Justin Moore loves guns

Posted By on Tue, Jun 21, 2011 at 3:53 PM

Justin Moore has plenty of small town, Southern bona fides: He grew up in Poyen (Grant County), population 272, on 100 acres. His grandma's name was Faynette. One of his grandfathers — PaPa — had him up in a deer stand before he was one.

Outlaws Like Me

On his debut album, he was content to reduce his small town bio into cliches: “It's a dirt road, a fishin' pole, a cold beer sittin on a tailgate, an old church, a kind word, it's where I was born and raised.”

I haven't listened to all of his new one, "Outlaws Like Me," which is in stores today. But it looks to be more of the same. “She’s good with a cane pole, good with a gun” and “likes to roll in the hay,” he sings on "My Kind of Woman," a song that'll probably be the second single off the album. Unless Moore and his label decide to really rally the base and risk alienating everybody else and make "Guns" a single.

Listen to it above. If you don't listen to contemporary country much, I suspect you'll think it's a joke. But no.

Some sample lyrics:

These days I go down to Walmart and they sell em in the back
Some people want to take 'em away
Why don't you go bust those boys that's selling crack?
Guns! Whether Remingtons or Glocks
Come on man it ain't like I'm a slingin' em on the block
I'm gonna tell you once and listen son
As long as I'm alive and breathing, you won't take my guns

  • City ethics update; campaign limit was supposed to help the little guy

    Some more history on the Little Rock city ordinance that limits candidates for mayor and City Board to raising campaign funds to five months before the November 2018 election. It raises questions not only about Warwick Sabin's fund-raising tactics, but also Mayor Mark Stodola's carryover money.
