Country music star Justin Moore appreared on Fox News Channel’s “One Nation with Brian Kilmeade” to discuss his his music career, particularly as regards how it was shaped and informed by his faith and patriotism.
Introducing Moore on his show, Kilmeade first said, “Country music singer-songwriter Justin Moore performed at the All-American concert series this week on Fox and Friends. That song you just heard “Everybody Get Along.” “Get Along” is his hit single with Riley Green. He’s the taller guy who didn’t wear a jacket that appears first on the Tracks list of Moore’s brand new album, “Stray Dog.” The album title is part autobiography, and it describes his authentic, unapologetic, and intrepid career and country and why what you’re about to say and what you see is what you get just a more welcome. Great to see you again. Thank you for have we talked on radio, we saw you on stage, and now we’re in studio. Stray Dog was your manager’s idea? What do you mean?”
Moore, in response, said that his producer “had the idea to write the song” and he did so, eventually turning it into an autobiographical tune. Kilmeade then asked if it was called “Stray Dog” because he is willing to “say what do [he thinks] all the time? Even if it’s not the best thing for your career?” Responding, Moore said that he does do that, even if it makes everyone from his label to his family annoyed.
Kilmeade then noted that Moore is patriotic and conservative, cutting to a video of Moore on stage telling people that his record label demanded he not let audiences know that he’s a conservative. Moore told them that he’s a Republican and then added that no one will take his guns so long as he’s alive , to the raucous applause of his audience.
Adding to that after the clip was over, Moore said, “Well, you know, and that’s, that’s not popular to say that I believe in the Bible. It is mind-blowing. To me. That selection that’s not popular. I believe in the Constitution. It’s mind-blowing to me that that’s political.”
Watch the interview here:
Moore was a vocal supporter of Trump in 2016, saying, “I said a couple of years ago that for the Republican Party to get in the White House it was going to take something completely out of the box in order to make that happen. I think Trump is doing that.”
Adding to that and elaborating on why he likes Trump, namely his dedication to winning, Moore then said, “I like the fact that he evokes a sense of winning, you know? I know it’s offensive to some people, and I’m not going to say I agree with everything he says, clearly. I think he’s just wacky enough to actually go do it. He doesn’t like to lose. I think he’ll win for our country if he were to get in there.”
