KIP MOORE’S BREAKOUT DEBUT ALBUM UP ALL NIGHT CERTIFIED PLATINUM BY RIAA
Nashville, TN – Aug 10, 2017 – Singer/songwriter Kip Moore celebrated a major milestone last night, as his breakout debut album UP ALL NIGHT was
certified PLATINUM by the RIAA. Moore was surprised by Universal Music
Group Nashville’s Mike Dungan and Cindy Mabe with a commemorative plaque
during an intimate event, hosted by CMT’s Leslie Fram, as he shared
more insight into his upcoming third studio album SLOWHEART, available
on Sept. 8. Moore first shot out of the gate with UP ALL NIGHT,
spawning 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.
by Moore, his current Top 15 single and the lead track taken from
SLOWHEART, “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” also follows the acclaim that
surrounded his sophomore album WILD ONES heralded as “an impressively
singular release from Music Row” by The Guardian.
Following an extended break, Moore is back out on the road playing some
of country music’s biggest festivals this year, 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.) For more
