Justin Moore Radio Gives Fans Unique Insight Into the Artist's Musical Influences
SAN DIEGO, July 7, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- Justin Moore and Slacker, Inc. today launched Justin Moore Radio, a radio station featuring songs from the country music artist from Poyen, Arkansas and songs that have inspired his traditional country and Southern rock sound, along with comments and introductions from Justin himself. Songs from Justin's career are featured on the station including those from his latest chart-topping album Outlaws Like Me. Justin Moore Radio is now available for free in the Artist Showcase section of the Slacker Radio application on the web, for the iPad, on home entertainment devices and on all leading smartphones.
Artist Showcase is a special category that can be found on any Slacker Radio application and includes artist stations unique to Slacker Radio, featuring a wide range of artists and genres. The Justin Moore Radio station can also be accessed directly on the web at: www.Slacker.com/JustinMoore.
"I get excited any time I get to play music I love and I had a great time playing DJ on Slacker Radio," said Justin Moore. "We mixed music from my two albums together with some of my all-time favorite songs. When fans listen to the channel, I think they'll be surprised with how diverse it is. Even though I'm no doubt a country artist, I've been influenced by a lot of genres and it's cool to be able to play them all in one spot!"
Justin Moore Radio was programmed by the country music artist himself. The station provides listeners with Justin Moore hits, an array of hundreds of hand-picked favorites from a range of bands and artists such as Brooks & Dunn, Dwight Yoakam, Bad Company and Jamey Johnson, as well as commentary from Justin Moore on the songs that have influenced him the most.
"Music is an incredibly powerful form of expression and everyone connects with it differently," said Scott Riggs, Director of Radio at Slacker. "Working with Justin Moore to build a station of his favorite music and discuss its importance gives us and his fans incredible insight into the songs that have inspired and shaped him to be the successful country music artist that he is today."
Whether listening on the web, BlackBerry smartphones, iPhone, iPad and iPod touch, Android-powered smartphones, webOS smartphones, a Slacker-enabled Sony TV or Blu-ray player (or any of the many available devices that support Slacker Radio), Justin Moore Radio listeners have instant access to the artist's favorite music along with artist profiles, album reviews and album cover art.
