Justin Moore Commemorates First Headlining Gig at Ryman Auditorium With New Live Album

Justin Moore Commemorates First Headlining Gig at Ryman Auditorium With New Live Album

Justin Moore will commemorate his first headlining show at Nashville’s Ryman Auditorium in May 2018 by releasing a new album, Live at the Ryman, on Sept. 25.

The 17-song album features many of Justin’s fan-favorite No. 1 hits, including “Small Town USA,” “You Look Like I Need a Drink,” “Somebody Else Will” and more, as well as covers of Waylon Jennings’ “I Ain’t Living Long Like This” and Hank Williams Jr.’s “Country State of Mind.” Special guests Chris Janson, David Lee Murphy, and Ricky Skaggs and The Whites are featured on the album.

“A live album is something I’ve always had a desire to record and have out for our fans,” says Justin. “We had the chance to record our Ryman show last year. The crowd was unreal. The venue, as we all know, was great, as it always is. Luckily, I didn’t screw it up. In all seriousness, the energy we were able to capture that night, was electric. In this strange time with no live music, I thought this could be fun for our fans right now. Crack a cold one around the house, a campfire, deer camp, the beach and enjoy some live music. Hopefully, we have the chance to do it in person soon. Until then, enjoy this live album from my band, my crew, and myself from the Ryman.”

Dustin Lynch & MacKenzie Porter talk about “Thinking ‘Bout You”

Dustin Lynch & MacKenzie Porter talk about “Thinking ‘Bout You”

Dustin Lynch recalls the exact moment during the writing of “Thinking ‘Bout You” when they thought it could work as a collaboration, “We realized, after we got to the chorus, wait a second, this is the duet moment we’ve been looking for. We can have the girl on the other end of the line, and her come in on the second verse, and now it’s a conversation. And I do think that’s why it’s so approachable and people relate to it and those phone calls can be life changing sometimes.”

As the song is knocking on the door to the number-one spot on the country music airplay chart, MacKenzie Porter shares that she and Dustin haven’t had a lot of opportunities to perform the hit song together, “The crazy part is like, we’ve actually probably sang it separately, more than we’ve sang it together, because our touring schedules are different. So then when we do get to do it together, it’s like oh yeah this is how, this is how it’s supposed to go, I’m not supposed to sing Dustin’s first verse, which I do in my own show. It just feels so natural.”
