Justin Moore Embraces Classic Country on New Song ‘Jesus and Jack Daniels’

Latest track off Moore’s upcoming ‘Late Nights and Longnecks’ juxtaposes mom’s religion with dad’s boozing

Justin Moore has released the track list for his upcoming album Late Nights and Longnecks, along with the new song “Jesus and Jack Daniels,” a slice of classic country that makes good use of Moore’s native Arkansas warble.

Written by Moore with Paul DiGiovanni, Chase McGill and Jeremy Stover, “Jesus and Jack Daniels” juxtaposes the compassionate religion of the narrator’s mother with the tough discipline of a father who enjoys his liquor. Case in point: when the singer’s brother is caught with weed, mom puts him on her prayer list, while dad “whooped him with a Zebco” fishing pole.

“Jesus and Jack Daniels” underscores Moore’s recommitment to a traditional country sound — pedal-steel great Paul Franklin plays on the song and throughout the album — after having hits with more contemporary fare like “Lettin’ the Night Roll” and “Somebody Else Will.”

Currently on tour, Moore will release Late Nights and Longnecks, his fifth LP, on April 26th.
