With music streaming on the rise, many songwriters often struggle to get fair compensation for their songs if they don’t get picked as radio singles. As the songwriters continue to fight for fair pay from streaming services, Kip Moore has stepped up to provide a yearly bonus to his fellow co-writers in hopes that it will give them the financial security to keep writing great music. Kip tells Billboard that while he knows not every artist can follow his lead, he hopes that some of the more successful artists can follow suit to help the struggling songwriters in Nashville.

After years of being on a tour bus and making records, Kip Moore told Rare Country that he will be taking a break in 2017. He said, “I don’t know what the word is, because I’m not just worn out … I’m something more than that. We have toured 175 or more shows for six years straight, which is kind of unheard of. We are all tired. I don’t think people see that side very often because they just see us onstage, but the grind of sleeping on a bus every night for 225 days or more takes a mental and physical tear on you.”
· Moore added, “I’m going to walk away from it. I’m not going to bring a guitar, and I’m not going to do anything with music. I’m going to surf and snowboard and camp and just try to get my head right. My head hasn’t been in the best place so I want to try and work on all that and get settled for next year.”
· Moore has plans to surf in Maui and Costa Rica during his downtime.
