Kip Moore is back on the charts with his second single.
Kip is just a country boy with a love for the simple things – trucks, beers, and working hard. That’s the country way of doing things and Kip is singing about it all with Something ‘Bout A Truck. Check it out…
Something ‘Bout A Truck – Kip Moore
For as long as their have been country roads way out in the middle of nowhere there have been kids driving on them and parking to have a little fun. There really is something ’bout a truck, a couple beers, and a girl. It’s been part of how country life works and it probably always will be.
Kip Moore had a charting single earlier this year with Mary Was The Marrying Kind. The song had quite a bit of buzz surrounding it and I thought it was going to chart higher than #45. Things didn’t work out for whatever reason with that song, but Kip kept on working and now he’s got another track to potentially make its way up the singles chart.
Something ‘Bout A Truck is the new song. It’s got this really cool groove to it. Kip’s voice starts out down low. He’s rolling through the lyrics with this snarl, but the song doesn’t have a negative tone at all. This song is all about the good things in life including trucks, beer, creeks, country roads, and girls. And really…those are some pretty good things. For good old country boys there is nothing better.
I’m not sure how well Something ‘Bout A Truck will do at radio. It’s hard for new artists to find that record that is different enough to get attention. This track sure does sound a little different. It’s tough, though, to find new topics. Trucks and girls have been the topic of songs forever and from just about every country artist. And because the topic is so popular it’s really important for an artist to find some good melodies and music to go along with their own spin on the tales of girls and guys. I think Kip has done that just fine with Something ‘Bout A Truck.
There is a rocking side to this song. The electric guitar is there in the background growling down low and setting the tone. Kip’s voice has this graveling sound to it as well. It’s a little rough around the edges, but that’s how country should be sometimes.
It’s obvious that Kip has the talent to become successful in country music. Something ‘Bout A Truck could be the song that gets him even more attention. I think the song will chart and find Kip some more fans. From there I’m hoping he has another song up his sleeve to hopefully help him break out into the top 20 or even top 10. You never know.
What do you think about the song and Kip’s career?
Will he become a country star someday?
