The Arkansas native and hit singer/songwriter will perform a free public concert on Friday Sept. 13 at the University of Arkansas, beginning at 7 p.m. Held in parking lot 56 on campus, the special event is sponsored by Razorback Athletics and will be a part of Family Weekend, which amps up the excitement for the Arkansas’ home football game against Southern Mississippi at Donald W. Reynolds Razorback Stadium on Saturday, Sept. 14. Justin will attend the game as a special guest of the University of Arkansas, cheering on his favorite team … the Razorbacks!
“I'm thrilled to marry two things that I love together, Country music
and the Arkansas Razorbacks,” Justin said. “There is no better place
for me to play on a Friday night than my home state of Arkansas and no
better place to be on a Saturday than up on the hill. “The fact that we
can do both at the same time, is very cool. Not to mention, it
coincides with the album coming out. Can't wait to call the Hogs!”
“We are pleased to help kick off the University of Arkansas’ Family
Weekend with a free concert by Arkansan Justin Moore,” Vice Chancellor
and Director of Athletics Jeff Long said. “We appreciate Justin coming
to be a part of this special weekend that brings families together for a
variety of activities throughout campus. The concert will also be an
opportunity for country music fans to get exclusive content from Justin.
We hope fans will take advantage of this opportunity to return to
campus and enjoy some great music the night before we take on Southern
Justin, who was raised in Poyen and currently resides in Little Rock,
will perform songs from his first two GOLD-certified albums, JUSTIN MOORE and OUTLAWS LIKE ME, which debuted at #1 on the Billboard Country Albums chart.
The projects include three #1 hits – “Small Town USA,” “If Heaven
Wasn’t So Far Away” and “Til’ My Last Day” – many of which he co-wrote
from experiences in Arkansas. He will also debut new music from his
upcoming album OFF THE BEATEN PATH, including his latest Top 10
“Point At You,” slated for release on 9/17. Justin will also stick
around after Friday night’s concert to sign autographs and pose for
pictures with fans.
Further displaying some homestate pride, Justin and Razorback Athletics
are teaming to offer custom merchandise. An exclusive package (limited edition CD, official Razorback branded Justin Moore t-shirt) will also be available in the tent outside of Hog Heaven at Bud Walton Arena.
