In the latest episode of his weekly variety series, Travis Denning and Friends Do Stuff, the country artist gets a taste of fellow country star Kip Moore’s grueling workout routine. And fans get to see how it all goes down in this Country Now exclusive premiere.

The highly entertaining new episode, and the fourth to date, begins with Denning looking quite confident about hitting the gym.

“I’ve done some intense workouts, but I need a couple of things to get back in shape,” he tells viewers before a muscular Moore shows up and assesses Denning’s physical condition.

After pointing out Denning’s choice of athletic apparel, Moore questions the “Call It Country” singer on whether or not he’s worked out since high school.

“I’ve dabbled,” Denning replies.

Promising that he will get Denning working out hard enough to break a sweat, Moore puts the singer through a difficult training course, making him test out various workout machines. He also challenges the Georgia native to tackle some sled pushes, arm curls on 50lb weights, and pull-ups before closing out the exercises with a run.

Between sets, Denning tries to shift his focus away from the challenging drills by incorporating his sense of humor into the routine.

“Burned three calories already. This is sad. I’m already getting tired in the legs. I’m just going to take a little country music break,” he jokes, adding, “Do they have water or sweet tea in here, you think? Or like a milkshake or something?”

Denning has been bringing fans a lot of enjoyment through his new Travis Denning and Friends Do Stuff series, which showcases his spirited personality. Last week, viewers saw him shred out a guitar solo alongside John Osborne, one half of country duo Brother’s Osborne. Click HERE to watch that episode. Before that, Denning led Bobby Bones, Adam Hambrick, and LANCO in a game of HORSE. Readers can watch the latter of the two episodes HERE. He debuted the series with a hot chicken challenge featuring Maddie & Tae. 

Aside from the series, Denning has had plenty to brag about. He recently released his foot-stomping track, “Call It Country,” which he co-wrote with Jessi Alexander and Chris Stevens. His latest single, “ABBY,” is at country radio now. 

Later this year, Denning will join Brothers Osborne on the road as an opening act for their We’re Not For Everyone tour, beginning July 29 in Philadelphia.
