Nashville, TN – Aug. 11, 2017 – Multi-PLATINUM singer/songwriter Kip Moore announced today that he will hit the road this fall for his headlining PLEAD THE FIFTH TOUR, kicking off on Oct. 19 in Bowling Green, OH. Moore, who has trail-blazed his own path with his reputation-making live show, also revealed a stacked lineup announcing that Drake White and Jordan Davis will join him on the dates. Tickets for the must-see tour will go on sale on Aug. 18 at 10am CT here.
“Our live show has been such a focus for me and the band for many years,” said Moore. “We are constantly woodshedding and trying to come up with new ways to engage the loyal fan base we’ve developed such a bond with. I’ve always felt Drake is cut from the same cloth and his focus has always seemed to be on the things that matter. We’ve been talking about touring for years and we’re finally going to get that chance. It’ll be a blast to see what we come up with, and also see Jordan Davis build his fan base out here with us.”
Moore is also currently gearing up for the release of his highly-anticipated third studio album SLOWHEART (Sept. 8) available for pre-order now, and exclusively premiered the futuristic and concept-driven music video for “The Bull” on Billboard, available to watch here.

ABOUT KIP MOORE:
Multi-PLATINUM singer/songwriter Kip Moore’s upcoming third studio album on MCA Nashville, SLOWHEART will be released on Sept. 8. Having navigated the path from the staggering success of the release of his smash-hit and recently certified PLATINUM debut album UP ALL NIGHT which also spawned three No. One hit singles, to the resounding critical acclaim that followed with his sophomore offering, WILD ONES heralded as “an impressively singular release from Music Row” by The Guardian, Moore has hit his stride with SLOWHEART. He co-wrote 11 out of 13 tracks, and was the sole producer on seven of the tracks, as well as co-producing five more on the collection that is “between the rough edges of Americana, rock and the evocative storytelling of country, produced to let every guitar lick ring true and every edge and wail of Moore’s voice reverberate raw but strong” (Rolling Stone). Co-written by Moore, his current Top 15 single “More Girls Like You,” is the fastest rising single of his career so far and is receiving praise from critics such as Entertainment Weekly declaring he “has made a name for himself weaving vignettes of Southern, blue-collar life and love into rollicking country anthems.” Following an extended break, Moore is back out on the road playing some of country music’s biggest festivals this year, as well as his recently announced headlining PLEAD THE FIFTH TOUR kicking off on 10/19 and headlining dates in U.K this fall stopping in Birmingham, UK (10/2), Manchester, UK (10/3), Glasgow, UK (10/4) and culminating in a special show as part of Country Music Week in London, UK at O2 Shepherd’s Bush Empire on 10/6. Moore will also return to Ireland later this summer for Harvest 2017, stopping in Westport, IE (8/26) and Enniskillen, IE (8/27.)
