Kip Moore: ‘There’s Nothing I Don’t Love About Shania Twain’
By Gayle Thompson
Watch out, Shania Twain! Kip Moore is head-over-heels for the country music superstar, and he isn’t afraid to let the world know.
“There’s nothing I don’t love about Shania,” Moore reveals to Glamour magazine. “When I saw the “Any Man of Mine” video, I was just like [jaw drops] glued to the TV. I [thought], ‘This is my woman. This is Mrs. Moore right here.’ I might be way younger, but this is my woman!”
The “I’m to Blame” singer says that he is such a fan of the Canadian singer that he can lip-sync all of her songs.
“I could dominate early Shania Twain music,” Moore boasts. “I could get down with it. I just love her. That’s my woman. I’ve never met her, but I will one day. We’re supposed to meet.”
Moore’s long-awaited sophomore album, Wild Ones, is scheduled for an Aug. 21 release date. The album follows his 2012 debut, Up All Night, and Moore promises that the wait will be worth it.
“It is a really personal record, and anytime you’re putting yourself out there for ridicule, it’s vulnerable,” Moore says. “[But] I believe in this record so much. I’ve learned that if you don’t have some people that hate you, then you’re not doing something right — if you’re one of those people where nobody really feels hate or love, then you’re stuck. Nobody is ever gonna care about you there. I’m okay if people hate me because that means there’s gonna be people who love me, too.”
Moore is performing several solo shows throughout the summer, as well as serving as an opening act on Dierks Bentley’s 2015 Sounds of Summer Tour, but perhaps he’ll get a break to catch Twain on her 2015 Rock This Country Tour which was recently extended into the fall.
