Kip Moore Recalls Being Tackled on Stage by Fan: ‘I Chipped My Tooth’
Kip Moore has a devoted fanbase, and sometimes that devotion goes to extremes. The singer appeared on The Talk on Monday (Feb. 22) and shared with co-hosts Sharon Osbourne and Julie Chen a recent incident that left him with a chipped tooth.
"A girl was really excited," he recalls of that particular show. "I think she had a little bit too much to drink and she rushed the stage and I actually had my eyes closed when it happened. I was singing with my eyes closed and all of a sudden I felt the mic slam into my mouth and it chipped the bottom of my tooth."
Adds the singer, "But you know what? It adds character. Now I've got stories."
Moore clearly wasn't angry about the situation. Instead, he gave the fan a hug and when bouncers rushed the stage, he told them everything was fine.
"She said, 'I love you' and I said, 'You could have thought of a better way to show it,'" he explains of the encounter.
Moore went on to sing a stripped down version of his new single "Running for You" with piano and electric guitar accompaniment. The bare performance displayed the grit in his voice and the depth behind each lyric. Moore co-wrote "Running for You" with Troy Verges and Blair Daly. The song appears on his sophomore album Wild Ones, released last year. He continues his Wild Ones Tour this month before heading to Australia. He'll then join Miranda Lambert and Brothers Osborne in May for the Keeper of the Flame Tour.
