Finally, Moore announces date
Friday, May 29, 2015
– Kip Moore finally has a date for his sophomore CD - Aug. 21 - more than 3 years after a highly successful debut.
"Wild Ones" contains 13 songs with Moore having a hand in writing every one. "'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 was born on the road during soundchecks, dressing rooms and in Moore's bunk at night and recorded during "time off" from playing more than 200 shows a year.
"Lipstick" is a tribute to the road, with each verse rattling off a list of the favorite cities Moore and his band mates have played in the past. "That Was Us" looks back at the archetypal small-town Saturday nights that filled Moore's teenage years in Georgia. The lead single is "I'm To Blame."
The track list is:
1. Wild Ones (Kip Moore, Chris DeStefano, Brett James)
2. Come And Get It (Kip Moore, Brett James, Manny Medina)
3. Girl of Summer (Kip Moore, Troy Verges, Blair Daly)
4. Magic (Kip Moore, Westin Davis, Luke Dick)
5. That Was Us (Kip Moore, Westin Davis, Dan Couch)
6. Lipstick (Kip Moore, Justin Weaver, David Frasier, Westin Davis)
7. What Ya Got On Tonight (Kip Moore, Troy Verges, Blair Daly)
8. Heart's Desire (Kip Moore, Dan Couch, Adam Browder, Erich Wigdahl)
9. Complicated (Kip Moore, Chris DeStefano, Rodney Clawson)
10. I'm To Blame (Kip Moore, Justin Weaver, Westin Davis)
11.That's Alright With Me (Kip Moore, Dan Couch, Luke Dick)
12. Running For You (Kip Moore, Troy Verges, Blair Daly)
13. Comeback Kid (Kip Moore, Erik Dylan, Ross Copperman, Jeff Hyde)
Moore's 2012 debut, "Up All Night," contained 1 number 1 singles ("Somethin' 'Bout a Truck") and \ notched two Platinum certifications with "Hey Pretty Girl" selling more than 1 million and "Somethin' 'Bout A Truck." "Beer Money" went Gold. Moore released "Young Love" as a single in 2013, which reached only 26 on the chart and "Dirt Road" last year, which made it to 35. Neither song is on "Wild Ones."

Room To Spare: The Acoustic Sessions
Kip Moore's greatest musical selling point is his raspy singing voice. Much like Bob Seger long before him, his is a vocal tone that gets your immediate attention every time you hear it. This EP-length project presents Moore in a quieter setting than usual. That distinctive voice is unavoidable, though, whether revved up or tamped down.
The song that stands out most is "It Ain't California," which is introduced with a beautifully twangy electric guitar riff. »»»
If you're one of those people who read CD inserts before listening to the music, Kip Moore starts out with one at least one strike against him on his third album. In the two pages of acknowledgements and thank yous (two pages!) there's this mixed metaphor on thank you number one, which goes out to Jesus: "You continually pull me from the sinking sand. . . I'm out of the woods because of your love." Um, not a lot of sand in the woods, Kip.

Claiming to have too many songs to choose from, Kip Moore's solution to his surplus was to release "Underground," an EP. "Everywhere we go the fans keep asking for the recordings of these underground songs that they've been hearing for the last few years," he said. "They're a passionate fan base so I decided to ask my label if I could record these songs live and give them the raw recordings."
Moore co-wrote all five tracks, which include two studio »»»
Editorial: Walking the talk
When names like Hank Williams, Johnny Cash, Waylon and the Hag are invoked, you're talking hard core country. These are the touchstones of country , the guys who made country music what it was and still is (or maybe can be). When these folks would sing about being down-and-out and the rough-and-tumble, they knew of what they were singing about. Fast forward a few years to the country singers of today. »»»

Sunny Sweeney has gone the big label route and even earned a hit with "From a Table Away," but truth be told, she's better off without the baggage of the bigs, especially given the consistent quality and musical vision that was so clearly and admirably on display on this evening.
