Moore says his shows will include material from both his 2012 debut, Up All Night, and its as-yet-untitled follow-up.

"To be teaming up with CMT for a tour is a really exciting moment in my career," Moore said. "We'll definitely be playing lots of songs from the new album out on the road, so it will be fun to test those out and see what the fans think."

Dubbed the Up in Smoke Tour, the road trip begins in New York City on September 25th and makes stops in Minneapolis, Boston and other major markets.

The Pack | 2006

Berkeley, California rappers the Pack made their footwear choice clear in 2006 with the song "Vans." The track caught the attention of Too $hort, who signed them to his imprint. MTV refused to play the video for the song, though, claiming it was essentially a commercial for the product. Rapper Lil' B disagreed. "I didn’t know nobody [at] Vans," he said. "I was just a rapper who wore Vans." Even without MTV's support, Lil' B recognized the impact of the track. "God blessed me with such a revolutionary song… People around my age know who really started a lot of the dressing people are into now."
