Jesus and Jack Daniels

Album: Late Nights and Longnecks (2018)
  • During this introspective, mid-tempo ballad, Justin Moore takes lessons from both his parents as to how to live life.

    Mama loved Jesus, daddy loved Jack Daniels
    She was red letter heaven, he was old number 7
    Between the two of 'em, wasn't nothing that they couldn't handle
    Mama loved Jesus, daddy loved Jack Daniels


    Speaking at a listening session, Moore pointed out that even though he co-wrote the song, it's not autobiographical: His father is actually a teetotaler.
  • Moore co-wrote the song alongside Paul DiGiovanni, Chase McGill and Jeremy Stover. The same quartet of writers also penned the Late Nights and Longnecks lead single "The Ones That Didn't Make It Back Home ."
  • If you think the song title sounds familiar to you, that's because Chase Rice recorded a song titled "Jack Daniels & Jesus" in 2014.
