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.

Lady Antebellum is exclusively debuting the music video for their fast-paced anthem “Long Stretch of Love” across CBS Radio properties today. Its syndicated CBS Radio premiere on all CBS country stations, Radio.com and CBS Local Sports will be followed by placement on other digital platforms including CMT, GAC and VEVO later this week.
“‘Long Stretch’ is how we’ve been opening our set each night on the road this year,” said Lady A’s Dave Haywood. “So, when we went to make this music video, we really wanted to channel the anticipation and excitement we feel listening to the crowd go nuts at that first riff. When the lights go up and the fans go crazy, our adrenaline is pumping and it totally sets the energy level for the whole night.”
Directed by TK McKamy and shot in Nashville late last month, the new video for the “the crisp, pulsating track that highlights Lady A’s knack for memorable song structure” (Billboard) reflects the band’s memorable live performance. The new single continues to leave an impression on critics nationwide, noting “from the time the group hit the stage with ‘Long Stretch of Love,’” they “showed a command and polish that, to paraphrase one of its hits, insured Lady A owned the night” (The Oakland Press) and it “could easily refer to the Nashville trio’s soaring career trajectory” (OC Register).
Lady A will continue their headlining WHEELS UP 2015 TOUR on July 10th in San Diego, CA, followed by stops in Phoenix, AZ (7/11) and Albuquerque, NM (7/12). For more information and a full list of appearances, visit www.ladyantebellum.com.

Things are not looking up for Donald Trump or his Miss USA Pageant.
“The Voice” winner Craig Wayne Boyd, Flo Rida and Natalie Rose have pulled out of performing at the Miss USA pageant following Donald Trump’s remarks about Mexican immigrants.
Trump had said during his presidential campaign announcement last week some Mexican immigrants bring drugs and crime to the U.S. and are rapists. Trump owns the Miss USA pageant. Two judges and the hosts of the pageant have dropped out as well. The Ricky Martin Foundation also has announced it’s pulling a golf tournament from a Trump-owned property.
