“Being out on the road is where me and the band feel most at home,” said Moore. “Even though we’ve been nonstop already this year with the headlining shows in The UK and the Miranda tour, it just doesn¹t feel natural to slow down, our live show is when we are in our element.  I¹m really looking forward to having the opportunity to test some new material that we¹ve been working on out on the road and having Jon out with us too, I¹m sure we¹re going to get into some trouble out there.”


Moore recently returned from a sold-out string of headlining shows in The UK and Ireland and the singer/songwriter is currently on the road for Miranda Lambert¹s Keeper Of The Flame Tour which will stop in Darien, NY (6/23) and Saratoga Springs, NY (6/24) this weekend. Hailed as a ‘career song’ by Billboard, Moore¹s current single ‘Running For You’ continues to climb the charts and is taken from Moore¹s critically acclaimed sophomore album WILD ONES, that Taste of Country deems is “tailored for his live show and the thousands of die-hard fans that pack theaters several times each week to see him,” and Huffington Post declares as “one heck of an album set to produce hit after hit after hit.” WILD ONES follows Moore¹s debut album UP ALL NIGHT which was certified GOLD by the RIAA and spawned three No. One hit singles including GOLD certified ‘Beer Money,’ PLATINUM certified ‘Hey Pretty Girl,’ and the DOUBLE PLATINUM breakout hit ‘Somethin' 'Bout A Truck.’
