Kip Moore Set to Perform 57th Annual Coke Zero 400

Kip Moore

Kip Moore is set to perform a special concert for fans on Sunday, July 5 at Daytona International Speedway as part of the 57th Annual Coke Zero 400 Powered By Coca-Cola NASCAR Sprint Cup Series race. Moore will perform his current chart climbing single, “I’m To Blame” live on NBCSN as part of the pre-race festivities.

Currently making stops across the country with Dierks Bentley’s 2015 Sounds Of Summer Tour and hitting some of the country’s biggest summer festivals along the way, Moore continues to make an impression on critics with Milwaukee Journal Sentinel calling out “with drinks hoisted and most of the songs loudly sung along by the fans on the bleachers, this was a party at the core” and Village Voice deeming him “the definition of laid-back country cool.”

Moore’s sophomore album, WILD ONES, is set to be released on Aug. 21st. A super-sized record inspired by the grit, grind and glamour of the live shows, each track on WILD ONES was written by Moore and follows his debut album, UP ALL NIGHT, which spawned three No. One multi-platinum selling smash hits. His current single “I’m To Blame,” is steadily climbing the charts and was the second most added song during its debut week at country radio, marking Moore’s biggest first week for a new single.

FarmBorough Festival Takes NYC!

FarmBorough

New York City hosted its first-ever country music festival this past weekend, as the inaugural FarmBorough, a collaboration between Live Nation Entertainment and Founders Entertainment, took over Randall’s Island with over 40,000 fans in attendance.

FarmBorough kicked off the three-day, two-stage festival taking over New York City’s Central Park on Good Morning America’s Summer Concert Series, with a performance by Friday’s headliner Dierks Bentley, as well as guests Kip Moore, Maddie & Tae and Canaan Smith getting a preview of some of the festival’s food trucks and more before heading down to Randall’s Island to kick off the festival’s first night “with thousands lounging on the grounds, eating barbecue and singing along with acts” – Associated Press.

With the festival’s first year in full swing on Saturday, “for both a genre and a city, it’s a milestone” noted The Star Ledger, and as a testament to the city’s loyal country music following, fans powered through an onslaught of rain to enjoy Saturday’s headliner Brad Paisley who kept fans spirits high throughout his set including a spine-tingling collaboration of “Whiskey Lullaby” with earlier performer Mickey Guyton.

With fans enjoying the festival’s multiple onsite activities including a giant inflatable slide and Skyhawk Swing throughout the day on Sunday, headliner Luke Bryan closed out the night with a hit-filled set, as Village Voice heralded the festival’s diverse lineup commenting “FarmBorough aligns chart toppers like Bryan with household names like Dwight Yoakam and those innovating within the framework of a more traditional sound, like Jon Pardi and Sturgill Simpson.”

“This weekend was a dream come true,” said Brian O’ Connell Live Nation President of Country Touring. “It really doesn’t get bigger than New York City and the way that the country community here and those who travelled to get here, took a chance on us and embraced FarmBorough in its first year has astounded me. I can’t say it enough how thankful I am to all the fans and the artists who joined in with me on this.”

“We couldn’t be more thrilled with the success of FarmBorough’s inaugural year,” said Co-founder and Partner at Founders Entertainment, Jordan Wolowitz.  “New York City fully embraced the Country community and FarmBorough proved that it’s here to say. We can’t wait for 2016!”

Kip Moore Reveals “Comeback Kid Skatepark Project!”

kip moore

Kip Moore announced plans for his “Comeback Kid Skatepark Project,” a charitable initiative that will oversee the construction of a series of skateparks to benefit communities and “comeback kids.” At a press conference today, Moore along with Mayor Karl Dean and Salemtown Board Co, revealed the phase one cities of the project including Nashville, TN; Boston, MA; San Marcos, TX; and Annapolis, MD. The inspiration for the name of the project comes from “Comeback Kid,” a personal anthem from Moore’s upcoming album WILD ONES.

“What started off as a pipe dream of mine years ago, has truly become a passion project,” said Moore. “It came from me wanting to give kids in inner cities a safe outlet, where they can form the bonds I know can be made from having somewhere awesome to go and be a part of something they enjoy. I wrote the song ‘Comeback Kid’ at a time when I felt like a comeback kid, but now when I sing it I think less about myself and more about the kids we are doing this for and how much I admire and respect them. We’re starting with these four cities, but the plan is to keep growing this as far and wide as we can.”

Each park will have a unique design to provide the perfect first step for anyone of any age to learn how to skate. Making the most of the size and space available, most skate spots will range from 1,500 to 3,000 square feet and will include elements such as quarter pipe, bank-to-curb, hubba ledges, hand rail and step up. Most of the phase one skateparks will be up and running by this Fall.

The “Comback 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 an avid rock climber, surfer, skateboarder and outdoor enthusiast, Moore has been drawn to the outdoors and alternative sports for much of his life. He also has a heart for small town and inner city kids growing up with too few options. 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.

Moore’s sophomore album, WILD ONES, is set to be released on Aug. 21st.  Moore will head out on the road for Dierks Bentley’s 2015 Sounds Of Summer Tour, which kicks off this weekend in Raleigh, NC on 6/5.

Kip Moore Unleashes “Wild Ones” Aug. 21

Kip MOore

Multi-Platinum selling singer/songwriter Kip Moore’s highly anticipated sophomore album on MCA Nashville, Wild Ones, will be released on Fri., Aug. 21.  A super-sized record inspired by the grit, grind and glamour of the live shows that have helped make him a country favorite, each track on WILD ONES was written by Moore. Fans can pre-order the album with an exclusive merch package here.

Wild Ones really encompasses everything I’ve been through out on the road since the first album, it embodies us as a band every night out on stage, it alludes to the traveling circus it sometimes feels like we are a part of,” said Moore. “I’m so glad that I’m able to finally let the fans know when to expect what we’ve been working on so passionately for the past couple years, to let them know the wait is nearly over.”

Each song on the 13-track disc was born on the road during soundchecks, inside backstage dressing rooms, and in Moore’s bunk at night and recorded during “time off” from playing more than 200 shows a year.  Often heralded for his live show, that mixes the wild desperation of Bruce Springsteen with the rootsy stomp of Merle Haggard and ranges somewhere between blue-collar country music and stadium-sized rock & roll, Wild Ones captures the feeling of a Kip Moore concert, ranging from poignant to anthemic.

Driven forward by electric guitars and gang vocals, “Lipstick” is the album’s most heartfelt tribute to the road, with each verse rattling off a list of the favorite cities Moore and his bandmates have played in the past. Other songs, like “That Was Us,” take a look backward, sketching a picture of the archetypal small-town Saturday nights that filled Moore’s teenage years in Georgia. “Magic,” anchored by one of the anthemic, open-armed choruses of Moore’s career, is loud and lovely, and “Comeback Kid” packs its punch the opposite way: by dialing back the volume and delivering quiet praise to the underdog in all of us.  The new album also features the playful lead single, “I’m To Blame,” which is climbing the country radio charts now.
