What’s a good way to celebrate new success as a country artist? How about a brand new tour? That’s Kip Moore‘s approach, anyway.

As Kip enjoys the fastest-rising single of his career with “More Girls Like You,” he’ll launch his Plead The Fifth Tour October 19th with openers Drake White and Jordan Davis. The tour gets underway just more than a month after this third album Slowheart¬†debuts on September 8th.

“Our live show has been such a focus for me and the band for many years,” Moore says through his publicist. “We are constantly woodshedding and trying to come up with new ways to engage the loyal fan base we’ve developed such a bond with. I’ve always felt Drake is cut from the same cloth and his focus has always seemed to be on the things that matter. We’ve been talking about touring for years and we’re finally going to get that chance. It’ll be a blast to see what we come up with, and also see Jordan Davis build his fan base out here with us.”

The news comes as Kip unveils a music video for “The Bull,” which will be found on the album. “The real world is outside of the walls of Nashville,” he tells Rolling Stone Country. “That song is my middle finger to anybody that thought I was done.”

Kip’s Plead The Fifth Tour will roll through 15 cities as of now.¬†“I’m going to grow as an artist, I’m going to grow as a human being, and I’m going to write to the fans that have been growing with me all along,” he tells the publication of his live shows. “We have stayed authentic to ourselves, and every night [fans] come to our shows, they see me pour out every ounce. I let them into my soul every night. There is a difference between singing songs, and shouting songs, and they are shouting songs. I see tears everywhere. It’s like a revival, the show. There are still those fans that want to feel and see something real.”
