Kip Moore is 'Up All Night'
Country singer Kip Moore was scheduled to call in the morning to talk about his new CD “Up All Night,” which is being released today.
And he didn't call.
“My cellphone didn’t go off. That’s what I get for staying up so late,” Moore said, not realizing the irony with the title of his new CD. “I think I finally got to bed at 7 a.m. and I didn’t even hear the phone.”
That’s what happens when you’re hustling around the country promoting your debut CD, with the hit song “Somethin’ ‘Bout a Truck,” which has been viewed more than 6 million times on YouTube.
“I need to make it in country music because I really have no Plan B. This is all I wanted to do,” said Moore, who grew up in Tifton, Ga. “I’m excited and I have some uneasiness. I have some fears too. I don’t want to lose this job.”
This is a departure from where Moore was 10 years ago. In one year, he had a basketball scholarship at Wallace State College in Hanceville, Ala., and then received a golf scholarship to Valdosta State University in Valdosta, Ga.
"Basketball was my whole life until I was 20 years old. All I knew was basketball," Moore said. "Then came golf and I thought that's all I wanted to do then."
