Justin Moore Talks New Album 'Off The Beaten Path'
The song is also the lead single from Moore's third studio album Off the Beaten Path, which hit stores yesterday (Sept. 17). Told from the male point of view in a relationship, "Point at You" is a love song…of sorts. The guy in the song claims that he's got "a wild side" that's "at least a country mile wide." However, if you want to see his "sweet," "soft" and, as he puts it, "best side," that's where the title comes in: he simply points to his female partner.
During a recent interview, Moore told Radio.com that, prior to his chart-topping success with his previous No. 1. single, last year's "Til My Last Day," he may never have paid attention to "Point at You." That's because, as the Arkansas native admitted, before that point "I didn't really do any love songs." When he heard "Point at You," though, it struck him as "a perfect extension" of "Til' My Last Day."
"I'm really careful about love songs and outside songs that I cut," he explained. But "Point at You" passed the test. "I just thought this one was so me, that I was all about it. I try to find songs that are as real as possible. And all the things in this song I've done…or would do," he continued, with a chuckle.
So when it comes to having both a "wild side" and a "soft side," how does Moore himself balance those out in his music–and, specifically, on Off the Beaten Path?
"I think there are songs on this album that do both," he answered. As an example, he mentions the song "That's How I Know You Love Me." He didn't write it, but to him, "it's one of the most truthful, straight-to-the-point songs about me and my wife's relationship that I've ever heard. So I think that shows a bit of both." He also describes the song as not only "probably my favorite song off the album," but "probably my favorite song I've ever recorded." more on this story
