Kip Moore talks about his connection to fans and his new album, and 'Nashville's' Charles Esten dishes on his dream come true, playing country music and the Grand Ole Opry.

FOX News Radio Entertainment Correspondent, Michelle Pollino has the scoop on the Country music stars making headlines this week:

FOX Country.

I'm Michelle Pollino.

Kip Moore keeps it real, and his fans love it that way. The 35-year-old country star is about to drop his second album and is spending the summer spreading the good word, which is the way he likes it... being with his fans.

(Moore) "I'm kinda person that shoots straight at all times. A lot doesn't change for me because I'm already so hands on with my fans. I sign after almost every single show... sometimes it takes me three to four hours."

Moore's new album "Wild Ones" comes out August 21st, and he's touring with Dierks Bently this summer.

He plays Deacon Claybourne on ABC's 'Nashville', but Charles Esten is also a country music singer and songwriter. And even though he's been acting for the last 25 years...

(Esten) "I've always been writing country music along the way - all kinds of music actually really did focus up on country even more, probably the last 10, 12 years."

And that includes playing at his dream venue: The Grand Ole Opry, and playing music for country fans.

(Esten) "To be a part of this thing called country music... there is something about country music fans."

Esten says he is working on an album, he's just not sure when it's going to come out.

That's FOX Country on FOX News Radio.
