This one is an album cut from the latest Justin Moore album. He’s been rolling for over five years now with hits. This is one of his best songs so far and that’s really saying something. It’s country to the core and he brings on Miranda Lambert for help, which is always a good choice.
I don’t think the song will be a single since Justin and Miranda aren’t on the same label, but you never know. It sounds like it would be a smash single. Give it a listen and see if you agree.
Old Habits – Justin Moore feat. Miranda Lambert
I love country songs like this. I don’t know what that says about me, but there is something about sad country songs that makes me listen. These two did a great job on it too. I can’t imagine it’s easy to put yourself in this place to be able to sing a song like this.
In the song, you’ve got two people that are still aching for each other. They’ve gone separate ways. There was obviously a reason for them to and there is no going back now. But they’re still at the point where they’re doing the things they did when they were together.
It’s the little things like making an extra cup of coffee in the morning or sleeping on the same side of the bed. The other person is no longer there, but those old habits don’t just go away over night.
This is the kind of country song that people relate to. It’s sad, but listening to it can make you feel good about your situation even if it’s only for three minutes or so.
Great song and we’ll cross our fingers that it becomes a single.
