More Country Stars That Struck Gold

Kip Moore

Net Worth: $4 million Venture: Slowheart. Many fans of the hip Kip Moore don’t know that the singer never really set out to develop a musical career, and to some extent, stumbled into it. When he was younger, Moore would travel as a backpacking nomad and spend most of his time after college surfing in Hawaii while living in his tiny Hut. In 2004, after what we imagine were some really great days of tanning and working on his beach bod, Moore decided to try his luck at singing and moved to Nashville, where he met the successful producer Brett James, who helped him get a label deal with MCA Nashville.

The surfing singer made his debut in 2012 and his luck just kept going. Moore would go on to receive critical and commercial acclaim for his first album, “Up All Night,” which was the best selling first album of any male country star for both 2012 and 2013, and achieved platinum status by the RIAA shortly after its release. Since then, Moore has released two more albums, “Wild Ones” and “Slowheart”, which both received good amounts of sales and attention, but failed to live up to the levels of success the first album generated. His best singles are, “Young Love,” “Dirt Road,” and “I’m to Blame.”
