LEWISBURG, WV (05/01/2012)(readMedia)– New country sensation Kip Moore will perform following the Buckin B’ Bull Riding event on August 17th during the 2012 State Fair of West Virginia. “When I became aware of his availability, I immediately set the wheels in motion to book Kip as part of our bull ride package. His Somethin’ ‘Bout a Truck single was certified gold on April 24th at the same time that his debut album, Up All Night was released.” stated Marlene Jolliffe, State Fair CEO. “Somethin’ ‘Bout a Truck,” which has sold more than 536,000 units, sits at No. 9 on the country singles charts and ranks No. 9 on Billboard’s Top-Selling Country Digital Songs for First Quarter 2012. The video has received more than 6 million views online.In addition, VEVO has selected him as its “Detected”
developing artist for April. “Detected” is a series presented by bing that highlights rising musicians and bands through exclusive music videos and interviews. VEVO is the world’s leading all-premium music video and entertainment platform. He is the first country artist selected by VEVO for any of its developing artist programming. He wrote or co-wrote every song on his Brett James-produced debut album.

His music combines a raw and rustic voice with compelling lyrics of honesty to create a unique sound that’s simultaneously hypnotic and edgy. His voice is weathered by life’s detours and disappointments and strengthened by his dreams and determination. His music is infused with relentless intensity, both of passion and frustration. The boy who grew up daydreaming about life outside of the small town of Tifton, Ga., became a man who has been continually inspired by Bruce Springsteen and Kris Kristofferson to paint vivid portraits with his lyrics.
