Signed to Universal Music Group, Kip Moore is an up-and-coming country sensation. Hailing from Tifton, GA, Moore’s style wasinfluenced by Bruce Springsteen, Tom Petty, and Kris Kristofferson. He moved to Nashville after a brief stint in Hawaii, when a good friend encouraged him to take up songwriting full time.
Moore’s raw and rustic voice combines with compelling lyrics of honesty to create a unique sound that's simultaneously hypnotic and edgy. He paired up with songwriter Brett James, who produced his debut album, Drive Me Crazy. His first single, “Mary Was The Marrying Kind” gained him a lot of deserved attention and“Somethin Bout A Truck”, Moore’s second single, is currently in the top 30 on the charts and climbing.
