Justin Moore is back with a nostalgic new single that is guaranteed to have fans reminiscing upon the days when life wasn’t so complicated.

Out now, “We Didn’t Have Much” finds Moore looking back on his small-town upbringing and appreciating the simple things in life, like Sunday dinners with family and making memories at the swimming hole. Although they “didn’t have much,” the singer acknowledges that they truly felt like they had it all.

“There was dirt on daddy’s clothes/ From putting that bacon on mama’s stove/ Dog barking in the yard at a truck we don’t know/ All we had was us/ And that little bitty house and a lotta love/ We had it all when we didn’t have much,” he sings on the chorus.

“We Didn’t Have Much” was co-written by Jeremy Stover, Randy Montana and Paul DiGiovanni and co-produced by Stover and Scott Borchetta.

“I’m really excited to get ‘We Didn’t Have Much’ out to Country radio,” Moore says. “It sounds different than any other song we’ve released to radio in my career. I think it’s a poignant lyric for this time in our lives also. 2020 has led my family and I to lead a more simple life than what we are accustomed to. This song speaks to the beauty in that simplicity.”

The sentimental tune is the lead single from Justin Moore‘s forthcoming sixth studio album. The project is expected to arrive sometime in 2021.
