Kip Moore: New Album that Keeps You "Up All Night"

  • Jun 12, 2012

Anyone who has turned on their radio in the past several months has no doubt had the chance to hear Kip Moore’s single “Somethin’ ‘Bout a Truck”.  It also seems to be a very popular ringtone.   I, for one, was a little bit sick of hearing it, and pessimistic about what else Kip had to offer our ears.  However, I am now a bit obsessed with his album!
 
I expected Moore’s album Up All Night to be full of typical, redneck songs just like his single, but I was proven wrong.  I found myself loving his voice and tone, and how well his voice fit with the many nostalgic, melancholy love songs on the record.  Each one, especially “Drive Me Crazy” (written with Kiefer Thompson of Thompson Square) and “Everything But You”, are chock full of emotion and passionate images.
 
Up All Night includes a bunch of great strong-tempo ballads, contrasting with “Somethin’ ‘Bout a Truck”.  Tracks like the catchy “Beer Money” and “Up All Night” seem to be written for summer evenings and young love, saying “let’s wake the town that never stops sleeping”.  We also get to hear some of Kip’s personal stories set to music, as in “Reckless (Growing Up)”, telling about his journey to his career.  All tracks were co-written by Moore, one of the ‘cuter’ ones and Kip’s lesser-known first single, “Mary Was the Marrying Kind”, having creative lyrics and rhymes.
 
I cannot say after listening to Up All Night that “Somethin’ ‘Bout a Truck” has grown on me one bit.  But I do look forward to the release of Kip Moore’s next single, as ANY of the other tracks on his record will be welcomed to radio!
 
Kip’s been working towards his success in Nashville since 2004.  Catch up with him at kipmoore.net, on Twitter, or on Facebook!
