Kip Moore Delivers Incredible Cover Of U2’s “Stuck in a Moment You Can’t Get Out Of”

I love me a good Kip Moore cover.

We’ve seen him do tons of kickass covers of songs outside the country genre before, like Tears for Fears’ “Everybody Wants to Rule The World,” Pearl Jam’s “Better Man,” and even Prince’s “Purple Rain,” just to name a few.

Kip has clear influences in his own songs from tons of different bands and artists across the musical spectrum, and any cover he does is always superb, mainly due to his incredible rich and soulful voice that transcends one specific category of music.

And at a recent Canadian tour stop in Calgary, Alberta he did a fantastic rendition of U2’s “Stuck in a Moment You Can’t Get Out Of.”

The second single from their 2000 All That You Can’t Leave Behind album, the song peaked at #52 on the U.S. Billboard Hot 100 chart.

In 2002, the song won the Grammy Award for Best Pop Performance by a Duo or Group with Vocal at the 44th annual Grammy Awards.

Written by the band’s lead vocalist Bono along with band members the Edge, Adam Clayton and Larry Mullen Jr., Bono says he was inspired by a personal experience, after the suicide of his close friend Michael Hutchence (lead singer of the band INXS).

And while I do love Kip’s country covers of country songs like Garth’s “That Summer” and David Lee Murphy’s “Dust On the Bottle,” it’s really damn hard to beat this:
