With country hitmaker Kip Moore at the top of the bill, the CMT Up in Smoke Tour kicked off with a sold-out concert at NYC’s Best Buy Theatre, and the next day they headed up the Thruway to take over Albany’s Palace Theatre for a night of downtown country music.

It’s Moore’s first major headlining tour, but he played it like a veteran, full of confidence, swagger and enough tunes to fill more than an hour and a half in the spotlight. And the nearly sold-out crowd was with him all the way, as he romped through most of the selections from his debut album, Up All Night, and tossed in a few other gems along the way, including “Heart’s Desire” from his brand new EP Soundcheck and a cover of Tom Petty’s “Free Fallin’.”

Opening acts Charlie Worsham and Sam Hunt haven’t ascended to the top of the bill just yet, but they both garnered quite a few new fans with their performances.
