Seven years ago when Justin Moore left Poyen, Arkansas for Nashville, he had the hopes and dreams that all aspiring, young artists have. The years of hard work and determination eventually paid off for the 24 year-old when Scott Borchetta signed him to his independent label, Valory Music Group.
With his collection of songs, written during his time in Nashville, Justin headed into the studio, but he was surprised by the amount of work that was still ahead of him.
“I didn’t realize what all went into making an album. I’d done demos in town for years and years, but it’s a process,” he says. “It was really hard to pick songs because they are kind of like your babies…you can’t just pick one or two of them. I was going to the record label going ‘we’ve gotta put this on the record…ok, this is another one we’ve gotta put on the record.’ Finally, Scott goes ‘Justin, we’re not putting a box set out on your first album!’”
