Kip Moore, is enjoying sucess with his popular single "Something Bout a Truck". Kip explained: "I learned about life and relationships with a truck,.
He came to Nashville in a truck (a black Nissan) in 2004. Now Moore has a gold-selling hit (No. 4 on USA TODAY's country airplay charts) called Somethin' 'Bout a Truck, "Trucks are changing my life and giving me an opportunity to do what I want to do, which is music. They've given me a career." Said Kip.
Moore also explained he associates a truck, a 1988Chevrolet Silverado, with the blue-collar rock and classic country music his father played for him, the music Moore draws from for his first album, Up All Night. The album made its debut at No. 3 on Billboard's country albums chart and has sold 58,000 copies in two weeks.
"I looked up to him so much," says Moore, 32, of his dad, who passed away last year. "Whatever he liked, I liked. He was a fanatic for (Kris Kristofferson's) Sunday Morning Coming Down— he thought that was the best-written song ever. Bob Seger was his favorite. And (Bruce) Springsteen. If they were cool to him, they had to be cool."
Those musicians were all he listened to, "even before I could understand what the lyrics were about, because I hadn't lived enough life. Once I had, I rediscovered those guys and found out how powerful those songs were."Moore once borrowed the Silverado for a date that wound up being the inspiration for his hit single.
Moore is touring as a support act for BillyCurrington "Billy's a total pro," Moore says of the singer. "You can learn so much just from watching his show. He's super-gracious with me. I couldn't have asked for a better first tour to be on. They've all been packed houses, so it's fun."
