CMT on Tour 2014: Kip Moore to Headline Up in Smoke Tour

Singer Makes His Announcement on the CMT Music Awards Red Carpet

Kip Moore is set to heat up the stage this fall in his first-ever headlining tour.

CMT on Tour 2014: Up in Smoke will kick off Sept. 25 in New York City, and the platinum-selling singer announced his big news on live television during the CMT Music Awards red carpet show.

“I’m out here with Kip Moore who is playing for his fans on the red carpet, and Kip has a huge announcement right here for everybody,” said CMT Hot 20 Countdown ’s Cody Alan. “Whatcha want to tell people?”

“We’ll be headlining the CMT Tour in the fall,” Moore replied in typical laid-back fashion. “I’m taking out Charlie Worsham and Sam Hunt , who I respect so much, so I cannot wait to headline a bunch of shows and stretch my legs and play longer than 40 minutes, you know?”

The “Hey Pretty Girl,” “Beer Money” and “Somethin’ ’Bout a Truck” singer gave fans a sneak peek of what they will experience later this year by performing throughout the red carpet broadcast.

Meanwhile,’s Samantha Stephens was catching up with Worsham at the other end of the carpet.

“Kip and I have only played a few shows together so far,” Worsham explained. “And judging by the amount of fun we’ve had so far with that one or two-show bit, we’re gonna have to bring a doctor out on the road!”

Worsham’s current single is “Want Me Too” from his 2013 album Rubberband.

CMT on Tour 2014: Up in Smoke will hit more than 20 cities through November. Tickets are available now. For more information visit and tune in to CMT Hot 20 Countdown this Saturday and Sunday (June 21-22) at 11 a.m. ET/PT.
