Justin Moore Set for Golfing on Flatts Tour
Justin Moore's got a lot to be excited about. He's out on the road with Miranda Lambert, and he just finished recording his upcoming album, which he says will be titled Outlaws Like Me.
Of the title track, Justin says, "'Outlaws Like Me' is probably my favorite song I’ve ever written. The song and that title sum up where I am in my life. The song is about the battle that everyone has between good and evil. You want to do the right thing and you know it’s what you should do, but sometimes it’s harder than you can even explain. I’m very excited about it.
"It's some of the best songwriting I’ve ever done," adds Justin, who wrote the tune with his producer, Jeremy Stover.
In addition to the new album, Justin will soon hit the road with Rascal Flatts for Flatts Fest, where he hopes to get in a few good rounds of golf, as well as play some good music. "Joe Don [Rooney] and I talked about it a few months ago when we were talking about putting the tour together. Darius [Rucker] was out on the Brad Paisley tour with us and we played golf about every day. We kind of talked about the fact that I was going out with Flatts this year. He said, ‘It’s a good golf tour.’ The way we judge tours is whether or not it’s a good golf tour or not," Justin says with a laugh.
So who's got more game on the golf course? "As bad as I hate to admit it, [Darius] has got me beat by a few strokes," says Justin. "I don’t know that I beat him any, but I did get a lot better. I went from an 18 handicap to a 10 handicap. He’s close to a scratch golfer. I had to let him win because he’s getting older. He’s got a few good years left and then I’ll be whooping him from then on out,” Justin says jokingly.
It probably doesn't hurt that Darius has golfed with legend Tiger Woods. "Yeah, he’s had some unfair advantages,” Justin notes good-naturedly.
