Eric Church’s headlining country set at the Maverik Center will open with two talented Moores of no relation — Kip Moore and Justin Moore. While Justin has delivered hits such as "If Heaven Wasn’t So Far Away," Kip is having a break-out year, and is making his first stop in Utah this weekend.
Kip grew up in tiny Tifton, Georgia, "one of those towns were you had to create a good time," he said.
Kip first landed in Nashville as a songwriter, penning hits for other artists, until releasing his debut album "Up All Night" in April.
He immediately scored a No. 1 hit with "Somethin’ ‘Bout a Truck," which he wrote with co-writer Dan Couch after what Kip called a particular "s____y" day of songwriting.
As Couch was leaving for the night, Moore said he started riffing on the guitar with that line, and Couch perked up, and then they sat down and wrote the song in about 90 minutes. "I did it the wild way," Kip said.
