CMA award winner Justin Moore brings his 2016 Summer Tour to Stir Cove on July 10th!
Justin Moore's always had a thing about doing it his way. Call it stubborn redneck mettle, a well-developed case of "who I am" or just the fierce commitment to blaze a trail inherent to people from his home of Poyen, Arkansas. It doesn't matter why, just that the blazing sense of off the beaten path drives his album of the same name. Again teaming with fellow writer/producer Jeremy Stover, the pair turn up the guitars, lean into the swagger and refine the powerful good ole boy perspective that allows for all the bravado. There's a strong vein of tenderness and decency holding Moore's kind of country together.
Look no further than Rhett Atkins/Ben Hayslip/Ross Copperman-written "Point At You," the lead single, that acknowledges every wild hair Moore has, but hits the bottom line of his goodness via the woman who became his bride. Those dualities are the truest thing about most red-blooded American males. Get loud, get rowdy, but get home and emerge solid family men dedicated to some basic ideals that have defined this country. One need look no further than The Warren Brothers/Lance Miller/Austin Cunningham-penned opener "Old Back In The New School" to understand Moore is all about the things that last, the wild times and the enduring values making for a way of life worth living.
When he hits that chorus "Just 'cause something's hip don't make it cool/ Let's put a little old back in the new school..." with his hard twang tenor, Moore's authority is as real as the bite in his voice. It is that willingness to be "country" that gives Moore's kind of country its edge.
