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

Late Nights and Longnecks CD review - Late Nights and Longnecks
Justin Moore bills "Late Nights and Longnecks" as "his most traditional album to date." We've seen a lot of this recently in Music City. When an artist has some commercial success and is leery of the sell-out stigma associated with crossover, they swing the pendulum back toward the traditional and make an album that's all about the songwriting and the truth. The truth here is that there is a lot of drinking on the 10-song collection. Moore has a writing credit on all of them. »»»
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 »»»
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: With or without band, Isbell satisfies – Usually, when an artist performs without his regular backing band, it becomes about mathematics of subtraction. That artist is armed with far fewer artistic weapons at his/her disposal, after all. In Jason Isbell's case, though, when he performed with just his wife and fiddler Amanda Shires, it was more about substitution than subtraction.... »»»
Concert Review: Grammy nominations aside, Yola, Kiah are the real deal – Grammy nominations do not make the artist, but Yola and opener Amythyst Kiah underscored time and again on this night that the honors were well deserved. In fact, Yola and Kiah's other group, Our Native Daughters, are nominated in the same category - Best American Roots. Yola has three other nominations as well. The clear winners... »»»
