Kip Moore Finally Moves Out of Bug-Infested Room to a New House

“I got the whole second record out of it, so it served its purpose,” he said.

Kip Moore had a starving artist thing going on for a long time. But the guy embraced it. Even when he could afford better, Kip stayed in a dingy, one-room, bug-infested place with no hot water.

“Lots and lots of bugs, man. Just tons of it, man,” Kip tells ABC News Radio.

“You’d be laying there in bed and all the sudden a roach flies on your face.”

Gross! Why?

“I got the whole second record out of it, so it served its purpose,” he said.

Looks like Kip no longer needs to suffer to be creative. He’s in a new house with, of course, a beach feel to it. And that’s working great.

“I’ve been writing like crazy in it,” Kip says.

And no bugs are flying in his face this time.
