Moore, Wade star in "If I Was Your Lover" video

Friday, August 26, 2022 – Kip Moore dropped a new track today with "If I Was Your Lover."

Co-written by Moore with Matt Bubel, and the pair co-producing the song with Jaren Johnston (The Cadillac Three), Moore also released a video with singer Morgan Wade in it. Directed by his longtime collaborator, PJ Brown, the video was shot in Charleston, S.C. The cinematic and sultry video imagines a dream-like world in which Moore and Wade are together.

"A close friend and incredible musician Matt Bubel came over one day during the initial lockdown," said Moore. "We started playing music late into the night, and that's when he played the opening keys riff. My melody immediately fell out when I heard it, but was unsure of what I wanted to say. It had such a hypnotic feel about it, and I listened to the recording of only that piece for the next few nights. I woke up with the whole lyric in my head one morning, and I've been waiting to release this song ever since then. Filming the video with Morgan took the song to a whole new place. I'm excited for fans to hear this, along with see this video."

Moore recently shared his new track "Fire On Wheels." Moore's Fire On Wheels Tour starts in Salt Lake City, Utah on Sept. 8. Boy Named Banjo will open the shows.

Whereas Kid Rock mostly raises hell, Moore raises awareness. Kid Rock might be perfectly comfortable singing about his dark side, but Moore is heard ...
CD review - Room To Spare: The Acoustic Sessions Kip Moore's greatest musical selling point is his raspy singing voice. Much like Bob Seger long before him, his is a vocal tone that gets your immediate attention every time you hear it. This EP-length project presents Moore in a quieter setting than usual. That distinctive voice is unavoidable, though, whether revved up or tamped down. The song that stands out most is "It Ain't California," which is introduced with a beautifully twangy electric guitar riff. ...
CD review - Slowheart If you're one of those people who read CD inserts before listening to the music, Kip Moore starts out with one at least one strike against him on his third album. In the two pages of acknowledgements and thank yous (two pages!) there's this mixed metaphor on thank you number one, which goes out to Jesus: "You continually pull me from the sinking sand. . . I'm out of the woods because of your love." Um, not a lot of sand in the woods, Kip. Thankfully, things get better as ...
