Justin Moore's Life Has Changed


Justin Moore's life has been a whirlwind of change thanks to his two hits, "Small Town USA" and "Backwoods," and now with his upcoming single, "How I Got to Be This Way," getting off to a great start on the country charts.

But Justin says it is his daughter, Ella Kole, who has changed he and his wife, Kate, the most. “It’s kind of crazy how it immediately changes your whole perspective on life," he tells Country Weekly on the set of his new music video. "We were not expecting to have a kid. She was a surprise for us. If I could handpick a time [to have a child], this wouldn’t be it. It’s made me a better guy, obviously. People can tell you until they are blue in the face how much you can love someone, but you don’t truly understand it until you have a child. She’s a little over four months now, and she’s really started locking in and smiling and cooing and stuff like that. You know that even though she can’t say anything, she knows who Mom and Dad are, and it’s pretty unbelievable."

Justin says that while he would love to have Ella on the road with him, that won't happen anytime soon. "She’s still young, and we’re just in one bus right now," he says. "It’s difficult to have a baby on board. It’s such a big deal to keep her on schedule at this point. Once we move into another bus or have a couple of buses and she gets a little older, she’ll be able to come out with us.”

On the set of his music video, Justin lets loose with his magnetic performance style, but offstage, he's more subdued. “You've seen me away from the stage and I’m really laid-back and reserved. I’m not shy or anything. I’m just kind of a go-with-the-flow kind of guy," says Justin. "When I get onstage I just go beserk."

You can catch Justin's live show while he is out with Brad Paisley as part of Brad's H2O tour.
