  • Charlie Daniels adds vocals and fiddle to this pledge of allegiance to living true to principles and never giving into convention. Moore was bowled over that he was able to get the Country icon to contribute to this track. "While I was writing the song, I'm going, I have to somehow some way get Charlie Daniels on this," he told Radio.com. "I don't even know if I want the verse to be on there if he can't do it, because this is so him."

    A month later, Moore played a show with Daniels and asked him to sing. "He told me, 'you tell me when and where and I'll be there,'" the singer recalled. "And to hear that from one of my heroes in this business, I was taken aback."
