Kip Moore's Friday night (Oct. 17) concert at Nashville's Ryman Auditorium is a night he's not likely to forget anytime soon. The singer performed before a sold-out crowd as part of his headlining CMT on Tour: Up in Smoke.

Moore sang several of his biggest hits, including 'Somethin' 'Bout a Truck,' 'Beer Money,' 'Mary Was the Marrying Kind' and 'Hey Pretty Girl,' among others. He also expertly delivered a few covers, such as Ben E. King's 'Stand by Me' and Kris Kristofferson's 'Sunday Morning Coming Down,' and invited songstress Jewel to join him on a brand-new song, 'Separate Ways.'

The Georgia native, who has previously opened for some of country music's biggest acts, including Tim McGraw, Lady Antebellum and Toby Keith, was ready to embrace headliner status.

“We’ve been on the road pretty much non-stop for the past four years, playing as much as we can wherever we can,” Moore says. “When we started out, sometimes there would only be five people at a show, and seeing the crowds grow over the years is really humbling and encouraging. And now, to be teaming up with CMT for a tour is a really exciting moment in my career. We’ll definitely be playing lots of songs from the new album out on the road, so it will be fun to test those out and see what the fans think.”

Moore is joined by Sam Hunt and Charlie Worsham, who are serving as his opening acts. His tour will head to Oklahoma and Texas this week. See a list of his upcoming shows here.
