Due to his #1 hit, "Small TownUSA" and his Top 5 album debut, Justin Moore can add another achievement to that list as he has been named Billboard's Top New Country Artist for the year. Justin shares, "There are a lot of great artists that never get to experience this feeling. I am forever indebted to everyone at country radio, and all the fans for this year. This record has changed my year, my career, and ultimately…my life!"
With 2009 coming to a close, Moore has a big year planned for 2010. First on deck for the newcomer is his opening slot on Brad Paisley's "2010 American Saturday Night Tour." Justin says, "I can't wait to bring our new stage show to Brad's fans, and I think the mix of our music with Brad and Miranda's [Lambert] should be a good mix for the fans. I can't stress what a huge opportunity this is, and I can't thank Brad enough." Moore hopes to squeeze in a little time for one of his favorite pastimes with his fellow opener on the tour. He jokes, "Miranda and I both love to hunt, so maybe we'll find time to go hunting if Blake [Shelton] doesn't kick my butt!"
Justin will be in Central Wisconsin this summer as part of the Fuddfest lineup for 2010.
