Justin Moore on His Kids: ‘All That Matters Is Them’

Justin Moore is a father of four, and despite his high-profile career in country music, he says he places family first in his life above all else.

Moore and his wife Kate just welcomed their fourth child on June 11, one week to the day before Father’s Day. Thomas South Moore is the couple’s first boy, joining sisters Ella Kole, 7, Kennedy Faye, 5, and Rebecca Klein, who is nearly 3.

“You realize real quick when you have kids, and I know other people out there listening to this know what I’m talking about. If you have kids, you realize real quick that you really don’t matter, especially as much as you thought you did. All that matters is them,” Moore says in an interview with his label, Big Machine Label Group.

Moore has been on the road in 2017 promoting his most recent album, 2016’s Kinda Don’t Care, which scored a No. 1 hit with its lead single, “You Look Like I Need a Drink.” His current single, “Somebody Else Will,” is currently at No. 17 on Billboard‘s Hot Country Songs chart and climbing, but Moore insists that comes second to his real purpose in life.

“It’s important to me and always has been that I be a good parent and be a good role model for them,” he says of his kids. “I have the perfect mom and dad and I want to make them proud, you know, I want to make my wife proud. If somebody could watch me all the time, I want them to be proud of what they’re watching.”
