Kip Moore will release his new single, “Beer Money,” to radio July 9. The followup single to Kip’s two week No. 1 hit “Somethin’ ‘Bout a Truck” was co-written by Kip, Blair Daly and Troy Verges. The idea for the song was born after a conversation about growing up in a small town where the only thing to look forward to was a few cold beers on the weekend.
“It’s an easy-going song for people who are sitting in that town with nothing to do,” Kip said. “That is the town that I grew up in. There was nothing to do, nothing to choose from, and a lot of times you felt like banging your fist against the wall, and the only release that you had was the weekend to go have a good time with your friends and your girlfriend, and you wanted to go and have some beers. That is what the song is. It’s just a feel-good release of that small town America life and what it’s like growing up.” Continue Reading

As the band celebrates 10 years of making hits, Rascal Flatts found a unique way Wednesday to recognize some of the people behind their success, throwing a party in which some of the songwriters who created their hits took the stage to sing them for the band.
Held at the Musicians Hall of Fame in Nashville, the event featured performances of eight Flatts hits — including “Mayberry,” “Fast Cars And Freedom,” “Prayin’ For Daylight” and “Bless The Broken Road” — by such writers as Jeff Hanna, Marcus Hummon, Neil Thrasher, Steve Bogard and Wendell Mobley. The band prepared special plaques for all 77 composers who’ve contributed to their multi-platinum cache.
“These are guys we’ve had history with for 10 years, you know, so it’s awesome to get a little spotlight on them for a change instead of sittin’ at one of our houses in pajamas tryin’ to write somethin’,” Flatts vocalist Gary LeVox says. “It’s been a while since we’ve seen ‘em. Of course, we’re all out on tour, they’re doin’ their thing, and we wanted to bring everybody together and just tell ‘em thanks.”
