Kip Moore Spills He’s Avoiding Girls ‘on Purpose’ to Focus on Work
Kip Moore is livin’ the life, with a critically-acclaimed debut album, his first single ‘Somethin’ ‘Bout a Truck’ earning his first-ever Gold status and a spot on Toby Keith‘s 2013 Hammer Down Tour. Although he’s seeing lots of success, Moore is focused on his career more than ever before.
Although many country singers may have taken advantage of the party atmosphere that Vegas offers during the 2013 ACMs, Moore knew before his plane hit the ground that he wouldn’t be ‘Up All Night’ in the entertainment capital of the world. He tells Taste of Country, “I don’t actually get as wild as everybody else in Vegas,” adding, interestingly, that when he’s in a really wild place he actually becomes more reclusive.
Instead, Moore prefers to focus on work, and wants to deliver an emotionally stirring show to his fans. “I think my show is a little bit of a roller coaster. I think it takes you through a lot of highs and lows… you’re definitely going to get your fun-time songs with ‘Somethin’ ‘Bout a Truck’ and then I’m going to really make you feel something with the other songs on the record,” he explains. “I want people to be moved to all different kinds of emotions through a show, not just a linear kind of thing.”
It’s clear that the singer/songwriter has put lots of thought into his music, and it doesn’t leave much time for anything else — even girlfriends. In fact, you can expect that Moore won’t be looking for a woman to say ‘Hey, Pretty Girl‘ to anytime soon, as he says girlfriends are the last thing on his mind. “I actually stay away from that on purpose right now,” he says, adding, “I’m trying to keep all my focus on one thing.”
With the high demand from his sold-out shows and his extreme focus, Moore will continue to be a rising star in the world of country music.
