We've been talking about touring for years, and we're finally going to get that chance. It'll be a blast to see what we come up with, and also see Jordan Davis build his fan base out here with us."
Moore will release his third studio album "Slowheart" on Sept. 8. The disc includes his hit single "More Girls Like You."

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. »»»
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.

Claiming to have too many songs to choose from, Kip Moore's solution to his surplus was to release "Underground," an EP. "Everywhere we go the fans keep asking for the recordings of these underground songs that they've been hearing for the last few years," he said. "They're a passionate fan base so I decided to ask my label if I could record these songs live and give them the raw recordings."
Moore co-wrote all five tracks, which include two studio »»»
Editorial: Walking the talk
When names like Hank Williams, Johnny Cash, Waylon and the Hag are invoked, you're talking hard core country. These are the touchstones of country , the guys who made country music what it was and still is (or maybe can be). When these folks would sing about being down-and-out and the rough-and-tumble, they knew of what they were singing about. Fast forward a few years to the country singers of today. »»»

Concert Review: White makes the case for himself, no matter how dark the music
John Paul White opined with a glint in his eyes that his songs were not of the uplifting variety. In fact, they were downright dark. How else to explain "The Long Way" with the line "long way home back to you." Or "James," a song inspired by his grandfather who suffered from dementia.
But lest you think that the Alabama... »»»
