We'll make it up to you guys, my family needs me." If you've got tickets for a Justin Moore show in the coming days, check with the venue before heading out to the show.
From The Boot...Justin Moore not only lost his grandfather, Tom 'PawPaw' Moore, last week, but late Sunday night (Nov. 29) his Aunt Glenda lost her six year battle with cancer. Justin's grandfather, who was retired from the Navy, was diagnosed six months ago with cancer and was 72 years old. His aunt was in her early 50s.
The Poyen, Ark. native was very close to both his grandfather and his aunt. His spokesperson tells The Boot that they were two of the most important people in his life. Glenda, who was his mother's sister, was like a second mother to him, while Justin's grandfather taught the singer to hunt and fish, and had him in a deer stand when he was just two years old. Justin tweeted on Monday, "Thanks for all the thoughts and prayers," and we were told he's "going to miss them more than you can imagine."
