Kip Moore has hit the top of the Country Aircheck/Mediabase country chart with his smash hit, “More Girls Like You.” The song, which he co-wrote with Steven Olsen, Josh Miller and David Garcia, is from his new album, Slowheart, which was released last month.
Kip tells us that "More Girls Like You" is a sentiment that he has slowly come around to. [“I want to always make records that depict where I’m at at that particular place in my life. This is where I’m at in my life now where, I’m still a wildcard. I’m still aloof and I’m still like might be a little ways away from that, but as I’ve traveled and I’ve been around and seen so many different walks of life and so many cultures, and it’s this constant thing. I’ve watched dads being enamored of their daughters and I look forward to that now. I’m a lot more open to that now. So, that’s what the song is finding that person that you find so amazing that you hope they turn out like that amazing person does. It’s just a song that I, as I was writing it down, you know ‘I’ve been living like a wild old mustang/out in Montana fields.’ It’s like that’s just 100 percent to a T, that was the first line I said, where it was like we’re all on board; we know where it’s going, and the reason why I connect to it is I feel it 100 percent.”] SOUNDCUE (:53 OC: . . . it 100 percent.)
Kip shared news of the chart-topper on Twitter yesterday (Sunday, October 22nd) writing, "Thank u country radio, promo team, management, and all the amazing fans for getting More Girls Like You to #1. Very grateful…"
