Country artist Kip Moore has been a pretty busy guy this week.

MCA Nashville artist Kip Moore is pretty excited over the release of his debut album “Up All Night” today. The singer-songwriter wrote every track on the album,  and his debut single “Somethin’ ‘Bout A Truck” was also certified gold by the RIAA for selling over 500,000 copies alone. The Georgia small-town native captured his experiences in his first album, which has so far recieved rave reviews from critics around the country music world. Kip is currently out on tour with Billy Currington and David Nail.

Before you read our exclusive interview with Kip below, check out his video he sent us thanking his fans for their support:

We had the chance to ask Kip a few questions about what fans can expect from the release, how excited he really, really is, what convinced him to live in Hawaii with just a backpack, and what song on the radio he wish he wrote. Get to know Kip Moore in our exclusive interview with the singer below:

Kip Moore Celebrates Gold Record

Kip Moore.

It’s a big day for MCA Nashville artist Kip Moore. His debut album “Up All Night” is out today, and he’s celebrating the gold certification of his debut single “Somethin’ ‘Bout A Truck”! It’s a little bit overwhelming for the singer-songwriter, who isn’t quite sure what to say about how big of a moment it is for him:

“I can’t quite wrap my head around what that means,” Moore says of his first gold record. “I had hopes, but I had no expectations, and those are two different things. It caught me off guard because a lot of people have mentioned to me how different the song is as far as its format, having four verses before the chorus. I’m so grateful to my friends at country radio for taking a chance on this song. To see this happening is just a humbling, humbling feeling.”

His single has sold more than 536,000 units alone, and is currently sitting at number nine on the country singles charts and number nine on Billboard’s Top Selling Country Digital Songs for First Quarter 2012. It’s been in the Soundscan Top 10 Digital Core Country Chart for eight consecutive weeks, and the music video has received more than 6 million views on YouTube.

Kip wrote or co-wrote every song on his Brett James-produced debut album.

“I am so ready for Wednesday to roll around!” he jokes about his nervousness. “But I am so excited. It’s really going to throw people for a loop when they get the record. They might have a perception in mind of what it’s going to be because of ‘Somethin’ ‘Bout a Truck,’ and I am anxious to see what they think when they hear the depth of this record.”

Kip is currently out on the road with Billy Currington and David Nail. His next tour stop is April 26th at the Salem Civic Center.
