Kip Moore Set To Headline CMT On Tour 2014: Up In Smoke

Posted by Administrator on June 3, 2014 at 11:00 AM Comments comments (0)

PLATINUM-selling singer/songwriter Kip Moore will headline the CMT ON TOUR 2014: UP IN SMOKE this fall. The tour will kick off on Sept. 25 in New York, NY and will hit over 20 cities through November. Moore has tapped newcomers Charlie Worsham and Sam Hunt to come along for the ride. Tickets go on sale this Fri., June 6. For a full list of dates and more information, visit: http://www.cmt.com/music/cmt-on-tour/2014/.

 

"We've been on the road pretty much non-stop for the past four years playing as much as we can wherever we can," said Moore. "When we started out sometimes there would only be five people at a show, and seeing the crowds grow over the years is really humbling and encouraging. And now to be teaming up with CMT for a tour is a really exciting moment in my career. We'll definitely be playing lots of songs from the new album out on the road so it will be fun to test those out and see what the fans think."

 

“Kip’s UP ALL NIGHT album swept us away with an edge and swagger that put him in a class of his own, coupled with three back-to-back No. one singles,” said Leslie Fram, SVP of Music Strategy, CMT. “The rest of the story is happening now and we’re proud to have him headline our 13th annual CMT On Tour, along with CMT Listen Up artist Charlie Worsham and hot newcomer Sam Hunt.”

 

Moore performed his new single "Dirt Road" for the first time on television last night on Late Night With Seth Meyers. From there, he heads full force into CMA Music Festival week with a special performance outside Bridgestone Arena for fans to kick off the CMT Music Awards Red Carpet pre-show Wednesday night and will present later during the live awards telecast.

 

The Washington Post calls Moore "one of Nashville's breakout stars…" while his album UP ALL NIGHT was the best selling debut album from any solo male country artist released in 2012 and 2013, and produced three back-to-back No. one singles with the PLATINUM-selling "Somethin' 'Bout A Truck," "Beer Money" and "Hey Pretty Girl." His current single, "Dirt Road," is from his upcoming sophomore album due out on MCA Nashville. For the latest updates, visit www.kipmoore.net.

 

Nashville's rising singer-songwriter and multi-instrumentalist Charlie Worsham is currently on tour celebrating his new single “Want Me Too” off his critically-acclaimed album Rubberband. The album impressively landed on several of 2013 Best Of lists; including Spin’s “Best Country Albums,” American Songwriter’s “Top 50 Albums,” and Billboard’s “Top 10 Country Albums.” For more information, please visit www.charlieworsham.com.

 

Sam Hunt is quickly becoming one of Nashville's most talked about young talents. With a string of songwriting hits under his belt already, including Kenny Chesney’s No. one single “Come Over” and Keith Urban's smash hit "Cop Car." As one of Rolling Stone’s “Ten Artists You Need to Know," Hunt's first commercial radio single “Leave The Night On” launches nationwide mid-June. For more information, visit www.samhunt.com.

Kip Moore Releases Lead Single "Young Love"

Posted by Administrator on October 30, 2013 at 11:40 AM Comments comments (0)

PLATINUM-selling artist Kip Moore announced "Young Love" as the lead single from the follow up to his MCA debut, UP ALL NIGHT. It follows three consecutive No. one hits and was written by Moore and longtime friends Dan Couch ("Hey Pretty Girl," "Somethin' Bout A Truck") and Weston Davis. With a building tempo and powerful instrumentation, the song captures the passionate and all consuming emotions of a first love. Fans can unlock a special preview of the track by visiting http://www.younglove.kipmoore.net/.

 

"Being able to write songs with a couple of your best friends and then actually have some success with it is something every up and coming songwriter dreams about, and I have a hard time believing that we've achieved that sometimes. Beyond being friends, Dan and Weston are two of the most talented guys I know, and we always push each other to be better," said Moore. "This song is about being in love so much that the rest of the world doesn't matter, it is just about those two people. Especially being young, everyone else might not take it as seriously as you are feeling it. I think most people have been there and we wanted to tell that story."

 

Last year, Moore shot out of the gate with the best selling debut country album of 2012, UP ALL NIGHT, which spawned the PLATINUM, two week chart-topping hit "Somethin' 'Bout A Truck," followed by two more No. one singles, "Beer Money" and "Hey Pretty Girl." Moore has relentlessly toured the country coast to coast this year with Eric Church, Brantley Gilbert and Toby Keith amid selling out his own headlining shows, often in just minutes. Up next for Moore is the 47th Annual CMA Awards airing live Wed., Nov. 6 at 8:00P CT on ABC where he is nominated for "New Artist of the Year." Moore will kick off his own headlining dates for the BURN THE WHOLE WORLD DOWN Tour kicking off Nov. 15 in Jacksonville, FL and going through Dec. 14. In January, he will join Lady Antebellum for their TAKE ME DOWNTOWN TOUR.

Seven-time GRAMMY award-winning trio Lady Antebellum has announced the first leg of their headlining TAKE ME DOWNTOWN TOUR 2013. The group has invited Kip Moore and Kacey Musgraves to join the arena tour kicking off Nov. 8 in Southaven, MS and running through December.

Visit www.ladyantebellum.com for the most updated on-sale information and www.cidentertainment.com/ladyantebellum for VIP opportunities.

 

“We spent almost every day last year backstage writing for our album GOLDEN, so we were really focused on writing songs that would connect with the fans in these arenas. We definitely learned a lot about ourselves as live performers and the type of catalog we wanted to have so that we could go out and try to give the fans the best show they’ve ever experienced,” explains Lady A’s Charles Kelley. “All of that was the jumping off point for this tour, and now it’s time to take it to the next level.”

 

Last year, Lady A hosted over one million fans across the globe in 11 countries on their first headlining world tour, which earned them Billboard Touring’s “Breakthrough Award,” CMA’s “International Artists Achievement Award” and will accept the “Jim Reeves International Award” at this fall’s ACM Honors. The shows were inspirational and critics praised the band’s “youthful exuberance and unending energy.”

Since its 2006 inception, Lady A has won the “Vocal Group of the Year” honor from both the CMA and from the ACM’s three times in a row and sold over 11 million albums worldwide. The trio has taken seven trips to No. one on the country radio charts, earned five Platinum singles including their recent “Downtown” and has been awarded with seven GRAMMY awards including the all-genre “Record of the Year” and “Song of the Year.” In the end, the mix of their road experiences, songwriting and creative partnership have allowed the magic to remain – because they have kept the focus on the music.

 

Platinum-selling artist Kip Moore’s current No. one hit “Hey Pretty Girl” is the third consecutive chart-topper off his debut album UP ALL NIGHT, which was the best selling debut album from any country artist released last year. His first No. one single, “Somethin’ ‘Bout A Truck,” held the top spot on both charts for two weeks making him the first solo artist in four years to have a debut album’s first single go No. one for multiple weeks. Moore has already sold out dozens of headlining shows this year, often in just minutes and recently played his first stadium show as part of CMA Music Festival: Country’s Night to Rock.

 

Nashville-based singer/songwriter, Kacey Musgraves released her debut album Same Trailer Different Park this past spring to massive critical acclaim and recognition. The album debuted at No. one on Billboard’s Top Country Albums chart making her the first solo female in five years to open at No. one with a rookie release. She’s received ACM, CMT and Teen Choice Award nominations and her Top 10 single “Merry Go ‘Round” was recently certified Gold and follow up single “Blowin’ Smoke” is currently climbing the charts.
