Kip Moore was chosen by CMT to headline their annual tour. The Up in Smoke Tour has been hitting midsize theaters across the U.S. for the past couple of months and comes to the Northeast this weekend. He, Sam Hunt, and Charlie Worsham will stop at the Orpheum Theatre in Boston on Friday and Hampton Casino Ballroom on Saturday. Here’s what to expect from each artist:
Sam Hunt is one of the newest country stars. His debut album Montevallo hit stores on October 27, and his chock full of concert friendly hits. The accomplished songwriter has penned the hits “Come Over”, “We Are Tonight”, and “Cop Car” and typically mixes at least one of those into his live set. As for original music Hunt’s debut album was one of the best selling since Florida Georgia Line’s Here’s to the Good Times, and features the platinum hit “Leave the Night On.” A song that is sure to get the crowd on its feet.
Charlie Worsham was thought to be one of country’s brightest young stars after the release of his debut single “Could it Be” last summer. Despite, not having a strong second single Worsham is a talented young performer. As a member of Brad Paisley’s Country Nation Tour this summer Worsham showed off his high energy style as well as his world glass guitar skills. Expect Worsham to be on stage for around a half hour and get the crowd ready for headliner Kip Moore.
Kip Moore will be the final act to take the stage. It’s his first time headlining venues of this size, but his tour has been receiving rave reviews. That comes as no surprise, Moore is a solid live performers. His genuine personality is easily conveyed through his set. Those in attendance will have the privilege of hearing ‘Hey Pretty Girl’ done acoustically. Additionally, Moore will preform his two recent singles (‘Young Love’ and ‘Dirt Road’) along with his first two hits (‘Somethin’ Bout a Truck’ and ‘Beer Money’). His set also features lots of new music from his upcoming album. Much of this music will be new to fans, but you can listen to some of the newer tracks here. You can expect Kip Moore to be on stage for about an hour and forty five minutes to an hour.
