Moore plays the "Stray Dog"

Friday, February 24, 2023 – Justin Moore's sixth studio album, "Stray Dog," is coming May 5 via The Valory Music Co.

Moore recorded the eight-song disc at Castle Recording Studios in Franklin, Tenn.

"A long time ago I decided I wasn't going to play games or pursue things that didn't make me happy," Moore said. "Perhaps that's made me a bit of an outsider in this industry, but it's also what allows me to go to bed each night feeling good about what I'm doing."

Moore and the band recorded the majority of "Stray Dog" live over several days. Opener "Everybody Get Along" features Riley Green. "In a world where all we do is fight and fuss and disagree," they sing, "why can't everybody get along like you and me?"

The release also includes his chart topping single "With a Woman You Love." "You, Me, And Whiskey" is a duet with Priscillia Block.

On "Stray Dogs," Moore sings, "I'm the wild and free kind of breed that'll always be / Running with the stray dogs."

"It's a really personal, autobiographical song," Moore said. "I've never just gone along with the crowd. I've always tried to follow my heart and let the chips fall where they may, and I'm really proud of that."

The tracklist is:
"Everybody Get Along" (with Riley Green) | Justin Moore, David Lee Murphy, Jeremy Stover
"That Wasn't Jack" | Justin Moore, David Lee Murphy, Chris Stevens, Jeremy Stover
"With A Woman You Love" | Justin Moore, Paul DiGiovanni, Chase McGill, Jeremy Stover
"Better Slow" | Justin Moore, Paul DiGiovanni, Randy Montana, Jeremy Stover
"Stray Dogs' | Justin Moore, Paul DiGiovanni, Randy Montana, Jeremy Stover

"You, Me, And Whiskey" (with Priscilla Block) | Jessi Alexander, Brock Berryhill, Cole Taylor
"Get Rich Or Drunk Trying" | Justin Moore, Casey Beathard, Paul DiGiovanni, Jeremy Stover

Born and raised in Poyen, Ark., Moore landed his first number one with "Small Town USA," the breakout single off his 2009 self-titled debut. The record went Platinum, as did its 2011 follow-up, 'Outlaws Like Me,' which yielded yet another number one single with "If Heaven Wasn't So Far Away."
