• 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.

We are just at home, and we are trying to get out and explore when the weather’s nice enough to do so. We are so lucky that we have some land around us that we get to get outside and get some of our energy out, especially with a five-year-old, for Isaiah, trying to come up with crafts. I’ve been cooking a lot. My house is spotless. [laughs] But just trying to do what I can work-wise as much as I can at home and trying not to worry and praying much like everybody else.”

I do like A Million Little Things when that’s on. It seems like maybe when one of my favorite shows ends, it’s like another one starts back up again. But we watch a lot of murder-mystery type shows, as well.”

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.”

There’s some woods behind the house we can go and walk in, and we’re doing that now after we binged out on Netflix and Youtube, and got some dogs. I’ve got a little bird dog puppy, I’ll get out in the yard, trying to train, so I’ll mess with him a little bit.

And I think it’s very, very important just to give each other a call – call a loved one, call your Mom, call your dad, call anyone, call someone that you haven’t talked to in years. I think it’s very important to stay very connected. Even though we’re physically isolated we don’t have to be spiritually or emotionally isolated from people, so just give people a call and while you’re at it, take a damn shower already.

  • 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)
    4. “Wild World” (Josh Miller, Kip Moore)
    5. “Red White Blue Jean American Dream” (Jimi Bell, Barton Davies, Luke Dick, Philip Lammonds)
    6. “She’s Mine” (Dan Couch, Kip Moore, Scott Stepakoff)
    7. “Hey Old Lover” (Dan Couch, Kip Moore)
    8. “Grow on You” (Blair Daly, Westin Davis, Kip Moore)
    9. “More Than Enough” (David Garcia, Josh Miller, Kip Moore)
    10. “Sweet Virginia” (Kip Moore, Manny Medina, Erich Wigdahl)
    11. “South” (Adam Browder, Dan Couch, Manny Medina, Kip Moore, Dave Nassie, Erich Wigdahl)
    12. “Crazy for You Tonight” (Blair Daly, Westin Davis, Kip Moore)
    13. “Payin’ Hard” (Blair Daly, Westin Davis, Kip Moore)

    Kip is scheduled 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 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.

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.”

  • UPDATED: SEVERAL COUNTRY FAVORITES TALK ABOUT FOOTBALL AND THIS YEAR’S SUPER BOWL.

    This Sunday (February 2nd), millions of people around the world will be tuning in to the Super Bowl (the Big Game), including some of your favorite country artists. Some will be rooting for Patrick Mahomes and the Kansas City Chiefs, while others will be pulling for the Jimmy Garoppolo-led San Francisco 49ers.

    Check out all the action at the Hard Rock Stadium in Miami, Florida on Sunday at 6:30pm ET on FOX.

     

    Audio / Adam Hambrick talks about this year's Super Bowl matchup between Kansas City Chiefs and the San Franscisco 49ers.

    Download

    Adam Hambrick (Super Bowl 2020) OC: …tough to beat. :27
    “I’ve got to say I’m a big fan of Pat (rick) Mahomes. He plays the game at a level of smoothness and a level of finesse that you just don’t see a lot. He roasted the Titans so I feel I’ve just got to go with Pat Mahomes. He’s just hard to beat. He doesn’t even need an offensive line, just create space with his feet — incredibly accurate thrower, incredibly accurate downfield thrower. He’s gonna be tough to beat.”

    Audio / Adam Hambrick talks about his favorite Super Bowl snack.

    Download

    Adam Hambrick (Super Bowl snack) OC: …hit me up. :11
    “One of my favorite party snacks is just give me a big ole bowl of guacamole and some of those Tostito’s hint of lime chips. Go ahead and give me that sponsorship. I’ll be waiting. Hit me up.”

    Audio / Billy Currington says he loves watching football.

    Billy Currington (football fan) OC: …love football. :36
    “I’m a big football fan. I mean, when I was growing up, if you asked me who my favorite team is now, I couldn’t tell you. But when I was a kid, it was the Dallas Cowboys. And I don’t know if it was because my mom bought my brother a Pittsburgh Steelers pennant for some reason, and bought me a Dallas Cowboys pennant, and of course over the year I fell in love with the Cowboys, and then I wanted a jersey the next Christmas, and then the next one, I wanted [more Cowboys stuff]. So, I became a long-term fan with those guys. But I like it all now that I’m older. I’ll watch any game, it doesn’t matter who’s playing. But [I] love football.”

    Audio / Brandon Lay predicts Kansas City will dominate at this year's Super Bowl.

    Download

    Brandon Lay (Super Bowl 2020) OC: …Super Bowl. :14
    “Man, I really don’t have a dog in the fight since the Chiefs took out my Titans, but I just don’t see how the 49ers are gonna score enough points to keep up with what the Chiefs got going on, so that’s my pick for the Super Bowl.”

    Audio / Darius Rucker will headline the NFL’s On Location premium pregame parties prior to Super Bowl LIV in Miami this weekend. Darius is a HUGE football fan, as everyone probably knows by now, and he explains why he loves football so much.

    Darius Rucker (football) OC: …football season. :20
    “Ever since I was five years old, I’ve loved football, and I love how physical it is. I love the chess match of the game. I love the speed of the game. I love college football, but for me watching pro football is better because the speed is so much more. For me, there’s two times a year, man — football season and waiting for football season.”

    Audio / Jon Pardi went to the NFC Championship Game as the San Francisco 49ers beat the Green Bay Packers to go on to the Super. Jon says he's looking forward to seeing a great matchup between two great teams.

    Download

    Jon Pardi (Super Bowl 2020) OC: …two great teams. :52
    “It was really cool to go on the football field when you’ve got everybody from the head guy of the NFL and you’ve got Jerry Rice out there running around. It was really cool, and then we got to go watch the game in a really nice suite and thank you 49ers — they were awesome. It was just really cool, and to see them go to the Super Bowl at Levy Stadium, which is a very nice stadium. It was awesome. I grew up playing football and it was always the 9ers, you know? Like we looked up to those guys. I looked up to the 49ers. It was like our local team, and I guess i just never lost that spark from when they went to the Super Bowl. I think the game’s going to be great. The Chiefs are tough, and the Chiefs is another one…the Chiefs haven’t been in a Super Bowl in a long time either, so this is gonna be an all-out war of football (laughs) which is gonna be a great Super Bowl, and we’re gonna get a great Super Bowl from two great teams.”

    Audio / Since his beloved New Orleans Saints aren't in this year's Big Game, Jordan Davis gives his pick for Sunday's matchup between the Kansas City Chiefs and the San Francisco 49ers.

    Download

    Jordan Davis (Super Bowl 2020) OC: …Super Bowl. :12
    “Hey, it’s Jordan Davis, and I’m pumped for Super Bowl Sunday, and the Saints aren’t in it, so I am going to be cheering for the Kansas City Chiefs. So, let’s go Patrick Mahomes and yeah, go win a Super Bowl.”

    Audio / Keith Urban says his wife, Nicole Kidman, got him interested in football.

    Download

    Lauren Alaina (Super Bowl) OC: …I love it. :30
    “My dad raised me to love football, so I think it’s like kind of in my blood to be obsessed with it. I feel like the guys are so passionate and they try so hard. Those people love playing that game as much as I love singing. I just love the heart and the drive and the passion behind it. I feel like those boys are playing as hard as they can – in college football and pro football – because it’s what they love to do and it’s their passion, and I just, I don’t know. I love it.”

    Audio / LAUREN ALAINA TALKS ABOUT SOME OF HER FAVORITE FOODS THAT SHE’D LOVE TO HAVE DURING SUNDAY’S BIG GAME, BUT THEY’RE ONES SHE’S REALLY TRIED TO CUT OUT SINCE SHE’S GOTTEN HEALTHY.

    Download

    Lauren Alaina (Super Bowl foods she wishes she could eat) OC: …with cheese? (laughs) :30
    “Gosh, let’s see cheese dip. I would really like some cheese dip in my life again. Um, I’m a big fan of wings and hot dogs and pizza and cheesecake and poppers and cheese sticks and cheese, anything that has to do with cheese. Did you realize everything I named besides the wings, which you dip in blue cheese, had to do with cheese?” (laughs)

    Audio / Little Big Town’s Jimi Westbrook and Phillip Sweet are looking forward to watching this year’s matchup between the Kansas City Chiefs and the San Francisco 49ers…even though his team, the Tennessee Titans, were knocked out during the AFC Championship game.

    Download

    LBT (Super Bowl 2020) OC: (Phillip) …win this game. :29
    JIMI: “This game is gonna be fun. Of course, my team is the Tennessee Titans, so I don’t have quite the heart connection that I do with these two teams. (Phillip: “I like Mahomes though.”) But I’m excited because I think it’s gonna be a great game. They match up very interestingly, and I think it’s gonna be fun to watch. I don’t think anybody’s gonna stop Mahomes, though. Shew. The 49er defense, they are for real.” PHILLIP: “If you can pick apart the 49er defense, you can win this game.”

    Audio / Little Big Town’s beautiful and talented Karen Fairchild was a badass growing up when she was playing quarterback for her powder puff football team.

    Download

    LBT (football story) OC: …my lip. :40
    “I was the quarterback to my powder puff team. I was running the ball and I came around the corner – this was in high school – and a foreign exchange student, I think her name was Inga (KIMBERLY: “Inga.”), and I didn’t want to fumble ‘cause my brother and my dad were there, and I come from this very athletic family, so I held onto the ball. I knew I was going to go down, so I let my head hit first and I bit all the way through, but I didn’t fumble and I had a hole in my face, though. The sad thing is that it was just flag football, but I left my flags on and cleats and everything, ‘cause it looked cool, and I had blood running all down my jersey. I went to the emergency room like that, and they sewed up my lip.”

    Audio / Luke Bryan talks about some of the food he likes to have while watching the Super Bowl.

    Download

    Luke Bryan (Super Bowl food) OC: …over again. :22
    “Definitely Super Bowl is like the queso, the Frito Lay scoops with the Ro-tel situation. I guess it’s like, what’s the black-eyed pea stuff too? All of that, just stuff that you can sit there and have lots of sodium, and then just, it’s like Thanksgiving all over again.”

    Audio / Sam Hunt talks about this year's matchup between the Kansas City Chiefs and the San Francisco 49ers.

    Download

    Sam Hunt (Super Bowl 2020) OC: …one for the books, for sure. :35
    “I think it’s gonna be exciting. It’s like the new generation Super Bowl almost. The quarterbacks are great. I really like that Mahomes guy. I mean he represents a whole new era of quarterback. The game has changed a lot over the years, and it is, it’s exciting to see two teams…I like watching great offenses. I like quarterbacks who throw the ball around, score lots of points, and these two teams do that. They’ve got a lot of exciting players. So, I think this one’s gonna be one for the books, for sure.”

    Audio / SAM HUNT LOVES THAT THE SUPER BOWL MIXES HIS TWO LOVES – MUSIC AND FOOTBALL.

    Download

    Sam Hunt (Super Bowl & music) OC: …combined there. :24
    “It’s become such a massive pop culture event, and I love that they’ve incorporated music and entertainment with the sport itself and the entertainment value that comes from that. It encompasses just a strong representation of American culture, and I’m a huge music fan, obviously, and I’m a huge sports fan, so those are two of my favorite worlds combined there.”

    Audio / Brothers Osborne talk about how people spend the last moments of the year, and the first moments of the new year.

    Download

    Brothers Osborne (New Year) OC: (TJ) …next month. :44
    JOHN: “I think it’s kind of funny how we spend literally the last moment and the very first moment of every year being extremely intoxicated, extremely, because you don’t want to wait until like 12:30 to get your buzz on. You’ve got to do it before midnight, and then once midnight happens, you’re like, ‘Omigod! Now it’s time to celebrate even more.’ Debauchery is the literally bookending your entire year.” TJ: “I love how everyone starts the year off with diets and then we end the year with like excessive amounts of food. And then you get to the end of the year, you’re like, ‘Oh, I’m going to start a diet on the 1st, so I’m going to eat everything that’s in front of me.’ I love it.” JOHN: “And come February 1st, ‘what diet?’” [laughs] TJ: “What diet? I’ll start it next month.” [laughs]

    Audio / John Osborne of Brothers Osborne says a little hair of the dog is definitely the cure for a hangover.

    Download

    Brothers Osborne (hangover cure) OC: …of the year. :07
    “Usually drinking more. I mean, a little hair of the dog never hurt anybody. Plus, it’s the first of the year.”

    Audio / Clare Dunn suggests a good hangover cure.

    Download

    Clare Dunn (hangover cure) OC: …hangover cure. :10
    “Greasy food is always kind of a, you can let it go for one day before you start all your resolutions [laughs] after that. So, that’s probably my best hangover cure.”

    Audio / Dierks Bentley says there’s not really a cure for a hangover.

    Download

    Dierks (NYE) OC: …for that. :10
    “I think January first is universally accepted as a dog. So, I mean, a little hair of the dog, I guess. But just…water and stay on the couch, I guess. There’s no real sure-fire cure for that.”

    Audio / Dierks Bentley talks about New Year's Eve.

    Download

    Dierks Bentley (New Year’s) OC: …in stride. 1:07
    “New Year’s is rough. New Year’s hurts no matter what’s going on. I’ve played a lot of New Year’s shows, you know, but I’ve honestly found that it’s not my favorite night to throw down. Look, for a living, that’s what I do. Every Thursday, Friday and Saturday night, I host a big party; not only on stage, but I’ve got friends backstage. It starts before the concert sometimes, [and] it goes long after the concert, so a lot of times on New Year’s, I’m looking for a really mellow hang – a good party, good friends, pretty chill. Some of my best New Year’s – it doesn’t make for great radio – but some of my best New Year’s have been just like actually hearing fireworks go off while I’m in bed, [laughs] and know I’m gonna wake up the next morning for the first day of the New Year feeling great, feeling recharged and I’m ready to go and go into the New Year feeling good as opposed to going into it with a giant Jagerbomb hangover, which I’ve done many, many times. So, the goal this year is to go into it feeling pretty good and the kids help with that, because you really just don’t want to be hungover with children. It’s not a good feeling. You would probably admit to any crime to get them, just feel better, and get them leave you alone.”

    Audio / Eric Church has a couple of hangover cures for those times (especially on New Year’s Eve) when you might imbibe a little too much.

    Download

    Eric Church (hangover cure) OC: …every time. :17
    “The best hangover cure – I’ve got two. One is 5-hour Energy [bottles], because of all the B-vitamins that are in it. You can start pounding those, and it’s either gonna work, or it’s gonna keep you up and prolong your misery. But the other one I have is just take two Advil and a beer in the morning. Hair of the dog, man – that works every time.”

    Audio / Jon Pardi talks about his own hangover cure.

    Download

    Jon Pardi (hangover cure) OC: …deal with it. :20
    “My hangover cure is Bloody Marys, but be careful – because once you have a couple, don’t go to beer, because if you go to beer, you’re gonna start drinking again and you’ll end up a morning drunk. OR if you want to go the non-alcoholic route, there’s nothing you can do for hangovers. [laughs] You just go deal with it.”

    Audio / Kacey Musgraves has her own hangover cure.

    Download

    Kacey Musgraves (hangover cure) OC: …water. Yup! :32
    “Coconut water is a major help with hangovers and also, a lot of times we go and eat Vietnamese fuh. It’s a soup, and it’s got this awesome broth. You can get different things in it or whatever, but for some reason, it’s just like…it’s almost like a chicken noodle soup kind of an idea, you know, but it’s good. That’s good for hangovers too. That, sleep, Tylenol, coconut water and just water, in general. And when you’re drinking, have your alcohol, drink a little bit of water, drink some more alcohol, drink some water. Yup!”

    Audio / Keith Urban says he loves playing New Year's Eve in Nashville.

    Download

    Keith Urban (playing Nashville 2019) OC: …getting to do it. :
    “I love it. I love playing in Nashville. I’ve lived here now 27 years. I’ve lived here longer than I lived in Australia, which is crazy, you now? Playing New Year’s Eve is awesome because you never know what to expect from year to year. This’ll be our fourth year doing it. We have Jason Isbell, Amanda Shires this year and a bunch of other people. There’s a whole bunch of people at this show. It’s free and the town gets behind it in a big way. It just feels like a, I don’t know, it just feels like a big Nash love fest really for me. I love it. I love getting to do it.”

    Audio / Kip Moore gives sound advice on how to avoid a hangover on New Year’s Eve.

We’re boys, you know? So, we just literally walked right over and burned the house down. That was one of my favorite New Year’s Eve memories, ‘cause I got to see my sister and brother-in-law get married and that was such a great, great time, and then me and my older cousin and best friend, we ended up at Waffle House that night, so it was good.”

    Travis Denning (hangover cure) OC: …me better. :17
    “You know, I think my hangover cure is just sitting on my butt, [laughs] not doing anything. Drink some water, a cup of coffee, but usually anything greasy or just some big ole Mexican food that’ll get me at least to a nap, which will get me better.”
