Hailed as a “career song” by Billboard, Kip Moore premiered the emotion-driven music video for “Running For You” on VEVO Friday. Moore is cast as the male lead in the passionate and fiery video that follows him and his leading lady as they face the individual challenges of their respective career paths, culminating in a dramatic Hollywood-style ending. Moore tapped his longtime friend PJ Brown to direct the video, though he had never been in the director’s chair before.
“I’ve been friends with PJ for years, he was the main one pushing me to chase my passion and move to Nashville,” said Moore. “He’s been able to document some of my concerts here and there, but we haven’t worked together on this level before. This song is unlike other songs I’ve released before and so I wanted the video to be really different from any of my other videos. PJ was able to bring our vision to life and I’m glad that the label let me take a chance on him.”
Moore continues to make an impression overseas as demand in Europe has led to bigger venues being scheduled in Birmingham, UK and Dublin, IE following venue capacity increases in Manchester, UK and Glasgow, UK almost immediately following on-sales, ahead of his stint in April. This fervent fan-following was established during Moore’s first visit across the pond last year when he “led the 20,000-capacity through a singalong” (Rolling Stone) at the O2 Arena in London. Moore continues his headlining WILD ONES TOUR this weekend with stops in Denver, CO (2/12) and Salt Lake City, UT (2/13) followed by a string of dates in Canada.
