OFFSTAGE: Justin Moore's Road Trip to Heaven

(CMT Offstage keeps a 24/7 watch on everything that's happening with country music artists behind the scenes and out of the spotlight.)

You can't find heaven on a Google map. You can't ask your navigation system to direct you there. And yet, somehow, Justin Moore has me feeling like heaven might just make the perfect road trip. You could look up old friends, introduce your kids to your grandpa, ask Hank why he took those pills and then be back in a couple days. Moore recently released the 2006 Rhett Akins' song "If Heaven Wasn't So Far Away," and while it wasn't a big hit for Akins, I'm betting it will be for Moore. The idea -- and it's a damn good one -- is that losing your loved ones wouldn't be so hard to take if heaven wasn't so far away. And it sounds like Moore could use a road trip himself after the cold and snowy winter in Nashville. "I'm a sissy, though. I just hate cold weather. You know, I'm not built for it. I'm pretty much just bones ... and a little bit of skin," he told CMT Radio. "I don't have anything to keep me warm."
