Georgia native and MCA Nashville recording artist Kip Moore stopped by the K102 Roadhouse recently to promote his breakout single "Something About A Truck," a track on his new album Up All Night which is available today.
It was the singer-songwriter's second visit to the K102 Roadhouse. He first toured country radio in support of his single "Mary was the Marrying Kind," which he admitted didn't do quite what he was hoping for on the charts. He now has a top twenty single, "Something About a Truck," and had the Roadhouse audience of K102 listeners singing along.
Kip's self-diagnosed ADHD added a personable touch to the intimate three man acoustic set as he shared stories from the road, like his perpetual forgetfulness of leaving his guitar at airports, how he never sticks to the set list and his former life as a beach bum in Hawaii that somehow lead him back east to chase his music dreams.
Since landing in Nashville in 2004, Kip Moore has been working on what he calls his most honest work for Up All Night and also co-wrote two songs on country duo Thompson Square's debut album ("Let's Fight" and "All the Way").
He played an extended Roadhouse set of six songs from his new album, including the self-written "Let's Go Crazy," "Drive Me Crazy" and at the request of an audience member "Hey Pretty Girl," which is his next single [music video]. His vocals were rich, smooth and full but with an edge that a growing number of male vocalists are adopting. Unfortunately, this also makes him less distinguishable in a growing class of new artists. In the future, hopefully he can showcase his songwriting talents with tunes like "Reckless" and "Faith When I Fall" to set himself apart; instead of blending in with cliche, expected (although catchy!) country songs like "Something About a Truck."
