Soul Kitchen is joining forces with WKSJ for an evening of modern country featuring two of its brightest up-and-comers.

Joey Hyde will warm up the crowd. This Michigan native’s love of classic rock bands such as Led Zeppelin and Pink Floyd led him to the guitar. He found his songwriting muses in icons such as Merle Haggard and Tom Petty. After moving to Nashville, he began to hone his songwriting skills at watering holes around Nashville and across the Southeast. Since then, he has continued to pen songs and open for musical acts such as The Band Perry and Lee Brice.

Kip Moore is definitely a man of the Southeast. Born in Tifton, Ga., he attended college at Wallace State Community College in Hanceville, Ala., and had his first performance at a Mellow Mushroom in Valdosta, Ga. He made his way to Nashville to find work as a songwriter. Moore exploded into the country scene with his hit single “Somethin’ Bout a Truck.” This song was included on his debut full-length “Up All Night,” which is still turning out Top Ten hits.
