How much “Moore” can I say? Though they’re not related the music of Justin Moore and Kip Moore really took off in 2012. Although Justin has had some hits previously 2012 will be the year remembered for “Till My Last Day” and “If Heaven Wasn’t So Far Away”. He’s always been a great entertainer but being on the Toby Keith tour last year and then coming in with Eric Church this past September brought his music to more fans and Nashville certainly showed their faith in him by having him tour with two of the most exciting shows in country music today. He remains one of the hardest working stage acts in the business and he is and always will be solid country.
Kip Moore was virtually unknown at the beginning of this year but by mid-summer he had his first number one song with his first released single with “Somethin’ ‘Bout a Truck” and just recently with his follow-up that also made it to the top of the country chart, “Beer Money”. Again, he was on the hottest show of this past year, the Eric Church tour and when he went into “Somethin”Bout a Truck” Consol Energy Centre sang along like he’d been visiting Pittsburgh for years.
Both of these guys are solid country, have a great presence on stage and know how to choose hits so it won’t be long before they come back to the “Burgh as headliners themselves. Keep an eye and ear on Kip and Justin…they’re just gettin’ started.
