Back on June 7, I put up an article I called “Justin Moore … going from a small town to a big career.” (You can read that article by clicking here.) The singer of “Small Town U.S.A.” and “Back That Thing Up,” recently let us all know that it’s not just his career that’s growing … his family is, too.
Justin and his wife are expecting their first child in February. And unlike the Paisley’s who kept us in the dark for a while about the name of their second child … we already know that Justin and his wfie are expecting a girl, and her name will be Ella Cole.
I liked what Justin said about the name, in an article posted on The Boot. “Although naming a child can be a daunting task for some couples, Justin says he and his wife made an agreement early on. "The agreement is my wife makes the decision and there you go," he deadpans.”
Justin recently performed at our Electric Cowboy in Johnson City, Tenn. I checked his tour schedule to see where he’s going next, and he doesn’t seem to have much on there. All I found was one date, Oct. 3, at the Kentucky Apple Festival, in Paintsville, Ky.
That’s the same weekend as our Apple Festival here in Erwin, Tenn. If that really is the only thing he has lined up right now, I know that won’t be the case for long. “Small Town U .S.A.” is sitting on the No. 5 spot on Country’s Top 40 chart, and I have no doubt we’ll be seeing more of Justin’s music in the top 5 in the future.
And speaking of our upcoming Apple Festival … I better get to the office, because we are going to be really busy at work between now and then.
So on the way out – two things, first – Congratulations Mr. and Mrs. Moore on the expected new arrival; and second … Here’s Justin, and “Small Town U.S.A.”
That’s it for now – talk to you all later!
