If there’s anything I love more, its country music shows in small venues. And this Justin Moore show was no exception, let me tell you.
Justin Moore brought his one-of-a-kind concert experience to The Lyric Theater in historic Oxford, Mississippi, home to Ole Miss. I have been to this small venue twice before, and it has grown to be one of my favorite places to be. There’s nothing like being right there, front & center, while 18-year-old college kids attempt to crawl over you and shove you against the stage. Its a rite of passage for any country music fan and you haven’t experienced music until you’ve experienced that.

The night started off with two opening acts before Moore, which were Blackjack Billy and Dustin Lynch. Blackjack Billy performed an accoustic set, while Dustin had a full band. Both acts were full of energy and kept the crowd well-entertained before Moore took the stage at around 10 PM.
Justin performed many songs that night, including his hits “Backwoods”, “I Could Kick Your Ass”, “Back That Thing Up”, “If Heaven Wasn’t So Far Away”, and his new single “Bait A Hook”, among several others. The night also included a touching version of “Small Town USA”, which Justin didn’t sing too much of, because the audience took care of that for him. He took a seat on the stage and stared in awe at the audience, shaking his head with a smile as the audience continuously sung his first #1 hit. Moore also sung a rousing rendition of Josh Thompson’s ”Way Out Here”. The audience sung along to every single word and that put an instant smile on Justin’s face.
Overall, the night was rowdy and wild, just as any Justin Moore should be. And I’m looking very forward to seeing him opening for Miranda Lambert in Tupelo, MS on 9/22!
