We take you behind the scenes and explore the making of one of our favorite tunes with The Song Remembers When…
Kip Moore reached inside the Top 5 just two years ago with his song “More Girls Like You.” It was the lead single from his album Slowheart. He co-wrote it with Steven Lee Olsen, Josh Miller, and David Garcia. But, according to Kip, it was a writing session that almost never happened.
He was planning on going wakeboarding that day, but his publisher called and told him that he had scheduled him a writing appointment. Kip was in a creative space after returning from a trip to Costa Rica, so he quickly bailed on his trip to the lake.
He remembers the song coming together after one of the writers had thrown out this line “more girls like you.” And, from there, they were all throwing out lines and that song came together. For Kip, it was the bridge that he felt was the most powerful part of the song: “Your soul is pure golden, Must’ve been true love you were grown in.” He felt that the line represents what he finds attractive in people – knowing where they come from and how that helped shape them into a good person.
This week’s The Song Remembers When is Kip Moore with “More Girls Like You.”
