Justin Moore, ‘Lettin’ the Night Roll’ [Listen]
Justin Moore‘s big country voice shines during the final choruses of ‘Lettin’ the Night Roll,’ the second single from ‘Off the Beaten Path.’ His loyal fans will recognize the performance, and fans of country music will recognize the story he tells.
The Arkansas native’s new gesture name drops a brand of truck and stereo speakers while offering a sweet country date to a girl with big blue eyes. The specifics are what set the song apart from others that borrow from the same spice rack of country song cooking. It’s easy see what they look like, smiling as they blow through red lights.
“That water tower’s got the sun going down behind it / If there’s a good time in this town girl we’re gonna find it / You looked so damn good climbing up in my Chevy / Tried to play it cool but I knew already,” Moore sings to begin this mid-tempo song.
‘One Dirt Road’ was scheduled to be the second single from the album, and it’s not clear why Team Justin changed directions. This new song is likely to be embraced enthusiastically by country radio. There are few artists proudly waving the traditional country flag (and enjoying mainstream success), but Moore is one fans and the industry are beginning to stand behind proudly.
Why Fans Will Love It: ‘Lettin’ the Night Roll’ is another right down Justin Moore Main St. The singer isn’t veering from a course that’s clearly working for him.
Key Lyrics: “I love the way you lean that seat back, steal my ball cap / Pull it down over your blue eyes / Watchin’ your hair fly out the window / Just lettin’ the night roll / And I can’t wait to see where it goes”
Did You Know?: Justin Moore is an avid bass fisherman, but needed some help with catching trout. He tells Taste of Country he wanted to jerk his rod back with each bite, instead of just gently tugging to hook his dinner.
