PLATINUM selling singer/songwriter Kip Moore‘s “Hey Pretty Girl” takes the top spot this week on the Mediabase country singles chart, marking his third consecutive No. one. “Hey Pretty Girl” follows the two week chart-topping smash hit “Somethin’ ‘Bout A Truck” and “Beer Money” off UP ALL NIGHT.
Moore’s UP ALL NIGHT was the best selling debut album from any country artist released last year and the first country album released since 2008 to spawn three back to back No. one’s making him only the third artist to do so in the chart’s history.
“It’s wild to me that it’s just been over a year since we put out my first album and we have three No. one songs,” said Moore. “Writing all of these songs and seeing them come to life through the fans’ eyes is humbling to say the least. The support from them and all the great people at radio has left me speechless. I’m almost done with the next album and I can’t wait to let everyone hear some of these new tunes.”
Since the release of UP ALL NIGHT, Moore has been touring the country opening for Eric Church, Brantley Gilbert and Toby Keith in addition to headlining his own shows, sometimes selling out in minutes. From national TV appearances like TODAY, Late Night with Jimmy Fallon, Conan, The Tonight Show with Jay Leno to his first stadium slot as part of CMA Music Festival: Country’s Night to Rock and a photo spread in PEOPLE Country’s “Hottest Guy’s” issue, Moore has captivated a loyal following in both fans and critics.
“A kind of magical cross between the songwriting talents of a Jackson Browne, the grit of a Bruce Springsteen and the twang of a Willie Nelson or Merle Haggard, Moore has taken the top spot when it comes to the title of one of country music’s most promising new stars.” Chicago Sun-Times
“This guy is the real deal.” Entertainment Weekly
“There is fiery, urgent intensity in his voice. His lyrics vibrate with conviction and true grit. Kip Moore is a star.” MusicRow
“…one of the best new vocalists to come down the pike (or, in Moore’s case, Interstate 75) in quite some time.” Billboard
