Peewee Moore was born and raised in the foothills of the Appalachian Rainforest just across the TN border in Fort Oglethorpe, GA, but these days he spends most of his time on the road logging more than 45,000 miles a year performing an endless string of one night stands, honky-tonks, dance halls, festivals, and theaters.
Peewee has shared the stage with several of his hero’s over the years including, Kris Kristofferson, Billy Joe Shaver, David Allen Coe, Ralph Stanley, Dwight Yoakam, and Charlie Daniels, just to name a few. “Every time I get to play with a hero of mine that’s still alive I’m blown away by it. It’s an honor and a blessing every time,” he said.
Peewee started playing guitar when he was just nine years old. And it was the family influences that steered his musical path from there. “I grew up listening to Waylon, and Willie, and Johnny Cash, and guys like that from my mom and my uncles. They were musicians and big into the outlaw movement,” he said. “That really turned me on to that kind of music and it just stuck with me.” He actually formed his first band in elementary school.
As an award winning and highly acclaimed Outlaw Country Singer/Songwriter, his new CD, Making Sure The Story’s Being Told, has country, Americana, and hints of Honky-tony all throughout the songs. “The outlaw part is just my way of not conforming to the mainstream music,” he said. “I’m just trying to do it my own way. But I’ve always been a fan of Hank Williams and Ernest Tubbs, and guys like that. I love all that stuff.” And it shows up all over Peewee’s music.
Nearly all of the songs on this new CD are Peewee originals, however there are a few covers mixed in as well. “There were songs that were in my repertoire that I’ve done for years and just really have a special place in my heart,” he said.
