Kip Moore is like a sponge when it comes to studying the headliners he tours with, so you can bet he's going to be watching Toby Keith 's show like a hawk all summer long. Kip starts his opening gig with Toby's Hammer Down tour Friday night in Cincinnati.
"The guy’s been at the top of his game for no telling how many years," Kip says of Toby. "I mean, 10, 15, 20 years, so I definitely know it’s gonna be something that I can learn a lot from, and I think it’ll definitely better my career going out with him.”
Kip's also excited to win over some of Toby's fans along the way.
Kip explains, "I know that he has a big, a big rowdy crowd, and I know he has a different kind of fan base than I probably do, which is why it’s going to be so much fun for me to get in front of that fan base."
Country newcomer Drake White is also on the Hammer Down tour with Kip and Toby this summer.
