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: Hurray for the Riff: more than just a great name
Hurray for the Riff Raff is one well-named group. Not that it signifies all that much musically, but at least it's catchy and makes you want to root for the underdog. With a lot to live up moniker wise, the band in concert - which, in reality, is lead singer Alynda Lee Segarra from New Orleans and her backing mates - more than lived up to the "pressure.... »»»
Concert Review: Carolina Chocolate Drops easily weather changes
The personnel in the Carolina Chocolate Drops may have changed drastically over the last few years - two of its three founding members are no longer - but that apparently has not had any impact whatsoever on the group both when it comes to the musical direction and the ability to come through in concert.

Expectations of being a "Carter Girl" - the way Carlene Carter refers to herself with her latest album title - must be extremely daunting at times. "It's as difficult as you want to make it," Carter explains. "I've always just embraced the fact that I was born into this family and very proud to be part of it." However, much like her mother, June Carter Cash, Carlene has always been a free spirit and fiercely individualistic.
To take a page from Judy Collins' notebook, Lydia Loveless has seen life from both sides now. After a childhood in tiny Coshocton, Ohio, a move to Columbus and a gig playing bass in her family's new wave/rock band as a teenager, Loveless set out on her own musical path at the age of 17. In 2010, the 20-year-old Loveless released her debut album, "The Only Man," which was critically acclaimed but just barely heard by the general public.... »»»
Turn It Up
Josh Thompson's sophomore release, "Turn It Up" is his first on Toby Keith's Show Dog label. It seems to be a good match because both artists are cut from the same cloth. Thompson is also known as a champion of the everyman. Turns out they both have the same tendency to go over the top. Thompson excessively showcases the blue collar lifestyle the way Keith champions patriotism. »»»
