Kip Moore was honored with a party at BMI in Nashville on Thursday to celebrate the number-one success of his hit, “Beer Money.” Folks munched on tiny sandwiches, shrimp, Valentine’s Day candy and red velvet milkshakes, along with a beer or two, at the celebration, which also feted Kip’s co-writers Troy Verges and Blair Daly.
Kip said they had actually started in one direction with the song, but it ended up quite differently. “We were talking about college and not having enough money for beer that weekend, and I kinda responded. I was like, ‘I know we were always trying to save our beer money,” says Kip. “But then it kinda morphed into another thing where it was more about the economic times…I had a buddy whose dad had lost his job and the family was pretty down and out, and he couldn’t find another job, but the buddy was telling me that he was still at the bar that weekend. People are always going to always have an outlet; they’re always going to need that outlet no matter how bad times get, so that’s kinda how the whole thing started.”

The annual event will be the kick-off event celebrating and honoring Country Music Hall of Fame member George Jones’ final Nashville concert, which takes place the following evening Friday, November 22nd at the Bridgestone Arena. As part of the celebration, Tootsie’s Orchid Lounge is extending their annual “Birthday Bash” to a two-day event with entertainment on the outdoor Broadway stage taking place on both Thursday and Friday nights.
“The Tootsie’s Birthday Bash has become an annual event that everyone looks forward to,” says Tootsie’s proprietor Steve Smith. “We kicked it off at the Ryman with Kris Kristofferson, Terri Clark, Mel Tillis, and Jamey Johnson a few years back. Then Kid Rock and The Kentucky HeadHunters took the party to the street on Broadway. Last year Dierks Bentley, Randy Houser, and Troy Gentry kicked it up a bit, and who knows who will be coming this year!”
