Drop and give Justin Moore 20 pushups!
No, not really, but can you imagine if he were your personal trainer, working with you in a gym, demanding you push yourself to the physical limits?
Apparently, it could have happened.
But if you know anything about Moore, you know music is his real passion, and a gig like personal training would have been his Plan B.
And like most driven and determined folks reaching for their dreams, Moore wasn’t keen on having a backup plan.
“I always thought if you had a Plan B, it meant you were giving up on Plan A before you got it going or gave it a shot,” he said in a recent interview. “Which, to kids out there, don’t go by my logic, ’cause sometimes Plan A doesn’t work out.”
Fortunately for Moore, Plan A did work out, and now he lives his country music dream every day. And though any other plan he might have entertained at some point may now be on the back burner, he admits that the thought of being a physical trainer for a professional sports team did, at one point, intrigue him. There was the excitement of the game and the travel. But, then again, those same elements can be found in his daily life on tour.
“I’m not really doing anything that different than that now,” he said. “Obviously, it’s not in the medical field, but I would have been traveling on weekends and seeing different parts of the country and beyond, and that’s what I’m doing right now.”
Yes, but he’s also winning fans and thrilling crowds with his music along the way, which is ultimately what he is supposed to be doing in life.
One thing is for sure. If the “Lettin’ the Night Roll” singer ever does envision another Plan B, it will not involve a cubicle in an office building.
“After I’ve done what I’ve done for so long, I could never go to work 9 to 5 for somebody in an office,” he said. “I would have to have flexibility to kinda go and come as I please.”
