Single available now digitally and at country radio
Justin Moore serves another sobering dose with “On the Rocks,” the third track from his forthcoming album Late Nights And Longnecks due July 26th via The Valory Music Co. Moore penned the definitive country anthem alongside Paul DiGiovanni, Chase McGill and Jeremy Stover, projecting a signature sound that has previously elevated him to the top of the Country singles charts seven times.
GRAMMY.com revealed the song early before its digital release noting, “Justin Moore takes vocals to the next level in ‘On the Rocks’.” A quintessential breakup song, it is a strong pour of heartbreak over cocktails: “Before I slammed the door / I said go to hell / Called my buddies up / Now they’re watchin’ me drink by myself / ‘Til they cut me off / Or ‘til the doors are locked / Same old back againer on a bender / Bartender, don’t stop / Pour it on me / ‘Cause this whiskey ain’t the only thing on the rocks.”
Stover and Scott Borchetta co-produced Moore’s entire fifth studio album. The lead single from the project, “The Ones That Didn’t Make It Back Home,” is quickly approaching Top 15 at country radio and is reaching unexpected audiences. Moore performed the emotional tune during two recent national television appearances – the National Memorial Day Concert on PBS and the National Armed Forces Memorial Day Parade.
He will perform both songs coming up at The GRAMMY Museum’s “The Drop” event on Monday, July 15th in Los Angeles. Pre-sale for the event is now available, with general public tickets going on sale Thursday, June 20th.
Moore has built a loyal fanbase over the past decade with his traditional Country persona and captivating live shows. Moore boasts three consecutive No. 1 album debuts with Kinda Don’t Care, gold-certified Off The Beaten Path and platinum-certified Justin Moore in addition to platinum-certified Outlaws Like Me. He holds seven No. 1 singles under his signature white cowboy hat, including “You Look Like I Need A Drink,” “Somebody Else Will,” “Point at You,” “Lettin’ The Night Roll,” “Small Town USA,” “If Heaven Wasn’t So Far Away,” and “Till My Last Day” as well as seven Top 10 hits. The ACM Award winner has multiple ACM, ACA and ACC Awards nominations. He has shared the stage with Hank Williams Jr., Brad Paisley, Miranda Lambert and Brantley Gilbert and is currently traversing coast-to-coast on headline dates.
