What inspires Justin Moore? Artists with longevity, for one.

“I really admire artists like Strait and McGraw,” he says through his record label. “There are artists out there who seem to just get better and better and better like a couple of those guys I just mentioned that’s so inspiring to an artist such as myself. You know I feel like I’ve been doing it a while but compared to them I haven’t been, so it’s inspiring to me to continue to grind and not only write but find the best music I can and record the best music I can.”

This week that “grind” includes the concert special Justin Moore: Live From Phoenix on AT&T Audience. The event was filmed on location during the AT&T Block Party at the 2017 NCAA March Madness Music Festival. “They don’t call it that for no reason,” he says through his publicist. “I’m a big sports fan, so the opportunity to do anything with any sport – but in particular the Final Four – is really cool.” The show airs Friday at (6/23) at 9pm ET.
