Kip Moore Announces 'The How High Tour,' Drops 'Good Life' Video

Kip Moore has announced that his headlining "How High Tour" will kick off in Chicago on October 14 and released a video for his song "Good Life."

Directed by friend and long-time collaborator PJ Brown, the video sees Moore embody the free-spirited nature of the song, channeling multiple facets of living a "Good Life" throughout the trippy video.

"The live show has been a massive part of everything we've built up until this point," Moore said. "We brought out a full record this past year and so it's been a huge priority to get this tour scheduled so we can get out there and play those songs with the people who supported 'Wild World' and maybe even play some newer material now we have 'Good Life' out there."

"Working on the music video for the single was one of the best experiences I've ever had making a video. We really just went for it and let our inhibitions go," the country star added.

Tickets for the tour will be available to purchase this Friday at 10 am local time at kipmoore.net.

Maren Morris' 'The Bones' Wins Song Of The Year At 2021 BMI Pop Awards

Maren Morris' "The Bones" was named Song Of The Year at the 69th Annual BMI Pop Awards. Morris co-wrote the genre-crossing sensational song with Laura Veltz.

The singer, songwriter, and record producer also performed the song during a special online celebration of the BMI Pop Awards.

A metaphor for the importance of a strong foundation in a relationship, the chart-topping single appeared on Morris' sophomore album, Girl, and climbed to No. 12 on the Billboard Hot 100.

The melody could be heard on pop, country and alternative radio, fueling its massive success and becoming the biggest hit of Morris' career.

Last year, the song received a Grammy nomination for Best Country Song and won both Single of the Year and Song of the Year at the Country Music Association Awards.

This is the first BMI Pop Award for the pair, who already have a combined total of 14 BMI Country Awards between them.

Songwriter of the Year was awarded to Halsey, while Sony Music Publishing received the Publisher of the Year award for the ninth time.

BMI also honored the songwriters, publishers and administrators of the 50 most-performed pop songs of the previous year.
