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.

Wild Ones CD review - Wild Ones

Up All Night CD review - 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: For McCoury, Grisman, music still matters – One condenser microphone, a music stand, a mandolin, rhythm guitar and more than 100 years of bluegrass experience: that's all David Grisman and Del McCoury need to put on a show. It's quite a show, too. The artists' backstories are well known: McCoury was a logger in Lancaster County, Pa., who came to New York City to see Bill... »»»
Concert Review: Ely wears well – Joe Ely is the prototypical rambler. It comes through in his music and in his life. There are lots of elements in the music about travels, riding the rails, small town scenery and getting away from it. In fact, after playing "I'm Gonna Strangle You Shorty" as the first song of his encore, Ely opined, "The only thing I got out of... »»»

I'm Comin' Over CD review - I'm Comin' Over
Chris Young has enjoyed steady success from his previous four releases, and there's no reason to suggest that "I'm Comin' Over" won't do the same. But that doesn't mean that Young is doing anything all that different from what's au courant. Young's go to has always been his full-sounding, big-bodied voice, and that remains intact here throughout these 11 songs, 9 of which he had a hand in writing. »»»
