I've Been Around

Album: Slowheart (2017)
  • This humorous cut was inspired by Moore's real-life experiences. "That song is basically me poking fun at the positions that I've found myself in from what has happened in my career," Moore explained to Billboard. "I'm a kid from South Georgia that has spent most of his life running around barefoot with no shirt, at fishing holes and on backroads."

    "It's a look at some of the places I've been and the characters I've been around," he continued. "I've never cared about material things, but here I am hob-knobbing with these people and drinking thousand-dollar bottles of wine, when I'd be okay if it was a five dollar bottle from down the road. It's just kind of being silly about where my life can go at times."
