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

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 »»»
Justin Moore CD review - Justin Moore
There are a lot of male singers out there today in country covering the same turf - Jason Aldean, Randy Houser and now Justin Moore among others. Their music may be steeped in country at some level, but the direction that they follow is far more rooted in rock. Arkansas native Moore has a few quality songs among the 10, but he never succeeds in carving out his own niche. Moore falls victim to the host of other would be country poseurs who try to invoke the names of the forefathers in the »»»
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: For Doug Seegers, no pinching needed – Doug Seegers probably should be pinching himself these days. He's not some country music cover boy or hunk wearing a baseball hat or highlighting a bunch of tattoos. If looking for opposites of what passes for a country musician these days, Seegers would probably just about be the top pick. Yes, he lives in Nashville, but he just retired after... »»»
Concert Review: Cynics be damned, Carter girl endures – Cynical naysayers without a clue would aim their vitriol at Carlene Carter. Yes, she is one of the progeny of the Carter family, the first family of country music. And she is quite proud of it. So much so that after watching Maybelle Carter perform with her sisters and being the daughter of June Carter Cash (not to mention Johnny Cash's... »»»

Finally, Skaggs and White duet Perhaps there are few more beloved names in the world of country and bluegrass music than Ricky Skaggs and his wife Sharon of the country music family act The Whites. The two have been close friends since their teenage years through music, first meeting at a festival where White was performing with her father Buck White and sister Cheryl, and Skaggs was playing with Keith Whitley.... »»»
Douglas dreams on Taking a second look at the two-album deal he had recently signed with the Rounder/Concord group, and then at his busy upcoming touring schedule, Jerry Douglas suddenly realized he didn't have a lot of time to waste. The first album, "Three Bells," a collaboration with fellow resophonic guitar (aka "Dobro") titans Rob Ickes of Blue Highway and the late Mike Auldridge was pretty much ready to go, the sessions having been completed shortly before Auldridge's passing in December 2012 following a lengthy struggle with cancer.... »»»
Trampled by Turtles get wild Trampled By Turtles is an indie folk group, an alt.-country band or a bluegrass act - depending on how you choose to look at them. Perhaps it's best to view the outfit as the ultimate combo platter consisting of just about everything that's good about American music. They play wonderfully, yet they also write intelligent songs that draw everyone from Townes Van Zandt to Nirvana to Ralph Stanley. It's all good, and some (or all) of these influences can be spotted in most of Trampled By Turtles' enjoyable sounds.... »»»
Don't try labeling Parker Millsap If you move in alt.-country/Americana circles, you simply cannot get away from the name Parker Millsap. He's certainly one of the biggest buzz artists of 2014. Better still, his self-titled album lives up to all the hype. He's a smart songwriter and a passionate singer and is essential listening for anybody looking for high quality contemporary music. Millsap also creates music appealing to a wide variety of musical tastes. You can make a case that he's a country guy, but you can also hear a lot of blues and folk. And if you attempt to put a label on him, he'll quickly tear it right off.... »»»
Anything Goes CD review - Anything Goes
The title of Florida Georgia's second full length is accurate. For the duo of Tyler Hubbard and Brian Kelly, that means girls, girls and more girls plus an ultra dose of partying. That is evident from the refrain of the title track, which, of course, focuses on Friday night activities. "I brought the songs and you brought the party/Only one way to do it up right..."  »»»
Old Boots, New Dirt CD review - Old Boots, New Dirt
Arguing whether or not Jason Aldean's kinda (country) party is, in fact, anything remotely related to true country music is pointless. Aldean is so entrenched in the mainstream country marketplace now, we just need to accept him as he is, the same way we reluctantly accept Taylor Swift as "country." It's mighty tempting to subtitle a review of Aldean's new "Old Boots, New Dirt" release as 'Pickup Trucks & Pickup Lines," »»»
I'm the Troubadour CD review - I'm the Troubadour
Hal Ketchum has rarely ventured out of traditional country realms, and for good reason. With 10 previous albums to his credit, a career that stretches back nearly 30 years, and no less than 17 singles on the country charts - and a half dozen of those reaching well into the Top Ten -- his country credentials are exceedingly well established. »»»
Bringing Back the Sunshine CD review - Bringing Back the Sunshine
It's impossible to get away from the fact that one's perception of Blake Shelton's music has changed significantly since he began his role as a judge on The Voice. His music hasn't been altered all that much after he became a TV star, but we now know him as the affable, yet extremely competitive, judge on the popular NBC singing show. »»»

Six years later, Lee Ann Womack is finally back. Her traditional country sounds were not quite working with Nashville, which was veering increasingly pop. Now, the Texas native returns with a new label, but the same lovely voice. Originally intended for her old label, MCA Nashville, Womack was given the marching orders to make the type of disc she wanted to listen to. »»»
Tribal CD review - Tribal
With the clacking of drum sticks, "one-two-three-four" count off and the echoey rockabilly voice of Irish singer Imelda May taking over with authority, "Tribal" hits the nail on the head. No wonder she sings "I hold my head up proud." She sure does with a punky, early rock and rockabilly sound. There aren't a lot of female rockabilly singers out there these days.  »»»
