Country Star Stops Performance… And Begins Chills-Inducing Rendition Of The National Anthem

Justin Moore holds his hat across his chest as he sings on stage

Justin Moore clearly knows how to listen to his fans, as proven at a recent concert. The show took place in Ohio — during the popular Country Fest, to be more specific. A whole list of beloved country stars performed that day, including Lainey Wilson and Thomas Rhett. Although they were all spectacular, Moore’s time on stage continues to stand out to fans. Just when Moore was about to start playing his 2019 hit, The Ones That Didn’t Make It Back Home, the crowd began to cheer “USA.” Moore could have moved on to the song he had planned but, instead, he used this moment to show some patriotism.

“We don’t do this often, but sometimes when it’s that strong, we decide to do this right here,” Moore says to the audience as he prepares to sing The National Anthem, “and I think it’s the only thing that we could do that’s anything close to appropriate.”

With his hat removed, and a hand across his heart, Moore gave an a capella rendition of The Star-Spangled Banner that greatly moved the crowd. Moore invites them to join along as he sings, and they’re more than happy to do just that.

Fittingly, this performance just so happened to take place on June 14 — this is both Flag Day and when the United States Army was founded in 1775. How fitting! Fans can’t stop raving over this patriotic moment, no matter if they were able to witness it in person or online.

“One of the most underrated country music artists of the last 20 years,” one fan writes in the comments, with another adding, “I have chills watching this on here. Love this respect.”
