I’m very grateful for the fans, along with my team, which is a ton of folks, from the road guys to management to my label. I’m damn proud to work alongside all of them.”

It’s Justin Cole Moore’s 10th career and 9th Billboard Country Airplay #1 song.
“I think I’m more comfortable in my own skin than I’ve ever been. We’re not out there trying to chase a trend or the hot new sound or whatever, I’m just making as traditional and good of country music as I can, right now. And you know, for whatever reason it’s still working.”
We Didn’t Have Much was written by Randy Montana, Paul DiGiovanni and Jeremy Stover.
“First and foremost, I loved the song and I really related to the song when I heard it. I don’t think it’s any secret, I grew up really rural, close to my family, small town. I mean, we did the cliché stuff, eatin’ dinner together, and I did it begrudgingly. But I had to explain to my parents how school was every day and all those things, all the stuff that I annoy my own children with now. And I thought that the song really expressed the beauty that is leading a more simple life. And so I’ve learned throughout my career that if I’m goin’ through somethin’ or if I relate to somethin’, it seems to be somethin’ that a lot of folks relate to.”
“I think my favorite lyric from the song is A dog barkin in the yard at a truck we don’t know. I know I grew up with dogs and a lot of my friends grew up with dogs. They’re protective, especially when a truck pulls into the yard and they don’t recognize the truck. So that one kinda hit home for me.”
Humbling that country radio has continued to support my music after all these years. It’s something I don’t take for granted. I’m very grateful for those folks, the fans, and my team around me. Cheers to We Didn’t Have Much being our 10th #1 song on country radio 🍻 pic.twitter.com/bJsgpWgXnH

“Throughout this whole window of time that we’ve all been dealing with COVID and the pandemic et cetera, I know my family has gotten back to a more simple way of life if you will. And I think this song is very very poignant if that were to apply to your life as well. Not concerned with certain things that sometimes we get wrapped up in on a day-to-day basis, and now going and borrowing eggs and flour and stuff from your neighbors and all that good stuff that we maybe had gotten away from. I know myself and my family had done that throughout this time. I think this song is very time-sensitive in that regard.”
“I signed my record deal in 2007, and shoot, I just hoped to have a hit or two and be able to play for the rest of my life off of that. The fact that we’re still doing it, and for whatever reason having hits every year since then, I don’t know what to attribute it to. But I’m damn thankful for it. It’s been a fun ride.”
“At the end of the day, I make music for the fans, but I make it more so for myself, and I’ve gotta be proud of it and love it. Otherwise I ain’t gonna wanna go out and sing it onstage every night.”
