Kip Moore is living on a tour bus these days touring the country, but that bus must feel like a palace compared to the tiny hut he lived in for a while in Hawaii. A few years ago, Kip spent about six months living near the beach there, surfing and writing songs every day.
"I lived in a hut that was probably 5 by 11 foot concrete slab with a little screen around it," Kip says. "Had a little bathroom connected to it and that's all I needed."
The hut was out in the woods about two miles from the beach. Kip would hitchhike to the beach and surf. He'd also do a lot of backpacking around the island.
He says, "I'd have my sleeping bag and that was it. I'd shower at the beaches and carry a bunch of tuna in my backpack and my guitar and I'd write songs and surf." Kip adds, "I was a man of little means."
Kip continues his endless concert tour with a show in Cincinnati, OH on Friday, August 10.
