With just under a month until the release of his new album, Late Nights and Longnecks, Justin Moore continues to tease fans with new songs, including “Someday I Gotta Quit,” released today.
Written by Moore, Casey Beathard, Paul DiGiovanni, and Jeremy Stover, the song follows in the footsteps of the other tracks released so far. Like “On the Rocks,” “Jesus and Jack Daniels,” and “The Ones That Didn’t Make it Back Home,” “Someday I Gotta Quit,” shows Moore flexing his traditional country side. With a little bit of outlaw, a little bit of liquor, a little bit of remorse and a whole lotta twang, “Someday I Gotta Quit” has all the essential elements of a classic country tune.
The song starts with darker music, Moore’s deep voice crooning of the mistakes he’s made. However, on the chorus, the track picks up as he admits that he has many vices that someday he’s gotta quit. “Between the whiskey and the nicotine/ The wrong girls and the right jeans/ And all the other fires that keep burning me I keep lit/ It ain’t never gonna happen, some say/ Oh but somehow, someway, someday I gotta quit.”
“Someone asked me about drinking or something one night,” Moore shared with American Songwriter. “I just simply said, ‘Yeah someday I gotta quit.’ It made me think of things we all talk about as it pertains to our own personal struggles, whatever they may be. I threw the idea out to my co-writers, and we just ran with the fictional story about the guy in the song who has his own set of struggles. Hopefully, everyone can relate, regardless of what their struggles are personally. No doubt, we all have them.”
“Someday I Gotta Quit” is now available everywhere you buy or stream music. Take a listen below and check out more new recently released music here on our ‘New Country Music’ playlist. Be sure to give the playlist a follow for your weekly new country music fix.
