About Kip Moore And “Kip’s Kids Fund:”

Multi-PLATINUM singer/songwriter Kip Moore’s already-revered “thoroughly vital, 13-song collection” (NPR) SLOWHEART is available everywhere now. Moore has hit his stride with SLOWHEART, with critics including Noisey declaring
the release as “the sound of an uncompromising, genre-defying artist
firing on all cylinders,” while his current Top 10 single “More Girls
Like You,” is the fastest rising single of his
career. SLOWHEART 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
recently certified Double-PLATINUM 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. Moore, who has trail-blazed his
own path with his reputation-making live show recently
announced his headlining PLEAD THE FIFTH TOUR kicking off on 10/19 as
well as headlining dates in U.K this fall. Moore’s “Comeback Kid
Skatepark Project” raising funds for “Kip’s
Kids Fund” was born as a passion project, with the goal of finding an
outlet to showcase Moore’s love for the alternative sports lifestyle,
and his desire to help inner city children.
Phase one cities of the project included building and developing
skateparks in Nashville, TN; Boston, MA; San Marcos, TX; Cincinnati, OH
and Annapolis, MD. The “Comeback Kid Skatepark
Project” is the first initiative of “Kip’s Kids Fund,” a donor-advised
fund through The Community Foundation of Middle Tennessee (CFMT) focused
on youth and teens. As a result, the “Kip’s
Kid Fund” provides alternative outlets for youth to engage in healthy
habits and physical activities like skateboarding, in addition to the
traditional sports offerings where they live. For more information visit:
