Kip Moore raised a glass to his online fans during his Billboard Live At-Home performance Thursday (June 4) that raised money for the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People (NAACP), which has been fighting for justice for Black Americans since 1909.
He sipped on his whiskey on the rocks intermittently throughout the daytime set, as his dark liquor collection remained on full display behind him. He called for a celebratory occasion because of all the love the 40-year-old country singer received for his fourth studio album Wild World, which he released May 29.
“I appreciate all of the kind words that everybody’s been shooting my way about the record. You write these songs in a vacuum and you don’t know how people are going to feel about them. And I had time to live with this record a long time before you guys heard it, ride around with it, see how it felt about it, go back and remix it and change the songs up,” he acknowledged about the recording process. “So to have you guys responding the way that you have has been pretty amazing. I don’t know if I’ve ever had a record received like this across the board.”
He started off with the first song on the album, “Janie Blue,” before performing “South,” “More Than Enough” and “Fire and Flame” on his acoustic guitar.
