Kip Moore Documents Journey To 'Slowheart'
Kip Moore has created a documentary with one of his best friends, video director PJ Brown, to detail the months he took off to travel the world, as well as the process of making his new album.
The Journey to Slowheart begins with footage in his hometown at his mother’s house in Georgia. Moore drives around the town reminiscing on the good times with his parents and siblings.
It is apparent that there are several key people in his life that have really had an influence on him and his views. He talks about his sister and “biggest hero” who was paralyzed from the waist down after a bad car accident when she was in high school. She describes Moore as being the most “caring brother who would do anything to help her.”
Moore talks about his father, who died about five years ago and the heartbreak that goes along with that. He also talks about an inspirational man he met in Cancun.
Moore said it wasn’t his idea to have cameras follow him 24/7, but he soon realized what a special journey he was on and embraced the idea.
“PJ knew where I was at mentally. He knew the exhaustion that I had been dealing with, so when I decided to check out, he was like, ‘I want to come with you and I want to document where you are in the beginning of this journey, where you’re at the end of it and what comes about after it.’
“So, he followed all of our travels and watching me just kind of evolve through those four months and come out of it and come back in the studio and finish the second half of this record,” Moore explained. “So, we just felt like it was a crucial time. We knew that when I got done with those travels I was going to be trying to go back in and finish this record that I’d started on. So, I mean, I think he just wanted to capture what happened between the beginning of it and the end of it, and it wasn’t my idea; it was his, but once we got going, I could see that something pretty special was happening, so I’m glad we were able to capture it.”
