Kip Moore, ‘Beer Money’ Says Somethin’ ‘Bout Small-Town America
Not everyone is worried about having enough cash for Christmas gifts this year. Kip Moore‘s latest single, the follow-up to his No. 1 hit “Somethin’ ‘Bout a Truck,” details another kind of financial pursuit, namely the need for “Beer Money.” Kip, who grew up in Georgia and went to college in Alabama, explains that the song details a major part of his young adulthood and the lives of many people he has known.
“It’s a signature thing for small-town America,” he says, “and what I think small-town America is, and people working the 9 to 5 jobs … saving just enough to kind of escape from those jobs for the weekend. They’ve got to have their ‘Beer Money’ to do it. And you want to go out and blow it out and have a good time.”
Country fans are obviously connecting with the tune. It’s currently among the 10 most-played songs at country radio and nearing the Top 10 on the sales chart, too. Kip wrote the tune with Blair Daly and Troy Verges.
Kip is currently on the road with Eric Church and the Blood, Sweat and Beers tour. The trek will stop in Charlotte, N.C., on Thursday (Nov. 28) and Duluth, Ga., on Nov. 29. Keep track of upcoming dates here.
Kip will also participate in the American Country Awards, airing on FOX, from Las Vegas, Dec. 10 at 8:00 PM. He is nominated for three awards including Best New Artist.
