Justin Moore and Snoop Dogg Talk Softball

Moore Hosts CMT Hot 20 Countdown's Coverage of Celebrity Game

The Major League Baseball All-Star Legends and Celebrity Softball Game this past weekend in Cincinnati was jam packed with fan favorites, including Justin Moore, Cole Swindell and Snoop Dogg.

In addition to some of the biggest names in sports and entertainment were recruited, including Nick Lachey, Josh Hutcherson, Chad Lowe and Macklemore.

Moore even tried on a new hat for the event as host for CMT Hot 20 Countdown.

At the batting cages, the “Lettin’ the Night Roll” singer caught up with renowned rap artist Snoop Dogg to talk game strategy.

“My pregame was the talk with Ozzie Smith and Eric Davis,” the rapper said. “Talk to some real legends and find out what could be my strengths and weaknesses.

“They gave me a couple of tips, even with batting practice. So I found a way to make that eye contact with the ball when it leaves the pitchers hand because I used to watch the ball when it was right there. You got to watch the ball when it leaves his hands to get an understanding of where you wanna hit it at.”

“Yeah, I hope it’s like riding a bike,” Moore replied. “I played baseball for years and years and years and years and years and years.”

“Oh, you played?” Snoop Dogg said. “I never played.”

Baseball may not be his specialty, but music certainly has after maintaining relevance in the industry for more than two decades.

“You gotta have passion for what you do,” he said. “You gotta love what you do. You gotta love it more than anything in life, and it’ll love you back. You gotta be real with it. You gotta always know that being on the edge and making music that feels good to you is what’s important. People love you, so when you make music that feels good to you, most likely it will feel good to them.

Snoop Dogg has his own ties to the country music world, having cut a duet with Willie Nelson several years back. Could a collaboration with Moore be in the works?

“Why not?” he said. “Let’s get it together, baby.”
