Justin Moore has been going to the ACM Awards in Las Vegas for years now, but this time he’s headed out there as a first-time nominee in the New Artist of the Year category. Justin’s wife, Kate, is especially excited for this trip to Sin City.
Justin explains to ABC News Radio with a laugh, “I’m gonna go out there in a good mood now. No, that’s what my wife keeps saying. She goes, ‘Yes! You’re gonna be happy!'”
Justin relies on Kate to make sure he doesn’t get in too much trouble during his down time in Las Vegas.
“My wife generally goes with me, which is a lot of fun,” Justin says, “and I have a babysitter, obviously. So, she knows I don’t do nothing too stupid.”
This year, Justin and Kate are turning the ACM Awards trip into a vacation for their friends, too.
He says, “We’re gonna take two of our couple friends with us and kinda make it a little trip, so it’ll be a good time.”
Justin is nominated for New Artist of the Year along with Kip Moore and Brett Eldredge. Voting is open at VoteACM.com. The 49th Annual ACM Awards air Sunday night at 8 p.m. ET on CBS.
