Chrissy and I have been incredibly fortunate to interview some of country music's biggest stars over the years and Kip Moore has consistently been one of our favorites.  Moore is real, honest, authentic, and once you get him in comfortable place he'll literally answer anything you throw out there.  Despite being exhausted -mentally and physically- from a harrowing flight just to get to Albany, he absolutely killed it on-stage at our Secret Star show on Wednesday night and then set aside 25 minutes post-show to talk to us.

We always prefer a long-form type interview with artists that will grant them, and Kip Moore did one with us moments after he got off stage at Albany's Palace Theatre. We decided to break these interviews up into two parts. Here's part 1 in case you missed it. In Part 2, Kip discusses a recent Instagram post in which he encourages fans to help out a homeless man he'd become friends with, as well as his new album (scheduled for this Spring) which he says will be his best one yet.

We love Kip and we hope you enjoy these interviews as much as we enjoyed being able to present them to you.  We hope to shed some light, and perhaps help you learn something new about the artist you love, but don't know a whole helluva lot about; Kip Moore.

Thank you for watching,

Brian and Chrissy, WGNA
