admired the brotherhood of the skating community. Having a chance to
team up with a guy like Tony, who’s so respected for all he does, is
beyond what I could’ve imagined. I’m super stoked to combine what we do,
as we both share similar visions.”

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

Multi-PLATINUM
singer/songwriter Kip Moore recently announced that his upcoming third
studio album on MCA Nashville, SLOWHEART will be released on Sept. 8.
Co-written by Moore, his current Top 15 single and the lead track “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.”
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.
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:
