4. Outlaws Like Me (2011)
“Outlaws Like Me is still a great album and I enjoy it and will continue to listen to it, just not quite on par with the first album in my opinion. There are definitely some great songs on the album and they get regular play on my country playlist.”
3. Off The Beaten Path (2013)
“Cannot find a single dud on this album. This entire album is enjoyable from beginning to end. Play in order and off you go on a journey. The track order almost feels like life itself – starts with a bang, learn a couple things, appreciate companionship, and then slowly drift into the sunset (One Dirt Road, Some Ol’ Redneck Reason).”
2. Kinda Don’t Care (2016)
“This album is different from his earlier work, and he intended this to push his musical character, but it is still Justin Moore. He intended this album to sound and feel the way it does according to his interviews. This seems to be a progression in the trajectory that Off The Beaten Path set in motion. My initial reaction is that this is less country, more pop, but it’s not necessarily a bad thing, you’ll need an open mind if you’re a fan.”
1. Justin Moore (2009)
“It doesn’t matter if you are or aren’t a Country Music fan Justin Moore has a song that will touch your heart. He is man that grew up in a small town in Arkansas and isn’t afraid to sing about it. His songs range from his grandpa to growing up in a small town in the USA. He definitely is taking the country music scene to new heights and I look forward to seeing where his career and great voice goes in the future (he has a new album out later this year).”
