Our soldiers have a special place in the hearts of every country artist and patriot out there, and we do our best to honor them and the services that they render to our motherland. And now, it includes Justin Moore and his heartbreaking song.

Moore joins the roster of unforgettable tributes to soldiers in a song called “The Ones That Didn’t Make It Back Home.”

The tribute to the fallen soldiers is timeless, in an unfortunate sense. The way Moore sets up the song in a picturesque America imagery makes us wonder which war he was talking about.  Then, it begs the question, just how many wars have we been in? And how many more will we be in?

“The Ones That Didn’t Make It Back Home” was born from a tradition that Justin Moore does at every single one of his concerts. For a number of years, he’d asked his fans to raise a glass to those who died fighting for American freedom overseas. And one day, it just hit him to make a good song out of that tradition.

Backstory

Moore mentioned that the song is dedicated to everyone who didn’t make it back home, not just the soldiers.

” [The song is] dedicated to ALL the ones that didn’t make it back home. Soldiers, first responders, doctors, nurses, teachers, students… every person who made the ultimate sacrifice, while fighting for what and whom they love.”

Furthermore, Moore shared that the song was inspired by his grandparents and their time serving the Navy and Air Force. According to one of his interviews with PopCulture.com, his family comes from a long line of military men which, in turn, inspired him to be more respectful and appreciative of the efforts our soldiers put out.

He also shared that it was really great to have a number one song, it was more important to him to have a song that resonated with other people.

“But it’s really cool when you have a song that genuinely touches people and impacts their lives. Having that chance to go across the country and hear from people face to face in meet and greets and whatnot, how much that song helped them through a difficult time, I thought, ‘Wow, that’s pretty cool. It would be nice to have another one of those type songs. It was more special than just a hit song in other words.”

“The Ones That Didn’t Make It Back Home” will be on Moore’s upcoming Late Nights and Longnecks album, which will be released on the 26th of July.
