When Justin Moore found himself homesick and missing his mother's Southern cooking after moving to Nashville several years ago to pursue his musical dream, he was inspired to write "Small Town USA," an ode to the spirit and simplicity of small-town life. "A lot of people called it prison when I was growin' up/But these are my roots and this is what I love," sings Justin about Poyen, Ark.
Justin knew he had to record the song because it succinctly captured the upbringing that shaped him both as an artist and as a man, but he wasn't sure if the autobiographical song would speak to those from different backgrounds. "Thank God I was wrong," he says.
The fast-rising song has become a #1 hit and established Justin as one of 2009's break-out country artists, garnering attention from People, The Washington Post and Billboard. The singer-songwriter landed coveted spots on tours with Trace Adkins, Hank Williams Jr. and Lynyrd Skynyrd and opened for Brooks & Dunn, Kenny Chesney and ZZ Top. "Moore's take on the (small-town) theme is clearly resonating with country music fans," states The Washington Post. During this time of corporate greed and economic uncertainty, his music is a timely reminder of what's truly important in life.
