Justin Moore Talks New Album 'Kinda Don't Care'

Justin Moore

(Radio.com) On Friday (August 12), Justin Moore released his latest album, Kinda Don't Care, which he could have titled "How I Learned to Stop Worrying and Love Tape Loops."

He tells Radio.com that, for a long time, he was against using the loops and samples that are prevalent in a lot of county music today. "We didn't use loops, even live, until last year. I was against it. 'We're gonna play our instruments!' But now we've added some of that to the show," he says, noting that none of the samples are backing vocals. "It's fun to tinker with that stuff, it's fun and I think it increases the value of the show."

He's also used some more modern gear in the studio on Kinda Don't Care. "I had apprehensions about some of the 'tricks,' if you will, that we pulled off in the studio this time. But my producer [Jeremy Stover] said to me, 'Man, as long as you're happy with it and enjoy it and love it, the fans are going to as well. You need to not worry about this so much.' And that's kind of where Kinda Don't Care came from. That made sense to me. I said, 'You know what? He's right.'"

He didn't write the title track, but it fit in perfectly with his theme for this album. "The song is one that I had on hold for a couple of years. It may come off a little nonchalant and lackadaisical, but on this album we were really trying to marry that stone-cold country side of what I do, which my music is rooted in, with a more modern sound. We gotta try to keep up with these young cats who are starting now, who have 'hip-ed' it up a little. It was our goal to marry those ideas together as seamlessly as we possibly could. And I hope we did that." Read more here.
