Justin Moore Fishes for Balance
Justin Moore's life has been thrown into the fast lane in recent months with the release of his self-titled debut album and experiencing life at the top of the charts with his No. 1 hit, 'Small Town U.S.A.' The country newcomer finds himself spending less time at home each week, but when his bus rolls back into Nashville, the first thing Justin does when he walks through the door is play with his dog, Hank (named after Hank Williams, Jr.).
"My wife can tell him I'm coming home, and he sits at the window and watches for me," Justin tells The Boot. "He goes crazy!"
When Justin does find himself home more than a few hours here and there, he enjoys hunting with fellow country singer Rhett Akins. He also loves finding the perfect fishing hole to unwind.
"I fish a lot! If I ain't on the road, I'm at a lake fishing. You've got to have those things that balance you out," Justin says. " When you're out on the road, it's like Disney World -- people screaming and it's not real. You're on a high for so long, and then you come back home. You've got to have something to balance that out."
Justin better enjoy hunting and fishing while he can. In just a few months, he'll be on daddy duty during his time at home. His wife is expecting their first child, a baby girl named Ella Cole, this February.
