Kip Moore Thrills Sold-Out Crowds In Europe

kip moore

Known for building one of country music’s most loyal fanbases in the US, Multi-PLATINUM singer/songwriter Kip Moore looks to have emulated this fervent following in the UK and Ireland in the wake of his headlining stint across the pond this past week. Moore’s return was “eagerly anticipated” (Think Country) with the majority of shows selling out months in advance, prompting the move to bigger venues. Fans and critics agree he “cemented that special bond between crowd and performer…daring to be different, daring to take a risk, he is able to take the crowd further than most artists can by the sheer force of his performance” (2 Country Radio).

Kicking off in Dublin on Friday (4/22), Moore set the pace with a raucous show that led to an impromptu after-show performance at the stage door for fans who weren’t ready to call it a night, followed by a sold-out crowd in Glasgow (4/23) where he again took to the historic streets of the city after his performance to keep the party going. Rowdy shows in England beckoned as Moore played to packed houses in Birmingham (4/25), Manchester (4/26) and he closed out the triumphant run with a sold-out show in London last night (4/27).

Moore will head back out on the road next month for Miranda Lambert’s Keeper Of The Flame Tour, which kicks off in St. Louis, MO on 5/13. His current single, “Running For You,” continues to climb the charts and was taken from the critically acclaimed sophomore album WILD ONES that VICE declares “sprinkles a little late-night Bonnaroo magic…that’s made to be witnessed live.” WILD ONES follows Moore’s debut album UP ALL NIGHT which was recently 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.”

Old Dominion’s “Snapback” Inspires Fan-created Merchandise For Lids

Old Dominion

Green Bay Packers, New England Patriots, Pittsburgh Steelers… all these national NFL team stadiums have seen ACM Best New Duo/ Group of the Year Old Dominion play their hallowed fields while on tour with Kenny Chesney, and now they have another commonality: each fan base have a chance to create their own customized New Era cap with LIDS. The five-piece band comprised by lead singer Matthew Ramsey, lead guitarist Brad Tursi, multi-instrumentalist Trevor Rosen, bassist Geoff Sprung and drummer Whit Sellers, may have found the perfect partner for their 2016 summer tour in LIDS Sports Group and headwear manufacturer New Era. The partnership launched today with a hat design contest in honor of Old Dominion’s Top 5-and-climbing single, “Snapback,” and will continue through June 21.

From now until June 21st, fans are encouraged to design a hat for the band and submit their design image via Twitter or Instagram by tagging @LIDS and @OldDominion (@OldDominionBand on Instagram) while including the hashtags #OldDominionLids and #contest. A design image can also be uploaded through LIDS’ contest website. No purchase necessary to enter the contest.

“Working with a company like LIDS just makes sense for us,” expressed Old Dominion’s lead singer Matthew Ramsey. “Every night we play a song we wrote that has now become a hit and was inspired by seeing so many of our fans wearing Snapbacks. Our fans are LIDS customers and we are excited to partner up and bring them into the Old Dominion family.”

A winning hat design will be selected each week for the duration of the contest, providing each winner with two free tickets to see Old Dominion perform as part of Kenny Chesney’s 2016 Spread the Love Tour, agreed upon between the winner and LIDS. After eight weeks of design selections, those eight designs will be put forward for a fan vote to determine the grand prize winner. The fan with the leading design will receive a VIP ticket and travel package to a tour date, complete with an Old Dominion meet-and-greet backstage. Additionally, and with the help of New Era, LIDS will also put the grand prize winner’s design will also be featured on a New Era snapback to be sold at participating stores throughout the country.

“We are excited to partner with a group of musicians that exemplify the core values of our brand,” said LIDS co-founder Glenn Campbell. “This band is known for its passion and commitment to the music, the same way our patrons are known for their dedication to their favorite sports teams. Their ambition and love of ‘snapbacks’ makes Old Dominion the perfect partner for LIDS.”
