Country music singer songwriter Justin Moore is ready to take on Daytona.    The Valory Music Group star is headed to the big race to support a special concert to honor heroes and officially launch Crown Royal’s search for the individual who will receive naming rights to the 2013 Brickyard 400. Every year the whisky brand names the July race after a deserving hero through its “Your Hero’s Name Here” program.  Head to for more.

 Justin Moore’s Nascar Connection

Justin Moore is also ready to get into the new NASCAR season.   He names Carl Edwards as a good buddy and featured him in a recent video for the hit “Bait a Hook”  See it HERE

As for his race picks, “My picks… whoo.. I’m a Carl Edwards fan we’re kinda rootin for him… but he got a little dinged up in practice yesterday, I don’t know what the situation with the car is, but my gut tells me Tony Stewart, his cars been really good this week, Danica being on the pole is an example of that but he’s always had this race elude him for whatever reason.  He’s always ran good at Daytona and other races so I think he gets the ever elusive 500 win this week.”

Moore’s New Country Song and Tour

Moore’s been busy lately.  He just ended a run as the opener for Eric Church’s tour, earned his second Gold certified album and – off the success of his latest number one radio single “‘Til My Last Day” – announced his first headlining tour dubbed Outlaws Like Me.

He says his new single is called “Point Of View” and it’s another love song.  “I’m excited this song’s a tough, rockin’, tempo love song.” He say, “Hopefully you guys are ready for it as well.”   Look for it as part of a new album expected this summer.

While at the Daytona 500 Justin will kick off the entry period, submit the first official nominations for the Crown Royal Search and do a show with his biggest songs in the Crown Royal footprint (in the Fan Zone outside the track) on race day at 10 a.m.

Civil Wars Tour Cancelled

Posted on 08 November 2012 by Bill West

What is up with The Civil Wars? They have cancelled the big upcoming tour stops saying “internal discord and irreconcilable differences of ambition” is the cause. The critically acclaimed and awards(grammy) winning duo, used divorce terminology (they are not married) but left out a lot of details. The big disclosure came via a lone post on their Facebook page.

We sincerely apologize for the canceling of all of our tour dates. It is something we deeply regret. However, due to internal discord and irreconcilable differences of ambition we are unable to continue as a touring entity at this time. We thank each and every one of you for your amazing love & support. Our sincere hope is to have new music for you in 2013.


What’s next for this group?  More music?

– Joy Williams & John Paul White.

Jake Owen’s “The One That Got Away” is already a big hit on the radio from his top selling album “Barefoot BlueJean Night”  and his new EP Endless Summer is tearing up the downloads and he’s ready to hit the Road with Florida Georgia Line on the CMT Tour.   But the BIG news these days for Jake and wife Lacey is that they are expecting their first child — a baby girl — later this month. 

Jake says that his parents are very excited about a grandchild, “Yeah, my parents — as most parents are — are very excited about havin’ grandkids. My mom has asked me for years, ‘When are you gonna get married? When are you gonna get married? I want grandbabies.’ And I told her that it just was gonna be…it’s gonna take the right person, and I really never thought I’d get married, but a lot of things in my life have happened when I least expected it, and Lacey came into my life at a time when I needed it most — and needed her the most, and thankfully she’ll be here with me ‘til my dying day.”

“My grandparents are super excited about being great-grandparents, my parents are excited about being grandparents, and I’m excited about bein’ a parent, so there’s a lot of cool feelings goin’ around the Owen household these days.”

Tim and Kenny Talk

Posted on 07 June 2012 by editor

mcgraw_chesney_concertPEOPLE Country sits down with summer’s hottest touring duo, Tim McGraw and Kenny Chesney, who open up about their 21-year friendship.  A decade after they last toured together, the forty-something singers (Tim’s 45, Kenny, 44)  are combining their star power for this summer’s 22-city Brothers of the Sun stadium tour after scoring a hit with their duet “Feel Like a Rock Star” off Kenny’s new CD Welcome to the Fishbowl.  As they gear up for rehearsals, the longtime pals took time with PEOPLE Country to discuss their friendship and touring together.


What will it be like to go on the road together again?

KC:  As good of friends as we are, we’ve been on different paths for several years.  To be able to spend the whole summer together and reconnect is awesome.  One of the reasons there’s so much chemistry onstage is that Tim and I both grew up the same way; we both have a lot of the same heroes – George StraitBruce SpringsteenKeith Whitley – and we’re both competitive.

TM:  That’s a good thing.  It makes us elevate our game.


How did you two meet?

TM:  Tracy Lawrence and Kenny and I were running around town, playing clubs, when we crossed paths.

KC:  Tim and I met at Mack’s Café, a meat-and-three.  I ate there every day.


Where you competitive back then?

KC:  Not really.  Tim already had a record deal, and I was just trying to survive.

TM:  I had a record deal that wasn’t doing anything.  Tracy [Lawrence] had success before either of us, and we both watched him take off.

KC:  To me, Tim had made it.  I remember him telling me when “Indian Outlaw” hit, “If this song doesn’t hit, I might be in trouble.  I might be going back to Louisiana!”  Watching Tim’s success gave me something to shoot for as an artist.


What do you most admire about one another?

TM:  Kenny’s focus.  He’s very smart and has a grasp of the details of the things he wants to accomplish.

KC:  In being that focused and driven, you struggle with balance.  Tim has put out great songs, put on great shows, branched out into the movies, but he has a family, and he balances both worlds.  I can’t imagine how tough that is.  I mean, I just got a dog and I thought I was going to have an anxiety fit.  That’s just a dog!

TM:  Well, I appreciate that, but I have to step in and say my wife [Faith Hill] is the reason it’s balanced, not me.


Has Faith ever tried to fix Kenny up?

KC:  I don’t think Faith wants to be involved in that – she wouldn’t want to disappoint anyone!  There was one time she said, “Kenny, don’t you want a couple of these?” meaning kids.  And it was like, “Yeah…maybe…one day…”

TM:  Don’t wait too long, man!  You’ll be like Larry King!            (Cover StoryPage 52)

Much more on Tim and Kenny, including an exclusive photo of Kenny’s new dog, Pancho, is featured in the July 2012 issue of PEOPLE Country, which hits newsstands nationwide on Friday, June 8th.
