Moore announces Dive Bar Tour
Monday, July 22, 2019
– Kip Moore said he will play the six-date Bud Light Dive Bar Tour today.
The series is known for bringing sell-out artists to intimate dive bar stages. The exclusive run will kick-off in Detroit on Aug. 15 and fans can only win tickets beginning today, July 22nd through radio contesting, social media promotion and giveaways.
Moore also said he will continue the Room to Spare: Acoustic Tour for a third leg, following two previously sold-out runs meeting capacity crowds at every stop in the U.S., Canada and The U.K.
Tucker Beathard, Devin Dawson and Kylie Morgan will open shows on select dates, with the run set to begin in Grand Rapids, Mich. on Oct. 10. Tickets will go on sale beginning July 26 at 10 a.m. local time.
"Connecting with people through our live show brings me pure joy," said Moore. "I'm really looking forward to the Bud Light Dive Bar dates as it will take us back to where we started and where our journey began. It also gives us the opportunity to get a little wild with the show. Then we'll be able to strip it back down this fall with the next leg of acoustic dates. The rapport we've felt with the crowds through the acoustic shows has been really special, and I'm so glad the fans are enjoying it, and we get to bring it to even more cities."

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.
Thankfully, things get better as »»»
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. »»»
Concert Review: For Brooks and fans, a most unusual change of pace
To say that this was a change of pace for Garth Brooks - not to mention his fans - would be an understatement of the highest degree. Brooks all but begged during the show to be playing next door at Gillette Stadium where the New England Patriots play.
But, alas, Brooks exuded joy and excitement at the chance to play before about 500 people at a club,... »»»
Concert Review: LBT proves more than capable
If you have seen Little Big Town in the last decade, it could have been anywhere from a B stage at a Rib Fest to a 20,000-seat amphitheater as the opener for some of country's top acts. Their current "Nightfall" tour rightfully proves they are more than capable and well deserved being billed as a top headlining act.... »»»
