Kip Moore’s Debut Album ‘Up All Night’ Set to Hit Stores April 24
Kip Moore‘s fans just can’t seem to get enough of his latest Top 20 single, ‘Somethin’ ‘Bout a Truck.’ Well, they better get ready for even more tunes from the charming newcomer, as his debut album ‘Up All Night’ is being released on Tuesday, April 24.
“That record is nine years of good times … and a lot of agony,” Moore tells Taste of Country with a grin. “I think there’s a lot of different emotions in that one record. My hope is that it’s going to move people to feel something when they listen to it, and it’s not just a fun record or whatever. It’s got all kinds of different emotions. I’ve poured every ounce of heart and soul into this record. Like I said, it’s been nine years in the process of making it, so I’m more excited about that record coming out than anything. I cannot wait for people to get their hands on it. I’m hoping it does what I think it can maybe do.”
Moore says some of the emotions he poured into his new album come from the “crazy struggle” in Nashville, trying to get a foothold in the always unpredictable music business. “I’ve been kicked in the teeth for a long, long time,” he says. “You learn to get real tough skin and get used to hearing no.”
But his hard work and determination to succeed definitely paid off in the recent years. “When you hear ‘yes,’ it’s like ‘What?! This is working?!’” he laughs. “It’s wild. It has strengthened my faith a whole lot … just having strength in myself and what I believe in. Now things are starting to look up. It’s been a wild, wild journey for me. I started having other people record my songs, and now my song’s working. It’s the strangest thing to walk into a club and sing a song that people are singing it, and you’re not singing ‘Margaritaville,’ you know what I mean? It’s like this is something I wrote. It’s a humbling, humbling thing.”
“I just want to be able to do this for a long, long time,” he continues. “That’s my ultimate goal, is to be able to play music for the next 20 or 30 years and people buy records and love what I do and support my career and give me a chance to do this.”
