BARDSTOWN, Ky – Evan Williams Bourbon is partnering with Multi-Platinum selling artist Kip Moore for the 2015 Wild Ones Tour. The brand will be the “Official Bourbon” at each of the 25 stops on the tour.

As Official Bourbon of the 2015 Wild Ones Tour, Evan Williams will partner on promoted behind-the-scenes videos, arena signage and feature tour cocktails, all supported by digital media throughout the eight week tour.

Moore’s sophomore album, Wild Ones, was released last month to critical acclaim with Rolling Stone hailing it as “the year’s most honest album.”  It follows his debut album Up All Night, which spawned three No. One hits including “Hey Pretty Girl,” “Beer Money” and “Somethin’ ‘Bout A Truck.” A constant road warrior, the Chicago Sun-Times heralds Moore’s live show as “carving his own niche in country music…that sets him apart from the flock of country music rockers.”

“Kip is an authentic, country-rock talent whose grassroots style and meaningful lyrics reflect the style and personality of Evan Williams Bourbon,” said Chris Ratterman, Brand Manager, Evan Williams Bourbon. “We are excited to partner with Kip and be a part of the success of his new album and nationwide tour.
