Justin Moore recently released his new album, Late Nights and Longnecks, and one thing he won’t be doing is turning to social media to see what his fans think of his latest project.
The singer/songwriter and father of four chooses to stay away from social media, mostly because of the negativity it brings into his life.
“I used to [use it] and it would drive me crazy because there’d be a hundred positive [comments] and then one bad one, and then it just sends me into a tailspin,” he admits. “I’m too fragile for that, I guess.”
Another reason why Moore chooses to stay away from reading feedback on social platforms is that he has come to the realization that no matter how hard he tries, he can’t please everyone.
“The other aspect of that is I’m hopeful that every single person loves my music, which I know is not a possibility,” he confesses. “So, that being said, I don’t really make music for anybody other than myself. I’m hopeful that fans can relate to it but I just kinda always make albums for me and kind of let the chips fall where they may. But if I were to start reading critics and all that stuff it would drive me nuts.”
Moore’s latest release isn’t likely to spark a lot of negativity because it is reminiscent of his earlier albums, which is something he set out to do when he went into the studio.
“I just really wanted to make an album that I would consider to be the most traditional one we’ve recorded and that was kind of the goal going in,” he previously shared. “I think my hardcore fans are gonna absolutely love this album and that was kind of the goal is to create a project that they go, ‘Man I absolutely love this. This sounds like vintage Justin.”
Late Nights and Longnecks features 10 tracks, including his latest radio hit, “The Ones That Didn’t Make It Back Home.”
