Up All Night

Album: Up All Night (2012)
  • This is the title track of American Country music singer-songwriter Kip Moore's debut album. Released on April 24, 2012, it shares a title with boy band One Direction's first record, which entered the Billboard 200 album chart at #1 the previous month. Moore told The Boot he isn't concerned about any confusion. "I didn't know about that," he said of One Direction, before adding with a laugh. "Country fans don't know anything about the boy bands."
  • Moore explained that he chose "Up All Night" as the title of his album because the phrase has several meanings to him. "This record came about from me being up all night," he said. "There are two parts: being up all night and doing the party scene and living life and grabbing it while I had the moment, which is why I was able to write these songs, and also being up all night in the studio and listening to records and writing until three or four in the morning. Those are the times when you are completely alone and vulnerable, when it's three or four in the morning and you don't know anybody and you aren't really hanging out with a crowd.

    I have been away from my family and a lot of my friends since I was 17," Moore added. "I like to be alone, but at the same time, it creates a vulnerability that I don't have if I have people around me all of the time. I am a lot more honest when I am alone in those times."
