Moore headlines CMT on Tour

Monday, June 2, 2014 – Kip Moore will headline the CMT on Tour 2014: Up in Smoke this fall.

The tour starts on Sept. 25 in New York and will hit more than 20 cities through November, ending in Boston on Nov. 21.

Moore tapped newcomers Charlie Worsham and Sam Hunt to open. Tickets go on sale this Friday, June 6.

"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 number 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 has been working on a sophomore release. He released "Young Love" as the first single, which reached 26 on the Billboard Hot Country Songs chart. "Dirt Road" is the current single.

CD reviews for Kip Moore

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 ...
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 ...
