Kip Moore Announces Skating Fundraiser Featuring Tony Hawk
Kip Moore is combining his love of music and skateboarding into an all-day-fun fundraising event.
On Sept. 10, Moore will host Music City Skate Jam, which will include a skate demo by legendary pro skateboarder Tony Hawk. Moore will perform, as well Jordan Davis and Dee Jay Silver, and the day will serve as a joint fundraising event for Moore's Kip’s Kids Fund and Hawk’s Tony Hawk Foundation. Both organizations function with a goal of benefiting and empowering youth.
"I think what's always driven me at my core, throughout my career, was to one day have the capability to make a major impact in inner cities around the country,” Moore says. "I was never a true skater, but always admired the brotherhood of the skating community. Having a chance to team up with a guy like Tony, who's so respected for all he does, is beyond what I could've imagined. I'm super stoked to combine what we do, as we both share similar visions."

"The Music City Skate Jam is the first event of its kind, bringing skateboarding and country music together,” Tony Hawk says in a press release. "I’m excited to show Nashville an unprecedented display of talent, including some of the world’s best skaters and Kip Moore himself.”
