Kip Moore & Dierks Bentley Give Dad Credit
Posted By Sarah Wyland On June 15, 2013 @ 4:00 PM In Country Music News | Comments Disabled
Kip Moore  has a number of musical artists who have inspired him, but it was weekend fishing trips with his father that formed his early love of lyrics and later inspired him to pursue songwriting.
“He would just play all those classic records – Little River Band, Jackson Browne, Springsteen, Seeger, Willie Nelson , the Red-Headed Stranger, Kristofferson , Sam Cooke,” he said. “He’d be singing the songs and telling us why it was such good music. I looked up to him so much, that’s the music I gravitated towards and that’s what I continue to listen to. Whenever I think about those old fishing trips, that’s what I think about is on the way down there, him singing those songs and all of us singin’ ‘em.”
For Dierks Bentley , his father, who passed away last year, also inspired him to pursue music. Dierks credits his dad for his career today.
“My dad is my biggest influence in country music because my dad loved country radio,” he said. “We always drove around listening to country radio and George Strait , Hank Williams  and Randy Travis  and all these guys. Without him, I wouldn’t be doing this, that’s for sure.”
