Education and early life

Justin was raised as an only child in Poyen, by his mother Charlene Webb Moore and father Tommy Ray Moore; not many details have been disclosed about his parents, because Justin respects their privacy, but it’s believed that they are ranch owners.

He fell in love with music at the age of 14, but was interested in a number of other activities during his teenage years, including playing soccer with his peers and appearing in school plays. Justin studied at a local high school in Poyen, and was 17 when he joined his uncle’s rock ‘n’ roll band; he matriculated in 2002, then moved to Nashville, Tennessee rather than enroll at college.

In Nashville, Justin met a music producer who introduced him to the founder of Big Machine Label Group, Scott Borchetta, who promised Justin that he would sign him to his label if he were to be patient.

Justin’s music career

Justin was signed to Valory Music Group in the summer of 2008, an imprint of Big Machine Records.
