Moore runs with new single
Thursday, October 8, 2015
– Kip Moore revealed today that "Running For You" will be the second single from his sophomore album "Wild Ones."
Co-written by Moore, Blair Daly and Troy Verges, the track is available at country radio on Monday.
Moore's single comes hot on the heels of his headlining 2015 Wild Ones Tour, launching tonight in Bethlehem, Pa. Moore has sold out dates in Boston, London, Canada, Toronto and a two night run in Chicago.
"Just because a relationship doesn't work out the way you hoped it would, it doesn't mean you can't wish that person all the best and that's what I was drawing on in this song," said Moore. "Whenever we've played 'Running For You' in our set it always feels like a real 'moment.' We've had a couple weeks of downtime since our summer run, and honestly we're already just itching to get back out there, and I'm looking forward to doing what we do on stage."

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 ...
