Justin Moore was blown away by Priscilla Block the first time he saw her. It's why she's just his second female duet partner ever.

The two sing on "You, Me and Whiskey," a song from his just-released Stray Dog album. I had the chance to sit down with him for a long in-depth conversation, and I wanted to know: Why her?

"She and I played a show together not too long ago," Moore recalls. "I was blown away. I thought she was great, I thought her songwriting was great, she sang great and I thought her rapport with the audience was really impressive."

"I told her that night that if there's anything I can ever do for ya, I'm a fan and I'd be happy to; and then I asked her for a favor — to sing on my album."

After we both shared a laugh at that, Moore got serious once again and said he was glad that she decided to say yes, because Priscilla Block has a tremendous future ahead of her, and that she is on a rocketship to the top.

Moore didn't set out to have a duet on his seventh studio album, it just kind of happened that way. In the end, he is really excited that the song, "You, Me and Whiskey," is out and playing on country radio stations all across America.

15 Country Artists Who Deserve to Be in the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame

With Dolly Parton's 2022 induction into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame — and, even more recently, Willie Nelson's nomination for the 2023 class — it's clearer than ever that country artists have a place in the Cleveland-based institution's hallowed halls. But the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame has always shown love to country performers, to a certain extent: Johnny Cash, Chet Akins, Brenda Lee, the Everly Brothers and Hank Williams are all past inductees.

Based on the criteria the Hall has set forth, that nominees should be acts who have had "a profound impact on youth culture," there are still many more country artists who deserve their spot in the Hall. Flip through the gallery below to see Taste of Country's top picks for who the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame should induct next.
