Country Star Justin Moore Rocks with Motley Crue’s Vince Neil in ‘Home Sweet Home’ Clip [Video]
The country-fication of Motley Crue has begun. The hard rocking icons will be saluted by a number of top country acts on the upcoming tribute album, 'Nashville Outlaws: A Tribute to Motley Crue' and Justin Moore gets first crack with the new video for 'Home Sweet Home.'
The video (watch above), which just premiered at Rolling Stone, finds Moore onstage, on the road and on the bus with Motley Crue's song and classic video of 'Home Sweet Home' being ever present in the background. Eventually, he decides to perform his own version of the track at a club, with the members of Motley Crue dropping by to check out the set and Vince Neil eventually joining Moore onstage.
"It has been a blast becoming friends with the Motley guys and learning how much they appreciate the history of country music," says Moore. "They are truly one of the most disruptive bands of their generation and I am honored to be able to cover one of my favorite Crue songs of all time. It has been pretty unreal singing with Vince Neil."
Moore definitely got the seal of approval from Motley Crue, with the band choosing to take part in the Shane Drake-directed video, with Neil lending guest vocals and Tommy Lee and Nikki Sixx offering a nod of approval.
The 'Nashville Outlaws' tribute album arrives on Aug. 19, featuring Motley Crue covers done by Darius Rucker, Rascal Flatts, Gretchen Wilson and others. The disc is currently available for pre-order at iTunes and Amazon.
