KIP MOORE FIRES UP 1ST HEADLINING TOUR FOR CMT ON TOUR 2014: UP IN SMOKE
Moore Set To Perform His New Single “Dirt Road” Tonight On Late Night With Seth Meyers
Nashville, TN- June 2, 2014- PLATINUM-selling singer/songwriter Kip Moore will headline the CMT ON TOUR 2014: UP IN SMOKE this fall. The tour will kick off on Sept. 25 in New York, NY and will
hit over 20 cities through November. Moore has tapped newcomers
Charlie Worsham and Sam Hunt to come along for the ride. Tickets go on
sale this Fri., 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 No. 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.”
Tonight, Moore will perform his new single “Dirt Road” for the first time on television when he stops by Late Night With Seth Meyers.
From there, he heads full force into CMA Music Festival week with a
special performance outside Bridgestone Arena for fans to kick off the CMT Music Awards Red Carpet pre-show Wednesday night and will present later during the live awards telecast.
The Washington Post calls Moore “one of Nashville’s breakout
stars…” while his album UP ALL NIGHT was the best selling debut album
from any solo male country artist released in 2012 and 2013, and
produced three back-to-back No. one singles with the PLATINUM-selling
“Somethin’ ‘Bout A Truck,” “Beer Money” and “Hey Pretty Girl.” His
current single, “Dirt Road,” is from his upcoming sophomore album due
out on MCA Nashville.
Nashville’s rising singer-songwriter and multi-instrumentalist Charlie
Worsham is currently on tour celebrating his new single “Want Me Too”
off his critically-acclaimed album Rubberband. The album impressively
landed on several of 2013 Best Of lists; including Spin’s “Best Country
Albums,” American Songwriter’s “Top 50 Albums,” and Billboard’s “Top 10

talents. With a string of songwriting hits under his belt already,
