Kip Moore

Kip Moore’s fifth studio album DAMN LOVE is out today, available to listen here.  Co-produced by Moore, along with Jaren Johnston (The Cadillac Three), the 13 tracks hold on to passion, with the persistent anthem “Heart on Fire,” while “Another Night In Knoxville”  captures the magnetic draw of the stage as a sweeping ‘70s-rock ballad that soundtracks a long-cherished memory. Meanwhile the refreshing “Kinda Bar” conjures magic from a roadside tavern, and a comforting sense of clarity arrives with gentle instant classics, “Some Things” and “One Heartbeat” (featuring Ashley McBryde).

Moore will perform the title track and his new radio single (impacting Monday) “Damn Love” on GMA3 on Monday (May 1st) on ABC at 9:00am ET.

Moore is also sharing the music video for “Sometimes She Stays,” as the third installment in a series of recently released videos “Damn Love” and “Kinda Bar”. Directed by PJ Brown, the last piece of the story depicts Moore and his love interest revisiting moments in their relationship, set against the backdrop of New York City. Fans can watch the “Sometimes She Stays” video here.

“Jaren Johnston and I kicked off this album after writing “Peace & Love,” which helped create a theme for the rest of the record,” said Moore. “‘Damn Love’ comes from a combination of progression within myself and my career, and being emotionally raw, and the honesty that came along with some self-realization. This record shares all the highs and lows throughout my life, and I hope those who listen can feel that.”

The genre-blending songsmith has a history of entrancing audiences and growing a truly global following, receiving worldwide praise and kicking off his DAMN LOVE WORLD TOUR with multiple sold-out headlining shows in Australia and South Africa. Moore will continue his DAMN LOVE WORLD TOUR with headlining shows in Germany, the Netherlands, and the U.K., along with a slot at Bonnaroo this summer. Inviting special guest The Cadillac Three along for his fall tour, Moore’s headlining U.S. run is set to launch in Saginaw, MI on August 24th. For a full list of tour dates, visit

Audio / Kip Moore discusses how making this album during and after the pandemic helped shape Damn Love.


Kip Moore (Damn Love the album) OC: …dear to you. :42
“The past few years have definitely affected my writing for this particular record. I didn’t write about the pandemic specifically, but the pandemic definitely shifted perspectives in the way that you look at certain things. And even something like love, you know the title ‘Damn Love’ encompasses so many things. It encompasses the complexities of what that word means, the heartache of it, the power of it, the trying to understand it and figure it out, the need for it, the need for companionship. And I think that the last few years shifted your outlook on things and what you hold dear to you.”
