The first time Justin Moore heard what would become his new single, “If Heaven Wasn’t So Far Away,” it struck an emotional chord with him because his own life was reflecting the song’s storyline. He explains, “If Heaven Wasn’t So Far Away” is one of those songs you hear one time, and know immediately that it’s special. Everybody, unfortunately, can relate to the lyrics in this song. It’s a part of life. You have to go through losing loved ones. Personally, I went through it a year ago losing my grandpa and aunt in the same week.” Justin continues, “The great thing about this song is that it will make you laugh and cry, and evoke every other emotion you can think of. To me, that’s what country music is all about. That’s why I make it, love it, and live it. I’m thrilled that everyone is just as excited about it as I am. I want to say a HUGE thank you to country radio for playing it early for us. I can’t wait to play this song all across the country this year.” A special behind-the-scenes video of Moore recording “If Heaven Wasn’t So Far Away” in the studio can be seen at CMT.com.
