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.

This sonic is likely more appealing than the raw emotion she expressed with her single, "Wilder Days." The title track is about a guy that thinks Wade is a psychopath, but he's likely not ...
You may be confused by the opening title track of Kip Moore's fifth studio album. "Damn Love" is a soft techno ballad straight out of the Eighties from an artist that traditionally has gone for hard charging hits like "Beer Money" and "Somethin' Bout a Truck." He has regaled his fans with tales of running off with an airport flight attendant, getting fired from Wal-Mart for smoking grass and a litany of other country vices including, drinking of course. ...
CD review - Wild World There are moments while listening to Kip Moore's album where the listener might feel like he/she is sampling new Kid Rock music - albeit, with plenty more heart and soul. Moore sings with a similarly endearing scratchy vocal tone, and has a primarily country music fan base, but that's where these two artists part ways artistically. Whereas Kid Rock mostly raises hell, Moore raises awareness. Kid Rock might be perfectly comfortable singing about his dark side, but Moore is heard ...
