Justin Moore Plays Comedian in Road Videos
Justin Moore has a lot to celebrate. His fastest rising single, ‘If Heaven Wasn’t So Far Away,’ rose to No. 1 this week on the Billboard & Country Aircheck/USA Today Country Singles charts. The song shows the Arkansas’ native’s softer, more sensitive side. But it’s his comedic side you’ll see if you search for him on YouTube.
“When I first came out, before we came out to radio, we had some underground success and a lot of it has to do with me acting like an idiot on YouTube,” Justin tells The Boot with a laugh. “I’m pretty good at being an idiot, so we just turned the camera on and whatever happens happens. I’m on the road with all my best friends in the world so we get to travel around, see the country and play music together. You never know what’s going to come from conversations we have.”
Apparently some of those conversations are centered around poking fun at Justin and his small stature. In one video, he wakes up in a crib before a band meeting! He also stages a “fight” with bandmates who are hitting on his wife and even provides golf tips in another video. And there will likely be more to come.
“We’ve done it throughout our career. Just turn on the video camera and let it go,” Justin explains. “The stuff we think is real funny we stick on YouTube, and the stuff we think makes us look too stupid we don’t.”
