Did you know that just a few years ago Kip Moore spent about six months living near the beach there, surfing and writing songs every day?
"I lived in a hut that was probably 5-by-11-foot concrete slab with a little screen around it," Kip says. "Had a little bathroom connected to it and that's all I needed."
The hut was out in the woods about two miles from the beach. Kip would hitchhike to the beach and surf. He'd also do a lot of backpacking around the island.
He says, "I'd have my sleeping bag and that was it. I'd shower at the beaches and carry a bunch of tuna in my backpack and my guitar and I'd write songs and surf." Kip adds, "I was a man of little means."
If you are going to be a beach bum, Hawaii is where to do it for sure!! I am IN LOVE with his new song "Beer Money"! His whole album 'Up All Night' is great actually!
