  • KIP MOORE IS FRONT AND CENTER.

    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.

Then in NYC, Front & Center is going to be totally different…going to sit down with a few of my songwriter buddies and really strip it all back to the core of the song.

  • 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.

    Kip Moore (Labor Day 2015) OC: …part of. :50
    “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.

  • LABOR DAY 2015: AJ, Billy, Canaan, Darius, David, Dierks, Eric (Church & Paslay), Jon, Kip, Lady A, Luke

    For many decades, Labor Day was seen as a day for workers to voice their complaints and discuss better working conditions and pay.

    U.S. Congress declared Labor Day a national holiday in 1894, and on Monday, September 7th, we will once again celebrate the people in every occupation whose work and dedication make this nation great. Labor Day in the United States is a holiday celebrated on the first Monday in September. It is a celebration of the American labor movement and is dedicated to the social and economic achievements of workers.

    Labor Day weekend also signals the unofficial end to summer, and many of the hottest country stars are taking a look back at some of the toughest jobs they had prior to making their mark in music or their dream job now.

    AUDIO: Alan Jackson says that working man values have always been a part of his music.

    AJ (working people songs) OC: … appreciate that. :28
    “I’ve always written songs and recorded songs, other people’s songs, about workin’ people, and workin’, the workin’ life ’cause I mean, that’s where I’m from. I mean, I worked…I’d already had jobs and worked as a grown person before I ever even thought about bein’ in the music business, so I come from that background, and…although I hadn’t had a job in a long time (laughs), I still remember a lot about it, you know, and I remember what the lifestyle is, and I still appreciate that.”

    Billy Currington recalls some of the jobs he had before landing his record deal in 2003.

    Billy Currington (Labor Day) OC: …record deal. :40
    “I started working like at [age] 12, landscaping. This was summer, every summers, and roofing. I started when I was about 16 roofing houses, and that was probably one of my toughest jobs because down there in south Georgia, it gets hot, so doing that every day all summer long. The pawn shop when I moved to Nashville was one of my favorites, even though it was one of my least favorites. The concrete job was my least favorite of all – six years of that, and I couldn’t take it no more. After that job, that was my turning point. Either I’m going to do something else for a living [laughs] or quit and try to really focus on music and get this record deal.”

    “I’ve had some terrible jobs. I was a janitor for a while, and I mopped floors, vacuums all kinds of, picking up dog poop, taking out trash, just basically somebody’s beyatch [laughs], that was my job. I did that for two-and-a-half years before I signed a publishing deal. Before that, actually my very first job, I got fired from. It was some sort of candy/chocolate store. My mom dropped me off one time, and I went to work and I was like I think I can do this, and then two shifts later I just didn’t show up because I didn’t understand the concept of having to look at a schedule to see when you come in. I just didn’t show. I just thought they’d call me, ‘Hey, we need you to come in.’ I didn’t know. I was 15 years old, and never worked and that kind of stuff. I always cut grass when I was a kid and cleaned golf clubs – whatever I could do to make some money. But, yeah, I got fired from my first job. I’m pretty proud of that.” [laughs]

    “The first job that I ever had was working at Dairy Queen. One of my very best friends in the world’s mother purchased a franchise, so it was kinda a cool place to work. You put me in an ice cream place, it’s a recipe for disaster. So, Kathy Jeffers, her mother tends to tell people it was a ‘mutual separation,’ but I can vividly remember her saying that they were going to lose money if they continued to let me work, because I was eating more food than I was selling. But, it was a great two days that I spent there, and I had many a Dilly Bar.”

I know each one of these like from the road-the signs are from California…Michelle and Kayla live up in the Ohio area. They’re all, I just see them, and I’m like, ‘Wow!,’ they’re all from different regions. You know when you’re in a different region of the country and you just see certain fans. These people are way more hard core than I am, and I’m just amazed by their generosity.”

    Eric Church talks about one of his worst job.

    Eric Church (Labor Day-odd jobs) OC: …bought at 2am. 1:27
    “I had an awful job. I’ve had a lot of awful jobs…my worst one was when I first came to Nashville. I got a job at the Shop at Home Network. I worked midnight, graveyard, midnight to eight. That was bad enough but then I would work all night, go home, shower and then I had writing appointments all day because I was trying to get a career started. I’d go write songs and get meetings just trying to get signed. And end up getting done at 3 of 4 with all of that, I’d go home, take a shower or sleep for a little bit and then I had to be at work again at midnight. So the schedule was bad enough, however, what I had to do at the job…I sold knives from midnight to 7 or 8am. And, anytime somebody calls you at 3 or 4am and needs 200 knives for $19.95, it’s automatically an alarming situation. And I just, I was young and I’d been in a lot of these people’s shoes, I had done this…I knew they were drunk. I knew what they had done. They’d just come home from the bar, flipped on Shop at Home and said, ‘You know what? I need that.’ So the reason the job didn’t last long for me is that I was maybe the worst salesmen in history because I ended up talking a lot of these people out of it, I’d say, ‘I’ll tell you what man, go to bed, call me, I’ll be here in the morning. If you get up in the morning and want these knives you call me back.’ Because I knew what was going to happen, you know. They bought 200 knives for $19.95…first of all some of these people you didn’t know whether you should call the cops. What do you need 200 knives for? Even though I’m selling them…what do you need them for? So, it was awful doing that job. And then they got rid of me because, they were like, ‘You’re the worst. I can’t believe you’re talking people out of it.’ I was like, ‘Man I know…I’ve been there.’ [laughs] I’d want some to talk me out of buying some of the stuff I’ve bought at 2am.”

And it was eye doctors that, some company if you bought supplies through them, they’d put your logo on fanny packs for your customers to put in a drawer somewhere. Fanny packs are cool, if you like ‘em. You know, we’d like time ourselves to see how many fanny packs you could print.”

You got nowhere to clean up, and you’re just stuck with dirt on your back for the rest of the day. It doesn’t get any worse than that.”

I stocked and cleaned up the produce.  They paid me under the table…I peeled off all of the brown lettuce. Let’s see, when I was 15, I was a cashier at K-Mart for two months. I worked at K-Mart for two months, and then I reverted back to Rubos because it didn’t really make sense for me to drive all the way into Albany and work for K-Mart. The benefits were great though-you’d get an hour-long on the blue light special. So I started back at Rubos, and then I quit Rubos and worked for my Dad-just awful just driving tractors through cotton all day, and spraying pesticides that eventually would turn your hair green. And then at some point, I started playing guitar. And well, after college I went back and worked for my dad and continued to spray and haul fertilizer around. And then I moved to Nashville…”

    Kip Moore discusses his new album, Wild Ones, with Robin Roberts on ABC’s Good Morning America.

  • 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.

    Audio / Kip Moore talks about the differences in making his previous album, Up All Night, and his new project, Wild Ones.

    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.”

    Audio / Kip Moore talks about his hopes for the new album, Wild Ones.

    Kip Moore (hopes for new album) OC: …can do. :34
    “I’m truly hoping that people just simply love the project that I’ve worked so hard on. 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. 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.”

    “We had some fun with my fans this weekend, giving them a little teaser of what to expect from the videos, and they freaked,” said Kip Moore. “The videos were a great way for me to express some of my favorite songs off the album, and each one is so unique from the other, that I feel like they really encapsulate the different layers of this record.”

    With Rolling Stone commending WILD ONES’ “unique blend of heartland rock and blue-collar twang” ahead of its release on Aug. 21, Moore’s sophomore album captures the feeling of his live show, ranging from poignant to anthemic. Often heralded for his live show, with Chicago Sun Times recognizing Moore as “carving his own niche in country music…that sets him apart from the flock of country music rockers,” Moore recently announced his headlining 2015 WILD ONES TOUR kicking off 10/8 in Bethlehem, PA.
