Like many artists, Kip Moore moved to Nashville with dreams of musical success. Eight years of dues-paying later — including breaks co-writing songs for other artists like Thompson Square and Jake Owen — Moore has notched two No. 1 country songs, “Beer Money” and “Somethin’ ’Bout a Truck” from “Up All Night,” the best-selling country debut album of 2012. A third single, “Hey Pretty Girl,” is currently working its way up the charts.
