You won’t believe what the quintessential comeback kid Kip Moore is doing for inner city kids

There is just something in the crackle of country music’s very own Kip Moore’s voice that makes everyone who listens realize that the guy has a heart as big as Tennessee.

Make that even bigger than that.

The multi-platinum artist recently kicked off his “Comeback Kid Skatepark Project” — an initiative that will oversee the construction of skate parks in some of our country’s poorest neighborhoods.

“What started off as a pipe dream of mine years ago has truly become a passion project,” said Moore in a recent press release. “It came from me wanting to give kids in inner cities a safe outlet, where they can form the bonds I know can be made from having somewhere awesome to go and be a part of something they enjoy. I wrote the song ‘Comeback Kid’ at a time when I felt like a comeback kid, but now when I sing it I think less about myself and more about the kids we are doing this for and how much I admire and respect them.  We’re starting with these four cities, but the plan is to keep growing this as far and wide as we can.”

Wondering where the “Comeback Kid” idea came from? Well, y’all will find out a lot more about that come August 21st, when the song “Comeback Kid” is featured on Moore’s upcoming album “Wild Ones.”
