MCA Nashville singer-songwriter Kip Moore is celebrating the gold certification of his single, “Somethin’ ‘Bout a Truck,” as he releases his debut album, Up All Night, today.
“I can’t quite wrap my head around what that means,” Moore says of his first gold record. “I had hopes, but I had no expectations, and those are two different things.
“It caught me off guard because a lot of people have mentioned to me how different the song is as far as its format, having four verses before the chorus. I’m so grateful to my friends at country radio for taking a chance on this song. To see this happening is just a humbling, humbling feeling.”
“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. It has been in the SoundScan Top 10 Digital Core Country Chart for eight consecutive weeks. The video has received more than 6 million views online.
