Singer-songwriter Kip Moore has first No. 1 single with “Somethin’ ‘Bout a Truck,” which is sitting atop the Billboard Hot Country Songs Chart and the Mediabase/ Country Aircheck chart. “Somethin’ ‘Bout a Truck” reached sales of 500,000 and was certified gold before the April 24 release of Moore’s debut album, Up All Night. The accompanying video has received more than 7 million views online.
It means everything to me as a writer…It’s validation that all of the years that you kept telling yourself to stick to your guns and stick to what you know, that you are on the right path and doing the right thing and doing what you are supposed to do. People called me crazy at first because we wrote four verses before we get to the chorus, but I stuck to my guns and said, ‘This is how I am supposed to write this song.’ For this to go number one and the American public to fall in love with this song, that is validation for how I like to write, and that is with no boundaries.
Fans of Moore and “Truck” can see it performed on Tuesday, May 29 on Fox News Channel’s Fox & Friends. They will also be able to catch him with Tim McGraw on Monday, May 28, at a special Memorial Day concert at New York City’s Beacon Theatre during Fleet Week in remembrance and gratitude for service men and women. The concert will be streamed live via YouTube and to military bases around the world.
Moore will also be at the CMA Music Festival in Nashville on Saturday, June 9, on the Chevrolet Riverfront Stage during the free concerts at Riverside Park. He will also perform an acoustic set at LP Field during the CMA Music Festival’s Nightly Concerts.
