Justin Moore's star has grown significantly since he was named Billboard's Top New Country Artist of 2009. This southern country stylist has sold over 3 million digital downloads to date and his sophomore album OUTLAWS LIKE ME hit the No. 1 spot the week it was released. OUTLAWS LIKE ME includes the fastest-rising single of Moore's career, "If Heaven Wasn't So Far Away" and "'Til My Last Day," both ascended to the No. 1 spot. His debut album scored three consecutive smash singles (the No. 1 "Small Town USA" as well as the hits "Backwoods" and "How I Got To Be This Way"). He has been profiled by publications from The Washington Post, People Country and Billboard to USA Today. Additionally, his debut was recognized by the New York Times as one of the best albums of 2009. National TV appearances have included The Late Late Show With Craig Ferguson, NPR, WGN Midday News, FOX, Associated Press and Better TV while his music has been featured on NASHVILLE, Hannity & Colmes and NFL Rewind. Just last year, he hit the road with Rascal Flatts, Darius Rucker, Miranda Lambert and Blake Shelton. Justin Moore is currently on the road with his first headlining tour, the OUTLAWS LIKE ME TOUR.
When Justin Moore tells his fans at all of his shows that he's "proud to be from small town USA", it is from the heart. The Poyen Arkansas native grew up in a town with a population of 272. How does the kid from the small town follow that up with a top 5 hit, a top 15 hit and his second number 1 and fastest rising single from his second album "If Heaven Wasn't So Far Away?" He starts by being true to himself, in the way he lives and in the songs he writes. When he sings about growing up in Poyen in his number 1 hit, "Small Town USA" and that "some people called it prison when I was growin' up, but these are my roots and this is what I love", he means every word of it.
His parents Tommy Ray and Charlene Moore first noticed he could sing when he was 2 years old. In August of 2009 Justin released his first album, "Justin Moore" on The Valory Music Company label. He spent all of 2009 and 2010 touring with the biggest names in country music, including Trace Adkins, Hank Williams Jr, Lynyrd Skynyrd, Brad Paisley, Brooks and Dunn, Miranda Lambert and Darius Rucker. He signed on for the 2011 summer "Flatts Fest Tour" with Rascal Flatts. He finished 2011 with Miranda Lambert and then with Darius Rucker. He started January 2012 touring with Blake Shelton. His headlining shows have sold out in clubs across the country and his loyal fan base continues to grow. Justin's sophomore album "Outlaws Like Me" debuted at number one upon it's release nationwide on June 21, 2011 and quickly landed him his second Number 1 along with a top 15 and a current single and his first ever love song "Til My Last Day" sitting at number 12 on the charts and headed upwards. Justin's fans have found his new album filled with songs that stay true his roots, some hard rocking kick ass cuts and some that show a slightly softer side, a sign of kind of a musical maturity, so to speak, brought on no doubt by the three greatest joys in his life, his daughter Ella, born in February 2009, his daughter Kennedy born in November 2011, and his beautiful wife Kate.
