Justin Moore got back to the #1 spot on the country radio chart with his last single. It had been about three years since he had a big hit like that and it was overdue.
Things kind of took a strange turn in his career the last couple years. His label put out an album of Motley Crue country covers and Justin’s version of Home Sweet Home, which was good was the single. It reached about #30 on the chart and was kind of a weird single choice.
Then they put out This Kind Of Town, which was a really good song, but for some reason it never really got traction at radio. That one confused me because it’s a really good song.
Well Justin is back on track now. His new album sounds like it could have a good run of hits. Let’s check out the second single from that record.
Somebody Else Will – Justin Moore
It’s a little slick. It’s a little rock. But it’s also a little country and that’s kind of been the sweet spot for Justin Moore. He keeps things country. How could he not with that twang? He’s found another catchy love song with this one that sounds different while also sounding family. Fans will like this one and it should be a big hit.
Justin Moore’s career kind of reminds me of Blake Shelton’s early on. Blake had big hits mixed in with some that didn’t do as well. Justin has been kind of feeling his way through the early part of his career, but it seems like he could have a breakout like Blake had.
You never know, though. We’ll have to wait and see.
