Kip Moore made a big, initial impression on fans thanks to his #1 hits “Somethin’ ‘Bout a Truck” and “Beer Money,” but his latest single, “Hey Pretty Girl,” is literally changing some of those fans’ lives. One couple even decided to repair their broken relationship and get married after hearing the song.
Kip met that man and woman after one of his recent shows, and the guy explained they had broken up four months before he heard “Hey Pretty Girl” on the radio.
Kip recalls, “He said, ‘I started crying. I called my girlfriend immediately.'”
It turns out the guy’s girlfriend was listening to that same radio station, and hearing that song convinced them both to admit they really missed each other.
Kip continues, “He drove right to her house and he said, ‘I don’t have a ring yet, but I want you to marry me.’ He said, ‘That song saved us as a couple,’ and now they’re getting married.”
Hearing stories like that is extremely gratifying for Kip, but he is a little freaked out that one of his songs can have that big of an impact on his fans’ lives.
“It’s just wild that I’ve come to a place now my voice can be heard with a song that it can change somebody’s entire path,” Kip says. “It’s scary at the same time that you can have that kind of effect. But it was a proud moment for me to be a part of what I’m doing and to have an effect on someone like that.”
“Hey Pretty Girl” is included on Kip’s debut album, Up All Night.
