Justin Moore Cries, Thanks Fans for Allowing His Dreams to Come True [Watch]
There is no denying that Justin Moore is a family man, and at a recent hometown show he brought out his wife and three young daughters to thank his fans for their continuous support over the years.
During an emotional speech, the "You Look Like I Need a Drink" singer wiped away tears while speaking of his journey to Nashville.
"I moved to Nashville when I was 18 years old because my parents were awesome and supported me," he tells the audience in a video clip captured from side-stage. "I moved there thinking that maybe one day I'll get one song on the radio. I never had any idea that I would come back here almost a decade later of doing this. I really didn't."
Moore's Arkansas hometown is home to less than 300 people. The singer says that his dream of being in music is "unfathomable," and that "you can't dream this big where I'm from." But after witnessing success firsthand, he urges the crowd to chase after their dreams.
"If you want to do something, go do it because you can," Moore tells fans. "It doesn't matter where you're from. It doesn't matter if you come from some tiny town in south Arkansas. You can do it. You've made all my dreams come true."
Later, he tears up when introducing his wife of nine years and their girls, who share the stage with him before performing "Small Town USA."
"Most importantly, you have made the dreams of my daughters, 2, 4 and 6 — you have made the dreams that they don't even know that they have yet come true — and for that I will be forever grateful to you," Moore says, wiping tears. "God bless you. I sincerely appreciate what you have done for me."
In August's Taste of Country cover story promoting Moore's new album, Kinda Don't Care, the singer reiterates how much of a family man he really is, saying:
"I make this very clear: This is my job and my career, but it’s not my most important job. My most important job is being Dad to three little girls, and that’s also my favorite job, even though this one’s pretty cool."
