Country star Justin Moore chatted with Digital Journal about his latest radio single "Kinda Don't Care,' the song's music video, and his summer tour. Moore also opened up about his inaugural show at the hallowed Ryman Auditorium this past May.
After charting for 39 weeks, the song sits at No. 23 on the Billboard Hot Country Airplay charts, and climbing. On the success of his latest radio single "Kinda Don't Care," Moore said, "It's good. It is fun that it is doing well. Our songs take a little time, but they end up turning into hit records, typically. That is always good and it never gets old. This song in particular is fun because it is really traditional country," Moore said.
He is pleased with how the live music video for "Kinda Don't Care" turned out. "The person that filmed it was super talented. This was our first live video since our first album," he said. "We thought it was a cool song to do a live video for, and they did a great job," he said.
Moore acknowledged that his previous radio single "Somebody Else Will" was a big record for him. "The song 'Somebody Else Will' was a little bit different. It was fun to see it do so well, since it was so different. 'Kinda Don't Care' is right up my alley," he said.
The country star revealed that he has recorded tracks for a new album. "We went in a few weeks ago, and we recorded all the tracks for a brand new album. Personally, I think it is the best album we've ever recorded," he said, prior to hinting that it will have a '90s country sound to it.
Moore continued, "The new album will be like a super-charged version of my first album. It will be like my first album on steroids. The songwriting on there is really good, and it is super traditional country. It also has elements of southern rock in there, which comes out naturally for me."
His plans for the future are to finish this new album, and fans can expect a new single from this upcoming studio effort. "I am looking forward to that," he said. "My main focus right now is to keep working this 'Kinda Don't Care' song," he added.
On his summer touring, Moore said, "We are in the spot of the year, where we do all the big fairs and festivals. Festivals are always a lot of fun. There is a whole different vibe in the summer when you do the outdoor big festivals, when you play with other artists, and get to catch up with buddies. It's a whole different vibe from doing the arena shows. It is fun to get a good dose of that for sure. It is kind of like an all day party for the fans, as opposed to just a night party."
A Valory Music Company recording artist, Moore had nothing but the greatest remarks for Country Music Hall of Famer Charlie Daniels. "Charlie is a great human being," he said. "Charlie Daniels is a really, really good guy."
Over the last 10 years, Moore noted that he sees "a lot of hard work, a lot of ups and downs, but obviously, it has been a fun journey." "The fact that we have done this for over a decade, successfully now, is mind-blowing," he said. "It takes me doing a lot of hard work, and being away from my family, but even more so it takes the fans support, and the band and crew working their rear ends off. Country radio has been really good to us. It really takes a giant team effort, and I am super thankful. We have been very blessed."
One of his proudest professional moments involved playing the Grand Ole Opry, especially at the mother church, the Ryman Auditorium, this past May. "We actually did our first headlining show in May at the Ryman Auditorium, where we took our tour there, and we sold it out. That was an honor of a lifetime," he said. "Being able to play that stage with my own tour was awesome, but to sell it out was beyond cool."
His album Kinda Don't Care is available on iTunes.
