[photogallerylink id=60276 align=right] Congratulations are in order for [lastfm link_type=""]Justin Moore[/lastfm]. His song “If Heaven Wasn’t So Far Away” has topped the country singles chart. The song became his fastest rising single to date just weeks after its release, and now it’s number one.
“My favorite line in the song is [in the chorus]: ‘If heaven wasn’t so far away / I’d pack up the kids and go for the day / Introduce them to their grandpa / Watch ‘em laugh at the way he talks,” Jones is one of the writers of the song and also goes on to say: “I’m from south Georgia, and my accent has been diluted over time. My grandpa used to have a really thick accent, my Dad’s was little less thick, and mine is less. When I take [my kids] back to meet people from there, they hear how the accent is so pronounced. I love that part of the song.” Justin Moore’s first number one song was with his hit “Small Town USA.” Moore tweeted yesterday morning: ”THANK YOU COUNTRY RADIO and FANS for giving me my second #1 record with ‘if heaven wasn’t so far away!’” ”Y’all are unbelievable!!!”
