Kip Moore is making sure he keeps himself grounded by continuing to live as simply as possible. He has opted not to put down roots in Nashville or anywhere else for that matter.
He tells us he chooses to stay hungry and focused on the goal, and part of doing that is technically remaining homeless. “I’m crashing right now at my publishing house studio. It’s a tiny little room, and I’m (in Nashville) one or two days a week. And I think it drives my manager more crazy than it does anybody else. He’s like, ‘Man, let’s get you a place.’ I’m like, ‘I don’t need that right now.’ I’ll be honest – I’ve been writing like crazy for this new record, and part of me likes having that. My hot showers come when I go on the road. The studio building, the shower is a cold shower, so I’ll take cold showers in the morning. It might sound crazy, but it keeps my edge. It keeps me from getting comfortable, and that’s where I’m going to try to stay as long as I can for at least the next couple of years, because these are crucial years of building this thing, and I’m gonna have a lifetime of material from these times. So, I’m not comfortable living in a tiny little room. I’ve just got all my stuff crammed in there; I take cold showers. It keeps me wanting more.”
Kip is making his way up the country charts with his latest single, “Hey, Pretty Girl.” His previous two singles — “Somethin’ ‘Bout A Truck” and “Beer Money” have topped the country charts.
