Kip Moore grew up watching his late father work long hours for little pay on blue-collar jobs to support their large family. Seeing his father struggle like that has informed a lot of Kip's writing, including a new song, "Comeback Kid," on his upcoming sophomore album.

Kip tells Billboard , "I wrote a song ['Comeback Kid'] really speaking to those people doing the daily grind, getting by, with big families -- the construction workers, the factory workers, those kind of people. I wrote that for them, straight to the heart."

Kip is still putting the finishing touches on his new album, but the lead single from that project, "Young Love," is now climbing the country chart.
