How Luke Bryan Gave Justin Moore the Name of His New Tour

Justin Moore‘s just announced his latest headlining tour, which will kick off on October 13th in Monroe, Louisiana, and run through April of next year, but if it weren’t for Luke Bryan, the name of the “Hell on a Highway” Tour probably wouldn’t be as cool as it is.

It’s named for a track on Justin’s latest album, Kinda Don’t Care, but before the song made it onto Justin’s album, it was was one Luke Bryan had on hold to possibly include on his forthcoming album. Once Justin heard Luke had the song on hold, he figured it was lost forever, but when the president of Justin’s record label, Scott Borchetta, heard Justin’s version, Scott was determined that Justin should have it.

“So I said, ‘Well I’ll just text or call Luke,’” Justin recalls in a statement from his label. “And I don’t remember which one I did, but he hit me back and said, ‘Man, if you love it, take it.’ And that speaks volumes of the type guy that Luke is. Luke and I have known each other since either of us had a record deal, so we’ve known each other a long time.”
