It’s no secret that we’re big fans of Kip Moore here at Whiskey Riff.

The blood, sweat and tears that he puts into his music is inspirational, the time he spends perfecting each song he writes is commendable, the way he takes care of himself physically is admirable and his damn raspy voice that drives the girls wild… well hell, I just wish I had it.

Ladies love him, men want to be him, but regardless of either, there are a few things that we could all learn from the person and work of Kip Moore.

1. Red hat.

It’s not about wearing a red hat specifically, but finding your signature look and owning it.

2. Stay healthy.

Put down the large pizzas and get in the gym and lift some heavy things. Your body’s a temple, take care of it.

3. A sense of humor.

We all love the people in our lives that can make us laugh. Kip knows how to have some fun. Take notes.

4. Wisdom.

The world is full of knowledge. Soak up all your experiences, learn from them and pass that knowledge onto others.

5. Work ethic.

Nobody in country music works harder than Kip Moore. He’s constantly writing, constantly performing, constantly spending time with his fans and constantly perfecting his craft. You’d be wise to do the same.

6. Passion.

That work ethic is fueled by passion. Passion for his music, his performance and his fans. Approach life with a similar passion. Passion for your work, your relationships and your convictions.

7. Help those in need.

Between Kip’s skate park project and time with kids at St. Jude Children’s Hospital, it’s obvious that he values those in need. Make an impact in people’s lives that will never be able to repay you. There’s nothing more rewarding.

8. Know who you are.

Be confident in who you are. Be yourself and if they don’t like it… tell ’em “that’s alright with me.”

9. Appreciate those who helped get you there.

If you have ever seen Kip Moore live, you’ll know how much he loves and respects his band. He’s always one of the first artists to thank his supporting cast. Remember those that helped you along the way, stay thankful, and take time to thank the Man upstairs. Nobody does it alone.
