Thursday Thoughts with the Boots & Whiskey Podcast
Hey everyone! Welcome back to another Thursday Thoughts here with the Boots & Whiskey Podcast. As I am sure you are well aware of by now, this week we had JR the Handler on our show. For those of you who don’t know who JR is he is the tour manager for Justin Moore and the co-host of the Justin Moore Podcast. It was a great conversation if you haven’t heard it yet, go listen to it after reading this article.
Naturally we are going to count down the Top 10 Best Justin Moore Songs to date. Like all our lists, many have been left off, many could be in different places on the list, but at the end of the day, this is what I think…let me know what you think!
10 – We Didn’t Have Much
This song is an absolute classic. It tells an incredible story that I think many of us can relate too. I know I sure as hell can relate to this. As a kid, we weren’t wealthy by any stretch. We were a pay check to pay check family, but I always had what I needed. I definitely had it all and we didn’t have much.
9 – Kinda Don’t Care
I love the sentiment of this song. The idea of, well damn I have been doing all this shit I don’t want to do because I have to and you get the moment where you just don’t give a shit and do what you want to do. Regardless of what you do, good or bad it doesn’t matter and you don’t care. As adults with kids and jobs and such, I am sure we can all relate, right?
8 – You Look Like I Need a Drink
Damn, another JM classic right here. We’ve all been here right? That moment you’re trying to break up with someone or tell someone something you maybe don’t want too cause it’s going to hurt their feelings. And all you can think is “You look like I need a drink.” When you can sense bad news is coming and you just need that drink to ease whatever is about to come.
7 – With A Woman You Love
Well hell, this is my song to my wife for sure. It took me a long time to get this one folks. It’s not always perfect and it’s not always easy, but forever with her won’t be long enough that’s for sure.
6 – Bait a Hook
So I love this song even though the type of guy JM sings about in this song is not me, in the slightest. I am maybe the most worthless male on the planet. I own it. It is what is is. I am terrible at fishing; I don’t own a truck (yet) and can barely change a fucking tire. BUT I think all of these things are important to know in life and well I don’t care that I am 35, I am learning still dammit! HAHA. In today’s climate it’s important for men to strive to be men.
5 – If Heaven Wasn’t So Far Away
This song hits me right in the feels. I am sure it hits many of you too. We all have those people we miss who have passed on. This is on the list to the ones I miss and love. Wish I could talk to ya’ll again.
4 – Airport Bar
This is just a fun ass song. Nothing more, nothing less. I love deep album cuts and I feel that this song is one of those for sure.
3 – Til My Last Day
This song needs no explanation, right? Especially after number 7
2 – Jesus and Jack Daniels
I guess this is another deep track off the same album. Definitley one of my favorite country songs of all time. The imagery and story of this song is absolutely incredible and I am sure many can relate. Turn this one up!
1 – The One’s That Didn’t Make It Back Home
This….this song is the song that made my oldest son fall in love with JM. This song still makes me cry every time it comes on. I don’t care how many times I hear it, I don’t care how old it is now, every time it comes on, the hair on my arms stands and I can feel the rush of grief come over me. This may sound like terrible feelings but I assure you they aren’t. It reminds me every time of the men and women and families who sacrifice so much for all of us here in this beautiful country of ours. This song is for you.
Damn this was a hard list. If I must say, my all time favorite album from JM and really in country music over the last ten plus years has to be ‘Late Nights and Longnecks’. To me, every song on that album is a hit or at least should be. I can’t put that album on and not listen to it straight through without skipping a single song.
I missed some great songs on this list as well like one of my favorites ‘Hank It’. It’s one of the best songs ever in honor of Bosephus himself.
