When Justin Moore released a video of a duet he recorded with his dad earlier this year, he became a local online sensation.

The duet garnered more than 265,000 views, and countless comments about the talent that he shared with his opera singing father.

“It started on a high note and it gave me a sense of accomplishment and maybe some validation that I needed,” Moore said.

Since then, he’s put out other videos but none have been as popular as that duet, but he’s not fazed.

“If I hadn’t gotten that and I was doing what I am doing now, I wouldn’t be as likely to persevere,” he said.

So they’ve teamed up again to sing a song that Moore and his dad have shared a love of for as long he can remember — Rascal Flatts’ Bless The Broken Road.

“It’s a song my dad and I have always been singing. If he’s ever at a piano it’s the first one he’d sing,” Moore said.

“The lyrics apply to everyone and the melody… it just doesn’t get any better than that.”

Creating music during a pandemic has its challenges, but he and his dad have been self-isolating so they came together for this number.

“And I hired a piano player on cyber, so he did that, we did the harmonies together,” he said.

He feels pretty good about how it all turned out and hopes it will resonate with his YouTube audience because he knows he won’t likely be able to do a live performance in the days ahead.

There had been plans for a show in Vernon’s Polson Park in August but it’s been cancelled. Moore hopes another opportunity to engage an online audience will be around the corner.
