The story behind “Til My Last Day” by Justin Moore…
Justin Moore penned “Til My Last Day”with his producer Jeremy Stover and Brian Dean Maher, who also co-wrote several tracks on Justin Moore. The singer said, “Till My Last Day’ is my wife’s favorite song on the album and probably the softest thing that I’ve ever done. It shows a little bit of a different side of me. I’m blessed to have a great wife that supports me, and my music and everything I do. I wasn’t always the best boyfriend or husband and this song kind of speaks to that. It’s one of the coolest tracks on the album and really features the slide guitar.”

This is the first track recorded by Moore about his relationship with his wife Kate. She was so touched about Justin’s love song to her that she had some of the words engraved on a gift for her husband. “My wedding ring was kind of big on me and slapping people’s hands on stage, it almost came off a couple times,” the Arkansas native revealed to GAC. “So, she got me a new ring and she got engraved in it some lyrics, ‘I can love you the best.'”

Moore admitted to GAC that he tried not to get too soft with this romantic ballad. “It sounds different than anything I’ve ever cut,” he acknowledged. “I was listening to a ZZ Top song, ‘Rough Boy,’ and I just liked the groove of it and I thought ‘Well, that still sounds tough. I could sing something like that.’ So, we sat and wrote that song. I think it came out good.”

This is one of several hits picked out for Justin by Kate. “I have to give credit to my wife,” he said. “She’s the one that told me it was time for me to do something different. And thankfully I listened, which she’ll tell you I don’t do very often. But my wife’s right a lot more than I am, I’ll admit that. But she calls them pretty good. She called ‘Small Town U.S.A.’ and “If Heaven Wasn’t So Far Away.’ She’s like, ‘Those are #1s.'”

On the country chart dated January 5, 2013, “Til My Last Day” became Moore’s first Number One country hit on the Country Airplay chart, and his third overall.

LYRICS: Written Justin Moore, Jeremy Stover and Brian Dean Maher
People say I’m just a rough boy
I ain’t no good for you girl
It’s a dead end street, tryin’ to love me
Yeah, I’ll wreck your world
I can see why they’re all talkin’
Lookin’ back at my past
I’ve got a bad name, but a man can change
I’m livin’ proof of that

Til my last day, til my last breath
Of everyone that can, I can love you the best
Til my last day, I’ll be lovin’ you
All the way up, til they lay me down
Six feet under the cold hard ground
Til my last day, I’ll be lovin’ you

Baby I might meet all my friends
Shoot the bull, have a beer or two
But you know I’ll be the first one to leave
In a hurry to get to you
Somewhere deep inside your angel eyes
I found a place to rest,
Don’t ever doubt that I’ll be around,
And baby don’t you ever forget

Til my last day, til my last breath
Of everyone that can, I can love you the best
Til my last day, I’ll be lovin’ you
All the way up, til they lay me down
Six feet under the cold hard ground
Til my last day, I’ll be lovin’ you
Darlin’ yes I will

Til my last day, til my last breath
Of everyone that can, I can love you the best
Til my last day, I’ll be lovin’ you
All the way up, til they lay me down
Six feet under the cold hard ground
Til my last day, I’ll be lovin’ you
Oh babe, til my last day
