debuted the video for “The Ones That Didn’t Make It Back Home”
, the first single from his fifth studio album titled ‘Late Nights and Longnecks,’
due April 26th
via The Valory Music Co. (a division of Big Machine Label Group). Anyone who has gone to a Justin Moore show knows that each night on stage prior singing “If Heaven Wasn’t So Far Away,”
JM thanks those who risk their lives daily for others — military, first responders (police, EMTs, firefighters) and nurses. Now, he says teachers unfortunately fall into the category. Directed by Cody Villalobos
, a former EMT, the video features real fire fighters and former policemen as actors, and the classroom is a replica from an elementary school in Nevada. Coincidentally, the piece was filmed on Veterans Day 2018, and former military personnel were on set to help with details on how to wear the gear and the use of the equipment. I love that Justin, true to form, was willing to put out a song that doesn’t necessarily sound like everything you’ll hear on the radio these days. He is as authentic and sincere as they come.
