Video Premiere: Kip Moore, “Young Love”

Kip Moore

We all know that Kip Moore had a big year in 2013, but expect him to make an even bigger name for himself in 2014. I personally just cannot get enough of his raspy yet smooth vocals; he’s one of my new favorite country voices.

After great success with “Somethin’ ‘Bout A Truck,” “Beer Money” and “Hey Pretty Girl,” the ACM “New Artist of the Year” finalist recently released his latest single, “Young Love.”

With the song currently climbing the charts, CMT and iHeartRadio premiered the music video yesterday.

REVIEW: Dierks Bentley Makes A Pit Stop in NYC for IHeartRadio

JP2_8049

The whirling dervish that is the Dierks Bentley promo tour for his new album Home made a quick pit stop in NYC yesterday for some lucky IHeartRadio contest winners.  Dierks played a full show on Wednesday at the Bowery Ballroom but Monday night’s 10 song, 45 minute set was a nice appetizer.  The tiny P.C. Richards Theater on the ground floor of the Clear Channel building was packed with lots of Dierks’ faithful fans – and they were not disappointed.  Calling NYC the pulse of this country and bantering about talking country music with a man from Kentucky over breakfast in the Big Apple, Dierks Bentley knows that NYC knows country music!  The showcase highlighted some of the new tracks including 5-1-5-0, a Van Halen inspired track, the title track Home, and When You Gonna Come Around featuring Karen Fairchild from Little Big Town which is a sweet, romantic, country ballad.  Mrs. Fairchild was not in attendance last night but the song held up just fine as a solo number too.  The fan favorites were peppered in as well.  The audience was participating for Feel the Fire and What Was I Thinking.  But when Dierks came down off the stage and into the crowd for Sideways the fan love soared!  My personal favorite of the night was Up On The Ridge, the title track from Dierks’ previous album.  It may have been because Brooklyn’s own Punch Brothers played on the album track or it may have been because it is an awesome song. But any which way you cut it last night made me proud to be from NYCountry.

This review was written by a guest writer, Erin Kamenitz, who attended the show on behalf of Keepin’ It Country Blog.
