KIP MOORE’S “WILD WORLD” IS AVAILABLE TODAY.

Kip Moore’s much-anticipated fourth studio album WILD WORLD is available now. To mark the release Moore shifted gears in the midst of the current landscape and invited an intimate group of industry and fans to a unique Drive-In album release event at the Stardust Drive-In in Watertown, TN last night. Attendees enjoyed a screening of Moore’s just-released documentary 7 DAYS AT THE ROCK available to watch here, followed by a compelling conversation with Moore and host Storme Warren, who were also joined by director and longtime collaborator PJ Brown.

Continuing the celebrations tonight, Moore will perform songs taken from the record as part of a special livestream event from Analog in Nashville, TN where Moore will also be joined by some of his band for a power acoustic performance. The first time Moore will play some of the songs from WILD WORLD live, fans can tune in tonight (5/29) at 8pm CT to Moore’s Facebook and Youtube pages to watch the livestream benefiting MusiCares COVID-19 Relief Fund. Spotify will match donations to MusiCares via their COVID-19 Music Relief project

This week, Moore will delve deeper into WILD WORLD with a stacked schedule of interviews and virtual live performances including Paste’s “The Happiest Hour” on Monday 6/1 at 4pm CT on Youtube, Amazon Music’s “Live Q+A” on Tuesday 6/2 at 11am CT on Facebook, an interview with GRAMMY Museum’s “Programs at Home” and a Facebook Live performance for American Songwriter “Behind The Mic” on Wednesday 6/3 at 7pm CT, as well as a Billboard Session on Facebook Live on 6/4 at 12pm CT.

Critics have already been quick to praise and highlight many songs on Moore’s WILD WORLD, with Rolling Stone applauding “Red White Blue Jean American Dream” declaring “in a throaty rasp…[the song] takes on a lean, Gaslight Anthem punk-Americana sound,” as Billboard shared “another highlight on the project is “Southpaw,” a guitar heavy arena rocker celebrating the underdog,” and Esquire spotlighted “Payin’ Hard” as “the heftiest emotional wallop of his career.” Moore co-wrote all but one of the tracks on WILD WORLD even self-producing the set, with help from David Garcia, Luke Dick and Blair Daly on respective tracks.

“I truly hope the fans are able to enjoy this body of work,” shared Moore. “A lot of people put countless hours and heart into this project. Cheers to all the fans that have been with us every step of the way.”

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.

Kip Moore (inspiration behind the music) OC: …this record. :40
“Most of the songs that came about from this record were during a round of touring around 2018 when I found myself really broken down in a lot of ways – physically, spiritually, emotionally. There was a constant search for simplicity. I found myself departed from my faith; I was searching. You sense that with so much of this record, you sense that search for peace. It’s an elusive thing, but I’m trying to grab a hold of it all throughout this record.”

KIP MOORE PREVIEWS WILD WORLD WITH WORLD PREMIERE OF “FIRE AND FLAME.”

Kip Moore marked the eve of his record release with the world premiere of “arena rock” (Esquire) driven track “Fire And Flame” exclusively with BBC Radio 2. Co-written by Moore with Cary Barlowe, Brett James and Will Weatherly, the track is a blowtorch anthem that pours gasoline on the quest for greater meaning and fans heard the track first on “The Country Show with Bob Harris on BBC Radio 2” (The UK’s most listened to radio station) at 5pm CST/ 11pm BST Thursday (5/28) here: https://www.bbc.co.uk/programmes/m000jhb5.

Moore’s timely and vulnerable new documentary “7 DAYS AT THE ROCK” will also premiered last night (5/28) on Outside TV. The short film follows Moore through some of his experiences in isolation at his remote rock climbing facility, BedRock, located in Red River Gorge, Kentucky, as well as the weeks leading up to the release of his fourth studio album WILD WORLD, available tomorrow  May 29. “7 DAYS AT THE ROCK” will be available on all major streaming platforms and devices including The Roku Channel and Samsung TV Plus.

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 (Fire and Flame) OC: …intact. 1:44
“I grew up in the Bible Belt in southern Georgia, and I grew up going to the Baptist church. Once I got done with high school, I always kinda wanted to go on my own spiritual journey and try to figure out what God looked like to me, where I fit in in this whole thing, and what is this whole thing that’s happening all around us all the time, trying to process the feelings that I feel and some of the maybe resentment I had with the things that maybe I was taught that I wasn’t quite in compliance with and in agreement with. And once I turned 18, I kind of always have been on that journey. I’ve read a lot myself. I read a lot of scripture, I’ve studied different religions, I always want to understand where people are coming from. I’ve always had my own faith, and I still have that about me, and I slip and I slide a lot. The faith is always inside me but no matter how much I know that I need it, no matter how much I know I need to read and stay centered, I still neglect that part of my life a lot. Whenever I start doing that is when I feel disconnected and lost. Knowing that, I still do that. Fire and the Flame is just a song speaking of my journey and the things that I feel inside about everything that I just said. I just know I’m not the only one that feels this way and has those questions and has those questions about myself. But regardless of the questions that I do have, my faith always remains intact.”

We have compiled an array of content — liners and a few soundbites – from KIP MOORE to equip you with some tools that we hope will come in handy and help you roll out tracks leading up to – and following – the release of his new album, WILD WORLD. Check out the toolkit here.

Kip Moore is ready to release his highly-anticipated fourth studio album WILD WORLD on Friday (May 29th). Co-writing all but one of the tracks, Kip reveals an honest and insightful look at his own vulnerabilities and how he found joy navigating the search to find a place and purpose.

He’s currently making his way up the country charts with “She’s Mine.”

JORDAN DAVIS’ BINGEWORTHY SHOW? OZARK.

As everyone has experienced over the past two months during this quarantine, there hasn’t been a lot to do other than take walks and binge watch some good shows. For Jordan Davis, who just released his self-titled EP last week, has been busy doing virtual acoustic performances, taking care of his wife and six-month old daughter and binge-watching shows. His favorite pick is Amazon Prime’s Ozark starring Jason Bateman and Lauren Linney. The show centers around Martin “Marty” Byrde, a self-employed financial advisor based in Chicago , when he and his business partner begin to launder money for a Mexican drug cartel. His partner is killed and Marty relocates his family in the Ozarks in Missouri.

“Due to quarantine, I have found my new obsession, which is Jason Bateman and Ozark,” says Jordan. “I’ve always been a Jason Bateman fan, but, man, it’s up there with Breaking Bad for me. I think that Ozark is one of my favorite shows out. Not a spoiler alert, but the end of Season 3, y’all are in for it, if y’all haven’t seen it yet.”

He adds, “That’s like an ideal setting for me. We grew up going to Lake Hamilton in Arkansas, you know so boat riding and that kind of setting just kind of brings me back to my middle school, high school years of family vacations. Actually, we have a vacation to Lake Lanier in Georgia, where they shot Ozark coming up soon. I look forward to getting over there and channeling my inner Marty Byrd, if you will.”

Jordan recently hit the airwaves with his new single, “Almost Maybes.”

KIP MOORE SAYS FANS CAN EXPECT HONESTY AND JOY IN HIS NEW RECORD, WILD WORLD.

Kip Moore is ready to release his highly-anticipated fourth studio album WILD WORLD on Friday (May 29th).

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.

“Fans can expect honesty with this new record, WILD WORLD, says Kip. “And I think they’re gonna find themselves wanting to dig up some of their owns bones that they’ve buried, some of those regrets from their past that have been weighing them down, and I think it’s gonna make them feel safe in their own vulnerabilities to face those regrets and try to find peace in ‘em.”

Kip is also hoping fans experience joy when listening to his new album. “I hope that they find joy in this record the way I found joy searching for simplicities in life,” he says. “I hope that it means something to them the same way it did for me. I think there’s a search for faith throughout this record and how that looks to all of us. It might take on different shapes and forms for each of us, but it definitely probes the questions and makes you search.”

TRAVIS DENNING SHARES LOOK INTO LIFE IN QUARANTINE WITH NEW MUSIC VIDEO FOR “SITTIN’ BY A FIRE” TAKEN FROM HIS RECENTLY RELEASED BEER’S BETTER COLD EP.

Mercury Nashville Recording artist Travis Denning is offering fans a look into life at home, sharing the music video for his “intimate” (American Songwriter) new song “Sittin’ By A Fire.” Taken from his newly released EP, BEER’S BETTER COLD, the video portrays the simple joy of appreciating the small things in life, such as a lit fire and the company of a loved one. Denning co-wrote the new track with Rhett Akins and Jeremy Stover, as well as four additional tracks on the new project including his current Top 5 and climbing single “After A Few.”

 

A native of Warner Robins, Georgia, singer/songwriter Travis Denning’s Top 5 single “After A Few” follows the release of his “heart-tuggin’” (Rolling Stone) Top 40 debut single “David Ashley Parker From Powder Springs.” Denning kicked off 2020 as direct support on Dustin Lynch’s STAY COUNTRY TOUR and has previously opened shows for Cole Swindell, Alan Jackson, LANCO, Riley Green and his first headlining “Heartbeat Of A Small Town Tour.” With over 224 million streams worldwide, Denning has been spotlighted by Billboard for his “future star power” and was selected this past year as an Opry NextStage recipient and CMA KixStart Artist, as he makes his mark within the industry. Inspired at a young age, Denning developed a love for country, pop, rock and heavy metal and started playing local bars from the age of 16, as he built a strong following from his distinctive songs and raucous guitar solos. A prolific writer with an unquestionable stage presence, Denning moved to Nashville and secured outside cuts by Jason Aldean, Justin Moore, Michael Ray, and Chase Rice. Denning’s newest songwriting cut includes Michael Ray’s Top 20 single “Her World or Mine.” For more information, visit travisdenning.com.

LITTLE BIG TOWN SENDS “WINE, BEER, WHISKEY” TO COUNTRY RADIO.

Grammy Award-winning vocal group Little Big Town will be performing the television premiere of their new single “Wine, Beer, Whiskey” on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon: At Home Edition Monday, June 1st on NBC.  The song, written by Tofer Brown, Karen Fairchild, Sean McConnell, Kimberly Schlapman, Phillip Sweet, and Jimi Westbrook was a fun moment of levity for the band and their co-writers and was completed in under an hour paying homage to friends named Jack, Jose, Brandy, Sherry, and Captain.
 
“Wine, Beer, Whiskey” is featured on the band’s 9th studio album Nightfall, which debuted at the top spot of Billboard’s Country Chart upon its release this past January. The song was quickly a standout garnering praise from press and fans alike.
…the singers of “Pontoon” and “Day Drinking” know how to have a party…they serve up the drinks and jam out to trumpets and marching drums on “Wine, Beer, Whiskey,” a reprieve from some of the moodier tracks on the record.
-Associated Press
 
“Wine, Beer, Whiskey” is a raucous, horn-assisted party, the four members saluting bar fixtures like “Jack” and “Tito” the way old friends might as last call hits.
-Entertainment Weekly
 
 
… funky little Mariachi tune featuring brassy horn blasts…
-Billboard
 
“Wine Beer Whiskey” is the perfect interruption…and arguably the best single choice on the record…Mariachi horns open before Sweet and Westbrook lead
an anthem that brings major “Pontoon” vibes without duplicating a thing from the
band’s past.
-Taste Of Country

LBT (WBW) 1 OC: …we need right now. :22
“I really love the spirit of this song so much. We wrote it and it was really just like in the moment – ‘Hey, who wants a glass of wine or a beer or whiskey?’ And next thing you know we have a song, and now here we go, we’re putting it out. So, I hope the fans love it like we do. It’s a jam. It’s a party, and that’s what we need right now.”
