It seems Kip Moore may have gone back into the studio following his European trek to lay down some cool lyrics and funky beats. Check out his Instagram video below. In the meantime, he’s making his way up the country charts with his latest hit, “Running for You.” Kip is set to go on the road on Miranda Lambert’s Keeper of the Flame 2016 Tour, along with Brothers Osborne, in just a couple of weeks.
