ABOUT Kip Moore:

“I’m To Blame,” the lead single from MCA Nashville recording artist Kip Moore’s upcoming sophomore album, is steadily climbing the radio charts and has already become a fan favorite during Moore’s live shows. Currently gearing up to head out on the road on Dierks Bentley’s 2015 Sounds Of Summer Tour, the singer-songwriter has earned critical acclaim for his “high energy” (Rolling Stone) live show with Chicago Sun Times heralding him as “carving his own niche in country music…that sets him apart from the flock of country music rockers.” Named American Country Countdown Award’s “Breakthrough Artist Of The Year,” Moore earned PLATINUM certification for his No. One smash hit “Hey Pretty Girl,” and DOUBLE PLATINUM status for his chart-topping breakout hit “Somethin’ ‘Bout A Truck.” For the latest updates, visit
