TN – Dec. 18, 2015 – MCA singer/songwriter Kip Moore spent the last
three years touring non-stop and writing for the follow up to his debut
album which spawned three No. one hits and multi-PLATINUM sales.
What resulted is “the year’s most honest album” (Rolling Stone), with WILD ONES garnering praise on “Best Of” lists by Entertainment Weekly, Billboard, Rolling Stone, Sounds Likes Nashville and Brooklyn Magazine. Critics continue to loudly roar in appraisal of Moore’s sophomore offering while his unwavering fans voted the album as Taste Of Country’s “Best Album Of 2015.”
Assembling a WILD ONES takeover Moore’s profile sky-rocketed this year with an onslaught of national TV performances including Good Morning America, Jimmy Kimmel Live!, CMA Music Festival: Country’s Night to Rock and ACM Presents: Superstar Duets.
In 2016, fans will also be given an insight into never-before-heard
stories behind Moore’s biggest hits and stripped down versions of songs
taken from his new album when Moore’s episode of Front and Center, celebrating the CMA Songwriters Series airs on Public Television beginning 1/25.
Having built his career from the stage up with Washington Post heralding
Moore “is a natural when he’s on stage,” he kicked off 2015 stunning
crowds during his first stint in Europe. Moore then continued to wow
crowds across the U.S throughout the summer on tour with Dierks Bentley
as well as playing major festivals including New York City’s first-ever
country music festival FarmBorough where Moore’s performance was
spotlighted by both Village Voice and Rolling Stone in
their “Best Of” reviews. This fall Moore undertook a stream of sold-out
dates on his headlining WILD ONES TOUR that night after night saw fans
singing along to every track, radio single or not.
also looked to give back in the face of a wildly successful year,
launching his first charitable initiative known as the “Comeback Kid
Skatepark Project.” Phase one of the project oversaw the construction of
a series of skateparks in Nashville, TN; Boston, MA; San Marcos, TX;
and Annapolis, MD to benefit communities and “comeback kids.” The
project stemmed from Moore’s desire to provide an alternative outlet for
youth to engage in healthy habits and physical activities like
skateboarding while the inspiration for the name of the project came
from “Comeback Kid,” a personal anthem from Moore’s sophomore album.
As Moore looks to a New Year there are no signs of slowing down yet. Fans will be able to experience Moore’s album that Country Weekly
“matches the energy of his live show” for themselves as Moore
recently announced the second leg of his headlining WILD ONES TOUR that
will continue across the U.S and Canada due to fan demand. For more
