Justin Moore and Wife Still Working on Names for Baby on the Way

With Justin Moore and his wife, Kate, already the proud parents of two darling little girls, you'd think they would already have a good pool of possible baby names to pull from for their baby due in July, especially if it happens to a boy.

"Well, we don't," Justin tells Country Weekly with laughter. "We have a name that we’ve always wanted to name a boy if we had a boy, and now Kate doesn't want to do it. We’re going to have to get to thinking about it."

But waiting until the last minute to name their child isn't anything out of the ordinary for Justin and Kate. "With [our youngest daughter] Kennedy, I think it was probably a week before she was born before we knew her name," he admits, laughing. "I think it gets harder with the more you have I guess!"

With baby No. 3 coming this summer, Justin says he will be slowing down the amount of time spent on the road to help Kate and his girls adjust to being a party of five at home.

"I’m not going to play but 100 shows this year," says Justin. "I think we played 140 or 150 last year and 200 the previous year, so I’m really backing it down quite a bit. I was going to do that anyway [before we knew we were expecting again]. We’re pretty much playing Thursday, Friday and Saturday nights all year. In the summertime, we'll have some random days because of some of the fairs and festivals. So if we play 100 shows, I’ll be home a couple hundred days this year, which will be nice."

Justin is currently headlining his Off the Beaten Path Tour, also featuring opening acts Josh Thompson and Randy Houser.
