Moore goes "Underground"
Tuesday, October 18, 2016
– Kip Moore will release a five-song EP, "Underground," on Oct. 28.
Moore had a hand in writing all five songs with three recorded live during tours.
"The problem I often face is leaving behind some songs, because I never stop writing," said Moore. "I write so many that some never see the light of day. I've been working on a full record, which looks to be coming out in late spring, but everywhere we go the fans keep asking for the recordings of these underground songs that they've been hearing for the last few years. 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. These songs are completely separate from the new record I've been making, I simply made this EP for the true fans."
The track list is:
1. All Time Low
(Kip Moore, Westin Davis, Luke Dick)
2. My Kind
(Kip Moore, Erik Dylan, Justin Weaver)
3. Midnight Slow Dance (Live)
(Kip Moore, Mike Elizondo, Dan Couch)
4. Separate Ways (Live)
(Kip Moore, Jordyn Mallory, Dan Couch)
5. My Baby's Gone (Live)
(Kip Moore, William Rinehart, Nathaniel Rinehart)
The EP follows the release of Moore's sophomore album "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.

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. »»»
Concert Review: Guthrie brings welcome vibe of sweetness
Before launching into "This Land is Your Land," Arlo Guthrie recalled how his father taught him this song when he was just eight or nine.
