Justin Moore’s star has grown significantly since he was named Billboard’s “Top New Country Artist of 2009.” This Southern Country stylist has sold over 1.2 million digital downloads to date and has scored three consecutive smash hits from his debut album (the #1 “Small Town USA”; Top 5 “Backwoods”; and Top 20 “How I Got To Be This Way”). His self-titled album, which debuted in the Top 10 of the Billboard Top 200, was recognized as one of the best albums of 2009 by The New York Times and garnered him a CMT Music Award nomination.
