Kip Moore is set to share the spotlight with the University of Tennessee in Knoxville on Monday when he performs his two-week No. 1 song, "Somethin' 'Bout a Truck," on NBC's "Today" from the Big Orange's campus.
The performance is part of a the "Kathie Lee and Hoda Go Back to College" special.
The University of Tennessee won a contest to determine which school would be selected to host the morning show.
Moore says he's looking forward to the visit.
"The energy level at a college is always heightened," the singer said in a prepared statement. "You've got so much spirit among the student body. That gives us energy when we are playing, so we always look forward to playing on college campuses. The spirit of these big SEC schools is pretty amazing. I never got to be a part of that, so I am looking forward to it."
Monday's appearance marks the second time Moore has appeared on the show.
"They made me feel really comfortable," he says of his earlier appearance in the show's New York studio. "They are good people, and it's always good to hang out with good people."
Moore's debut album, "Up All Night," is the best-selling country debut album of 2012, and his current single, "Beer Money," is in the top 20 and rising. He's also on Eric Church's The Blood, Sweat & Beers Tour throughout the fall.
"I am honored that I am getting to do this," he says. "I have worked hard, and it's awesome to see these songs come to life and people get to hear them on a national scale. So many times I questioned if I was doing the right thing. The next thing you know, all of a sudden these songs you wrote in the dark and quiet, that you thought only you would hear, are getting to be heard by thousands and sometimes millions of people. It's a neat thing."
