Justin Moore has another hit on his hands, thanks to his powerful new single, "The Ones That Didn't Make It Back Home," but what would he be doing if not music?

“It probably would have been something with sports," he reveals in a statement from his label. "I mean I literally went school for two weeks. But what I was gonna do was be a physical therapist or a physical trainer, in the sense that one that traveled with like a baseball team or whether it be college or professional, some kind of ball team. I always thought that would be kind of fun. 

"And right around the time I was graduating high school, my mom had surgery on her leg or something and had to have therapy done. And she was like, ‘I could see you doing that.’  And I was like, yeah, if I could do it with a ball team or something, that’d be cool. So that was kind of always in the back of my mind."
