• KIP MOORE UNLEASHES “THE BULL” AS HIS NEW SINGLE.

    Kip Moore is unleashing “The Bull,” as the next single from his third studio album SLOWHEART. With a take-no-prisoners attitude and a spiraling acoustic guitar lick, the song became a quick standout on the album, immediately resonating with Moore’s fierce fanbase during his energetic live performances. Co-written by Jon Randall and Luke Dick, the song marks Moore’s first-ever outside recording, available HERE.

    “This song embodies who I am and what we’ve been doing on the road as a band for years,” said Moore. “I think ‘The Bull’ is for every common man and woman. It embodies the struggles that we all face in life, and it’s about getting up after you’ve been knocked down and going after whatever you believe in.”

    Moore was also recently recognized for his global success and growth, with a nomination for CMA’s International Achievement Award. The nod follows the recent extension of his Room To Spare: Acoustic Tour, following a sold-out run last fall. Moore will head out on a stacked tour next month with 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.”

  • 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.”

  • NEW YEAR’S EVE 2018

    What are some of your favorite stars doing to welcome in the New Year? A few of them are working to help fans celebrate. Several artists have taken the time off around the holidays and will hit it hard when they return to the road in January. Some artists have resolutions, and some are very helpful with their own hangover cures for those who imbibe too much on New Year’s Eve.

    Keith Urban is set to headline Music City on New Year’s Eve for the third consecutive year. He’ll perform at the Bicentennial Capitol Mall State Park as part of the Jack Daniels Music City Midnight bash. Peter Frampton, Judah & the Lion, Caitlyn Smith, Devon Gilfillian and the Fisk Jubliee Singers are also on the bill. Keith will be featured on “NBC’s New Year’s Eve,” which will be hosted by Carson Daly and Chrissy Teigen. The special will air Monday, December 31st from 10-11pm ET/PT and return 11:30pm – 12:30am ET/PT.

    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]

    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 says you don't want to have a hangover around children.

    Download

    Dierks Bentley (New Year’s) OC: …in stride. 1:11
    “New Year’s is rough. New Year’s hurts no matter what’s going o n. 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 ad 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. So, [I’m] gonna try to hit New Year’s this year in stride.”

    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 gives 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!”

    Kip Moore (avoiding hangovers on NYE) OC: …yourself. :03

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.”

  • 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.”

    ROOM TO SPARE: THE ACOUSTIC SESSIONS Track List:
    1. Plead The Fifth (Acoustic Version)
    (Luke Dick, Josh Kear)

    1. Tennessee Boy
      (Kip Moore, Dan Couch)
    2. Love You To The Moon
      (Charlie Worsham, Natalie Hemby, Luke Dick)
    3. It Ain’t California
      (Kip Moore, Charlie Worsham, Jon Mabe)
    4. Wish It Was Me
      (Kip Moore, Adam Browder, Scott Stepakoff, Dan Couch)
    5. Come Home With You
      (Kip Moore, Troy Verges, Blair Daly)
    6. Part Of Growing Up
      (Kip Moore, Josh Miller, Andrew DeRoberts)

    He will play these songs plus so many more when he launches the 2019 leg of his Room to Spare: Acoustic Tour March 7th in Chicago. He’ll wrap the trek with international shows in The U.K. and Canada. The newly revealed dates follow a limited fall run, which saw Moore playing all SOLD-OUT dates and audiences praising his stripped-down, intimate set. Charlie Worsham and vocal duo, Muscadine Bloodline are set to join Moore on select dates next year.

    Kip is sitting at No. 5 on the country charts with his latest song, “Last Shot,” which is the second taken from his third studio album SLOWHEART and follows his fourth No. One hit “More Girls Like You.”

    Audio / Kip Moore explains why he wanted to release his Room to Spare: The Acoustic Sessions EP.

    Kip Moore (Acoustic EP) OC: …it was time. :46
    “If I’m being honest, I could see how long this single was gonna be on the charts. I could see it happening, and 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. 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.

  • KIP MOORE CAPTIVATES SOLD-OUT GRAMMY MUSEUM AUDIENCE.

    Kip Moore took to the stage for a sold-out “Evening with Kip Moore at the GRAMMY Museum”on Friday night (December 14th) in Los Angeles. Hosted by Executive Director Scott Goldman, Moore offered insight into his career path so far and played a powerful solo acoustic set for the packed audience at the GRAMMY Museum’s Clive Davis Theater.

    During the evening, Moore answered questions from the audience, and his performance included a moving rendition of his current Top 10 single “Last Shot” and the fitting “It Ain’t California” for the LA crowd, taken from his recently released ROOM TO SPARE: THE ACOUSTIC SESSIONS EP

    Moore recently announced the extension of his Room To Spare: Acoustic Tour, following a sold-out run this fall. Moore will head out on a stacked tour with shows scheduled in the U.S., Canada and The U.K. Tickets to all four dates of Moore’s upcoming U.K. shows in London, Glasgow, Birmingham, and Manchester sold out within minutes of going on sale on Friday.

    Kip Moore’s current single “Last Shot” is the second taken from his revered third studio album SLOWHEART and follows his fourth No. One hit “More Girls Like You.” Moore’s third studio album SLOWHEART garnered instant praise from critics as his “most complete, cohesive declaration of his artistic sensibilities yet” (NPR,) as well landing 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 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.” For more information, visit kipmoore.net.

  • 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 (Christmas kids) OC: …joy to the house. :12
    “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.”

  • KIP MOORE EXPANDS HIS “ROOM TO SPARE: ACOUSTIC TOUR” INTO 2019.

    Multi-PLATINUM singer/songwriter Kip Moore announced the extension of his in-demand ROOM TO SPARE: ACOUSTIC TOUR today. The stacked run will kick off in Chicago, IL on 3/7 and will wrap with international shows in The U.K. and Canada. The newly revealed dates follow a limited fall run, which saw Moore playing all SOLD-OUT dates and audiences praising his stripped-down, intimate set. Charlie Worsham and vocal duo, Muscadine Bloodline are set to join Moore on select dates next year. Tickets will go on sale beginning Friday, December 14th at 10am local time, here.

    Moore, who is “quickly becoming one of country music’s most tireless and powerful live draws, and not just within the Unites States,” continues to impress fans and critics alike as his fan base is continually “expanding exponentially, especially internationally and in traditionally unconventional U.S. markets,” (Rolling Stone). “Moore is part of a groundswell of rising country artists with a focus on building their international presence, and with good reason,” (Music Row).
