Kip Moore Proud to Take a Stand Against Ticket Scalpers

Kip Moore

Recently, Kip Moore has taken a stand against ticket scalpers…You know, those horrible human beings who snatch-up the best seats at our favorite shows then turn around and sell them for double or triple the price… Kip feels so strongly he even invited a scalper to one of his shows to talk things over man to man. Unfortunately, the fight between artists/fans and scalpers is gonna take more than just one or two angry people to make a difference.

“It’s probably a pointless fight, to be honest,” Kip said at a recent event in Nashville. “I just can’t sit back and watch people get taken advantage of. When you fight so hard to build a fan base, and they’ve stuck with you through the trenches. All of a sudden when you gain success you’re just supposed to just clip their legs out from underneath them, and I can’t do that. So I’m still trying to make it affordable, and then these scalpers they have means and access to get tickets so much faster than other people, and then they’re just using me and using the system.”

“I understand that it’s legal, but that doesn’t mean that it’s right.”

We couldn’t agree more. If only more artists took a stand like Kip Moore and Eric Church to make sure their fans go the best seats in the house for the best price.

Sony Music Masterworks announces the signing of Emily West to the Portrait imprint. The powerhouse vocalist and songwriter was a finalist on Season 9 of NBC’s “America’s Got Talent.”

West will release a two-track digital single on December 2nd featuring her sultry cover of Sia’s “Chandelier” which brought the AGT audience to their feet, along with the Christmas favorite “Santa Baby.” Her debut full-length album will be released in Spring 2015.

“As America has already seen, Emily West is an exceptional talent with a bright career ahead of her,” says Chuck Mitchell, SVP, Sony Music Masterworks, U.S., “Her appearances on AGT have already defined her as an important new interpreter of great songs both new and classic, and she’s equally impressive on her own material. We’re delighted to be helping her launch this new phase of her recording career.”

West moved to Nashville at 18 with a dream to tell stories through song. A musical maverick in the masquerade of pin-up perfection, West dazzled audiences throughout the season transforming iconic hits like “Nights In White Satin” by the Moody Blues and “You Got It” by Roy Orbison into grand ballads, both of which will be included on the new album.

Dierks Bentley Making Whiskey Row a Chain

Dierks Bentley‘s bar and entertainment venue Whiskey Row is soon to be a chain. The first location opened in his hometown of Scottsdale, Arizona in 2013. The bar boasts 40 different types of whiskey, a 360 degree stage for live entertainment, a 24 foot TV, iPhone and USB charging stations at the bar, plus premiere booths feature three different beer taps and a liquor tap, which will allow guests to pour their own beer and shots right at their table with no waiting along with local produce and food fair.

“I love doing Whiskey Row,” says Dierks. “It’s just fun having a bar that kind of represents the current state of country music, a really current hip kind of place that young college kids love to go cause it feels hip and cool. So I feel like that’s a niche and it’s fun to be part of that.”

According to Nash FM, there’s no timeline for the Chicago and Tempe, Arizona locations, but its most likely late 2015.
