COUNTRY SUPERSTAR JUSTIN MOORE HONORED BY HOMETOWN WITH 2015 ARKANSAS TRAVELER AWARD
He sings about his love for small-towns, and it’s clear those small towns love him back. With multiple No. 1 chart-toppers and several national tours under his belt, country superstar and “Small Town U.S.A.” hit-maker Justin Moore has never forgotten where he came from. Last weekend, the Poyen, Arkansas native was honored with the prestigious “Arkansas Traveler Award” from his home state, recognizing the love and support he displays for the state he calls home.
Pictured to the right, Moore was presented with the award by Arkansas Governor, Asa Hutchinson, during a hometown celebration in Poyen last weekend.
To say Moore has a love for Arkansas is an understatement. One simple Internet search will spawn countless records of Moore expressing admiration for his home state and their many sports teams, especially the Razorbacks. Moore’s pride in Arkansas and rural life have made an impact on his music, especially his first No. 1 hit “Small Town USA,” which he co-wrote while feeling homesick after moving to Nashville. In 2014, Moore and his family moved back to Arkansas, where they still reside today.
