In addition to placing hits like “The Ones That Didn’t Make It Back Home” on the chart, Justin Moore is also the proud father of four: daughters Ella, Kennedy, and Klein, who are nine, seven, and five, respectively, plus his two-year-old son, South.
Dressing four little ones also led to another business for Justin and his wife Kate: the children’s boutique named This Little Piggy in Benton, Arkansas.
“It’s an idea that she’s had and wanted to do for a couple of years now,” Justin explains, “and kind of just came out of our own personal experience with having kids and the difficulty that she has clothing them.”
“[T]here are literally zero places back home,” he continues, “and even when we were [in Nashville] there weren’t many… She pretty much has to order everything for our kids.”
“And she goes, ‘I’m telling you, we need to do this,'” he recalls. “‘People want to come in and see and feel.'”
Kate has a degree in business, and Justin’s particularly happy she’s getting to put it to use, since she previously put her own dreams aside so Justin could follow his.
“I’m excited for her to have the opportunity to do something that she’s had a passion for for a while now…” he tells ABC Radio. “She had a good career going when we get together. And I started doing this, so she put that on the back burner for me to be able to to try this out.” (AUDIO IS ABC 1-ON-1)
This Little Piggy opened its doors in Justin’s home state of Arkansas last year. You can check out their offerings online at ShopThisLittlePiggy.com.
