About The Entertainment
Singer-songwriter Kip Moore combines a raw and rustic voice with compelling lyrics of honesty to create a unique sound that’s simultaneously hypnotic and edgy. His voice is weathered by life’s detours and disappointments and strengthened by his dreams and determination. His music is infused with relentless intensity, both of passion and frustration.
The boy who grew up daydreaming about life outside of the small town of Tifton, Ga., became a man who has been continually inspired by Bruce Springsteen and Kris Kristofferson to paint vivid portraits with his lyrics.
“I am not drawn to the fairytale kind of love,” says Kip, who had a hand in writing every song on his debut album. “I am drawn to the real-life experiences between a woman and a man. I try to sing about the way it is, but yet at the same time, what you can hope for between a couple. I don’t intend to paint of picture of what it’s really not.”
His music powerfully captures some of the contradictions that he grapples with personally. Although he’s from a large family and enjoys musical collaborations and performing onstage, he’s an introvert who is often more comfortable being alone. “There’s a combativeness to the music too, a fight within,” he says. “With ‘Faith When I Fall,’ I know how bad I need that spiritual realm, but yet I find myself on this other end a lot of times.”
Barney of Mayberry
Scott "Barney" Epperson is a "dead ringer" of Barney Fife, the bumbling deputy of Mayberry. He looks, walks, talks, and acts as only Barney can, and always reminds people to "nip it in the bud." Scott is a well-established theater actor with experience in radio, television commercials, promotions, and music videos. He has also been in shows with some of the biggest names in the entertainment business.
Whether he’s mingling with the crowd, signing autographs, taking photos with fans, or dancing on stage, this lovable lawman is always mindful of his public safety duty and passes out tickets for things such as jay-walking to the crowd as needed.
Scott is a North Carolina resident who's hometown of Mount Airy, NC is also the hometown of none other than Andy Griffith himself! Scott takes great pride in his portrayal of the beloved Barney Fife character, and feels honored to be able to spread joy, laughter and smiles to so many people throughout the country. He truly is as close as it gets to the original TV character from "The Andy Griffith Show."
