There's Only One 'Home Sweet Home' for Justin Moore

The singer's memories of growing up in Poyen, Arkansas, inspired his first No. 1 hit, "Small Town USA," and the tiny town, population 290, also had a starring role in the tune's music video.
Moore – who recorded his newest single, a remake of "Home Sweet Home" featuring Vince Neil (check out the video below) for a collaborative tribute album to Mötley Crüe, out Aug. 19 – has chosen Poyen, once again, to serve as the backdrop for another important project: raising his family, which includes daughters Ella, 4, and Kennedy, 2, plus baby number three, due this month.
"People think I am nuts," Moore tells PEOPLE of the decision to relocate from Nashville. "But I want my girls to run through the cow pasture to my mom and dad's house. I want them to go to school where I went to school. It's important to me to see them growing up and having a normal childhood."
A change of residence isn't the only major move that Moore's made since becoming a family man. The singer – who hit the road after releasing his third album, Off the Beaten Path, in September 2013 – has also cut his touring schedule in half. "This means that I will be home for over 200 days this year," he says. "My 4-year-old just started playing softball. I will be taking her to dance class. These are the things that are tops on my priority list."
One item that isn't high on Moore's personal to-do list? Finding out the sex of baby-to-be.
"I would want to know, but my wife wanted to wait and she wins most battles," he says with a laugh. Still, the singer has a hunch: "I've got all girls as of right now. I am sure I will have another one."
Either way, we're certain that Moore – and the town of Poyen – will welcome their newest addition with open arms.
