“I’ve Never Been Dumped!”: Justin Moore’s Surprising Confession About His Latest Hit


With his song about anticipating the end of a relationship knocking on the door to number one, “You Look Like I Need a Drink” hitmaker Justin Moore has something of an usual confession to make.

“Knock on wood, I’ve never been dumped!” the Arkansas native tells ABC Radio. “But had I been, or if I happen to be — hopefully, I’m out of the woods since I’ve been married for 8 or 9 years — I would probably have 10 or 12 drinks, if I had to guess. That’s probably my coping mechanism.”

So how does a 32-year-old father-of-three make it this far without being on the receiving end of a break-up?

“I just never dated!” Justin laughs. “I had a high school sweetheart that I dated for a number of years, and Lord, we shoulda broke up 200 times and didn’t. Then eventually we did. I broke up with her because I met my now-wife. I feel terrible about doing it and dumping her, but I feel like I’m justified in some senses, since I’ve been married and have three children with my wife… my ex, she’s happily married and all that good stuff,” he adds.  

The lead single from Justin’s #1 album, Kinda Don’t Care, currently sits at number three on the charts.
