He has released one album self-titled Justin Moore, which produced four Top 40 singles including the No. 1 “Small Town USA” and the Top Ten single “Backwoods.” Justin’s first radio single, “Back That Thing Up,” reached No. 38 on the U.S. Billboard Hot Country Songs charts. His debut album was part of a special promotion called “So You Want to Be a Record Label Executive.” This promotion placed his music on social networking sites such as MySpace and iLike, where fans were allowed to create play lists comprising 10 of his songs; the top 10 songs picked by the fans were then included on the final album. The CD Justin Moore debuted at No. three on the Top Country Albums charts.

vated about most everything. School bombings, like the Virginia Tech tragedy, make him aware of how fragile life is and how important family is. He writes most of his songs while he’s on the road, which allows him to come home and just spend time with his girls. Phil grew up poor in a hard-working, blue-collar Virginia town and knows the struggles and has developed the work ethics that come with that type of life. Although he currently doesn’t have to worry about choosing between buying milk or gas, he can relate to people in the situation. That lead to his fourth album and current hit “Prayer of a Common Man.” Phil and his music have evolved over the years, and there’s no doubt – the best is yet to come!

After his initial success with El Pueblo Mexican restaurant, Samuel Flores had a new dream, to open a burger restaurant. Sammy’s is all about good food, good service, and good times. Sammy personally designed the entire menu of burgers, fresh chili, and fantastic beer selection. Multiple sports screens reflect Sammy’s love of sports, making this restaurant an ideal spot. Sammy’s new dream is to open a Sammy’s in his home town, Guadalajara.
