Music City Skate Jam: Kip Moore and Tony Hawk come together for a mashup of skateboarding and country music

The GreenRoomKip Moore is teaming up with arguably the most famous skateboarder in the world, Tony Hawk, to put on the Music City Skate Jam next month in Nashville.

The September 10 event will take place in Walk of Fame Park across from the Country Music Hall of Fame and Museum. It’ll combine performances by Kip, newcomer Jordan Davis, and Dee Jay Silver with a skateboarding demo by Hawk.

“I think what’s always driven me at my core, throughout my career, was to one day have the capability to make a major impact in inner cities around the country,” Kip says. In the past few years, the Georgia native has built five skateparks around the country, through his foundation, Kip’s Kids Fund.

“I was never a true skater,” he explains, “but always admired the brotherhood of the skating community. Having a chance to team up with a guy like Tony, who’s so respected for all he does, is beyond what I could’ve imagined. I’m super stoked to combine what we do, as we both share similar visions.”

Proceeds from the Music City Skate Jam will go to both Kip and Tony’s charitable efforts. Tickets are on sale now at KipMoore.net.

Old Dominion teases breezy new “Everything to Lose,” due out FridayABC/Image Group LAOld Dominion are gearing up to share more new music, and from the snippet they posted to social media this week, the next song they’ve got coming is a flirty, tropical summertime anthem.

“This is one y’all haven’t ever heard yet,” the group revealed on social media, posting a 30-second clip of their new song along with a portion of the lyrics. Called “Everything to Lose,” the tune focuses on the early stages of a new relationship.

“Everything that you do is driving me crazy / Dancing and singing along and it’s catching my ear, catching my eye,” the song begins. “Think that it’s been long enough, girl, you know I ain’t playing / So let’s blow this popsicle stand, girl, and kiss it goodbye...”

“Everything to Lose” will be the first taste of previously unheard music from Old Dominion since May, when they dropped three older songs that they’d written for previous projects but that didn’t make the cut.

The band released their self-titled third album in October of last year. That project includes hits like “Make it Sweet” and “One Man Band.”
