ANNNOUNCEMENT: JUSTIN MOORE TO PERFORM AT THE PORTER COUNTY FAIR ON SATURDAY JULY 20th!
When Justin Moore tells his fans at all of his shows that he's "proud to be from small town USA", it is from the heart. The Poyen Arkansas native grew up in a town with a population of 272, the sign with that declaration sits in his grandparents front yard. He graduated from high school with 37 classmates.
So how does a kid from a town that small work his way up to Music Row, a record deal and eventual stardom as a country music singer touring with the biggest acts in country music today? How does it happen that one of the first songs he writes in Nashville winds up hitting number 1 on the country charts? How does the kid from the small town follow that up with a top 5 hit, a top 15 hit and his second number 1 and fastest rising single from his second album "If Heaven Wasn't So Far Away?"
How does he get voted "2009's Best Male Country Artist" by Billboard Magazine?
He starts by being true to himself, in the way he lives and in the songs he writes. When he sings about growing up in Poyen in his number 1 hit, "Small Town USA" and that "some people called it prison when I was growin' up, but these are my roots and this is what I love", he means every word of it.

With Special Guest Maggie Rose!
Music is a powerful means of expression and rarely has a young performer displayed better command of the vehicle than Maggie Rose. Possessing a strong, warm voice that is alternately playful or poignant as the subject matter dictates, Maggie has a gift for penning insightful songs and delivering them with emotional punch. Working with legendary producer James Stroud, Maggie has crafted a debut album filled with potent songs, each one anchored by her riveting vocals.
With one listen to her impressive voice, it's obvious Maggie could have chosen any musical genre and found success, but country seemed like home. "I did have a lot of influences," the Maryland native says recalling her childhood. "My mom exposed me to great female artists like Mary Chapin Carpenter, Bonnie Raitt, Linda Ronstadt and Trisha Yearwood, really powerful female voices. http://maggierosemusic.com/d2cpreorder/
