Moore debuts new single on Fallon
Monday, March 18, 2013
– Kip Moore will perform his brand new single Hey Pretty Girl
on Late Night With Jimmy Fallon tonight.
Moore's visit will mark the TV debut for the song. The song follows two number one hits from his debut album "Up All Night" (Somethin' 'But a Truck and Beer Money) and is his fasting rising single to date already in the Top 25.
The show is also exclusively premiering the music video for the song.
Later this week, Moore will play to sold-out crowds at Webster Hall in New York on Thurs., March 21, the University of Rhode Island on Friday and Boston on Saturday where his show at House Of Blues blew through over 2000 tickets in 20 minutes.
Moore has played six sold-out shows since the beginning of the year including a record-breaking stop at the Intersection in Grand Rapids, Mich. and has upcoming sell outs in Denver, Salt Lake City, Los Angeles, San Diego, Boise, Idaho and is the first country artist to ever sell-out The Knitting Factory in Reno, Nev. In between his own headlining dates, Moore is opening for Brantley Gilbert this spring and will join Toby Keith on his summer tour.

Up All Night
Kip Moore's debut, "Up All Night" may be out now, but he is no newbie. He wrote two songs on Thompson Square's debut before surfacing with his singleMary Was the Marrying Kind. Kiefer Thompson returned the favor by co-writing the opener Drive Me Crazy, a teenage romance number with infectious melody.
Moore said he thinks fans still have a lot to learn about him and the depth of "Up All Night." "They'll be surprised from the single. It's a very emotional record. »»»
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: Watkins steps out on his own
At the ripe old age of 39, Sean Watkins is doing things a bit differently when it comes to his music. By far the biggest sign is that he is in the midst of his first ever solo headlining tour.
That may seem a bit odd almost after having released four solo albums since 2001.
But when you have your main gig being in the trio Nickel Creek, pus other... »»»
Concert Review: No surprise, Jackson and friends still Keepin' It Country
Alan Jackson calling his current tour Keepin' It County reads like one of those 'no duh' statements because the Georgia born singer/songwriter has always kept his music traditional - even in the face of the continuing rock and pop-ization of contemporary country music. But keep it country he did once again for a sold out audience on the... »»»

Some in the mainstream country audience may only know Angaleena Presley as one of the two other
singers in Miranda Lambert's side group, Pistol Annies. But to view Presley in only that limited light would be selling her severely short. For starters, Pistol Annies is a trio of extra strong female country music writers and by no means merely Lambert's side group.... »»»
Jorma Kaukonen has reached that stage in life where any break he takes is well earned and completely deserved. The 74-year-old singer/songwriter is a Rock and Roll Hall of Fame inductee for his work with Jefferson Airplane and his solo career has kept him busy - and fans deliriously happy - for an astonishing 41 years when he's not sometimes playing with Hot Tuna.... »»»
The last time Kenny Roby assembled 6 String Drag to record a new studio album, Bill Clinton had just handily secured his second term as president. That album was 1997's acclaimed "High Hat," and within months of its release, 6SD had dissolved, sadly capping a brief Americana/roots rock run that had seemed so promising after their brilliant 1994 self-titled debut...... »»»
All These Dreams
The sophomore slump is no match for Andrew Combs. Somehow the Texas-born, Nashville-residing singer-songwriter packs it all into his second full-length, "All These Dreams," in a way that every track stands out on its own and no listener can go without finding at least one tune that fits their preference. Rock, country and folk meld together »»»
