Kip Moore is heading out on his first headlining tour this fall and what should be a celebrated time, has turned into a heated debate against ticket scalpers.

After an argument with a scalper last week and later an ESPN radio host on Twitter, Moore spoke with Jeff Thurn, host of JT in 60 yesterday (July 14) to explain his side of the story.

“You made the comment that my fight against this was a PR move,” Moore explained on the call. “I’m gonna tell you something, buddy, you rubbed me the wrong way. You were walking on the fightin’ side of me pretty fast. I realize your job is to stir things up and be combative with people. I do things all on my own. I don’t have a team of people telling me what to do. Where I’m from you don’t question people’s character.”

Moore went on to passionately explain why he is fighting so hard for his fans. “If I don’t stand for something and I don’t fight for something, there ain’t no sense of me even breathing on this earth.”
