Riff: Kip Moore – “Beer Money”

Dec 26, 2012

Let’s wake the town that never stops sleepin’

from Beer Money lyrics by Kip Moore

On the surface, “Beer Money” is another sonically-predictable, country drinking song, of which likely-alcoholic Toby Keith has given us plenty. But sift through that (not too deep) and you find frustrated small-town restlessness – a pleasantly uncommon theme for this genre.
