A legend in the making, Justin Moore stands alone at the intersection of a dusty, old, dirt road and a modern superhighway. He represents country music’s past and country music’s future. He’s a self-described outlaw that sings about his Chevy, guns, Heaven, and beer, and if that ain’t country, well, you know what you can kiss.
Justin sings songs you could enjoy over a glass of whiskey with your grandfather or your future grandkids: they’re timeless truths that are as honest as we all hope to be. The title track off his brand new album Outlaws Like Me comes straight from the heart. Justin finds redemption, singing about the all too familiar conflict of splitting time between a bar stool and church pew.
“Everybody battles that internal good versus evil from time to time while growing up. I’m a Christian but I haven’t always been the best one or the best husband and dad. This song talks about getting back to that place where I am better. It has been a blessing in my life and that’s why we named the album after this song.” Justin Moore.
Musically, the song follows the lyrics perfectly. Weaving a weeping steal guitar and saloon style piano into lifting choruses and giant crescendos, Justin and his band meld a combination of sounds that could easily echo off the sawdust floors of a honky tonk on Saturday night and reverberate through the rectory on Sunday morning.
