    Adam Hambrick (Father’s Day-Dad)  OC: …about my dad. :45
    “When I was a kid, my dad always included me on what he was doing. I feel like I learned a lot from watching go about life and watching him treat people well and with kindness. My dad is a pastor and I watched, my whole growing up, I just watched him serve other people, like put other people’s needs in front of himself and show up in the hospital when Sister Jeanette had surgery or whatever that thing was like any given day, it could be anything. I watched him tile floors in a new Sunday School building. I watched him do literally everything for a ton of different people in a really selfless way. That’s one of the things I admire most about my dad.”

    AJ (parenting style) OC: …what they did.  :19
    “We try to be just not pushy hands-on parents. We let them live and be their own way. I’m not stern with them. You know, I’m funny and light, and try to give them guidance and let them live and learn their own ways. And that’s something, I think, my parents did. It was accidental, but that’s what they did.”

    Audio / Brandon Lay celebrated his first Father’s Day last year with his then nine-month-old son, Ryder. His wife Nicole gave birth to their second child, daughter Lara June, nearly two weeks ago. Brandon explains some of his favorite moments as a dad.

    Brandon Lay (Father’s Day 2020) OC: …to experience. :21
    “Honestly, the best thing about fatherhood is just someone that looks up to you. My favorite moments are when (Ryder) is scared and I’m there or he wants to figure out something and I’m there, or he needs lifting up and I’m there. I think that’s a God-given gratification that’s really cool to experience.”

    Audio / Brandon Lay is now a father of two since his wife gave birth to their second child, Lara June, last week.

    Brandon Lay (father of two) OC: …embrace. :26
    “Oh man! Now that I’m a father of two, it’s really it goes from more than just keeping one little guy alive and still having more me and Nicole time to wow, I’m actually a father. We’ve got a party of four now, not that I wasn’t before a father, but you know what I mean. I’m reaching real dad status. It’s a weird feeling, but it’s one I embrace.”

    Audio / Brothers Osborne grew up in a musical family – both their parents wrote and performed music. Their father listened to a bunch of different artists which gave them their own foundation.

    Brothers Osborne (Dad’s music) OC: (John) …anything else. :34
    “Our dad listened to everything from Hank Williams to Willie Nelson to even pop music like Mariah Carey and Tom Petty to Bob Seger. You name it and he listened to it, so we really didn’t think about specific genres. We really just kind of soaked it all in, so we listened to it all at one time. It was just music to us. Th ere wasn’t a day in our house without the radio on or there wasn’t a weekend at our house that there wasn’t a party and people had their guitars out, so music to us is like eating and breathing. It’s just as essential as anything else.”

    Audio / Caylee Hammack says her father is a good man.

    Download

    Caylee Hammack (Dad) OC: …forget that. 1:19
    “My dad has this really unnerving ability to be able to build anything at all just by thinking of it. He can look at something and build it in his mind and build it by hand, and it always works. I’ve always respected him for that. He’s a very hard worker.  He’s worked every day of his life. He’s also kind, even when he doesn’t have to be. He’s the type of guy who always gives money at the light to whoever it is on the street. One of my favorite moments with my dad was when we were driving to Macon, Georgia. I was playing a show that night, and we were driving up and we saw this dog and I could tell she was a mama dog. I could tell she had babies somewhere that she was trying to nurse, and she was so skinny. And I’m a bleeding heart. I get it from my Mama, and I just start crying, and I’m like, ‘That poor dog. She’s starving trying to feed her babies.’ I thought, ‘Poor dog.” And my dad doesn’t say anything, goes up two more blocks and pulls into the McDonalds. And he goes through and he asks me if I wanted anything, and I say no. I just think he’s hungry. He goes and he buys three or four burgers, and then he goes back to that block and he drives around until we find that dog to feed it to ‘em. I just remember looking at him, being like this is what a man is; this is what a good man does, and I’ll never forget that.”

    Darius Rucker (Father’s Day) OC: …loving dad. :41
    “I think if you asked my kids what kind of Dad I was they would probably say…Dani would say that I was a fun Dad. My little daughter would say that I was a fun dad; she thinks I’m a lot of fun. I think if you caught them at the right moment they would say I was mean [laughs] because when I’m home I’m not afraid to discipline them. I’m all fun until it’s not fun anymore and then daddy’s not the fun guy. I think that they’d say that I was a fun Dad, I’m a loving Dad and I think they would say that. I’m gone so much that when I’m home, I just shower love upon my kids. I say ‘I love you’ probably fifty times a day. We hug, we kiss all the time. I’m always wanting them to know how much I love them. So I’d hope they’d say that I was a loving dad.”

    Audio / DARIUS RUCKER SAYS HIS MOTHER MADE HIM A GOOD FATHER TO HIS THREE CHILDREN.

    Darius Rucker (mother’s qualities makes him a great father) OC: …my mom. :45
    “She had a lot great qualities, but she was always, family was first for her. She was always a rock and making sure she took care of us and making sure we had things we needed to have to survive – food and clothes and a home – and seeing that and seeing how hard she worked and all the things she did just really made me the father that I am today. I mean, I’m so crazy and hands-on with my kids. I think it all comes from watching my mom have to struggle so much to support us. And so now, I don’t want me or my wife to ever have to struggle, and I don’t want my kids to ever want or wonder where I am or where there mom is. I want them to always know where we are and always be taken care of, and that all comes from my mom.”

I’m gonna tell you how I feel whether you like it or not. I’m that guy, I’m me…My dad’s that way, so I get a lot of that from him. There’s also an honesty and an integrity that my dad carries himself with that I’ve always admired. I think the both of them combined, and they’ve been married for I think 40 years, to be together that long in this day and time is a feat in itself.”

From taking me to every single football practice to being a coach in baseball and stuff to even when I couldn’t play sports anymore and I started doing music and traveling the country and he helped me by renting this family RV. Me and the boys would hop in. He drove us everywhere. He would like take us all over the country. He was taking off work every single week just so I could have a chance, a shot at tis dream. He’s the most selfless, humble human being ever, and if I’m half the man he is one day, then that’d be fine with me. He’s a great guy.”

    Jordan Davis (fatherhood 2020) OC: …here myself. :46
    “Fatherhood is something, it really is tough to put into words, but one of my favorite things to do is to go in and get Eloise up in the mornings, and I just see this little bundle of joy. She is just so happy. She’s got a smile just like Kristen, and so it really is just crazy to go in in the morning. She could be crying, screaming and then you walk in, and the second she sees you, it’s all smiles and laughs. I don’t know. I think the coolest thing with a kid like her age is just the innocence. You see just how happy she is to be here, and I’m very happy she’s here myself.”

    Audio / JORDAN DAVIS TALKS ABOUT HIS FAVORITE QUALITIES OF HIS DAD.

    Jordan Davis (Father’s Day) OC: …my music. :45
    “The thing I love most about my Dad is just his overall love of life. He’s a guy that’s worked hard and is now at a point where he can enjoy it, and he’s living every day to the fullest. That’s something that I’m very thankful that I’ve seen my Dad do and something to learn from. So, that’s probably my favorite quality about the old man, and just the hard work too. My dad ran a furniture business in Shreveport for a long time with his Dad. It was great to grow up and see a guy work hard and helped his Dad build a business from the ground up to a very successful business, and that’s something that I even try to carry over into my music.”

    Jordan Davis (how life changed when he became a dad) OC: …my daughter. :43
    “I asked so many questions to Dads about what to expect and how my life was gonna change. I never really got a straight answer. It was just kinda like, ‘Dude, just do it and it’s gonna change for the better.’ It really is the most unbelievable, just the amount of love you have for this thing that just got into the world, it is indescribable. I can’t put that into words the first time you get a chance to hold your kid. And man, I’m very, very grateful for the blessing that is my daughter.”

    Audio / PROUD DAD OF FOUR (HAMPTON, COLBY, MARION, HAWKE), JOSH TURNER TALKS ABOUT HOW HIS THREE OLDEST SONS ARE LEARNING THE FAMILY TRADE.

    Download

    Josh Turner (Father’s Day) OC: …one of ‘em.  1:05
    “As far as talent and potential, my oldest three, especially, they could do anything they wanted to do if they put their mind to it and their heart was there. My oldest [Hampton] is incredible at playing mandolin. Colby, we kind of noticed him turn the corner lately with the fiddle, and Marion is actually playing a ukulele that’s tuned like the top four strings on a guitar, so in essence, he’s learning how to play guitar. They’ve just kind of started incorporating some singing into some playing, so they’re starting the whole singing and playing at the same time kind of thing, and not only that, they’re even learning to play songs together on their individual instruments. So, it’s amazing to see how much they can learn in such a short amount of time. It makes me realize how much I missed out on when I was that age, ‘cause I did take some music lessons growing up and everything, but I think they feed off of each other honestly. I think that’s why they’re getting so good is because they’re all doing it, not just one of ‘em.”

    Audio / Keith Urban – father to daughters Sunday and Faith -- says there are a number of things that are at the top of the list of being a dad.

    Keith Urban (Father’s Day) OC: …experience that. :36
    “The first thing is probably just having someone call you dad. I’m like, ‘Omigosh! I’m her dad! That’s amazing.’ That’s probably the first thing to me. I don’t know, I mean, the different personalities that our two daughters have, that’s amazing. It’s such a long list I think. I always say…I think for the people that haven’t had kids – which I hadn’t for a long, long time. I didn’t have kids ‘til later on, and being around it is not the same as having them, you know? I realize that it’s not something that can be explained until you actually sort of have it, so I’m glad I got to experience that.”

    Audio / Kip Moore talks about his late father’s influence on his music career, and how he’d play classics on their fishing trips.

    Download

    Kip Moore (Father’s Day-dad’s influence) OC: …of us singin’ ‘em. :29
    “He would just play all those classic records – Little River Band, Jackson Brown, Springsteen, Seeger, Willie Nelson, the Red-Headed Stranger, Kristofferson, Sam Cook – like classic music. He’d be singing the songs and telling us why it was such good music. And I looked up to him so much, that’s the music I gravitated towards and that’s what I continue to listen to. Whenever I think about those old fishing trips, that’s what I think about is on the way down there, him singing those songs and all of us singin’ ‘em.”

    “It’s still such a new experience for us, and man, I’m telling you, people can tell you all day long how great it’s going to be, but it still never touches it. That little man looking back at me, it’s the most unbelievable feeling. And every day, for me who hates mornings [laughs], waking up to a slap in the face; he’s like pounding on me, then he’s like kissing on me and stuff. It’s unbelievable. It’s absolutely beautiful.”

    Audio / Luke Bryan talks about the life lessons he learned from his father.

    Download

    Luke Bryan (Father’s Day-life lessons) OC: …live by that. :46
    “Well, my dad was, I always just go back to the life lessons that always started either in a fishing boat or hunting somewhere, and that’s why I’ve always kind of been a champion of those types of behaviors certainly with your boys and your children because you get to spend time and hand down values. My dad was always big on just hard work and being good to people and a handshake is the contract. A handshake is your bond, your word. His famous saying always was, ‘Do something right the first time and you won’t have to go back and do it over again.’ I won’t say I batted a thousand perfectly on that, but I’ve kind of tried to live by that.”

It looks horrible. It’s not put together, but that’s one of his favorite gifts that he’s ever gotten, and I cherish that ugly photo book thing that I made for him for Father’s Day.”

He’s just taught me so much about being a man, doing the right thing, knowing the difference between right and wrong. And even though I don’t always follow his lead, I definitely know better because of him, and that means a whole lot to me. I was just really fortunate to have him as a dad, and he’s great.”

    Travis Denning (Father’s Day) OC: …for sure. :43
    “My dad – I call him ‘Diamond Dave’ and a lot of other people do too. Honestly, I don’t know if I drink more with anybody else more than my Dad. I think a super cool thing now is getting older and knowing that I’m starting to get more and more sustained as a human that it’s like my parents get to be friends now with me and my sister, which is such a cool thing. And so, yeah, me and my Dad – we love music and we love heavy metal and we love all that. We get to go to concerts and football games and drink beer and just enjoy that cool part of a father and a son and a mother and a son where now we get to be friends and it’s really cool. My Dad is my best friend, for sure.”

    “Kind, hopefully make them kind. It’s all we got. We’ve got five kids, a couple of grandkids. These grandkids are the complete light of my life. They show up and the rest of the world can kiss my youknowwhat (laughs). I say we’re just gonna go swing in the backyard, we’re gonna wrestle on the bed, we’re gonna eat those Goldfish, you know? And nothing else kinda seems to matter. And then I think what I love seeing more than anything is for my kid to finally understand what it means to love. Man, it’s awesome to see my kid finally get it what that unconditional love really looks like and feels like.”

     

  • KIP MOORE’S WILD WORLD HERALDED AS “HIS MOST HONEST MUSIC YET” GARNERING MASS CRITICAL ACCLAIM.

    Kip Moore continues to be revered by critics, with his fourth studio album WILD WORLD garnering overwhelming praise since its release on May 29. Debuting in the Top 5 on Billboard’s Country Chart, Moore co-wrote 12 of the 13 deeply personal tracks on the record including his current Top 25 single “She’s Mine,” as “Moore toys with arena rock arrangements (‘Janie Blu,’ ‘Fire and Flame’), swampy flirtations (‘Grow On You’), and outlaw swagger (‘Southpaw’)” (Esquire) on the acclaimed set. Moore also self-produced the set, with help from David Garcia, Luke Dick and Blair Daly on respective tracks, with the project debuting at No. One on Australia’s ARIA Country Chart, No. One on Canada’s Country Albums Chart and No. Four on The U.K. Country Album Chart.

    “Moore probes growth and honesty with fourth album…Wild World is his manifesto, dropping in a time when we need all the hope we can get.” – American Songwriter 

    “When programmed beats and pop-influenced country is the sound of the moment, Moore’s heartland country-rock songs with his growling voice feel muscular, nostalgic and honest.” – Associated Press

    “One of country’s more thoughtful artists.” – Billboard 

    “Kip Moore is known for prioritizing meaty, vulnerable songwriting in all of his albums. Even by that measure, Wild World is the singer’s most authentic, honest body of work to date.” – Country Now

    “Digging deeper than ever before… his most honest music yet.” – Entertainment Tonight 

    “Especially vital; occasionally, even rare.” – Esquire 

    “A mature yet flesh blend of soaring 80’s heartland and contemporary country depth.” – Classic Rock 

    “An urgent record that showcases Moore’s vulnerabilities with confessional lyrics about love, loss and faith, Wild World serves as a much needed escape.” – Forbes 

    “Moore again turns introspective on his fourth studio album… He mines deeper into topics—seeking love, seeking freedom, seeking peace, making peace with old decisions…but infuses them with fresh intensity.” – Music Row 

    “Wild World is filled with bold signposts about the enigmatic artist, his rebel appetite and his “reckless heart” – PEOPLE 

    “Featuring some of the most dynamic vocal performances of his career, the album does a solid job of matching its philosophical undertones with flat-out enjoyable music, ranging all the way from soft-spoken ballads to barroom-blasting anthems.”  – Sounds Like Nashville

    “There’s always been something about the country veteran’s music that leaves one breathless. On this album, Moore is aware of it and very much uses it to his advantage.” – Taste Of Country 

    “In the album’s 13 tracks, the singer shares love and loss, some life lessons and those bits he hasn’t quite figured out yet, too. It’s affirming and invigorating.” – The Boot 

    To mark the launch of WILD WORLD, Moore also performed a livestream set of songs from the new release on his Facebook and Youtube, with funds raised benefiting MusiCares COVID-19 Relief Fund.  During the livestream Moore raised $136,000 and those donations were matched by Spotify via their COVID-19 Music Relief project totaling over $282,000 raised.

    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 (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.”

  • KIP MOORE’S “WILD WORLD” IS AVAILABLE TODAY.

    Kip Moore’s much-anticipated fourth studio album WILD WORLD is available now. 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.

    Audio / Kip Moore talks about the inspiration behind the music on his new album, Wild World.

    Download

    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.

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. For more information visit kipmoore.net.

    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 SAYS FANS CAN EXPECT HONESTY AND JOY IN HIS NEW RECORD, WILD WORLD.

    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.”

    Since the pandemic began forcing shutdowns in March, he has been hunkered down in East Kentucky, just being quiet and contemplative — writing songs, reading, and exploring the outdoors. Kip has documented some of his quarantine experience and breaks down the recording of his fourth album, Wild World, in the upcoming documentary 7 Days at the Rock, which premieres tonight (May 28th) at 9pm ET/8pm CT on Outside TV. Filmed by Moore’s friend PJ Brown, the documentary is set at the “BedRock,” a lodge that Moore built with another friend, Jeremy Salyers, to accommodate weary hikers and rock climbers at Red River Gorge at budget-friendly prices.

    Audio / Kip Moore explains that fans should expect honesty, freedom, vulnerability and faith in his new album, Wild World.

    His Outside TV “7 Days At The Rock” documentary premieres at 9pm ET on Thursday (May 28th).

     

     

  • 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.”
