Justin Moore has set his first-ever headline date at the historic Ryman Auditorium in Nashville, TN for Wednesday, May 2, 2018. Mercury Nashville's Travis Denning and The Valory Music Co. and SiriusXM Highway Find Artist Tyler Rich will open the show, which is separate from Moore's current arena-dwelling "Hell On A Highway Tour."
"It's sentimental because I'm a huge fan of the tradition of country music," Moore tells Cindy Watts of The Tennessean. "For me, playing the Ryman is more about that and all the people who have played there and what it's meant to country music as a whole from generation to generation."
Fans can expect to hear chart-toppers like "If Heaven Wasn't So Far Away," "Small Town USA," and "Outlaws Like Me," as well as songs from Moore's third and latest number one Billboard Country Album 'Kinda Don't Care' (2016). The album's title track is the Arkansas native's current radio single and can be heard here: youtu.be/bju5qykEYEY
Almost exactly nine years-to-date prior (4.30.09), Moore first graced the hallowed stage of The Mother Church as part of Opry Country Classics, performing songs like "I've Always Been Crazy" (Waylon Jennings), "Amarillo by Morning" (George Strait) and "You Never Even Called Me By My Name" (David Allen Coe). He has also performed at the Ryman as part of Charlie Daniels' Christmas 4 Kids and Marty Stuart's Annual Late Night Jam, and additional performances in Nashville include concerts at Nissan Stadium and Bridgestone Arena.
