While some may find this duo surprising, Justin said their voices, personalities, and camaraderie with one another has been a perfect fit since they first met.

“She and I played a show together 2 years ago or something like that — an acoustic benefit show — it was me and Lee [Brice] and a bunch of us knuckleheads about the same age and then her and I remember thinking that night, ‘That was intimidating to me when I was a brand new artist,’” Justin said of the first time he met Block.

“She stole the show! She sang her butt off, her songs were well-written and great, her rapport with the audience was awesome and I was just really impressed with her. So I went up to her after the show and said, ‘Hey, I’m Justin. I don’t know what I could ever do for ya, but if I can do anything, I’m a fan, here’s my number. Reach out.’”

As it turns out, a few months down the line, Justin was the first to reach out for a favor by asking Block to join him on “You, Me and Whiskey.”

“Two, three, four months after that, this song kind of came across my desk and I ask her for a favor— to sing on my song,” Justin said.

It’s been a natural fit for Moore and Block who also hit the road this Spring together.

“She’s great,” Moore continued. “She’s got a really bright future ahead. She’s been on the road with us this Spring and she’s really really good. I’m a really big fan and will do anything I can to help her. She’s teaching me to use TikTok and all this stuff I had no idea how to use.”

“You, Me and Whiskey” can be heard on Justin’s brand new album, Stray Dog, available now.

“I’m proud of it,” Justin said of the project. “I think the longer you do something —regardless of what industry you’re in — I think, you should get better and more comfortable and I certainly feel that way the older I get and the more opportunities I get to record albums.”
