Moore announces album, tour

Thursday, July 25, 2013 – Justin Moore will release a new disc, "Off the Beaten Path," on Sept. 17 on Valory. And he also announced today that he will launch the Off the Beaten Path Tour on Nov. 1 in Missouri, ending 56 cities later in Arkansas at the end of April 2014.

The trek also stars Randy Houser and special guest Josh Thompson.

"I can't express, in words, how excited I am about this tour. The success of the Outlaws Like Me Tour gave us the opportunity to step it up a notch this time around. From the production to venue size to Randy and Josh, we're taking it to another level," said Moore. "I consider Randy Houser and Josh Thompson to be two of my best friends in Nashville, and, I've said numerous times, I believe they are the two most talented singer/songwriters in our format. We are thrilled to welcome them to our second headlining tour and know that they will help us tremendously. As a fan, I can't wait to watch them play... It's gonna be a party every night."

Moore's current single is Point At You from the upcoming disc. He has enjoyed previous hits with Small Town USA, If Heaven Wasn't So Far Away and Til My Last Day.

"Over the last few years some of my favorite shows have been with Justin and Josh, so making a tour out of it is going to be special. I can't wait for fans to join the part," said Houser, who is coming off a number one single How Country Feels and is nearing the top of the charts with his follow-up hit Runnin' Outta Moonlight.

Thompson just released a new single on Show Dog Nashville.

CD reviews for Justin Moore

Kinda Don't Care CD review - Kinda Don't Care
The title track on Justin Moore's "Kinda Don't Care" album is so good it almost makes you wish the rest of the tracks were this fine. But they're not. Nevertheless, the song's Waylon Jennings thump-thump groove, its steel guitar-electric guitar interplay and lyric about how a broken heart can tempt even a good man to give into available vices - all on account of induced apathy - transforms it into one memorable country song. Although "Goodbye Back" gives »»»
Off the Beaten Path CD review - Off the Beaten Path
With Justin Moore's Off The Beaten Path, this stereotypical modern day country singer actually treads a well trod mainstream road, where the songs push all the right buttons, much like that famous Pavlovian dog study. Moore predictably sings about country life, including rednecks (For Some Ol' Redneck Reason), small towns (This Kind Of Town) and listening to the radio with your girl (Country Radio). Country artists like Moore are so adamant about keeping it real, but you'd almost »»»
Outlaws Like Me CD review - Outlaws Like Me
Justin Moore's sophomore release sounds like the product of a marketing campaign aimed at good ol' country boys who like to drink, drive pickups and party with scantily clad country girls. The recent success of similar artists like Eric Church and Josh Thompson shows that there is a market for Nashville country that is decidedly less pop focused than many recent artists. The album feels too cliché to ring true. The problem begins on the first song, Redneck Side, an upbeat »»»
Editorial: Walking the talk – When names like Hank Williams, Johnny Cash, Waylon and the Hag are invoked, you're talking hard core country. These are the touchstones of country , the guys who made country music what it was and still is (or maybe can be). When these folks would sing about being down-and-out and the rough-and-tumble, they knew of what they were singing about. Fast forward a few years to the country singers of today. »»»
Concert Review: Mumford and Sons up to snuff, for the most part – Mumford and Sons have always played it smart when it has come to career moves. They have not overtoured by becoming regular fixtures on the touring circuit. Their M.O. is to tour just enough upon an album release and then disappear for a stretch. Ditto for releasing new music ("Delta" just came out last month, Mumford's first release... »»»
Concert Review: Despite small crowd, Hood accomplishes mission – It would have been quite easy to think that Adam Hood would have mailed in this gig. It could not have been easy to make your debut in the Boston area after putting out seven albums, not to mention having songs picked by A list artists, and having maybe 25 people show up. If the Alabama native was dissuaded by the small crowd, he did not show it.... »»»
