Justin Moore has grown up in a patriotic family. Dozens of his relatives served in the military, so he has always had a sense of pride and appreciation for those who have fought for our country, past and present.
Justin tells us: [“One of my grandpa’s retired out of the Navy, the other was in the Air Force. I was super close to both of them. I mean my entire family was pretty patriotic in that sense, and, you know, I have countless uncles and cousins and that kind of stuff who’ve served You know, it was well known that, ‘Hey, we need to be really thankful for these men and women and what they do for us on a daily basis.’ At times I’m sure it can feel like they’re taken for granted but certainly that’s not the case with me.”] SOUNDCUE (:31 OC: . . . case with me.)
Prior to COVID, Justin made a point to thank the military from stage during every show.
One of his more recent chart-toppers was a tribute to our military called "The Ones That Didn't Make It Back Home." He played that song during last night's (Tuesday, Nov. 10th) Salute to our Heroes Virtual Concert in conjuction with the Robert Irvine Foundation.
