CMT features Moore
Friday, May 3, 2013
– Kip Moore will be featured on Live @ CMT starting today.
The series takes fans behind closed doors for exclusive performances at the CMT studio in Nashville. Moore will play songs including his back to back number one hits Somethin' 'Bout A Truck and Beer Money as well as his current Top 20 single Hey Pretty Girl.
Moore is set to perform to a sold-out crowd at LP Field on June 7 as part of 2013 CMA Music Festival. His debut album, "Up All Night," was the best selling debut album from any country artist in 2012. He has sold out 15 headlining shows this year, including his stop in Boston at House of Blues, which sold out in 20 minutes. Moore is continuing to headline his own dates as well as hitting the road with Brantley Gilbert and opening for Toby Keith this summer.
