Justin Moore Embraces Outsider Status On New Album & Single, ‘Stray Dog’
Justin Moore will release his sixth studio album, Stray Dog, on May 5 via The Valory Music Co. The project’s title track is out today (Feb. 24).
The project is filled with stories of desire and commitment, heartbreak and regret, joy and celebration. Moore and the band captured the majority of Stray Dog live over the course of just a few days. Opener “Everybody Get Along” sets the stage, with a playful spirit of camaraderie between Moore and guest Riley Green, who spin a friendly rivalry into a declaration of unity in the face of tension and division.
“That Wasn’t Jack” turns a down-home southern saying into a vulnerable revelation, while the “Better Slow” meditates on pumping the brakes in a world obsessed with instant gratification. The blissful “Country On It” revels in the laidback joys of country living. Moore gets romantic with his latest No. 1 single, “With a Woman You Love,” taps into a sensual side on the simmering “You, Me, And Whiskey” with rising star Priscillia Block, and gets into party mode on the lighthearted “Get Rich Or Drunk Trying.”
“A long time ago I decided I wasn’t going to play games or pursue things that didn’t make me happy,” Moore reflects. “Perhaps that’s made me a bit of an outsider in this industry, but it’s also what allows me to go to bed each night feeling good about what I’m doing.”
Writers contributing to the project include David Lee Murphy, Jeremy Stover, Chase McGill, Paul DiGiovanni, Randy Montana, and more.
