Kip Moore, Dan + Shay and More Share Awkward, Hilarious First Kiss Stories

Subscribe to Taste of Country on

Some were awkward, some were sweet, some were terrifying … and some stories were simply nauseating! With Valentine’s Day on the horizon, Taste of Country asked over a dozen different country artists to share their first kiss stories. The responses are captured in these videos.

Dan + Shay‘s Shay Mooney’s first kiss involved a bus and a tuba, while Kip Moore‘s first kiss was in a closet and was very, very sloppy. Joe Nichols almost fainted, LoCash‘s Chris Lucas almost threw up, and Lindsay Ell almost married the guy! Okay, that’s not true, but they did date and she does have the sweetest, most storybook story.

All weekend long we’ll be rolling out these funny memories on YouTube and Facebook. The Swon Brothers, Granger Smith, Brooke Eden and former Navy SEAL Pete Scobell are a few others we heard from. Love and Theft‘s stories were alarming, while Smith’s involved Tom Cruise (it isn’t as strange as you think).

These clips were shot during the 2016 Country Radio Seminar, a yearly gathering of industry members and artists in Nashville. First kisses are a universal experience that typically involve sweaty palms, a heavy heartbeat and — in one artist’s case — your best friend’s older sister.

We’d love to hear from you, as well. If you have a memorable first kiss story, tell us all about it in the comments section below!
