Justin Moore Earns Emmy Nomination


Justin Moore is an ACM Award winner and his performance in a “Jimmy Kimmel Live!” skit has garnered him a nomination for an Emmy Award in the Outstanding Original Music and Lyrics category for “The Ballad of Claus Jorstad (Devil Stool).”

“If you had told me I would be a part of earning an Emmy nod for singing a song about what I did, I would have thought you were crazy. Haha,” said Moore. “Nonetheless, it’s very cool to hear. I’m excited for Jimmy and his crew. Hopefully, we can bring it home. They told me this week that they would share it with me, so it would be pretty cool to add an Emmy to the mantle.”

Watch the video below of Moore breaking out his great sense of humor during his appearance on the show. The platinum-selling artist performed the song about an unlucky man in Norway who had an unfortunate run-in with an Ikea stool in the shower.

The 2017 Emmy Awards will air live on CBS on Sept. 17 at 8pm. A complete list of 2017’s Emmy Awards nominees is available on
