Kip Moore continues climbing toward the top of the country charts with "More Girls Like You," the debut single from his new album, Slowheart. The singer has experienced his share of Number One hits, as well as a few singles that didn't get anywhere near the top of the charts, but he tells us that when he's creating new music, commercial success is the farthest thing from his mind. ["When I'm writing music I'm never thinking about 'is this gonna get played on the radio?' Now, once I get done with that body of work I step back and I'm like, 'Alright, do I have anything that might get played on the radio,' because everybody would like to have hit songs. That's just a natural thing. (Tom) Petty, (Bruce) Springsteen, all those guys talked about wanting to have hits. Merle Haggard always said, 'I'm dreaming of one last hit song,' you know, so everybody likes to have that. It shouldn't be what fuels you. What a radio hit will do is it brings in a new audience to have a chance to hear what you do, you know, and then it gives those people a chance to find out what you're really about at a show, and that's what you're hoping for."] SOUNDCUE (:44 OC: . . . you're hoping for.)

Kip heads overseas next week for a string of concerts in the UK. He kicks off his headlining Plead The Fifth tour stateside beginning on October 19th in Bowling Green, OH.
