Justin Moore falls at the lower end of the height spectrum than other country stars like Trace Adkins, Lady Antebellum‘s Charles Kelley, or Brett Young.
Since Justin’s wife Kate runs the This Little Piggy children’s boutique in Benton, Arkansas, it was only a matter of time before she got her husband to try on some of her larger offerings.
“No, it’s not even size 20,” Justin recalls, remembering what Kate had him try on. “It’s even more ridiculous. It was right after she started getting some stuff in, like clothing in, and it was for teen years kind of stuff.”
“She was like ‘You can probably wear these,'” he continues. “And I’m like, ‘Well, I’m not going to.'”
“You know, fortunately Wrangler takes care of me and sends me stuff, so I don’t need to do this,” Justin explains. “She goes, ‘Yeah, but just go try ’em on.’ And so I’m like, ‘All right, whatever!'”
Much to his dismay, Justin admits the kid-sized clothes fit him.
“Yeah, I think it was like a 14 or 16 or something. And they weren’t any too small. So it’s just more insult to injury for me, just being built like a 14-year-old,” he jokes.
This week, Justin’s standing tall on the country chart as “The Ones That Didn’t Make It Back Home,” becomes the eighth number one of his career so far.
