Such a great night last night in Baltimore at The Lyric for Justin Moore’s “Hell On A Highway Tour.” If you read the Morning Hangover regularly, you know I think Justin is one of the most under-appreciated performers in this genre. The one thing I’ll say about a Justin Moore show is you’ll never come away thinking that you didn’t get your money’s worth. Justin gives his fans every ounce of everything he’s got. As he says during the show, “We don’t do a whole lot of bull-shitting up here, we just play good country music.” If that jives with you then this is a guy worth spending a few bucks to see.

Interwoven with the movie are Hayes’ three music videos for songs “You Should Be Loved,” “More” and “This Girl.”
