Kip Mooreteamed up with his fall tour openers Boy Named Banjo to put a bluegrass spin on Bruce Springsteen’s “I’m on Fire.”
Similar to the bluegrass version they did not too long ago of Kip’s fan-favorite “Plead the Fifth,” this is another cool take on a classic and it’s fun to hear a bit of a different sound from Kip with the banjo element.
“I’m on Fire” was originally released in 1985, and was the fourth single from Bruce’s classic album, Born in the U.S.A. A solo write by Bruce, it peaked at #6 on the Billboard Hot 100 Pop Singles chart the year it was released.
Kip often cites Bruce as a major influence in his music, so it’s not surprising to have him covering the rock legend as he gears up to (hopefully) release a new record sometime this year.
Hopefully, we’ll get to hear a few more of these before they hit the road together in September:
