– Kip Moore will headline the CMT on Tour 2014: Up in Smoke this fall.
The tour starts on Sept. 25 in New York and will hit more than 20 cities through November, ending in Boston on Nov. 21.
Moore tapped newcomers Charlie Worsham and Sam Hunt to open. Tickets go on sale this Friday, June 6.
"We've been on the road pretty much non-stop for the past four years playing as much as we can wherever we can," said Moore. "When we started out sometimes there would only be five people at a show and seeing the crowds grow over the years is really humbling and encouraging. And now to be teaming up with CMT for a tour is a really exciting moment in my career. We'll definitely be playing lots of songs from the new album out on the road so it will be fun to test those out and see what the fans think."
"Kip's "Up All Night" album swept us away with an edge and swagger that put him in a class of his own, coupled with three back-to-back number one singles," said Leslie Fram, SVP of Music Strategy, CMT. "The rest of the story is happening now, and we're proud to have him headline our 13th annual CMT On Tour, along with CMT Listen Up artist Charlie Worsham and hot newcomer Sam Hunt."
Moore has been working on a sophomore release. He released "Young Love" as the first single, which reached 26 on the Billboard Hot Country Songs chart. "Dirt Road" is the current single.
