How do country stars come up with the names of their tours? Well Justin Moore basically got his from Luke Bryan.
“Hell On A Highway” is a song on Justin’s new album Kinda Don’t Care, but when he first heard it Luke already had it on hold. “Somebody sent me that song and immediately I loved it,” Justin says through his record label, noting that he immediately told that person he wanted to record it. “And they said, ‘Well, Luke Bryan’s got it on hold.’ And I go, ‘Well, if Luke wants it he’s gonna get it.”
Nevertheless, Justin took the song to his record label president Scott Borchetta, who agreed that Justin should record it. “He said, ‘We have to get this song.'” Justin continues. “And so I said, ‘Well I’ll just text or call Luke.’ I don’t remember which one I did, but he hit me back and said, ‘Man, if you love it, take it.’ And that speaks volumes of the type guy that Luke is. Luke and I have known each other since either of us had a record deal so we’ve known each other a long time.”
Justin’s Hell On A Highway Tour kicks off October 13th in Monroe, LA. Check the schedule here. His current single is the album’s title track “Kinda Don’t Care.”
