This week’s spin comes from Justin Moore. Over the past decade, the Arkansas native and multiplatinum-selling country star -- signed to The Valory Music Co., an imprint of the Big Machine Label Group -- has racked up more than a billion on-demand streams, performances on Kimmel and the Today show, and tour dates alongside Trace Adkins, Luke Bryan, Brooks & Dunn, ZZ Top, Hank Williams Jr., Brad Paisley and more.
Via his "traditional Country" persona, signature white cowboy hat and raucous live show, the singer-songwriter has delivered three No. 1 albums -- 2016’s Kinda Don’t Care, 2013’s Off the Beaten Path and 2009’s Justin Moore -- as well as seven No. 1 singles including “You Look Like I Need a Drink,” “Somebody Else Will,” “Small Town USA” and more.
Next up, the 2013 ACM new artist of the year winner's fifth studio LP, Late Nights and Longnecks, is set for release Friday, helmed alongside longtime co-producer Jeremy Stover and Big Machine Label Group president/CEO Scott Borchetta. The new album comes on the heels of a busy summer for the singer, whose recent performances include a set at the National Memorial Day Concert on PBS in May, followed by stops at Ohio's The Country Fest, Wisconsin's Country USA and Illinois' Black Road Music Festival, as well as an intimate performance and Q&A at the Grammy Museum for its "The Drop" series at Los Angeles' L.A. Live.
