"Last Shot" is a song by American country music singer Kip Moore. It is the second single to his third studio album Slowheart. Moore wrote the song with Dan Couch and David Lee Murphy, and produced it himself.

Content[edit]

Kip Moore told Sounds Like Nashville that the idea came about when writing with his frequent collaborator Dan Couch. He said that he wanted to give the song an "Aerosmith vibe", and when he started singing a melody to Couch, third writer David Lee Murphy offered the lyric "If you were my last breath, I'd just want to hold you." Upon hearing the line, Moore decided to use the concept of how "the word 'love' is used all too often" to create "an old school country love song".[1]

Music video[edit]

Directed by PJ Brown, the video features stories of four different friends, one of whom is terminally ill, who unite to have an eventful experience together before they can no longer do so.[2]
