Justin Moore Struggles Trying to Be a Hands-on Dad and Touring Artist
Justin Moore lives a double life. On one hand, he’s a father of two and a devoted husband. But on the other hand, his successful country music career keeps him on the road and in the recording studio. As much as Moore loves hitting the road, he admits that it’s no fun saying goodbye to his wife and his two girls.
Even though some dads complain about getting no sleep with a new baby in the house, the ‘Til My Last Day’ singer doesn’t seem to mind too much.
“You know when you’re at home, you’re thinking about the fact that, ‘Man, maybe I need to get on the road to get some sleep,’” Moore says (courtesy of Valory Music Co.). “But the minute the bus pulls up and you’ve gotta tell your daughters and your wife bye for a week or whatever it is, you immediately think, ‘ehhh, not sleeping’s not too bad.’”
Moore is a proud father to two-and-a-half year-old Ella and four-and-a-half month-old Kennedy. He wakes up early with his girl Ella, so that his wife can get some rest.
“I can’t do as much as my wife right now for Kennedy, but we split the responsibilities and the duties up,” he says. “I change a lot of diapers. I think I get that from my dad. He was always real hands-on and does everything. I don’t know how these dads get by without changing diapers … I wouldn’t feel good about myself if I didn’t do that.”
Luckily, sometimes the Moore family travels on tours together, so Justin can keep delivering old favorites like ‘Small Town USA’ and ‘Backwoods,’ plus new hits to his fans.
