Justin Moore is headlining his own Outlaws Like Me Tour these days, but before his name was on the marquee, he had a chance to open tours for the likes of Rascal Flatts, Brad Paisley, Blake Shelton and Miranda Lambert. He learned a lot from each tour headliner — but one lesson has stuck with him .
“Every time I’ve went out and been an opening act playing for twenty minutes, every headliner made me feel like I was a very important part of their tour and what they were doing,” he said. “I think when you treat people with respect they tend to give it right back to you. They go out and put on a great show and wanna do like we’ve wanted to do over the years. They wanna go out there and put on a heck of a show, obviously, for themselves, but they also want people to leave there going, “Man. What a great tour that Justin’s having.”
When it comes to his current opening acts, Jon Pardi and Dustin Lynch, Justin plans to pay that lesson forward. “We’re definitely going to treat them like family,” he said.
Justin’s new single, “Point At You,” is at radio now. It is the lead single from his upcoming project, expected to be released this fall.
