The current CMA “International Artist Achievement Award” nominee first splashed into the mainstream with the double-PLATINUM “Somethin’ ‘Bout a Truck” in 2012, then followed up with three more best selling No. Ones (“Hey Pretty Girl,” “Beer Money” and “More Girls Like You”), a trio of ambitious, critically-praised albums and two gritty EPs that landed Moore on multiple “Best Of” lists.

    Kip Moore (inspiration behind the music) OC: …this record. :40
    “Most of the songs that came about from this record were during a round of touring around 2018 when I found myself really broken down in a lot of ways – physically, spiritually, emotionally. There was a constant search for simplicity. I found myself departed from my faith; I was searching. You sense that with so much of this record, you sense that search for peace. It’s an elusive thing, but I’m trying to grab a hold of it all throughout this record.”

  • KIP MOORE PREVIEWS WILD WORLD WITH WORLD PREMIERE OF “FIRE AND FLAME.”

    Kip Moore marked the eve of his record release with the world premiere of “arena rock” (Esquire) driven track “Fire And Flame” exclusively with BBC Radio 2. Co-written by Moore with Cary Barlowe, Brett James and Will Weatherly, the track is a blowtorch anthem that pours gasoline on the quest for greater meaning and fans heard the track first on “The Country Show with Bob Harris on BBC Radio 2” (The UK’s most listened to radio station) at 5pm CST/ 11pm BST Thursday (5/28) here: https://www.bbc.co.uk/programmes/m000jhb5.

    Moore’s timely and vulnerable new documentary “7 DAYS AT THE ROCK” will also premiered last night (5/28) on Outside TV. The short film follows Moore through some of his experiences in isolation at his remote rock climbing facility, BedRock, located in Red River Gorge, Kentucky, as well as the weeks leading up to the release of his fourth studio album WILD WORLD, available tomorrow  May 29. “7 DAYS AT THE ROCK” will be available on all major streaming platforms and devices including The Roku Channel and Samsung TV Plus.

    Co-writing all but one of WILD WORLD’S insightful tracks, Kip Moore navigates the search to find a place and purpose. Throughout the 13-song collection that search is revealed in deeply personal terms, with Moore even self-producing the set, with help from David Garcia, Luke Dick and Blair Daly on respective tracks. The weathered heartland-rock sound Moore has embraced on previous efforts gets its emotional volume pumped up, recorded live with a full band, as substance trumped style and the timeless prevailed over the trendy.

    Kip Moore (Fire and Flame) OC: …intact. 1:44
    “I grew up in the Bible Belt in southern Georgia, and I grew up going to the Baptist church. Once I got done with high school, I always kinda wanted to go on my own spiritual journey and try to figure out what God looked like to me, where I fit in in this whole thing, and what is this whole thing that’s happening all around us all the time, trying to process the feelings that I feel and some of the maybe resentment I had with the things that maybe I was taught that I wasn’t quite in compliance with and in agreement with. And once I turned 18, I kind of always have been on that journey. I’ve read a lot myself. I read a lot of scripture, I’ve studied different religions, I always want to understand where people are coming from. I’ve always had my own faith, and I still have that about me, and I slip and I slide a lot. The faith is always inside me but no matter how much I know that I need it, no matter how much I know I need to read and stay centered, I still neglect that part of my life a lot. Whenever I start doing that is when I feel disconnected and lost. Knowing that, I still do that. Fire and the Flame is just a song speaking of my journey and the things that I feel inside about everything that I just said. I just know I’m not the only one that feels this way and has those questions and has those questions about myself. But regardless of the questions that I do have, my faith always remains intact.”

    Kip Moore is ready to release his highly-anticipated fourth studio album WILD WORLD on Friday (May 29th). Co-writing all but one of the tracks, Kip reveals an honest and insightful look at his own vulnerabilities and how he found joy navigating the search to find a place and purpose. Throughout the 13-song collection that search is revealed in deeply personal terms with Moore even self-producing the set, with help from David Garcia, Luke Dick and Blair Daly on respective tracks.

    “Fans can expect honesty with this new record, WILD WORLD, says Kip. “And I think they’re gonna find themselves wanting to dig up some of their owns bones that they’ve buried, some of those regrets from their past that have been weighing them down, and I think it’s gonna make them feel safe in their own vulnerabilities to face those regrets and try to find peace in ‘em.”

    Kip is also hoping fans experience joy when listening to his new album. “I hope that they find joy in this record the way I found joy searching for simplicities in life,” he says. “I hope that it means something to them the same way it did for me. I think there’s a search for faith throughout this record and how that looks to all of us. It might take on different shapes and forms for each of us, but it definitely probes the questions and makes you search.”

  • KIP MOORE WILL PREMIERE INSIGHTFUL “7 DAYS AT THE ROCK” DOCUMENTARY ON OUTSIDE TV ON MAY 28th.

    As the release of his fourth studio album WILD WORLD nears, multi-PLATINUM singer/songwriter Kip Moore continues to share more insight into the upcoming record, today announcing that his timely and thoughtful documentary “7 DAYS AT THE ROCK” will premiere on OUTSIDE TV on May 28. The short film offers an unfiltered look into the weeks leading up to the release of WILD WORLD (out May 29), as Moore spent time in self-isolation at his remote rock climbing facility, BedRock, located in Red River Gorge, Kentucky. Moore reflects on the current times, shifting gears in light of the pandemic while recording his IN THE WILD SESSIONS acoustic series and shares some personal reflection. “7 DAYS AT THE ROCK” will be available to watch on Outside TV on May 28 at 8pm CT available on all major streaming platforms and devices including The Roku Channel and Samsung TV Plus. Moore joins the company of other musicians spotlighted by Outside TV including Foo Fighters, Jack Johnson and Michael Franti.

    Sharing the news of the forthcoming documentary exclusively with Rolling Stone, Moore also premiered a new track “Red White Blue Jean American Dream” today, available to listen here. The only outside cut on the album, written by Jimi Bell, Barton Davies, Luke Dick, Philip Lammonds, it’s a jangle-rock stand out full of pure-American references and razor-sharp hooks, once again pointing to WILD WORLD’S central theme – that life could be less complicated than we make it.

     

    “‘7 DAYS AT THE ROCK’ came around really organically leading up to the release of this record,” shared Moore. “This is a unique moment in time for all of us that none of us will ever forget and so it felt right to kind of reflect on everything that is going on, as well as shed some light into the process of releasing WILD WORLD. I also really wanted ‘Red White Blue Jean American Dream’ to be the next look into the album.”

    The current CMA “International Artist Achievement Award” nominee is making his way up the country charts with “She’s Mine.”

  • KIP MOORE AMPS UP ANTICIPATION FOR FORTHCOMING STUDIO ALBUM PREMIERING “CRAZY FOR YOU TONIGHT.”

    Kip Moore is sharing more music from his forthcoming studio album WILD WORLD, exclusively premiering the groove-driven track “Crazy For You Tonight” with Esquire today, available to listen here. Co-written by Moore with Blair Daly and Westin Davis, he also shared an emotive acoustic take on the track as part of his “In The Wild Sessions.” Filmed in the Mojave Desert in California, the session sees Moore duetting with independent artist India Carney as the pair offer another perspective on “Crazy For You Tonight.”

    Moore also announced his WILD WORLD GLOBAL LIVESTREAM TOUR PRESENTED BY FULL THROTTLE ENERGY today, set to take place on Monday, May 5. The current CMA “International Artist Achievement Award” nominee will perform specially geo-targeted livestream shows for multiple territories including the US, The U.K., Europe, Africa, Australia, Asia and Canada on Youtube Live. Moore has built a fiercely loyal following internationally, selling out venues in The U.K., Australia, Canada and The U.S. For time zones and more information visit, kipmoore.net.

    “The feedback from the songs we have released from WILD WORLD so far has been really amazing,” shared Moore. “I’m looking forward to hearing what the fans think of ‘Crazy For You Tonight’ so they can get a feel for this upcoming record with each song we release ahead of it. I think the video we shot in the desert gives a whole other layer to the song too, and the shoot that day was just a purely joyful experience. I’m also looking forward to connecting with more fans on Monday with the global livestream we’re doing. I think right now we are all searching for ways to keep in touch and hopefully this will offer a way to do that.”

    Available on May 29th, Moore co-wrote all but one of WILD WORLD‘s insightful tracks. Throughout the 13-song collection Moore navigates the search to find a place and purpose. That search is revealed in deeply personal terms, with Moore even self-producing the set, with help from David Garcia, Luke Dick and Blair Daly on respective tracks. The weathered heartland-rock sound Moore has embraced on previous efforts gets its emotional volume pumped up, recorded live with a full band, as substance trumped style and the timeless prevailed over the trendy.

    Kip is currently sitting inside the Top 30 with his latest single, “She’s Mine.”

  • KIP MOORE EMBODIES HIS INNER “SOUTHPAW” IN NEW TRACK TAKEN FROM UPCOMING ALBUM WILD WORLD.

    Kip Moore released “Southpaw,” the next standout track off his upcoming fourth studio album, WILD WORLD, exclusively with American Songwriter today and available to listen here. Co-written (with Westin Davis) and produced by Moore, the track hailed by Billboard as a “guitar-heavy arena-rocker celebrating the underdog,” provides fans with another glimpse into Moore’s highly-anticipated forthcoming release, out May 29 and available to preorder here.  The sturdy “Southpaw” stands as a grunge-rocking manifesto for the proudly out of touch, rejecting the notion of “going with the flow” and showcasing just how Moore stands apart in today’s Wild World.

    Moore also shared the stripped-down, emphatic acoustic version of “Southpaw,” as the next installment of his “IN THE WILD SESSIONS” video series, available to watch here. Directed by PJ Brown, the stunning video was shot in the heart of Red River Gorge in Kentucky. Last week, Moore debuted the first installment of the “IN THE WILD SESSIONS,” which featured the singer/songwriter performing the album’s title track in the Mojave Desert in California. More videos set in both locations will be unveiled in the following weeks.

     

    “’Southpaw’ started from a feeling of being on the outside looking in on modern society,” explains Moore. “I don’t want my edges to be smoothed to fit into a box. I woke up the day we wrote it feeling like I was born in the wrong era. I grew up a boxing fan and a Southpaw was always a rare sighting, unpredictable and hard to prepare for. I wrote the song with Westin Davis in South Dakota and we’ve always understood each other like brothers and being kind of cut from the same cloth. I knew he would get my headspace that day and he always brings the magic. And on the recording side of things, I don’t think I’ve ever felt so much juice in a session.”’

    Co-writing all but one of WILD WORLD’S insightful tracks, Kip Moore navigates the search to find a place and purpose. Throughout the 13-song collection that search is revealed in deeply personal terms, with Moore even self-producing the set, with help from David Garcia, Luke Dick and Blair Daly on respective tracks. The weathered heartland-rock sound Moore has embraced on previous efforts gets its emotional volume pumped up, recorded live with a full band, as substance trumped style and the timeless prevailed over the trendy.
    Kip Moore has toured the world headlining his own shows, earning acclaim and a rabid fanbase as an all-in performer in each setting and most recently wrapping 40 sold-out headlining shows in The U.S, The U.K. and Canada. Praised by Noisey as “an uncompromising, genre-defying artist firing on all cylinders” Moore has blazed his own trail. The current CMA “International Artist Achievement Award” nominee first splashed into the mainstream with the double-PLATINUM “Somethin’ ‘Bout a Truck” in 2012, then followed up with three more best selling No. Ones (“Hey Pretty Girl,” “Beer Money” and “More Girls Like You”), a trio of ambitious, critically-praised albums and two gritty EPs that landed Moore on multiple “Best Of” lists. Moore is currently gearing up to hit the road this summer as a special guest on Sam Hunt’s THE SOUTHSIDE SUMMER TOUR. For more information visit kipmoore.net.

  • KIP MOORE LAUNCHES “IN THE WILD SESSIONS” AS HE SETS THE SCENE FOR UPCOMING FOURTH STUDIO ALBUM “WILD WORLD” OUT MAY 29th.

    Multi-PLATINUM singer/ songwriter Kip Moore is offering fans a form of virtual escape, today announcing his “IN THE WILD SESSIONS,” an acoustic video series that will give fans insight into Moore’s upcoming forth studio album WILD WORLD, available May 29. The first video available in the series of videos and available to watch here, is a spine-tingling version of the forthcoming releases’ title track that sees Moore performing in the atmospheric Californian desert as he collaborates with independent artists, vocalist India Carney and guitarist Melissa Dougherty.

     

    Directed and filmed by longtime collaborator PJ Brown, Moore initially began shooting the “IN THE WILD SESSIONS” in the Mojave Desert in Southern California with independent musicians that Moore cherry-picked to perform with and shine a spotlight on. Moore has continued to shoot the stripped-back sessions solo while in isolation at his rock-climbing facility Bedrock, located in the heart of Red River Gorge in Kentucky, with more videos set in both locations to be released in the coming weeks.

    “The ‘In The Wild Sessions’ began as a way to tell the story of these songs in a bare bones kind of way,” shared Moore. “I love to travel, and so PJ and I scouted a spot in the desert in California and hand-picked some independent artists to do the sessions with, as a way of also highlighting their amazing talents too. We shot five videos in the desert and then when our plans changed a little with everything going on, we shifted gears while I’m here in Kentucky in isolation. The scenery here in Red River Gorge is also one of my favorite places to be and so I’m looking forward to also sharing this pocket of the world in some of the videos to come.”

    Co-writing all but one of WILD WORLD’S insightful tracks, Kip Moore navigates the search to find a place and purpose. Throughout the 13-song collection that search is revealed in deeply personal terms, with Moore even self-producing the set, with help from David Garcia, Luke Dick and Blair Daly on respective tracks.

  • KIP MOORE’S FOURTH STUDIO ALBUM “WILD WORLD” WILL BE AVAILABLE MAY 29th.

    Kip Moore announced that his highly-anticipated fourth studio album WILD WORLD will be available May 29thand is available for physical pre-order now. Kip also gave his notably fierce fan following a taste of what to expect, releasing the upcoming collection’s title track that “anchors the album,” available to listen here.

    Co-writing all but one of WILD WORLD’S insightful tracks, Moore navigates the search to find a place and purpose. Throughout the 13-song collection that search is revealed in deeply personal terms, with Moore even self-producing the set, with help from David Garcia, Luke Dick and Blair Daly on respective tracks. The weathered heartland-rock sound Moore has embraced on previous efforts gets its emotional volume pumped up, recorded live with a full band, as substance trumped style and the timeless prevailed over the trendy. Moore admits the result includes a few quirks – but that just gives WILD WORLD the character he values so much. “We wanted it to be more in-your-face,” he says. “More earthy, more analog.”

    That straightforward honesty arrives early on the record, starting with the very first song, “Janie Blu,” about a girl who’s always been special, but often stood in her own way – a compassionate, force-of-nature plea to get your head right, before it’s too late. Likewise, the sturdy “Southpaw” stands as a grunge-rocking manifesto for the proudly out of touch, rejecting the notion of “going with the flow” and showcasing just how Moore stands apart in today’s Wild World. Meanwhile, the calming “More Than Enough” presents a better option, blowtorch anthems like the “Fire And Flame” pour gasoline on the quest for greater meaning and “Red White Blue Jean American Dream” flies down an empty highway of optimism.

    “I know it’s an unsettling time for a lot of people right now, and so my hope is that this music can bring even just one person some peace,” shared Moore. “I try to make music that reaches people in a pure sense – something that’s light and easy to carry with you, but 1000 pounds of weight at the same time, and I think Wild World is just a depiction of what I see. Life is one crazy, wild ride. But it can be so simple if we look for the right things, and I think that is more important than ever right now.”

    Wild World Track List:
    1. “Janie Blu” (Dan Couch, Kip Moore)
    2. “Southpaw” (Westin Davis, Kip Moore)
    3. “Fire and Flame” (Cary Barlowe, Brett James, Kip Moore, Will Weatherly)

  • KIP MOORE OPENS TAB TO PROVIDE MEALS TO PEOPLE WHO NEED THEM AND SHARES WAYS HE’S STAYING HEALTHY.

    Kip Moore is doing his part during these trying times, including opening a tab at a local Nashville restaurant, the Wild Cow, to provide free meals for those who are struggling during this time. Kip also teamed up with Eat Well through his foundation Kip’s Kids Fund to provide more than 3,000 meals to kids in North and West Nashville who aren’t receiving the food and nourishment they need during school closures (see video from Eat Well below).

    In the meantime, Kip is following the CDC guidelines and self-quarantining himself at his getaway place in Kentucky and spending time eating right, rock climbing, learning Spanish and more.

    “I’m doing a lot of the same things I’ve always done to stay healthy. I’m trying to eat right, take care of my body,” says Kip. “But I have followed the guidelines of quarantining myself. I’m trying to do everything asked of me. I’m currently in the mountains and I’m rock climbing. I’m completely solo. I’m off the grid. I’ve stocked up on a lot of frozen meats. I’ve got a little lodge up here in Kentucky, so I’m hanging out here, so that’s where I’m spending my time. I’ve always wanted to learn Spanish. I’ve always been able to dabble in it, but I want to get better at it. So, the first thing I did was I downloaded the dual lingo app, and it’s very elementary. Every single morning, I try to spend 45 minutes to an hour with that app, and the other thing that I’ve been trying to do is I have been outside trying to work on my skateboard game.”

    Kip is also making his way up the country charts with his latest song, “She’s Mine.”

I’m trying to do everything asked of me. I’m currently in the mountains and I’m rock climbing. I’m completely solo. I’m off the grid. I’ve stocked up on a lot of frozen meats. I’ve got a little lodge up here in Kentucky, so I’m hanging out here, so that’s where I’m spending my time. I’ve always wanted to learn Spanish. I’ve always been able to dabble in it, but I want to get better at it. So, the first thing I did was I downloaded the dual lingo app, and it’s very elementary. Every single morning, I try to spend 45 minutes to an hour with that app, and the other thing that I’ve been trying to do is I have been outside trying to work on my skateboard game.”

  • CHRISTMAS 2019: Kip Moore

    Kip Moore and his brothers would go on fishing trips with their dad around Christmas before the elder Moore passed away a few years ago, and it was always one of his favorite traditions. Another one of his favorite traditions was watching movies with his family on Christmas Eve.

    “The night before Christmas, we would rent a bunch of movies,” says Kip. “My dad would take us to the store, the video store and we would rent a bunch of movies and we’d watch them all through the night. That was always a thing that we’d look forward to was all hanging out together and laugh until 3 or 4 or 5 in the morning, then waking up two hours later for the presents.”

    The Georgia native will take some time off after the holidays, but he is working his way up the country charts with his latest single, “She’s Mine.”

    Audio / Kip Moore talks about one of his favorite Christmas traditions as a child.

    Kip Moore (Christmas) OC: …fishing trips. [laughs] 1:00
    “Growing up, the night before Christmas, we would rent a bunch of movies. My dad would take us to the store, the video store and we would rent a bunch of movies and we’d watch them all through the night. That was always a thing that we’d look forward to was all hanging out together and laugh until 3 or 4 or 5 in the morning, then waking up two hours later for the presents. I hope that I can carry that out when I have a family – I’m still a little ways away from that. [laughs] But, I hope, there comes a time for that when I can, you know, I think all of the video stores will be gone by then, so I guess that’ll be a Netflix night, but hopefully I can do that kind of stuff. I really miss it bad going on the fishing trips. I grew up going on tons of fishing trips with my dad and brothers, and usually the holidays were a time to get to do that again, and I hope I can be half as awesome as my dad was with us, and knowing how much he worked taking the time to take us on those fishing trips.”

    Kip Moore just launched his BUD LIGHT DIVE BAR TOUR in Detroit, Michigan. He said fans will get a never-before-seen show, as they “dictate” what songs he and his band will play.

We’ll go deep in the catalog, and it’ll be unlike any show they’ve seen in a while,” says Kip. “As far as set lists go, we’ll have somewhat of a set list put together, but every night in the Bar Dive Tour will be a night the fans get to dictate what they want to hear. If we feel like they know the Wild Ones record the best, then that’s what we’ll go into. We’ll also play a lot more covers than we’ve ever played. We normally don’t play but one cover a show, and we might dig in deep to our original roots playing in these bar dives.”

The stacked tour has shows scheduled in the U.S., Canada and The U.K. where tickets to all four dates of his upcoming U.K. shows in London, Glasgow, Birmingham, and Manchester sold out within minutes of going on sale. Moore has relentlessly poured his energy into nurturing his international fanbase, with Music Row highlighting “Moore is part of a groundswell of rising country artists with a focus on building their international presence, and with good reason.” For more information, visit kipmoore.net.

  • KIP MOORE WILL CONTINUE TO TAKE TIME OFF TO RECHARGE HIS BATTERIES.

    For the past few years following the holidays, Kip Moore has taken time off to go surf and basically recharge his batteries. His job, like so many other folks who does what he does for a living, is pretty demanding both mentally and physically, and so he can be better and feel refreshed to do it all over again, he “disappears” for a bit and goes where the waves are calling to him.

    “I’m definitely going to disappear again. It’s something that I’ll probably do for the rest of my career is disappear during the winter. I’ve got to get that surfing in and I’ve got to hit that recharge button,” says Kip. “As cliché as that sounds, it truly wipes you out all of your mind, body, spirit, everything. I wouldn’t trade it for the world and I love doing it, but it takes a toll in so many ways mentally on you. So, when I get to get out and surf, it definitely brings me back to center and gets me ready to go again.”

    When Kip returns, he’ll hit the road on the 2019 leg of his Room to Breathe Acoustic Tour, which launches March 7th in Chicago. The Georgia native is sitting inside the Top 5 with his current hit, “Last Shot.”

    Audio / Kip Moore says he’ll continue to take time off to go surfing after the holidays.

  • KIP MOORE GIVES THE FANS WHAT THEY WANT.

    Kip Moore released his recent Room to Spare: The Acoustic Sessions in November, and it was driven by a promise to fans to share an acoustic EP. Kip co-wrote five of the seven tracks in the collection, including an acoustic versio of “Plead the Fifth.”

    The Georgia native felt it was time to release the new project. “We’d been playing the Slowheart record for the last year and a few months to so many people that I knew in the Spring and the Summer we were going to be touring again and we weren’t gonna have a new record,” says Kip. “So, it was more about they’d been asking for this acoustic thing and now’s the time ‘cause we’ve got to give them something to tide them over until I put out a full new project. And then it gives us a chance to go play – we’d already been planning this acoustic tour – and it was gonna give us a chance to go play new songs acoustically for these fans. So, and a lot of ‘em are old songs that the fans have been asking for, so I just felt like it was time.”

    1. Plead The Fifth (Acoustic Version)
    (Luke Dick, Josh Kear)

    1. Tennessee Boy

  • CHRISTMAS 2018: Kip Moore

    Kip Moore and his brothers would go on fishing trips with their dad around Christmas before the elder Moore passed away a few years ago, and it was always one of his favorite traditions. Another one of his favorite traditions was watching movies with his family on Christmas Eve.

    “The night before Christmas, we would rent a bunch of movies,” says Kip. “My dad would take us to the store, the video store and we would rent a bunch of movies and we’d watch them all through the night. That was always a thing that we’d look forward to was all hanging out together and laugh until 3 or 4 or 5 in the morning, then waking up two hours later for the presents.”

    With five brothers and sister and their expanding families back home in Georgia, Kip is having a lot of fun with all of his nieces and nephews around Christmas. “All my brothers and sisters started having kids around the same time a few years ago, so it’s like a house full of little five-year-olds and under just going nuts. So, it’s brought a lot of joy to the house.”

    The Georgia native will take some time off after the holidays and then launch the 2019 leg of his Room to Spare Acoustic Tour March 7th in Chicago.

    Audio / Kip Moore talks about one of his favorite Christmas traditions as a child, and he hopes to carry on those traditions with his future family.

    Kip Moore (Christmas) OC: …fishing trips. [laughs] 1:06
    “Growing up, the night before Christmas, we would rent a bunch of movies. My dad would take us to the store, the video store and we would rent a bunch of movies and we’d watch them all through the night. That was always a thing that we’d look forward to was all hanging out together and laugh until 3 or 4 or 5 in the morning, then waking up two hours later for the presents. I hope that I can carry that out when I have a family – I’m still a little ways away from that. [laughs] But, I hope, there comes a time for that when I can, you know, I think all of the video stores will be gone by then, so I guess that’ll be a Netflix night, but hopefully I can do that kind of stuff. I really miss it bad going on the fishing trips. I grew up going on tons of fishing trips with my dad and brothers, and usually the holidays were a time to get to do that again, and I hope I can be half as awesome as my dad was with us, and knowing how much he worked taking the time to take us on those fishing trips. I hope I can get the chance to do that with, I might even include my future wife on the fishing trips.” [laughs heartily]

  • KIP MOORE FELT PEACE WHEN MAKING HIS RECENT ALBUM, SLOWHEART.

    When Kip Moore was making his album Slowheart last year, he felt more peace with himself and with his music than he had ever felt before and he said it’s all due to his fans.

    “It was simply a more peace making this record because I finally learned through the ups and downs of Wild Ones that I had a fan base that was true,” says Kip. “They were truly fans and I felt they were latching on to the honesty, so I felt more open about showing whatever vulnerabilities I had, whatever directions I wanted to go. I could take them on whatever journey I wanted, and as long as I felt I stayed true to myself, I had a sense of peace that they were gonna come along for the ride. So I felt like that shined through in the project and I felt like I was a little more at peace making this project, so the melodies came out a little different.”

    His latest hit, “Last Shot,” is from Slowheart and is the follow-up to his fourth No. 1 song, “More Girls Like You.”

  • KIP MOORE AND LADY ANTEBELLUM’S HILLARY SCOTT GIVE ‘ONE VOICE’ TO ACM LIFTING LIVES.

    Kip Moore, Lady Antebellum’s Hillary Scott and Brandon Lay were among the country stars taking part in the 2018 ACM Lifting Lives Music Camp this past week. The artists work with the campers who have Williams Syndrome, a developmental disability, to create music and enjoy a wide variety of musical activities.

    Kip, along with songwriters Ross Copperman and Jon Nite, led the songwriting workshop in which they penned a song called “One Voice” with the campers.

    On Monday, the campers recorded the song at Oceanway Studio with producer and co-writer Ross Copperman, along with Hillary Scott. “It was such an unbelievable thing to witness,” she says. “My heart is full.”

    Hillary adds, “I’m a huge proponent for music in everybody’s life in some way and just the power of it and just how healing it can be and what an outlet it can be, so when I got asked to be a part of this – and I actually think I may have invited myself to the party, I was just so excited just to see the impact that music makes. But it’s not just the music, it’s their hearts and what they’re bringing to it. And to see that they wrote this song with Ross and Kip Moore and Jon Nite and just getting in that creative space with them had to be just life-changing. It’s the power of music.”

    Darius Rucker, Dierks Bentley and Kelsea Ballerini are among the artists who have previously participated in the ACM Lifting Lives Music Camp.

  • KIP MOORE’S ‘LAST SHOT’ IS A GOOD ‘OLD SCHOOL COUNTRY LOVE SONG.’

    Kip Moore’s “Last Shot,” which is making its way up the country charts, turned into a good “old school country love song” in the writing room. He co-wrote “Last Shot” — the follow-up to his No. 1 hit “More Girls Like You” — with the legendary David Lee Murphy and pal Dan Couch, and they hit gold once they figured out how to write the tune based on an idea Dan brought to them.

    “Dan actually came in with that idea and we just kind of danced around that song for probably three hours before we ever could tackle how to get it, where we wanted to go and you get a little bit of that old school Aerosmith vibe from the lyrics to the melodic sense even to the production of it,” says Kip. “I mean the minute David Lee said…When I started singing that melody, I was just humming and different stuff, and he said, ‘If you were my last breath/I’d just want to hold you,’ and I thought that was just such a brilliant line. So then it was just about, ‘Alright, this is a love song, this is an old school country love song right here,’ so that’s what we went with.”

    The Georgia native just wrapped a string of sold-out international shows and makes a summer run through fairs and festivals, among other tour dates. For information on Kip, check out kipmoore.net.

    Kip Moore (Last Shot) OC: . . . we went with. :47
    “’Last Shot’ was written with David Lee Murphy and Dan Couch. David Lee, the king of quirky phrasing . . . Dan actually came in with that idea and we just kind of danced around that song for probably three hours before we ever could tackle how to get it, where we wanted to go and you get a little bit of that old school Aerosmith vibe from the lyrics to the melodic sense even to the production of it. And, yeah, I mean the minute David Lee said…When I started singing that melody, I was just humming and different stuff, and he said, ‘If you were my last breath/I’d just want to hold you,’ and I thought that was just such a brilliant line. So then it was just about, ‘Alright, this is a love song, this is an old school country love song right here,’ so that’s what we went with.”

    Kip Moore (hits are special) OC: …be special. :44
    “Heck-any time you can get a hit, they’re all special. I think that all my music is authentic to me. I don’t write stuff that I don’t feel, or so I feel like ‘Hey Pretty Girl’ was super authentic to the way I felt in that moment. I didn’t have a family, but I was thinkin’ about it in terms of when I do go that route, that’s how I want to feel. I think with this one, it was just the maturation of where I was at in my life, so I wrote in that capacity of how I was growing. We were all talking about it in the room about how my life has changed. Any time you get a hit record, it’s something you should cherish. You don’t know when you’re gonna get ‘em again. I think for all of us it’s gotta be special.”

    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.

  • KIP MOORE ENJOYS A MOMENTOUS 2017!

    As the curtain closed on a sold-out show at New York City’s Town Hall last night (December 14th), multi-PLATINUM singer/songwriter Kip Moore took a bow to 2017, for what can only be described as a benchmark career year. Moore is wrapping up an overwhelming year on multiple “Best Of 2017” lists by Entertainment Weekly, Rolling Stone, UpRoxx,  Bobby Bones Show, Taste Of Country, Sounds Like Nashville, The Boot, PopMatters and Whiskey Riff for his revered third studio album SLOWHEART, while reflecting on his 4th career No. One for his “rousing” (UpRoxx) single “More Girls Like You,” sold-out headlining shows, national TV appearances and more.

    Moore kicked off the year with the release of his now No. One smash hit “More Girls Like You” in February. Moore released the wanderlust-inducing music video for the single exclusively with Travel & Leisure as he offered an unfiltered look into his trip to Costa Rica, one of many stops during an extended break to Iceland, Australia and more, that he also gave further insight to during a feature with Conde Nast Traveler.

    The momentum continued into the summer as Moore announced his highly-anticipated third studio album SLOWHEART, which was released on Sept. 9.  Leading up to the release, Moore teased fans offering advance listens to the album via NPR’s First Listen, song premieres with Noisey and American Songwriter, as well as live sessions with Billboard and Paste & Daytrotter Music. Upon release, critics were quick to praise the collection.

    “SLOWHEART is his most complete, cohesive declaration of his artistic sensibilities yet.” – American Songwriter

    “Kip Moore has been up all night, he’s been a wild one, but in 2017, he’s a slowheart. The titles of his albums have always been at least somewhat indicative of where he’s at in his life, and his third LP, SLOWHEART, shines a light on his more sensitive side” – Billboard

    “The most thrilling set of his career.” – Entertainment Weekly 

    “[Moore’s] strongest, most artistic album” – Forbes 

    “A thoroughly vital, 13-song collection…It’s not that Moore avoids contemporary country conventions. He enlivens them by injecting self-awareness or playing up the tensions between country and rock’s various masculine ideals.” – NPR 

    “As much influenced by a longtime love of Southern rock as traditional country music, SLOWHEART is the sound of an uncompromising, genre-defying artist firing on all cylinders.” – Noisey 

    “Between the rough edges of Americana, rock and the evocative storytelling of country, produced to let every guitar lick ring true and every edge and wail of Moore’s voice reverberate raw but strong” – Rolling Stone

    “With his grizzled voice, and the hint of humor lurking behind every roiling guitar solo, Moore was a shoo-in to dominate the sweet spot between radio hits and diehard old school fans.” – UpRoxx

    While undertaking his headlining PLEAD THE FIFTH fall tour in November, Moore celebrated his 4th No. One by performing “More Girls Like You” live on national TV on TODAY. In a milestone-heavy year, Moore also celebrated his breakout debut album UP ALL NIGHT, which spawned three No. One hit singles, being certified PLATINUM by the RIAA.

    Following the release of SLOWHEART, and in a year filled with reflection and honesty, Moore also delved into the process of making the album with his vulnerable documentary THE JOURNEY TO SLOWHEART, available to watch via VEVO now.  The refreshingly raw piece follows Moore as he returns to his hometown of Tifton, GA, as he looks back on his childhood and the importance of his family in shaping the artist he is today. Moore’s upbringing also sparked and influenced his charitable initiative “Kip’s Kids Fund,” which this year saw him team up with international skateboarding champion Tony Hawk to host  “MUSIC CITY SKATE JAM” in an effort to raise funds for hurricane-affected communities.

    Last night (12/14) in New York City, marked the final show on a limited acoustic-storyteller run, alongside fellow singer/ songwriters Randy Rogers and Wade Bowen, the stop marked the last of many capacity-crowd houses Moore has played to this year including his recently wrapped PLEAD THE FIFTH TOUR and a headlining sold-out stint across the pond earlier this fall, with CMT praising “it’s the way he expresses what’s on his mind that draws sold-out audiences around the world.” As Moore looks toward a stacked 2018, with the recent release of his “smoldering” (Rolling Stone) new single ”Last Shot,” he will hit the road again in February with Luke Bryan in Springfield, MO on 2/16 and will then head back across the pond for a highly-anticipated return to Europe’s Country To Country Festival taking place March 9-11 in London, UK, Glasgow, UK, and Dublin, I.E. For more information and a full list of tour dates visit kipmoore.net.

     

  • CHRISTMAS 2017: Kip Moore

    Kip Moore and his brothers would go on fishing trips with their dad around Christmas before the elder Moore passed away a few years ago, and it was always one of his favorite traditions. Another one of his favorite traditions was watching movies with his family on Christmas Eve.

    “The night before Christmas, we would rent a bunch of movies,” says Kip. “My dad would take us to the store, the video store and we would rent a bunch of movies and we’d watch them all through the night. That was always a thing that we’d look forward to was all hanging out together and laugh until 3 or 4 or 5 in the morning, then waking up two hours later for the presents.”

    The Georgia native has just released his new song, “Last Shot,” from his album Slowheart. He’s got a few dates left on the books to close out 2017, before hitting the road with Luke Bryan on the What Makes You Country Tour, kicking off February 16th in Springfield, Missouri.

    Audio / Kip Moore talks about one of his favorite Christmas traditions as a child, and he hopes to carry on those traditions with his future family.

    Kip Moore (Christmas) OC: …fishing trips. [laughs] 1:06
    “Growing up, the night before Christmas, we would rent a bunch of movies. My dad would take us to the store, the video store and we would rent a bunch of movies and we’d watch them all through the night. That was always a thing that we’d look forward to was all hanging out together and laugh until 3 or 4 or 5 in the morning, then waking up two hours later for the presents. I hope that I can carry that out when I have a family – I’m still a little ways away from that. [laughs] But, I hope, there comes a time for that when I can, you know, I think all of the video stores will be gone by then, so I guess that’ll be a Netflix night, but hopefully I can do that kind of stuff. I really miss it bad going on the fishing trips. I grew up going on tons of fishing trips with my dad and brothers, and usually the holidays were a time to get to do that again, and I hope I can be half as awesome as my dad was with us, and knowing how much he worked taking the time to take us on those fishing trips. I hope I can get the chance to do that with, I might even include my future wife on the fishing trips.” [laughs heartily]

    Kip Moore (last Christmas fishing trip) OC: …never forget that. :45
    “I went fishing with my dad for the last time. We all went fishing together during the holidays. Growing up as a kid, he was always taking us flats fishing up the Gulf Coast, and we all went one last time when we knew it was coming to an end. It was just one of those days – never in my life, so many times we had gone, we didn’t catch anything. I mean, it was every single cast for seven hours, we catch a fish. It was the wildest thing ever where I didn’t know it was possible to catch that many fish. It was the most amazing painted sunset when we were driving in that I’ve ever seen in my life. We just stopped the boat and we all just stared at it for a while, and you just knew, we would kind into that moment for that day. That was kind of given to us, and you knew that was going to be probably the last time that we got to take a fishing trip with him. It was special, man. I’ll never forget that.”

  • KIP MOORE RELEASES ‘LAST SHOT’ TO RADIO.

    Kip Moore just released his new single, “Last Shot,” which he co-wrote with the legendary David Lee Murphy and Dan Couch (who co-wrote Kip’s first No. 1 “Somethin’ Bout a Truck”). “Last Shot,” the follow-up to the chart-topping hit “More Girls Like You,” turned into an old-school country love song.

    “When I started singing that melody, I was just humming and different stuff, and [David Lee Murphy] said, ‘If you were my last breath I’d just want to hold you,’ and I thought that was just such a brilliant line,” says Kip. “So, then it was just about, ‘Alright, this is a love song, this is an old school country love song right here.’ So that’s what we went with.”

    The song is from his new album, Slowheart. The making of the collection came about after a process with Kip taking a lot of time off to spend time at home in Tifton, Georgia, as well as Iceland and Costa Rica, which was all captured in a documentary, Journey to Slowheart, which was shot and put together by his friend PJ Brown.

    “’Last Shot’ was written with David Lee Murphy and Dan Couch. David Lee, the king of quirky phrasing . . . Dan actually came in with that idea and we just kind of danced around that song for probably three hours before we ever could tackle how to get it, where we wanted to go and you get a little bit of that old school Aerosmith vibe from the lyrics to the melodic sense even to the production of it, and, yeah, I mean the minute David Lee said . . . When I started singing that melody, I was just humming and different stuff, and he said, ‘If you were my last breath I’d just want to hold you,’ and I thought that was just such a brilliant line, so then it was just about, ‘Alright, this is a love song, this is an old school country love song right here,’ so that’s what we went with.”

  • KIP MOORE RELEASES NEW SONG ‘LAST SHOT’ TO RADIO.

    Kip Moore is following up his recent No. One smash hit “More Girls Like You,” with his “smoldering” (Rolling Stone) new single ”Last Shot.”  The metaphor-driven and reflective ballad, co-written by Moore with Dan Couch and David Lee Murphy, is one of the most added songs at country radio this week and the second single taken from his third studio album “SLOWHEART,” praised 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 Moore continues to garner acclaim for SLOWHEART, with Billboard noting the record “shines a light on his more sensitive side,” he is also sharing more insight into the process of making the album with his vulnerable documentary THE JOURNEY TO SLOWHEART, out today.  Available to watch via VEVO now and on Qello beginning tomorrow, the documentary was created by Moore with his best friend and video director, PJ Brown.  The refreshingly raw piece follows Moore as he returns to his hometown of Tifton, GA, as he reflects on his childhood and the importance of his family in shaping the artist he is today.  Fans will also get a glimpse into the recording process behind Moore’s latest release with behind-the-scenes footage in the studio, as well as a look into his travels earlier this year that took him to Iceland, Costa Rica and more.
    SLOWHEART follows the acclaim that surrounded Moore’s sophomore album WILD ONES heralded as “an impressively singular release from Music Row” by The Guardian. Moore first turned heads with his debut album UP ALL NIGHT which was recently certified PLATINUM by the RIAA and 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. Moore, who has trail-blazed his own path with his reputation-making live show is currently undertaking his headlining PLEAD THE FIFTH TOUR with special guest Drake White. With no signs of slowing down this year, he will also hit the road with Randy Rogers and Wade Bowen for a limited run this December as part of a special solo acoustic stint dubbed TALL TALES AND THE TRUTH TOUR, kicking off in Denver, CO on 12/7.

  • KIP MOORE EARNS FOURTH NO. 1 SINGLE AS ‘MORE GIRLS LIKE YOU’ TOPS THE COUNTRY CHART.

    Kip Moore has hit the top of the Country Aircheck/Mediabase country chart with his smash hit, “More Girls Like You.” The song, which he co-wrote with Steven Olsen, Josh Miller and David Garcia, is from his new album, Slowheart, which was released last month and also features “Plead the Fifth,” “Blonde,” “Bittersweet Company” and “The Bull,” among others.

     

    “I wanna always make records that depict where I’m at at that particular place in my life. This is where I’m at in my life now where, I’m still a wildcard. I’m still aloof and I’m still like, might be a little ways away from that, but as I’ve traveled and I’ve been around and seen so many different walks of life and so many cultures, and it’s this constant thing,” says Kip. “I’ve watched dads being enamored of their daughters and I look forward to that now. I’m a lot more open to that now. So, that’s what the song is finding that person that you find so amazing that you hope they turn out like that amazing person does. It’s just a song that I, as I was writing it down, you know ‘I’ve been living like a wild old mustang/out in Montana fields.’ It’s like that’s just 100 percent to a T, that was the first line I said, where it was like we’re all on board; we know where it’s going, and the reason why I connect to it is I feel it 100 percent.”

    Kip just launched his Plead the Fifth Tour, which is set to stop in Pittsburgh (October 26th), Grand Rapids (October 27th) and Cincinnati (October 28th).

    With no signs of slowing down this year, Moore will also hit the road with Randy Rogers and Wade Bowen for a limited run this December as part of a special solo acoustic stint dubbed TALL TALES AND THE TRUTH TOUR.  The singer/songwriters will take the stage together each night, performing and sharing the intimate stories behind their songs, for a one-of-a-kind experience.

  • KIP MOORE’S ROAD TO SLOWHEART IS DOCUMENTED IN PHOTOS.

    slowheart

    Kip Moore documented his journey to his new album, Slowheart, with music, experiences, a documentary and photos, including those you see on the album.

    It wasn’t his idea to have cameras follow him 24/7, but he soon realized what a special journey he was on and embraced the idea. The video and photos of Kip’s experiences over the last year were the brainchild of his buddy and filmmaker PJ Brown, who also captured Kip in moments and memories, which ended up on the cover of his new album.

    “It’s not me in a room doing a photo shoot for a record. These are actual moments that were taking place that he was able to capture,” says Kip. “So, yeah, they all mean something different to me. You’re gonna see a lot of the pictures. We’re gonna have a whole photo album that’ll be for sale on the [website]. It shows, it’s captured so many moments, a lot of them they haven’t seen. So, I can remember even taking the album cover – you know that’s the best ice-cold coke in Costa Rica at that place, so I was kind of sitting back. I was just hanging out. I didn’t have any plans that day. It was just kinda letting the day come, and PJ was able to capture me in a pretty natural element.”

    Kip is making his way into the Top 5 on the country charts with his latest song, “More Girls Like You.”

    Audio / Kip Moore says the documentation of his experiences over the last year also made the cover of his new album, Slowheart.

    Multi-PLATINUM singer/songwriter Kip Moore‘s highly-anticipated and already-revered third studio album SLOWHEART is available everywhere today (9/8.) Kicking off release week, Moore will head to New York on 9/11 to perform his current Top 10 single “More Girls Like You” live on national TV on TODAY at 9am EST on NBC. While in the city, Moore will also perform and chat about the new release for an AOL Build Series livestream on 9/12 at 5.30pm EST; watch here. In the build up to the release, Moore has also teased fans offering advance listens to the album via NPR’s First Listen as well as live sessions with Billboard and Paste & Daytrotter Music.

    Moore’s most unflinching, distinct testimony yet, with co-producer, songwriter and instrumental credits thoughout the LP, critics have been quick to praise the release of SLOWHEART.

    “The record, which, as a whole, takes as many cues from rock as it does country, with soulful detours (“Blonde”), melodic anthems (“Bittersweet Company”), and radio-ready sing-alongs (lead single “More Girls Like You”) peppered throughout. Produced primarily by Moore himself, SLOWHEART is his most complete, cohesive declaration of his artistic sensibilities yet.” – American Songwriter 

    “Kip Moore has been up all night, he’s been a wild one, but in 2017, he’s a slowheart. The titles of his albums have always been at least somewhat indicative of where he’s at in his life, and his third LP, SLOWHEART, shines a light on his more sensitive side” – Billboard

    “A thoroughly vital, 13-song collection…It’s not that Moore avoids contemporary country conventions. He enlivens them by injecting self-awareness or playing up the tensions between country and rock’s various masculine ideals.” – NPR

    “As much influenced by a longtime love of Southern rock as traditional country music, SLOWHEART is the sound of an uncompromising, genre-defying artist firing on all cylinders.” – Noisey

    “Between the rough edges of Americana, rock and the evocative storytelling of country, produced to let every guitar lick ring true and every edge and wail of Moore’s voice reverberate raw but strong” – Rolling Stone

    “Moore 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

    Moore has hit his stride with SLOWHEART, and his current Top 10 single “More Girls Like You,” is the fastest rising single of his career and is receiving praise from critics such as Entertainment Weekly declaring he “has made a name for himself weaving vignettes of Southern, blue-collar life and love into rollicking country anthems.” SLOWHEART follows the acclaim that surrounded his sophomore album WILD ONES heralded as “an impressively singular release from Music Row” by The Guardian. Moore first turned heads with his debut album UP ALL NIGHT which was recently certified Double-PLATINUM by the RIAA and 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.”

    Kip is set to launch his Plead the Fifth Tour October 19th in Bowling Green, Ohio with opening acts Jordan Davis and Drake White, as well as headlining dates in U.K this fall. For more information and a full list of tour dates visit kipmoore.net.

    Audio / Kip Moore says that making Slowheart was a more peaceful experience for him.

    Kip Moore (At Peace Making Album) OC: . . . a little different. :41
    “It was simply a more peace making this record because I finally learned through the ups and downs of Wild Ones that I had a fan base that was true, they were truly fans and I felt they were latching on to the honesty, so I felt more open about showing whatever vulnerabilities I had, whatever directions I wanted to go. I could take them on whatever journey I wanted, and as long as I felt I stayed true to myself, I had a sense of peace that they were gonna come along for the ride. So, I felt like that shined through in the project, and I felt like I was a little more at peace making this project so the melodies came out a little different.”

    Audio / Kip Moore talks about producing the majority of Slowheart by himself.

    Kip Moore (Co-producing) OC: …in my head. :53
    “I co-produced Up All Night and Wild Ones, and I co-produced three or four of them on this record with David Garcia but I produced the rest by myself. The reason I wanted to do this record just by myself producing for the most part is I live with these songs for months and months and months, and the way I write, too, is I hear the entire musical layout in my head. What I do is I sing all the guitar parts in a voice recorder and then I’ll sing the bass line and then I’ll sing the drum grooves and then I’ll sing the backgrounds, and I’ll stack all this stuff, and then I go in and I learn those parts, so there’s an entire blueprint of the whole song. There’s no butting heads with anybody about . . . No, this is the way that I’ve got it in my head. I just felt like on this particular record, this was such a personal record for me, I wanted it to come out like I had it in my head and it’s come out just like I had it in my head.”

    Kip Moore (Naming Album Slowheart) OC: … said, ‘It’s Slowheart.’ :27
    “It felt that now was the right time. This record took a year and a half to make, so it was a slow process, and also the visual aspect of the record – everything matched cohesively. Even the album cover is the laid back feel of ‘I’m observing something before I make my move on something,’ so it was all that that kind of fit to where I knew that it was . . . I woke up one morning and said, ‘It’s Slowheart.’”

  • KIP MOORE DOESN’T SHOW HIS CARDS TOO SOON, MAKING HIM A SLOWHEART.

    Kip Moore is ready to release his new album, Slowheart, on Friday (September 8th). You may wonder why he is a Slowheart, however his diehard fans already know since that’s also the official fan club name.

    “It’s slowly coming into who I am still as a man. It’s slowly coming around on certain ideals I’ve had of who I am, where I want to go, who I want to be, slowly coming around on the idea of even love and what that means and the vulnerability that exposes and what I hope to be in that aspect, what I hope to be to somebody one day, where I’ve fallen short on that, where I can face that one day cause I know I’ve felt it but I’ve yet to really grasp it and grab a hold of it,” says Kip. “Slowheart is who I [am]. That’s why I got that nickname was somebody said I don’t show my cards and it takes me a while to come around, so I named the band that, the Slowhearts and then the fans the Slowhearts.”

    Slowheart features Kip’s latest Top 10 single, “More Girls Like You.”

    Kip will launch his Plead the Fifth Tour, featuring Jordan Davis and Drake White in Bowling Green, Ohio October 19th.

  • KIP MOORE DOCUMENTS HIS JOURNEY LEADING UP TO HIS NEW ALBUM ‘SLOWHEART.’

    Kip Moore has created a documentary with one of his best friends (video director PJ Brown) to detail the months he took off to travel the world, as well as the process of making his new album. The Journey to Slowheart begins with footage in his hometown at his mother’s house in Georgia. He drives around the town reminiscing on the good times with his parents and siblings. It is apparent that there are several key people in his life that have really had an influence on him and his views. He talks about his sister and “biggest hero” who was paralyzed from the waist down after a bad car accident when she was in high school. She describes Kip as being the most “caring brother who would do anything to help her.” He talks about his father, who passed away about 5 years ago and the heartbreak that goes along with that. He also talks about a man he met in Cancun, who has cancer, but he does not let that stop him.

    It wasn’t his idea to have cameras follow him 24/7, but he soon realized what a special journey he was on and embraced the idea. “PJ knew where I was at mentally. He knew the exhaustion that I had been dealing with, so when I decided to check out, he was like, ‘I want to come with you and I want to document where you are in the beginning of this journey, where you’re at the end of it and what comes about after it.’ So, he followed all of our travels and watching me just kind of evolve through those four months and come out of it and come back in the studio and finish the second half of this record,” says Kip. “So, we just felt like it was a crucial time. We knew that when I got done with those travels I was going to be trying to go back in and finish this record that I’d started on. So, I mean, I think he just wanted to capture what happened between the beginning of it and the end of it, and it wasn’t my idea; it was his, but once we got going, I could see that something pretty special was happening, so I’m glad we were able to capture it.”

    He decided to take a break from touring to see the world and for self-exploration. He traveled to Hawaii, Cancun, and Iceland. He traveled to Iceland with one of his best friends that he met in Nashville when he first moved there. Traveling gave Kip a new perspective on life and allowed him to recharge.

    Kip is scaling the country charts with “More Girls Like You,” which is from his new album, Slowheart, available September 8th.

I look up to who the human Tony Hawk is. So, yeah, we share the same passions as far as wanting to do something powerful you know in the inner-city.

He co-wrote 11 out of 13 tracks, and was the sole producer on seven of the tracks, as well as co-producing five more on the collection that is “between the rough edges of Americana, rock and the evocative storytelling of country, produced to let every guitar lick ring true and every edge and wail of Moore’s voice reverberate raw but strong” (Rolling Stone). Co-written by Moore, his current Top 15 single “More Girls Like You,” is the fastest rising single of his career so far and is receiving praise from critics such as Entertainment Weeklydeclaring he “has made a name for himself weaving vignettes of Southern, blue-collar life and love into rollicking country anthems.” Following an extended break, Moore is back out on the road playing some of country music’s biggest festivals this year, as well as his recently announced headlining PLEAD THE FIFTH TOUR kicking off on 10/19 and  headlining dates in U.K this fall stopping in Birmingham, UK (10/2), Manchester, UK (10/3), Glasgow, UK (10/4) and culminating in a special show as part of Country Music Week in London, UK at O2 Shepherd’s Bush Empire on 10/6.

  • KIP MOORE PICKS UP SOME HEAVY METAL FOR HIS DEBUT ALBUM.

    Singer/songwriter Kip Moore celebrated a major milestone last night, as his breakout debut album UP ALL NIGHT was certified PLATINUM by the RIAA. Kip was surprised by Universal Music Group Nashville’s Mike Dungan and Cindy Mabe with a commemorative plaque during an intimate event, hosted by CMT’s Leslie Fram, as he shared more insight into his upcoming third studio album SLOWHEART, available on September 8th.  He first shot out of the gate with UP ALL NIGHT, spawning 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.

    Co-written by Moore, his current Top 15 single and the lead track taken from SLOWHEART,  “More Girls Like You,” is the fastest rising single of his career so far and is receiving praise from critics such as Entertainment Weekly declaring he “has made a name for himself weaving vignettes of Southern, blue-collar life and love into rollicking country anthems.” As he “consistently serves up clever roots-rock riffs and rhythms that separate Moore from the rock-meets-rap focus of his Nashville peers” (Associated Press), the release of “More Girls Like You” also follows the acclaim that surrounded his sophomore album WILD ONES heralded as “an impressively singular release from Music Row” by The Guardian.

  • KIP MOORE IS OPEN AND READY FOR THE FUTURE.

    Kip Moore’s “More Girls Like You” is poised to enter the Top 10 on the country charts, and the song, which he co-wrote with Steven Olsen, Josh Miller and David Garcia, is one that is a good representation of where he would like to be some day.

    “I wanna always make records that depict where I’m at at that particular place in my life,” says Kip. “This is where I’m at in my life now where, I’m still a wildcard. I’m still aloof and I’m still like might be a little ways away from that, but as I’ve traveled and I’ve been around and seen so many different walks of life and so many cultures, and it’s this constant thing. I’ve watched dads being enamored of their daughters and I look forward to that now. I’m a lot more open to that now. So, that’s what the song is finding that person that you find so amazing that you hope they turn out like that amazing person does.”

    “More Girls Like You” is the first single from Kip’s new album, Slowheart, which will be available September 8th.

  • KIP MOORE REVEALS THE COVER FOR HIS UPCOMING THIRD ALBUM, SLOWHEART.

    KM Slowheart

    Kip Moore revealed the cover for his upcoming third studio album SLOWHEART, available Sept. 8.  Moore, who was inspired to name the release after his fiercely loyal fans who have adopted the name SLOWHEART themselves and who “defines himself by his honesty, which feeds directly into his music, which earned him a fan base of die-hards and helped make him a breakout star in Nashville,” (Washington Post) gave fans the opportunity to view and share the album cover first via social media. The cover image, taken in Costa Rica during Kip’s extended break earlier this year, speaks to the personal nature of the collection which Rolling Stone praises for its “gut-punch of a vintage album, the vocals out front and clear as crystal.”

    “My former guitar player called me a ‘slowheart’ many years ago, claiming I don’t just jump the gun and show all my cards or my emotions on what I truly feel,” said Moore. “He always said ‘you’re a slowheart, man…you observe before you act.’ I eventually named the band the slowhearts, and my fans are the slowhearts too. And so, its only fitting that the record I’ve been waiting to make, was named SLOWHEART.”

    Co-written by Moore, his current Top 15 single and the lead track “More Girls Like You,” is the fastest rising single of his career so far and is receiving praise from critics such as Entertainment Weekly declaring he “has made a name for himself weaving vignettes of Southern, blue-collar life and love into rollicking country anthems.” As he “consistently serves up clever roots-rock riffs and rhythms that separate Moore from the rock-meets-rap focus of his Nashville peers” (Associated Press), the release of “More Girls Like You” follows the acclaim that surrounded his sophomore album WILD ONES heralded as “an impressively singular release from Music Row” by The Guardian.

    Kip Moore shared more details about his most personal body of work to date today, revealing to Rolling Stone that his upcoming third studio album on MCA Nashville SLOWHEART will be released on September 8th.  Having navigated the path from the staggering success of the release of his smash-hit debut album UP ALL NIGHT, to the resounding critical acclaim that followed with his sophomore offering, WILD ONES, has hit his stride with the upcoming release of SLOWHEART.  Moore co-wrote 11 out of 13 tracks, and was the sole producer on seven of the tracks, as well as co-producing five more on the collection that is “between the rough edges of Americana, rock and the evocative storytelling of country, produced to let every guitar lick ring true and every edge and wail of Moore’s voice reverberate raw but strong” (Rolling Stone).  He also played guitar throughout the recording, while singing the majority of the harmonies, giving him a new found respect for the talented background vocalists within the Nashville community and resulting in the impactful authenticity of this record.

    As Rolling Stone aptly describes, “The Georgia native is nothing if not steadfast: he does what he wants, how he wants it, and doesn’t try to shuffle his emotions under the table. He talks openly about depression and self-doubt, and, on Slowheart, about the life of a grown, modern man, one who wants a family sometimes but seeks a few no-strings thrills at others. He sings about fighting for a relationship at all costs, but also knowing when to pour the last round; and about how music is his real lover, while everything else is just an affair.”

    With a wayfarer impulse, Moore followed years on the road touring building one of the genre’s most fervent followings with an extended break exploring the rest of the world, including stops in Iceland, Hawaii, Australia, Costa Rica, Park City and more. This time of reflection culminated in a striking sense of clarity, showcased in Moore’s upcoming collection. With a tip of the hat to 90’s rock and roll, the anthemic “Bittersweet Company” is destined for a spot on the setlist of Moore’s revered live show, as well as “Last Shot” with it’s encore-ready, emphatic chorus. Moore also serves an unflinching wake-up call in the form of the groove-driven track “Blonde,” while he lays bare a more vulnerable layer in the committed ballad, “Try Again.”

    “This is the record I’ve been waiting to make,” said Moore. “The one that leaves you with a peace in your heart, knowing you did it exactly the way you wanted to. The one that makes it okay if you fail, because it truly came from your soul and no other place. You can’t go wrong if you can lay your head on your pillow with no regrets.”

    Co-written by Moore, his current Top 20 single and the lead track from his upcoming release “More Girls Like You,” is the fastest rising single of his career so far and is receiving praise from critics such as Entertainment Weekly declaring he “has made a name for himself weaving vignettes of Southern, blue-collar life and love into rollicking country anthems.” As he “consistently serves up clever roots-rock riffs and rhythms that separate Moore from the rock-meets-rap focus of his Nashville peers” (Associated Press), the release of “More Girls Like You” follows the acclaim that surrounded his sophomore album WILD ONES heralded as “an impressively singular release from Music Row” by The Guardian. Moore first turned heads with his debut album UP ALL NIGHT which was certified GOLD by the RIAA and 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. Following an extended break, Moore is back out on the road playing some of country music’s biggest festivals this year, as well as headlining dates in U.K this fall stopping in Birmingham, UK (10/2), Manchester, UK (10/3), Glasgow, UK (10/4) and culminating in a special show as part of Country Music Week in London, UK at O2 Shepherd’s Bush Empire on 10/6. Moore will also return to Ireland later this summer for Harvest 2017, stopping in Westport, IE (8/26) and Enniskillen, IE (8/27.)

  • KIP MOORE HAS FOUND A SIMILAR SPIRIT IN BILLY CURRINGTON.

    Kip Moore took some time off at the end of last year through the beginning of 2017, and he traveled to several places including Iceland and Hawaii. It was in the South Pacific where Kip ran into pal Billy Currington to ride the waves for a day. Kip hopes the two will do more surfing together.

    “I’ve been around Billy many a’times and he was one of my first major tours that I did about five or six years ago,” says Kip. “It’s like you can come across somebody and you can always have that small talk and whatever, but I freaking love the dude now, man. We’ve talked about taking some surfing trips together from here on out. He’s a solid, solid dude, and he’s got a lot to say actually when you get in that environment where, where you’re both comfortable to really be yourself, and we had a blast. We got into things. We had a good time.”

    Kip is making his way up the country charts with his latest single, “More Girls Like You.”

Somebody was asking me what kind of woman is it gonna take for me to settle down with, and it’s definitely gonna take somebody that can go with the flow, that’s for sure.”

  • KIP MOORE RAMPS BACK UP, ANNOUNCING A HEADLINING U.K. TOUR.

    Kip Moore is getting back into the touring groove following trips to Costa Rica, Iceland, Australia and more, announcing today that he will return to the U.K this fall for a stint of headlining shows. The announcement is sure to be welcomed by Moore’s fervent international fanbase, with his previous headlining shows last spring selling out months in advance, prompting the move to bigger venues and inspiring unforgettable, impromptu post-show jams in the streets.

    Moore has also invited Drake White and The Big Fire out on the highly-anticipated run, that will stop in Birmingham, UK (10/2), Manchester, UK (10/3), Glasgow, UK (10/4) and culminate in a special show as part of Country Music Week in London, UK at O2 Shepherd’s Bush Empire on 10/6. Country Music Week is a brand new week-long series of shows, created by the organizers of the hugely successful Country To Country music festival.  Moore first connected with fans during his debut performance as part of the festival two years ago, when he turned heads as he “led the 20,000-capacity through a singalong” (Rolling Stone Country.) Tickets to the shows will go on sale on Friday 19th May at 9am GMT here.

    2017 is picking up momentum fast for Moore, as he will also return to Ireland later this summer for Harvest 2017, stopping in Westport, IE (8/26) and Enniskillen, IE (8/27.) Co-written by Moore, his new single “More Girls Like You,” and the lead single from his upcoming third album, is the fastest rising single of his career so far. The track is receiving praise from critics such as Taste Of Country, who notes the track “doubles down on a heavy, thumping formula he relied on to create one of the best country albums of 2015” and Entertainment Weekly declaring he “has made a name for himself weaving vignettes of Southern, blue-collar life and love into rollicking country anthems.” As he “consistently serves up clever roots-rock riffs and rhythms that separate Moore from the rock-meets-rap focus of his Nashville peers” (Associated Press), the release of “More Girls Like You” follows the acclaim that surrounded his sophomore album WILD ONES heralded as “an impressively singular release from Music Row” by The Guardian. Moore first turned heads with his debut album UP ALL NIGHT which was certified GOLD by the RIAA and 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. Following an extended break, Moore is back out on the road playing some of country music’s biggest festivals this year, most recently at Stagecoach in California.  This follows a recent trip to Australia where he was met by a staggering fan base, as well as a characteristically stacked touring schedule last year as he completed his fiercely successful WILD ONES TOUR, that he also unleashed across the pond for headlining sold-out dates in the UK and Ireland.

    Kip Moore is reflecting on his recent extended break, premiering the insightful lyric video for his new single, “More Girls Like You” exclusively on Travel & Leisure today. Offering an unfiltered look into his trip to Costa Rica, Moore shares scenes of local life, surfing and enjoying impromptu jam sessions, with stunning surroundings playing as an instrumental backdrop.

    “I love to travel and really embrace the surrounding culture wherever I am,” said Moore. “I never have much of a plan when I go, just the destination and am always open to meeting people and having memorable experiences.  My best friend PJ is an amazing videographer and photographer, and he was able to document a lot of this trip and we thought it would be an interesting way to show that other side of my life when I’m not on the road and touring non-stop.  I’ll be back on the road playing shows soon, but I may have a few more stops in the works before then.”

    2017 is picking up momentum fast for Moore, with “More Girls Like You” debuting as most added at country radio last week, as well as the most added of his career to date. Co-written by Moore, the single is also receiving praise from critics such as Taste Of Country who notes the track “doubles down on a heavy, thumping formula he relied on to create one of the best country albums of 2015” and Entertainment Weekly declaring he “has made a name for himself weaving vignettes of Southern, blue-collar life and love into rollicking country anthems.”

    As he “consistently serves up clever roots-rock riffs and rhythms” (Associated Press), the release of “More Girls Like You” follows the critical acclaim that surrounded Moore’s UNDERGROUND EP, a five-track collection that “strikes the defiant tone that’s been a part of his artistry” (Rolling Stone) as well as his sophomore album WILD ONES heralded as “an impressively singular release from Music Row” by The Guardian. Moore first turned heads with his debut album UP ALL NIGHT which was certified GOLD by the RIAA and 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.

  • KIP MOORE RETURNS FROM A MUCH-NEEDED VACATION.

    Kip Moore is back from his much-needed break. After his Me & My Kind Tour stop in Chicago December 10th, he took time off the road for basically the first time since he started his musical journey.

    “I just said I was going to take a little break. I never meant that I was going to go away for a long, long time, but I mean I had only had more than seven of eight days off for about six years. I mean, that was the maximum I had in between tours. So, when you’re doing 200 shows a year for six years straight, you know, a week just doesn’t quite cut it,” says Kip. “And, three months off is a pretty long time for me. You know, I didn’t know exactly know how long I was gonna take, but I pretty much had finished the record before I left and so I was able to completely disconnect from it. And, I went to Maui first, then went to Costa Rica, then went to Park City, and now I’m back. Now I’m ready to go.”

    Kip, who’s making his way up the country charts with “More Girls Like You,” returns to the road Friday (March 3rd) in Plant City, Florida.

  • KIP MOORE’S NEW SINGLE, ‘MORE GIRLS LIKE YOU,’ IS AVAILABLE ON iTUNES TODAY.

    Kip Moore has released his new single, “More Girls Like You,” as the lead single off his next upcoming project. The song, available at iTunes today, was co-produced and co-written by Moore alongside Steven Olsen, Josh Miller and David Garcia.

    “I’ve never been that guy looking for a relationship and solitude has never scared me,” said Moore.  “I’ve never bought into the societal pressure of following the A, B and C steps of life, but I still look forward to the family chapter. This song is about meeting that someone you find so amazing inside and out, that you can only pray the kids you have together are just as amazing as she is. That’s the kind of woman I hope to end up with.”

    A tireless road warrior and perpetual songwriter, Moore took an extended vacation after years on the road and shared some of his experiences and details behind the new single with Entertainment Weekly and PEOPLE, as well as the reason behind releasing his five-song EP, Underground.

    Last October, after years of heavy touring and with plans to take the first extended break in his career, Kip released Underground. “That was to be like, ‘Hey, I appreciate you guys waiting on the record, I know I take forever,’” he says.

    You can catch Kip as he performs the classic “I Second That Emotion” as part of the PBS special, Smokey Robinson: The Library of Congress Gershwin Prize for Popular Song, tonight (February 10th) at 9pm ET.

  • CHRISTMAS 2016: Kip Moore

    Kip Moore and his brothers would go on fishing trips with their dad around Christmas before the elder Moore passed away a few years ago, and it was always one of his favorite traditions. Another one of his favorite traditions was watching movies with his family on Christmas Eve.

    “The night before Christmas, we would rent a bunch of movies,” says Kip. “My dad would take us to the store, the video store and we would rent a bunch of movies and we’d watch them all through the night. That was always a thing that we’d look forward to was all hanging out together and laugh until 3 or 4 or 5 in the morning, then waking up two hours later for the presents.”

    The Georgia native is taking some time off from touring before he hits the road next spring.

    Audio / Kip Moore talks about one of his favorite Christmas traditions as a child, and he hopes to carry on those traditions with his future family.

That was always a thing that we’d look forward to was all hanging out together and laugh until 3 or 4 or 5 in the morning, then waking up two hours later for the presents. I hope that I can carry that out when I have a family – I’m still a little ways away from that. [laughs] But, I hope, there comes a time for that when I can, you know, I think all of the video stores will be gone by then, so I guess that’ll be a Netflix night, but hopefully I can do that kind of stuff. I really miss it bad going on the fishing trips. I grew up going on tons of fishing trips with my dad and brothers, and usually the holidays were a time to get to do that again, and I hope I can be half as awesome as my dad was with us, and knowing how much he worked taking the time to take us on those fishing trips. I hope I can get the chance to do that with, I might even include my future wife on the fishing trips.” [laughs heartily]

  • KIP MOORE PUTS THE WRAPS ON A GREAT 2016!

    Kip Moore wrapped an accomplished year with a string of sold-out headlining dates this past weekend.  Playing to capacity crowds in Detroit, MI and a two-night run in Chicago, IL, Moore executed 20 sold-out shows during his ME & MY KIND TOUR, that showcased him as “one of country music’s most impressive headline acts” (Sounds Like Nashville), praised by critics and fans across the country. Moore held up his “reputation for rowdy, high-energy party shows” (Detroit Free Press) as he was continually “met with more deafening applause.” (CMT) Kip took Jon Pardi along for the ride.

    Moore charged into 2016 on the 2nd leg of his fiercely successful WILD ONES TOUR that he also unleashed across the pond for a stint of “eagerly anticipated” (Think Country) headlining sold-out dates in the UK and Ireland.  An unabating road warrior, Moore “cemented that special bond between crowd and performer…daring to be different, daring to take a risk, he is able to take the crowd further than most artists can by the sheer force of his performance” (2 Country Radio) during his time overseas, where he had to move to bigger venues to meet overwhelming demand. Fans were also able to catch the “kinetic live performer” (Kansas City Star) out on Miranda Lambert’s KEEPER OF THE FLAME TOUR during the summer.

    Moore also gave fans a personal look into his charitable initiative, “Comeback Kid Skatepark Project,” when CBS This Morning visited his Nashville skatepark available to watch here. Moore continued the project this year when he launched a new skatepark In Cincinnati, OH this summer, adding to phase one of the existing skateparks that include Nashville, TN; Boston, MA; San Marcos, TX and Annapolis, MD. A passion project of Moore’s, with the goal of finding an outlet to showcase his love for the alternative sports lifestyle, specifically skateboarding, and his desire to help inner city children.

  • KIP MOORE ANNOUNCES ‘UNDERGROUND’ EP, AVAILABLE OCTOBER 28TH.

    Kip Moore announced today that he will release UNDERGROUND, a 5-track EP that draws inspiration from his unyielding time out on the road touring, and a personal response to the demand felt from his steadfast fans for new music.  Available starting October 28th, Kip co-wrote every track on the EP and audiences across the country will be able to experience the new tracks live this fall on his ME AND MY KIND TOUR. Fans can pre-order the EP, on which multiple tracks were recorded live, starting today here.

    UNDERGROUND opens with Moore’s signature unapologetic, but confessional attitude in “All Time Low” which bleeds into the uptempo, yet muscular “My Kind.” Listeners are offered a taste of what they’re missing if they haven’t made it out to a show, with live performances of the anthemic “Midnight Slow Dance” and the reflective, but defiant “Separate Ways.” The EP culminates in the infectiously longing track “My Baby’s Gone,” showcasing Moore in his unfiltered element.

    “The problem I often face is leaving behind some songs, because I never stop writing,” said Moore. “I write so many that some never see the light of day.  I’ve been working on a full record, which looks to be coming out in late spring, but everywhere we go the fans keep asking for the recordings of these underground songs that they’ve been hearing for the last few years.  They’re a passionate fan base so I decided to ask my label if I could record these songs live and give them the raw recordings.  These songs are completely separate from the new record I’ve been making, I simply made this EP for the true fans.”

    UNDERGROUND EP Track List:

    1. All Time Low
      (Kip Moore, Westin Davis, Luke Dick)2. My Kind
      (Kip Moore, Erik Dylan, Justin Weaver)3. Midnight Slow Dance (Live)

I’ve been a fan of theirs for quite a while, and I heard the record that’s out now long before it came out and I was just such a fan immediately. I’m definitely pulling for those guys to become big stars in the game.”

  • KIP MOORE’S LATEST SINGLE BRINGS SPECIAL VALIDATION DURING HIS LIVE SHOWS.

    Kip Moore is currently inside the Top 15 on the country charts with his latest hit, “Running for You,” which is featured on his Wild Ones album. Long before the song was released, he would receive a lot of positive attention when he launched into “Running for You.”

    “Audience reaction to ‘Running for You’ has been pretty special for us for a while. I’ve always believed in the song, and I think what we’re seeing every night with the way the crowd is singing it back, it’s just bringing validation to what I’ve always believed with this song.”

    Kip is currently out on the road with Miranda Lambert and Brothers Osborne on the Keeper of the Flame Tour, which runs through September 16th in Austin, Texas.

  • KIP MOORE OPENS NEW SKATEPARK IN CINCINNATI, OHIO.

    Kip Moore opened a new skatepark in Cincinnati, Ohio yesterday as part of his “Comeback Kid Skatepark Project.”  The Warsaw Federal Skatepark, a project of the Lower Price Hill Neighborhood Enhancement Program, features a 35-foot-by-68-foot pump track, three grind rails and a Hubba skate ledge. Kids in attendance were surprised with free skateboards, helmets, knee pads, and backpacks filled with T-shirts and socks.
    “I’m always searching for purpose in my life,” said Kip Moore.  “I battle the feeling of if I’m doing enough with the small amount of time I have on this earth each day.  I’m so blessed to get to do what I do, but I have always believed with those blessings come responsibility. Days like today give me that feeling of purpose. I get to see a direct impact in a needed community. I get to see the smiles on these kid’s faces and the positive impact it creates.  There are so many things I wanna do in the inner cities and this is just the beginning.”

As Moore continues to be “met with more deafening applause” (CMT) he is currently on the road for Miranda Lambert’s Keeper Of The Flame Tour.  Hailed as a “career song” by Billboard, Moore’s current single “Running For You” continues to climb the charts and is taken from Moore’s critically acclaimed sophomore album WILD ONES, that Taste of Country deems is “tailored for his live show and the thousands of die-hard fans that pack theaters several times each week to see him,” and Huffington Post declares as “one heck of an album… set to produce hit after hit after hit.” WILD ONES follows Moore’s debut album UP ALL NIGHT which was certified GOLD by the RIAA and 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.”

    Kip Moore (skating and surfing brings balance) OC: …for people. :45
    “For me there’s something spiritual that happens with skating, surfing. The main thing for me is there’s such a community with the two sports. Whereas the other sports feel so individualized, and even though these are still individualized sports, there’s more of a community and brotherhood to these things. That was why I wanted to do it, to bring camaraderie to the community and the kids. It brings a sense of peace to me in that kind of way and ways I cannot explain. When I’m out in the water at 6 o’clock in the morning and the sun’s coming up, those are the times when I feel closest to God and where I need to be, and it brings it all back to center for me. I need those times when I’m out roaddogging it like crazy, and I think skating does the same thing for people.”

    Kip Moore is having a blast on the road with Miranda Lambert and her Keeper of the Flame Tour, along with Brothers Osborne. He said he’s been waiting for a long time to tour with the female vocalist.

    “I’ve been waiting to tour with Miranda a long time, and it’s a true pleasure to get the chance to go out and see such a pro go out and do her thing,” says Kip.

    He says she is what he strives to be on stage as a headliner. “Miranda brings everything I hope to be as a headliner to the stage. She brings honesty. She brings great songs. She has a true craft of working the stage. Everything about Miranda is endearing on stage, and that’s what I always hope that I can naturally pull in a crowd the way she does.”

    The next stop on the Keeper of the Flame Tour is Thursday (May 19th) in Bethel, New York and Friday (May 20th) in Virginia Beach.

    Kip is making his way up the country charts with his latest single, “Running for You,” which is from his Wild Ones album.

  • KIP MOORE WOWS FANS IN EUROPE.

    kip europe

    Known for building one of country music’s most loyal fan bases in the U..S,  Kip Moore looks to have emulated this fervent following in the UK and Ireland in the wake of his headlining stint across the pond this past week.  Moore’s return was “eagerly anticipated” (Think Country) with the majority of shows selling out months in advance, prompting the move to bigger venues.  Fans and critics agree he “cemented that special bond between crowd and performer…daring to be different, daring to take a risk, he is able to take the crowd further than most artists can by the sheer force of his performance” (2 Country Radio).

    Kicking off in Dublin on Friday (4/22), Moore set the pace with a raucous show that led to an impromptu after-show performance at the stage door for fans who weren’t ready to call it a night, followed by a sold-out crowd in Glasgow (4/23) where he again took to the historic streets of the city after his performance to keep the party going.  Rowdy shows in England beckoned as Moore played to packed houses in Birmingham (4/25), Manchester (4/26) and he closed out the triumphant run with a sold-out show in London last night (4/27).

    Moore will head back out on the road next month for Miranda Lambert’s Keeper Of The Flame Tour, which kicks off in St. Louis, MO on 5/13 and also features Brothers Osborne. His current single, “Running For You,” continues to climb the charts and was taken from the critically acclaimed sophomore album WILD ONES that VICE declares “sprinkles a little late-night Bonnaroo magic…that’s made to be witnessed live.” WILD ONES follows Moore’s debut album UP ALL NIGHT which was recently certified GOLD by the RIAA and 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.”

  • KIP MOORE’S LATE-NIGHT MELODY TURNS INTO HIS LATEST HIT, ‘RUNNING FOR YOU.’

    Most of the time, Kip Moore can’t really turn off that creative, artistic side that has him chasing that cool chord progression or that   So, when he comes off the road from being on tour, his mind is usually buzzing with song or melody ideas that he has to get down before going to sleep. His current single was born from one of those moments.

    I wrote ‘Running for You’ possibly four years ago [with] Blair Daly and Troy Verges,” says Kip. “The guitar groove was something that me getting off the road at two o’clock in the morning when I was living in that awful room, which made me, there’s no TVs, there’s no couches, there’s no nothing. All it was was guitar amps and guitars, and it made me stay in that really strange place mentally. I remember that night picking up the guitar and coming up with that really cool thing and kind of some of that melody.”

    “Running for You” is from his latest album, Wild Ones.

    Kip is currently Down Under for the CMC Rocks Queensland Festival. He’ll return to the States in time to perform during the ACM Party for a Cause April 3rd in Las Vegas.

    Audio / Kip Moore talks about writing his current hit single, “Running for You.”

    Kicking off in October last year, the first leg of the WILD ONES Tour also hosted multiple sold-out dates including Boston, MA; London, ON; Toronto, ON; Cleveland, OH; Springfield, IL and a two night run in Chicago, IL that spurred the extension of the tour.

    “It’s hard to explain what’s happening out on the road with us and the fans unless you have seen it in person,” said Moore. “These fans have been faithfully returning for the past couple years and so now it really feels like we’re all in this together. They show up and they know every word to every song, whether it’s been on the radio or not, and for that we are truly grateful.”

    Hot on the heels of his sold-out tour, Moore will head over to Australia for the first time next month, followed by headlining shows in The UK and Ireland in April.  Fan demand has led to bigger venues being scheduled in Birmingham, UK; Dublin, IE; Manchester, UK and Glasgow, UK and Moore will close out the run with a headlining sold-out date in London, UK. Moore recently released the “beautifully shot music video” (Country Weekly) for his current single “Running For You,” which was taken from Moore’s critically acclaimed sophomore album WILD ONES that VICE declares “sprinkles a little late-night Bonnaroo magic…that’s made to be witnessed live.” WILD ONES follows Moore’s debut album UP ALL NIGHT which was recently certified GOLD by the RIAA and spawned three No. One hit singles including GOLD certified “Beer Money,” PLATINUM certified “Hey Pretty Girl,” and Moore’s DOUBLE PLATINUM breakout hit “Somethin’ ‘Bout A Truck.”

  • KIP MOORE RELEASES THE VIDEO FOR HIS LATEST SINGLE, ‘RUNNING FOR YOU.’

    Kip Moore premiered the emotion-driven music video for “Running For You” on VEVO Friday (February 12th).  Moore is cast as the male lead in the passionate and fiery video that follows him and his leading lady as they face the individual challenges of their respective career paths, culminating in a dramatic Hollywood-style ending.  Moore tapped his longtime friend PJ Brown to direct the video, though he had never been in the director’s chair before.
    “I’ve been friends with PJ for years, he was the main one pushing me to chase my passion and move to Nashville,” said Moore. “He’s been able to document some of my concerts here and there, but we haven’t worked together on this level before.  This song is unlike other songs I’ve released before and so I wanted the video to be really different from any of my other videos.  PJ was able to bring our vision to life and I’m glad that the label let me take a chance on him.””Running for You” is from Kip’s latest album, Wild Ones.
    Moore continues to make an impression overseas as demand in Europe has led to bigger venues being scheduled in Birmingham, UK and Dublin, IE following venue capacity increases in Manchester, UK and Glasgow, UK almost immediately following on-sales, ahead of his stint in April. This fervent fan-following was established during Moore’s first visit across the pond last year when he “led the 20,000-capacity through a singalong” (Rolling Stone) at the O2 Arena in London. Moore continues his headlining WILD ONES TOUR this weekend with stops in Denver, CO (2/12) and Salt Lake City, UT (2/13) followed by a string of dates in Canada.  For a full list of dates and more information visit www.kipmoore.net.

This fall Moore undertook a stream of sold-out dates on his headlining WILD ONES TOUR that night after night saw fans singing along to every track, radio single or not.
    Moore also looked to give back in the face of a wildly successful year, launching his first charitable initiative known as the “Comeback Kid Skatepark Project.” Phase one of the project oversaw the construction of a series of skateparks in Nashville, TN; Boston, MA; San Marcos, TX; and Annapolis, MD to benefit communities and “comeback kids.”  The project stemmed from Moore’s desire to provide an alternative outlet for youth to engage in healthy habits and physical activities like skateboarding while the inspiration for the name of the project came from “Comeback Kid,” a personal anthem from Moore’s sophomore album.
    As Moore looks to a New Year there are no signs of slowing down yet.  Fans will be able to experience Moore’s album that Country Weekly declares “matches the energy of his live show” for themselves as Moore recently announced the second leg of his headlining WILD ONES TOUR that will continue across the U.S and Canada due to fan demand.  For more information and updates, visit www.kipmoore.net

  • CHRISTMAS 2015: Kip Moore

    Kip Moore and his brothers would go on fishing trips with their dad around Christmas before the elder Moore passed away a couple of years ago, and it was always one of his favorite traditions. Another one of his favorite traditions was watching movies with his family on Christmas Eve.

    “The night before Christmas, we would rent a bunch of movies,” says Kip. “My dad would take us to the store, the video store and we would rent a bunch of movies and we’d watch them all through the night. That was always a thing that we’d look forward to was all hanging out together and laugh until 3 or 4 or 5 in the morning, then waking up two hours later for the presents.”

    The Georgia native is extending his WILD ONES TOUR into 2016 adding stops across the U.S. as well as Canada.  The second leg of the tour will kick off in Milwaukee, WI on 1/28, with special guests The Cadillac Three and Chase Bryant joining on select dates.

    Audio / Kip Moore talks about one of his favorite Christmas traditions as a child, and he hopes to carry on those traditions with his future family.

That was always a thing that we’d look forward to was all hanging out together and laugh until 3 or 4 or 5 in the morning, then waking up two hours later for the presents. I hope that I can carry that out when I have a family – I’m still a little ways away from that. [laughs] But, I hope, there comes a time for that when I can, you know, I think all of the video stores will be gone by then, so I guess that’ll be a Netflix night, but hopefully I can do that kind of stuff. I really miss it bad going on the fishing trips. I grew up going on tons of fishing trips with my dad and brothers, and usually the holidays were a time to get to do that again, and I hope I can be half as awesome as my dad was with us, and knowing how much he worked taking the time to take us on those fishing trips. I hope I can get the chance to do that with, I might even include my future wife on the fishing trips.” [laughs heartily]

    Moore recently released his new single “Running For You” that Billboard hails is a “a career song from the album” and was the most added song at country radio in its debut week.  The new single is taken from Moore’s sophomore album WILD ONES that Huffington Post declared as “one heck of an album… set to produce hit after hit after hit” and that Associated Press noted “consistently serves up clever roots-rock riffs and rhythms that separate Moore from the rock-meets-rap focus of his Nashville peers” and Entertainment Weekly proclaims it “reaches for the stadium’s nosebleeds.”  Moore also recently launched the “Comeback Kid Skatepark Project,” a charitable initiative that will oversee the construction of a series of skateparks to benefit communities and “comeback kids.” Phase one cities of the project include Nashville, TN; Boston, MA; San Marcos, TX; and Annapolis, MD.
  • KIP MOORE RELEASES NEW SINGLE, ‘RUNNING FOR YOU.’

    Kip Moore has revealed “Running For You” will be the second single from his sophomore album WILD ONES. Co-written by Moore alongside Blair Daly and Troy Verges, the personal and emphatic track that Billboard heralded as “a career song from the album” is available at country radio Monday (October 12th).

    Moore’s new single comes hot on the heels of his headlining 2015 WILD ONES TOUR kicking off tonight (10/8) in Bethlehem, PA.  Known for making a lasting impression at his live shows with Washington Post stating Moore “is a natural when he’s on stage,”  the list of advance sell-outs is stacking up including dates in Boston, MA, London, ON, Toronto, ON and a two night run in Chicago, IL. Moore is also partnering with Evan Williams Bourbon on the tour, the brand will be the “Official Bourbon” at each of the 25 stops.

    “Just because a relationship doesn’t work out the way you hoped it would, it doesn’t mean you can’t wish that person all the best and that’s what I was drawing on in this song,” said Moore.  “Whenever we’ve played ‘Running For You’ in our set it always feels like a real ‘moment.’ We’ve had a couple weeks of downtime since our summer run and honestly we’re already just itching to get back out there and I’m looking forward to doing what we do on stage.”

    Moore’s recently released sophomore album WILD ONES was received with critical praise with Huffington Post hailing it as “one heck of an album… set to produce hit after hit after hit” while The Guardian heralded it as “an impressively singular release from Music Row…unlike anything else in country music at the moment.”

    Kip Moore (Running for You) 2 OC: …about you. :24
    “I think that song is if you truly care about somebody and you really care about ‘em, I don’t think it comes with conditions and terms, which we do so much. It’s human nature, unless it’s on our terms. But this song is more about if I truly care about you, then I want you to be good without me. If you’re not supposed to be with me right now, then I want you to be great with whoever and whatever you’re going on with your life. I really care about you.”

    MULTI-PLATINUM singer/ songwriter Kip Moore is heading into rehearsals for his 2015 WILD ONES TOUR, following a raucous summer out on the road as part of the stacked 2015 SOUNDS OF SUMMER tour lineup with Dierks Bentley, playing venues across the country as well as some of the biggest festivals this year.  Rolling Stone commended that “Kip Moore stuck to what he what he does best, performing his brand of U2-meets-Bob Seger raspy country-rock,” while Village Voice remarked “[Moore] is the definition of laid-back country cool… tracks from Wild Ones went over beautifully with the crowd.”
    Following curtain call on his summer gig with Bentley, Moore changed gears and headed to New York City yesterday (9/21) to tape an intimate stripped-down performance as part of Front and Center’s CMA Songwriters Series, set to air in early 2016 on Public Televison.  Moore was joined on stage by renowned songwriters Brett James and Jaren Johnston, where their set included tracks taken from Moore’s new album WILD ONES. Moore’s much anticipated sophomore album continues to garner critical praise with The Guardian recently declaring WILD ONES as “an impressively singular release from Music Row…unlike anything else in country music at the moment, and it pulses with energy and strong rock melodies.”
    A performer that Washington Post declares “is a natural when he’s on stage,” Moore is now gearing up to kick off his headlining 2015 WILD ONES on 10/8.  Fans will have the opportunity to experience WILD ONES, that Taste of Countrydeems is “tailored for his live show and the thousands of die-hard fans that pack theaters several times each week to see him,” firsthand.

  • KIP MOORE HAS SPECIAL PLANS FOR LABOR DAY.

    Kip Moore has special plans on Labor Day (September 7th) this year. He will headline the Labor of Love Music Festival in Racine, Wisconsin. Funds raised from the event, hosted by CASE Construction Equipment, will go toward the Wounded Warrior Project, which concentrates on programs to help veterans with the physical and emotional issues of life after combat, including assisting those needing jobs. This event will focus on the importance of hiring veterans into skilled jobs in the manufacturing and construction industries.

    The Georgia native says he wanted to perform at the event, because it helps bring awareness to the fact that some veterans have difficulty in finding a job, and he tells us how we can offer support.

    “Just open your eyes, just look at how these people go and take care of us and they serve, they serve for so many years, whether it’s disabilities, whether it’s coming back and jobs are taken, we need to make special exceptions for these people taking care of us and we need to somehow make opportunities,” says Kip. “If they’re not there, we need to make ‘em for these people coming back, because I can’t imagine what it’s like being back in the regular society. You can’t get anything going, and you’re already struggling with all of the mental stuff you had to deal with over there fighting or just simply serving.”

    Kip, who is climbing the charts with his single “I’m to Blame,” recently announced his 2015 Wild Ones Tour, kicking off October 8th in Bethlehem, Pennsylvania.

    Audio / Kip Moore explains why he wanted to perform on Labor Day this year.

    “I’m affiliated with CASE, and CASE is very affiliated with Veterans and other different kind of blue collar things, and that’s why I’m with that company. But, I mean, just open your eyes, just look at how these people go and take care of us and they serve, they serve for so many years, whether it’s disabilities, whether it’s coming back and jobs are taken, we need to make special exceptions for these people taking care of us and we need to somehow make opportunities. If they’re not there, we need to make ‘em for these people coming back, because I can’t imagine what it’s like being back in the regular society. You can’t get anything going, and you’re already struggling with all of the mental stuff you had to deal with over there fighting or just simply serving. So, yeah, it’s a thing I want to be a part of.”

  • KIP MOORE SAYS HE’S ‘TO BLAME.’

    Kip Moore is climbing the country charts with his latest single, “I’m to Blame,” and he said the song originated after he had been watching TV.

    “I’d been listening to the night before to some people on TV, there was some stuff going on politically, and everybody’s throwing everybody under the bus. No one wants to shield any of the blame. I’ve never been that guy, man,” says Kip. “I kinda came in like just that day just kinda angry about all that. Just feeling like we’re all losing our spine. Where have the men gone kinda thing that day.”

    “My thing is I’m not looking for the wrong road, but I’ve always been kinda fearless in my approach. I’m not scared to step out and try something, and there’s a good chance that I’m gonna take the wrong step first, but that’ll lead me to the right step, and that’s kinda what I meant,” he continues. “I’m not gonna intentionally do things to mess up, but when I do, I’m not gonna try to put it off on somebody else. I’ll be the first to say, ‘Look I did it. Let’s move on from this. I’m sorry about it.’ So, that’s kinda how the whole concept of it started.”

    “I’m to Blame” is included on his new album, Wild Ones.

  • KIP MOORE’S NEW ALBUM, WILD ONES, IS NOW AVAILABLE.

    Nashville, TN – Aug 21, 2015 – MULTI PLATINUM Singer/ Songwriter Kip Moore’s highly anticipated sophomore album WILD ONES is available today (8/21.) Moore will kick off next week with a live performance on ABC’s Good Morning America on Tuesday, August 25th.
    Ahead of its release today, WILD ONES is already an established critic’s pick for 2015.
    “The album consistently serves up clever roots-rock riffs and rhythms that separate Moore from the rock-meets-rap focus of his Nashville peers” – Associated Press
    “Tip[s] his signature ball cap to traditional country, but as a whole it’s bigger and blessedly, Wild Ones is louder.”– Entertainment Weekly 
     “One heck of an album… set to produce hit after hit after hit” – Huffington Post 
    “With raspy, echoing vocals and songs … Moore pays homage to the troublemaking days that built him” – Paste
    “A record that’s inspired as much by Bruce Springsteen and Ray Charles as Willie Nelson, and showcases loud whirls of guitar and distinct, boogie baselines” – Rolling Stone
    “Kip Moore’s Wild Ones is a commanding album“ – Taste Of Country 
    “Moore avoids the mold of the Nashville machine” – Village Voice 
    Moore will continue the week proceeding with his “Comeback Kid Skatepark Project” visiting skateparks in Annapolis, MD (8/26) and San Marcos, TX (8/28) as part of the charitable initiative overseeing the construction of a series of skateparks to benefit communities and “comeback kids.”
    The highly anticipated WILD ONES follows Moore’s debut album “UP ALL NIGHT” which spawned three No. One hits including “Hey Pretty Girl,” “Beer Money” and “Somethin’ ‘Bout A Truck.” With Chicago Sun Times heralding Moore’s live show as “carving his own niche in country music…that sets him apart from the flock of country music rockers,” Moore also recently announced his headlining 2015 WILD ONES TOUR kicking off 10/8.  For a full list of tour dates and more information visit www.kipmoore.net.

    Kip Moore (differences between 2 records) OC: …finished. 1:13
    “The first record, my only record, Up All Night, was a very, most all of those songs were written before I had a record deal. It was every day I’d go in at 9 o’clock in the morning, I’d write two songs a day, and I’d leave at six. It was a very regimented process. I was a machine. I’m gonna write something – it was that kind of thing. Wild Ones, which is the title of the new record, is one of the most difficult and elating things all in one. It was painful, for many reasons, for some of the things that I touched on in the record that I was going through, and for the simple fact of how long it’s been between this record about to come out and the first one. The songs were written in such a different manner for this record than the first. They were sporadically all over the place where in the last two years mainly when I started focusing on this record because I thought the record was going to be released a year ago. So, a year before that, I was focusing on it, and it kinda morphed into one thing the first time around, because that’s where I was at that time in my life, and it’s morphed into a whole ‘nother thing for this, you know, what it actually has become. So, I would say it’s been a two year span of agony for me trying to get this thing finished.”

We want to continue growing as a band, and I hope this record achieves what I have in my mind. I like to keep those things in my mind. I don’t like to say them out loud, but I hope this record does what I have in my mind thinking that it can do.”

Fans can preorder the album here.
    “My favorite part of this crazy life we have is playing live,” said Moore. “We’ve been playing so many of these new songs in the live show because we road-tested them night after night before recording what became the final album.   They were a huge part in helping me formulate what WILD ONES became…we are a tribe.   I’m excited to get back out there and headline and put a show together that is all about them.”
    Moore will perform his current single “I’m To Blame” on tomorrow night’s broadcast of  “CMA Music Festival: Country’s Night To Rock” at 8.00pm ET on ABC.

  • KIP MOORE SET TO PERFORM SPECIAL CONCERT FOR NASCAR FANS ON SUNDAY (JULY 5TH).

    Nashville, TN – July 2, 2015 – MULTI-PLATINUM singer/songwriter Kip Moore is set to perform a special concert for fans on Sunday, July 5 at Daytona International Speedway as part of the 57th Annual Coke Zero 400 Powered By Coca-Cola NASCAR Sprint Cup Series race.  Moore will perform his current chart climbing single, “I’m To Blame” live on NBCSN as part of the pre-race festivities.

    Currently making stops across the country with Dierks Bentley’s 2015 Sounds Of Summer Tour and hitting some of the country’s biggest summer festivals along the way, Moore continues to make an impression on critics with Milwaukee Journal Sentinel calling out “with drinks hoisted and most of the songs loudly sung along by the fans on the bleachers, this was a party at the core” and Village Voice deeming him “the definition of laid-back country cool.”

    Moore’s sophomore album, WILD ONES, is set to be released on Aug. 21.  A super-sized record inspired by the grit, grind and glamour of the live shows, each track on WILD ONES was written by Moore and follows his debut album, UP ALL NIGHT, which spawned three No. One multi-platinum selling smash hits.  His current single “I’m To Blame,” is steadily climbing the charts and was the second most added song during its debut week at country radio, marking Moore’s biggest first week for a new single.

  • KIP MOORE SAYS THERE’S NOT A WAY TO KEEP COOL WHEN PERFORMING OUTDOORS.

    Kip Moore is about to head out on the road on the Sounds of Summer Tour with Dierks Bentley, Canaan Smith and Maddie & Tae. As the title may indicate, they’re going to be playing mostly outdoor amphitheaters, where temperatures will certainly soar throughout the day.

    Kip says there’s really not a way to keep cool during those amphitheater shows. “I don’t know if there’s anything you can [do], I know that everybody’s gonna say, ‘Aw, take a drink,’ or whatever. There’s no possible way in those sheds when that sun is beating down that there’s any way to stay cool,” he says. “It’s all about just laying it all out. You got time to cool out after. But while you’re on, there’s nothing you can do about it.”

    Kip is making his way up the country charts with his latest single, “I’m to Blame,” which is from his forthcoming album, Wild Ones, which is set for release August 21st.

  • KIP MOORE ANNOUNCES PLANS FOR HIS COMEBACK KID SKATEPARK PROJECT.

    Nashville, TN – June 3, 2015 – MULTI-PLATINUM artist Kip Moore announced plans for his “Comeback Kid Skatepark Project,” a charitable initiative that will oversee the construction of a series of skateparks to benefit communities and “comeback kids.”  At a press conference today, Moore along with Mayor Karl Dean and Salemtown Board Co, revealed the phase one cities of the project including Nashville, TN; Boston, MA; San Marcos, TX; and Annapolis, MD.  The inspiration for the name of the project comes from “Comeback Kid,” a personal anthem from Moore’s upcoming album WILD ONES.

    “What started off as a pipe dream of mine years ago, has truly become a passion project,” said Moore. “It came from me wanting to give kids in inner cities a safe outlet, where they can form the bonds I know can be made from having somewhere awesome to go and be a part of something they enjoy. I wrote the song ‘Comeback Kid’ at a time when I felt like a comeback kid, but now when I sing it I think less about myself and more about the kids we are doing this for and how much I admire and respect them.  We’re starting with these four cities, but the plan is to keep growing this as far and wide as we can.”

    Each park will have a unique design to provide the perfect first step for anyone of any age to learn how to skate. Making the most of the size and space available, most skate spots will range from 1,500 to 3,000 square feet and will include elements such as quarter pipe, bank-to-curb, hubba ledges, hand rail and step up.  Most of the phase one skateparks will be up and running by this Fall.

    The “Comback Kid Skatepark Project” is the first initiative of “Kip’s Kids Fund,” a donor-advised fund through The Community Foundation of Middle Tennessee (CFMT) focused on youth and teens.  As an avid rock climber, surfer, skateboarder and outdoor enthusiast, Moore has been drawn to the outdoors and alternative sports for much of his life.  He also has a heart for small town and inner city kids growing up with too few options.  As a result, the “Kip’s Kid Fund” provides alternative outlets for youth to engage in healthy habits and physical activities like skateboarding, in addition to the traditional sports offerings where they live.

    Moore’s sophomore album, WILD ONES, is set to be released on Aug. 21.  A super-sized record inspired by the grit, grind and glamour of the live shows, each track on WILD ONES was written by Moore and follows his debut album, UP ALL NIGHT, which spawned three No. One multi-platinum selling smash hits.  His current single “I’m To Blame,” is steadily climbing the charts and was the second most added song during its debut week at country radio, marking Moore’s biggest first week for a new single.  Earning critical acclaim for his “high energy” (Rolling Stone) live show with Chicago Sun Times heralding him as “carving his own niche in country music,” Moore will head out on the road for Dierks Bentley’s 2015 Sounds Of Summer Tour, which kicks off this weekend in Raleigh, NC on 6/5.

    Kip Moore (Comeback Kid) OC: …provide here. :22
    “The name of the project comes from a song that I wrote called ‘The Comeback Kid,’ which is going to be on the new record. I’ve always kinda felt like the underdog in my life. I’ve always had to scratch and claw for every single inch that I feel like I’ve ever gotten in this world, and I feel like it represents and embodies what these kids are all about. They’re fighters, and sometimes you need a little help in that fight, and that’s what I hope we can provide here.”

  • KIP MOORE’S NEW ALBUM, WILD ONES, IS SET FOR RELEASE IN AUGUST.

    Kip Moore‘s highly anticipated sophomore album on MCA Nashville, WILD ONES, is set for release August 21st. Fans can pre-order the album with an exclusive merch package here.

    WILD ONES really encompasses everything I’ve been through out on the road since the first album, it embodies us as a band every night out on stage, it alludes to the traveling circus it sometimes feels like we are a part of,” said Moore. “I’m so glad that I’m able to finally let the fans know when to expect what we’ve been working on so passionately for the past couple years, to let them know the wait is nearly over.”

    Each song on the 13-track disc was born on the road during soundchecks, inside backstage dressing rooms and in Moore’s bunk at night, and recorded during “time off” from playing more than 200 shows a year.

    Driven forward by electric guitars and gang vocals, “Lipstick” is the album’s most heartfelt tribute to the road, with each verse rattling off a list of the favorite cities Moore and his bandmates have played in the past. Other songs, like “That Was Us,” take a look backward, sketching a picture of the archetypal small-town Saturday nights that filled Moore’s teenage years in Georgia. “Magic,” anchored by one of the anthemic, open-armed choruses of Moore’s career, is loud and lovely, and “Comeback Kid” packs its punch the opposite way: by dialing back the volume and delivering quiet praise to the underdog in all of us.  The new album also features the playful lead single, “I’m To Blame,” which is climbing the country radio charts now.

    “I’m truly hoping that people just simply love the project that I’ve worked so hard on,” says a heartfelt Kip. “I hope that people take the time to actually listen to this record as a whole, as a whole body of work and appreciate what we’ve done as a band, and I hope that it puts us to the next level.”

  • KIP MOORE RELEASES THE VIDEO FOR HIS LATEST SINGLE, ‘I’M TO BLAME.’

    Nashville, TN – April 7, 2015 – MULTI-PLATINUM selling artist Kip Moore completely disrupts a throwback style wedding, and does it with a smile, in the raucous new music video for his anthemic single “I’m To Blame,” premiering on VEVO today.  The video for the lead single of Moore’s upcoming sophomore album was directed by Peter Zavadil, with Moore coming up with the concept himself.

    “I was picturing those terrible powder blue old school tuxedos,” said Moore. “The idea started there and we really wanted to have some fun with it, I try not to take myself too seriously all the time!   This song is the beginning of new music from me and I have been so excited to get it out there for everyone to hear.  We’ll be playing a lot of new stuff on the road this summer.  My band probably hates me because I change up the set list so much.  I love sharing as much new music as possible with the fans who have been coming to see me play year after year.  It’s a great way to test out songs too because you’ll find out right away if something is working or not, they aren’t shy about letting you know! ”

    To watch the video click here.

    “I’m To Blame,” the lead single from Moore’s upcoming sophomore album, is steadily climbing the radio charts and has already become a fan favorite during Moore’s live shows. Currently gearing up to head out on the road on Dierks Bentley’s 2015 Sounds Of Summer Tour,  the singer-songwriter has earned critical acclaim for his “high energy” (Rolling Stone) live show with Chicago Sun Times heralding him as “carving his own niche in country music…that sets him apart from the flock of country music rockers.”  Named American Country Countdown Award’s “Breakthrough Artist Of The Year,” Moore earned PLATINUM certification for his No. One smash hit “Hey Pretty Girl,” and DOUBLE PLATINUM status for his chart-topping breakout hit “Somethin’ ‘Bout A Truck.”  For the latest updates, visit www.kipmoore.net.

  • KIP MOORE’S ‘I’M TO BLAME’ SETS THE TONE FOR FORTHCOMING ALBUM.

    Kip Moore’s latest single, “I’m to Blame,” is setting the tone for his forthcoming album, due out later this year. Kip co-wrote the gritty tune with Westin Davis and Justin Weaver, and he says it is the product of his growth as a writer and an artist.

    “I just think it sets the tone for not afraid to go to different places as an artist, as a writer,” says Kip. “A lot of times when things are successful, people want you to stay in one spot. They’re used to you doing one kind of thing. ‘You’ve got to keep doing this thing over and over.’ It’s like, ‘Nah.’ You grow as a person; you grow as an artist. That was what kind of sparked the whole idea was my growth as a writer and as an artist.”

    Kip joins Dierks Bentley on the Sounds of Summer Tour, which kicks off June 5th in Raleigh, North Carolina. The trek will also feature Canaan Smith and Maddie & Tae.

  • KIP MOORE IS UNAPOLOGETIC ABOUT BEING ‘TO BLAME.’

    Kip Moore has just released his new single, “I’m to Blame,” which he wrote with Justin Weaver and Westin Davis. With the new song, he’s owning who he is and he’s not apologizing for it.

    “Today in such a politically correct society, we really wanted to write a song about not apologizing about who we are and not scared to speak our mind kind of people, and we wanted to write a song around that whole kind of thing,” says Kip. “And that’s what it is – it’s a very aggressive, intense, no apologies kind of song about the kind of person you are, and it’s not about being rude. You’re owning who you are as an individual, and that’s what the song is.”

    Kip is nominated for ACM Best New Artist. Fan voting is open now through Feb. 10 at voteacm.com and VoteACM.CMT.com.

  • KIP MOORE RELEASES HIS LATEST SINGLE ‘I’M TO BLAME.’

    Kip Moore doesn’t mind admitting when he’s wrong and the ACM “New Artist of the Year” nominee proves just that with his lead single “I’m To Blame.”  The song is available at digital retailers now and is the second most added song this week at country radio, marking Moore’s biggest first week for a new single.  The song features Moore’s signature raspy voice over a driving back beat highlighted with a rolling banjo.  Moore wrote the song with Justin Weaver and Westin Davis, and the refreshingly honest lyrics are personal for the multi-platinum selling artist.
    “I’ve learned that sometimes when you’re in a relationship, especially if you’re trying to keep the relationship, it’s better just to admit that something was your fault so everybody can move on,” said Moore.  “I thought that sort of truth-telling was a good way to set the tone for the new album.  I’m excited about the new path we’re taking for this next record.   I have written so many songs over the past two years, and I really had to step back and look at all of them and make some hard decisions about what would make the album and what would get cut.  It has turned out to be a totally different record than the one I set out recording, and I think a better one.”
    The MCA Nashville singer/songwriter capped off last year by winning “Breakthrough Artist Of The Year” at the American Country Countdown Awards on FOX and notched two PLATINUM certifications with “Hey Pretty Girl” selling over 1 million and “Somethin’ ‘Bout A Truck” earning DOUBLE PLATINUM status.  Moore’s sold-out headlining CMT ON TOUR: UP IN SMOKE garnered high praise for his “high energy set” (Rolling Stone) with Minneapolis Tribune declaring him a “country music contender” and Chicago Sun Times noting he is “carving his own niche in country music.”  This summer, Moore will hit the road with Dierks Bentley for his 2015 Sounds of Summer Tour.  He is currently nominated for “New Artist of the Year” at this year’s ACM Awards, fan voting is open now through Feb. 10 at voteacm.com and VoteACM.CMT.com. Moore’s sophomore album will be released later this year.
  • KIP MOORE IS TO ‘BLAME,’ AS HE TAKES REVENGE ON DIERKS BENTLEY.

    If you happen to pull up beside Dierks Bentley driving his beloved Big White truck, you may want to plug your nose! It may just smell like a barnyard animal, and Kip Moore would be to “Blame.” You see, Kip plotted and conspired and retaliated against Dierks for making him participate – along with Sounds of Summer tourmates Canaan Smith and Maddie & Tae — in his annual Polar Plunge when they jumped into Nashville’s freezing cold Percy Priest Lake earlier in January.

    While Kip was on the road in Montana on his own headlining tour, he had his team fill Dierks’ truck with packing foam peanuts, wrap it in plastic wrap and cover with graffiti and putting a live goat in the bed of the truck, which was filled with hay while the “Say You Do” singer was at a writing appointment.

    “We were thinking about some cool things we could do around the new song, and since Dierks enjoyed watching us jump in the freezing cold lake so much, he immediately came to mind as my first target,” Kip tells Rolling Stone Country.  “The tour hasn’t even started yet, so it could be a long summer but seeing that goat in the back of Big White was worth it.”

    Dierks vows that the first month of the tour, which kicks off June 5th in Raleigh, North Carolina, will be pretty rough for Kip, even threatening his favorite surf board.

    The video showing Kip’s revenge premiered exclusively on Rolling Stone Country Thursday (January 29th).

    Kip, who just released his new single, the aptly titled “I’m to Blame,” is up for the ACM Best New Artist Award, alongside Sam Hunt, Brett Eldredge, Tyler Farr, Thomas Rhett, Cole Swindell, Chase Rice and Dan + Shay. You can vote for the award at VoteACM.com and VoteACM.CMT.com.

    Kip Moore enjoys watching pro football games. With the loss Denver Broncos – and Peyton Manning – suffered at the hands of the Indianapolis Colts in last weekend’s playoffs, Kip’s attention is diverted to just one player – the Seattle Seahawks’ controversial running back Marshawn Lynch (#24).

    “I’m a huge fan of Marshawn Lynch. I know that he gets so much flak for how he’s so bad with the media, but there’s no one in the NFL that plays harder than Marshawn Lynch. I respect watching that so, so much,” says Kip. “I have a feeling that Marshawn Lynch might run his way to another Super Bowl.”

  • KIP MOORE’S MUSIC TAKES ON A HELPFUL NOTE.

    As we all know, music makes an impact on folks, a lot bigger impact than the artists who create them even realize. When Kip Moore was headlining his CMT Up in Smoke Tour, he was approached by a fan, telling the singer-songwriter his music helped him during a very dark and turbulent time.

    “I had a Marine come up to me after one of the shows and tell me my Up All Night record actually was the only thing that gave him peace as he was camped out in some really rough place where they’d been under fire for a while, and he had his headphones in at this little place they were hiding out, and that record was what gave him peace,” says Kip. “It’s a wild thing to know that my thoughts and pen to paper and those dark places that I wrote those songs – not knowing if anyone was going to hear them – can have that kind of impact on somebody’s life.”

    Kip’s new single, “I’m to Blame,” is being shipped to radio on Monday (official ADD date is February 2nd).

  • CHRISTMAS 2014: KIP MOORE (AUDIO)

    Kip Moore and his brothers would go on fishing trips with their dad around Christmas before the elder Moore passed away a couple of years ago, and it was always one of his favorite traditions. Another one of his favorite traditions was watching movies with his family on Christmas Eve.

    “The night before Christmas, we would rent a bunch of movies,” says Kip. “My dad would take us to the store, the video store and we would rent a bunch of movies and we’d watch them all through the night. That was always a thing that we’d look forward to was all hanging out together and laugh until 3 or 4 or 5 in the morning, then waking up two hours later for the presents.”

    The Georgia native will launch 2015 with more headlining dates kicking off January 27th in Missoula, Montana. In the meantime, he’s nominated for Breakthrough Artist of the Year at the inaugural ACC Awards, airing live at 8pm ET on FOX.

[laughs] But, I hope, there comes a time for that when I can, you know, I think all of the video stores will be gone by then, so I guess that’ll be a Netflix night, but hopefully I can do that kind of stuff. I really miss it bad going on the fishing trips. I grew up going on tons of fishing trips with my dad and brothers, and usually the holidays were a time to get to do that again, and I hope I can be half as awesome as my dad was with us, and knowing how much he worked taking the time to take us on those fishing trips. I hope I can get the chance to do that with, I might even include my future wife on the fishing trips.” [laughs heartily]
