Kip Thrills Sold-Out Crowd In Chicago!

Kip upheld his reputation as "one of country music’s most impressive headline acts” (Sounds Like Nashville) this past weekend, hosting the first sold-out Saturday night (7/15) crowd at Windy City Smokeout in Chicago, IL. Moore, who closed out the evening with an unforgettable set, is currently gearing up for the release of his upcoming third studio album SLOWHEART, available Sept. 8, warming up as he plays to "venues packed with diehard fans from Atlantic City to Australia who hang on every note and word” (Rolling Stone).

 

Co-written by Moore, his current single moving up the Top 15 and the lead track from his upcoming release “More Girls Like You,” is the fastest rising single of his career so far and is receiving praise from critics such as Entertainment Weekly declaring he “has made a name for himself weaving vignettes of Southern, blue-collar life and love into rollicking country anthems.” As he "consistently serves up clever roots-rock riffs and rhythms that separate Moore from the rock-meets-rap focus of his Nashville peers" (Associated Press), the release of "More Girls Like You" follows the acclaim that surrounded his sophomore album WILD ONES heralded as "an impressively singular release from Music Row" by The Guardian. Moore first turned heads with his debut album UP ALL NIGHT which was certified GOLD by the RIAA and spawned three No. One hit singles including GOLD certified "Beer Money," PLATINUM certified "Hey Pretty Girl," and the DOUBLE PLATINUM breakout hit "Somethin' 'Bout A Truck." Following an extended break, Moore is back out on the road across the U.S and Canada this summer, as well as headlining dates in U.K this fall stopping in Birmingham, UK (10/2), Manchester, UK (10/3), Glasgow, UK (10/4) and culminating in a special show as part of Country Music Week in London, UK at O2 Shepherd’s Bush Empire on 10/6. Moore will also return to Ireland later this summer for Harvest 2017, stopping in Westport, IE (8/26) and Enniskillen, IE (8/27.)

This guy right here! I hope all the awards are show are paying attention and taking note.  Kip Moore should be ENTERTAINER OF THE YEAR!!!  No he's not Jason Aldean, he's not Luke Bryan, he's not Blake Shelton, he's not (you finish that statement). He's KIP MOORE!!  He's better. I promise he is the BEST.  Buy a ticket, attend the concert, you'll be so glad you did.  From the moment you get goosebumps because you know he's about to take the stage to the final guitar chords he plays.  Amazing! A great performer!   

When he sings, you can hear the feelings, the hard work, the hours of energy he puts into writing his songs. Oh my goodness, when he starts to move about the stage, ladies y'all will enjoy and if you're lucky enough to be front row and he leans on those speakers and croons before you, be still my beatin' heart!!!!   

I know posting this here is probably like preachin' to the choir, but it's got to start somewhere. 2. I'm sorry wait Fuck NO, i'm not sorry, KIP MOORE IS FUCKIN' AWESOME.
