At the crossroad where rock meets country there is a man named Kip Moore. Far from a conventional country crooner, Kip is able to achieve the perfect mix of the two genres, creating a sound all of his own. In fact, in the past, Country Music #CMchat has compared Kip’s music to a twangy Guns ‘N’ Roses sound. Now, with his new release, “Heart’s Desire,” Kip leaves behind the Axl Rose for something more akin to a Jon Bon Jovi vibe.
“Heart’s Desire” is a slow southern jam with obvious country undertones and equally obvious rock ‘n’ roll inspiration. Kip’s gritty, gruff vocals that make him stand out in the industry are especially evident on this song, as he longingly sings about the one that got away. Singing through his pain, wondering where she is, what she’s doing, and who she is doing it with, Kip very simply sings “I’m a raging fire, you’re my heart’s desire.”
The video is a live performance, used as a sneak preview of #CMTonTour, and part of a 5-song EP, Soundcheck, that was introduced on CMT.com and Spotify. You can watch the “Heart’s Desire” video and stream the five songs (which include an acoustic version of hit song “Beer Money”) below.
