One of my absolute favorite FAVORITE country artists is Justin Moore.  I thank my lucky stars that I have seen him in concert twice now. The first being at Country Fest in 2011 (after I turned 21!) and more recently in October 2012 at the Resch Center in Green Bay (which I wrote about here).  Being one of my favorite artists I wanted to share some of his music with you like I did with Kip Moore.



While I had heard Justin’s music on the radio prior to seeing him at Country Fest it wasn’t until I saw him perform that I fell in love.  Shortly after Country Fest Justin released his second album which I purchased on iTunes immediately and just fell even harder.


One story I want to share with you is about his song “If Heaven Wasn’t So Far Away”.  In 2011 our family dog Duke became sick and we needed to put him to sleep so he wouldn’t suffer any more.  We did this the day before his 10th birthday, a week before my 21st, and two weeks before Country Fest.  On our last drive home with Duke from the vet (after putting him to sleep) Justin’s song “If Heaven Wasn’t So Far Away” came on the radio and touched a place in my heart in ways it hadn’t before.  In particular, these lyrics:

“If heaven wasn’t so far away

I’d hug all three of those girls we lost from the class of ’99
And I’d find my bird dog Bo and take him huntin’ one more time.”

Hearing Justin sing that song live got to me again at Country Fest and I had tears running down my face as I sang along.  I mentioned in my recap of the concert in Green Bay I lost it again there.  While those lyrics mean the most to me the whole song is awesome and I think everyone can find a way to relate.  Here’s the video for it, which I love as well (of course).

I think I might need to move to the south because I absolutely love Justin’s southern drawl.  And if I can find me a man that’s like what is described in Justin’s songs I would be a happy woman. 😉  I’ll let the music (and videos) speak for themselves though.

Be sure to check him out the next time you want to some good country music.  His albums are titled Justin Moore and Outlaws Like Me.  I will leave you with some of my favorite lyrics (maybe of all time) from “Outlaws Like Me”.

“I curse the sun, I pray for rain
I’d run a mile to walk through pain
I’ve seen the worst and I’ve seen the best that I can be
God bless outlaws like me”


When I posted Sunday night about my “Blood, Sweat, and Beers” concert experience in Green Bay back in October I had meant to include some music of each artist.  But I got a little long-winded so I decided I should end the post before I put you all to sleep. 😉

Here are two songs from Kip Moore that I truly enjoy.

As I mentioned in my post about the concert I purchased Kip’s album Up All Night and have come to enjoy more and more songs of his.  One in particular is “Faith When I Fall”.  There’s just something about this song that really hits me and makes me love it.  Here are some of my favorite lyrics.

Give me love when I ain’t got nobody
A little hope when I ain’t got none at all
Give me light up ahead on a journey
Give me strength when I’m standing
And faith when I fall

I hope you take a look at Kip Moore’s music the next time you’re looking for some new tunes.
