Justin Moore Learns Lessons on the Road From Brad Paisley
Throughout 2010, Justin Moore spent much of his touring life on the road with Brad Paisley as a part of the American Saturday Night tour, followed by the H2O Frozen Over tour. In November, the first leg of the H2O Frozen Over tour wrapped, leaving Moore with a feeling he won’t soon forget.
“It’s obvious to me that Brad and the other guys and gals who are in Brad’s position, they don’t get there by accident,” Moore tells Taste of Country. “There’s obviously a method to the madness. Brad, on a personal level, is a great guy, and very, very good to the opening acts like myself and the other guys who were out there when I was. That went from him all the way down to the lighting guys and the monitor guys and the stage guys. Everybody in his crew were just great to be around.”
Moore says he made time spent on the road with Paisley a learning experience on many levels. “Well I learned I probably need to practice the guitar a little more,” he laughs. “Being around guys like him, I think you act as a sponge and kind of soak up different things … maybe this would be cool down the road if we ever get to this point or I like the way they did this or that. It was a great opportunity for us. We owe a lot to him for our success over the past year … we really do.”
Moore is continuing to sign on to major tours once again this year. In June, Moore will hit the road with Sara Evans and Easton Corbin on Rascal Flatts‘ Flatt Fest 2011 tour. Click here for a list of dates where the tour will be stopping.
