Kip Moore Stops Show to Join Rowdy Fans
Kip Moore made a bold move during a recent show in Ridgefield, Wash., and thankfully, it paid off. The 'Hey Pretty Girl' singer stopped his concert when he realized some of his rowdiest fans were being stopped by security from getting too close to the stage, and instead jumped down to join them.
"I had a moment during the middle of my set where I just decided to stop playing and said I wouldn't finish 'til all the crazy fans in the back were allowed closer to the stage," he recalls. "I honestly don't know what I was thinking, and looking back it probably was a dumb move cause it could've easily backfired, but they were energizing me so much, so I just went for it … and it worked! It was the wildest Sunday night show ever!"
The fans ended up bypassing the barricades, and enjoyed the rest of the show up close and personal with their favorite star.
The 33-year-old is juggling his time on the road, opening for Toby Keith on his Hammer Down tour, with working on a new set of tunes, which he hints will be unlike his debut album, 'Up All Night.'
"It’s definitely gonna be a different record than the first," he tells Taste of Country. "I think the first record was -- once you got past ‘Somethin’ ‘Bout a Truck’ and ‘Beer Money’ -- actually kind of a very vibey, chill record. It was a very nostalgic record. A lot of looking back on things, where this next record is more in the present. The titles are more in the present. The feeling of it is in the present."
Moore will head to Illinois, Iowa and Kentucky this week. See all of his upcoming shows here.
