Kip Moore is known for some of his adventurous escapades, such as rock climbing and underwater sea diving. But, every now and then his curiosity gets the best of him, at least for a moment. He recalls one activity where he instantly wondered what he had gotten himself into.
“This past winter, I went paddling out at Ho'okipa on a big day in Maui on the north side,” he recalled to Billboard. “I am a decent surfer. I do it when I can, but I’ve never really had the chance to live around it, but I take trips to do it. I can get down a little bit, but that was a little out of my league on this particular day, so just to paddle out and to see how big the swells were coming in, I thought ‘What in the world have I gotten myself into?’ Once I got on one of them and rode it to the end, it was probably one of the most thrilling moments of my life.”
Still, the Georgia native doesn't plan on giving up his day job for a professional career on the beach. This Friday (September 8), the singer released Slowheart, his third studio album, which he feels is most representative of where he is right now: “I feel this my strongest body of work that I’ve had from top to bottom. The melodies are the strongest, and the more you live with the songs, the more your favorites change and they take on a new meaning. I feel like sonically, it’s by far the biggest and most lush sound I’ve had, too.”
