Kip Moore has created a documentary with one of his best friends, video director PJ Brown, to detail the months he took off to travel the world, stopping in Hawaii, Cancun, and Iceland, as well as the process of making his new album, Slowheart. The project, called The Journey to Slowheart, begins with footage in his hometown at his mother’s house in Georgia. He drives around the town reminiscing about the good times with his parents and siblings, including his sister and “biggest hero” who was paralyzed from the waist down after a bad car accident when she was in high school. He also talks about his father, who passed away a few years ago and the heartbreak that goes along with that.
Kip tells us: [“PJ knew how long I had been in the process of making this record. PJ knew where I was at mentally. He knew the exhaustion that I had been dealing with, so when I decided to check out, he was like, ‘I want to come with you and I want to document where you are in the beginning of this journey, where you’re at the end of it and what comes about after it.’ So, he followed all of our travels and watching me just kind of evolve through those four months and come out of it and come back into the studio and finish the second half of this record, so once we got going, I could see that something pretty special was happening, so I’m glad we were able to capture it.”] SOUNDCUE (:42 OC: . . . to capture it.)
Kip recently premiered The Journey To Slowheart in Nashville. His Slowheart album will be released on September 8th.
